Atlanta Homes & Lifestyles magazine opened the doors to its 11th-annual Home for the Holidays Designer Showhouse & Marketplace on November 13th. The showhouse, which benefits Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta, is located on nearly five private sprawling acres and is the result of a meticulous renovation by luxury Atlanta architecture firm Harrison Design and developer The O’Donnell Group. Eighteen interior design firms, from Tish Interior Design and J. Wheeler Designs to Anna Braund and Ballard Designs, have transformed the interiors.
At the opening night party, Moonlight & Mistletoe, Atlanta Homes & Lifestyles editor in chief Elizabeth Ralls and interior designer Tish Mills Kirk paid tribute to the showhouse’s honorary chair, William H. Harrison, the highly respected principal architect of Harrison Design, designating him as the “Pope of Atlanta.”
“We’ve worked on dozens of showhouses with Bill Harrison and the talented Harrison Design team through the years, and it’s our distinct pleasure to honor him—and his distinctive imprint on Atlanta’s residential architecture—at this year’s Home for the Holidays Showhouse,” said Ralls.
Guests included Bill Sorrell, style director of Thibaut; Adam Japko, CEO of Esteem Media; Rob Jenkins of Rev-A-Shelf; Stephen Dumas of Ballard Designs; Gregory Smith of Renaissance Tile and Bath; Don DeLong of Sub-Zero, Wolf and Cove; and Frank Heery, project architectural designer at Harrison Design.
The showhouse is open to the public Thursday to Sunday through December 8.
