For the 10th annual Home for the Holidays Designer Showhouse, Atlanta Homes & Lifestyles is partnering with Harrison Design, builder Steve McGlamery of Blackstone Custom Homes and the city’s top design talents for this beloved seasonal event.
Carole Weaks, principal of C. Weaks Interiors, was named 2018 Honorary Design Chair, and will decorate the Dining Room. Other participating designers include Lauren Davenport Imber, Lauren Lowe, Chris Socci, Kati Hardwick, Susan Brady, John Fernandez, Interior Philosophy, Kristin Kong, Gordon Dunning, Lisa Joublanc, Liz Gordon, Margaret Kirkland, Whitney Ray, Jessica Bradley, Chris Holt, Boxwoods Gardens & Gifts, Lauren DeLoach, and Montgomery Gratch Interiors.
This year’s showhouse is a new, 8,232-square-foot Buckhead estate on a 1.5-acre lot. Inspired by the site, the English country abode features a locally sourced limestone and brick exterior and open spaces filled with daylight.
The architects drew from the work of 19th-century British architect Sir Edwin Lutyens in creating the five-bedroom home, which features a sweeping roof, gables, symmetrical design and a long gallery of windows on the second floor. Two separate stair halls and 11-foot ceilings further open up the space.
In the living area, a massive 6-foot-wide fireplace—one of three in the home—befits the grand space and English vernacular. An expansive loggia with a fireplace and separate grilling terrace overlooks the pool and trees in the distance.
The event benefits Children's Healthcare of Atlanta. More details can be found at AtlantaHolidayHome.com.
