Designer Show House in Atlanta, GA

The Designer Show House is open to the public until May 14, 2017.  Designer Show HouseIt is located at


It’s worth the trip.  My sister, Jan, had come from Pennsylvania, for a short visit and one of our stops was this Designer Show House.  We stayed about 1 1/2 hours, then headed off to Buckhead for an outdoor lunch all complete with Mint Julips!

Jan is a designer consultant for a builder.  So, her career is keeping up with the latest and greatest trends in housing. She loves to come to Atlanta every year to enjoy our culture, tour of homes, and everything Atlanta has to offer “inside the perimeter”.

There is free parking and the bus will pick you up where you park and drive you to the driveway.  You buy your tickets inside the garage.  Then yoDesigner Show Home Garageu proceed to the front door.  Above the garage is the Guest House and is absolutely gorgeous. You get to see that last.

Each of the rooms are completed by different designers.  It’s my understanding that after the show house is done (May 14th), the owners can either buy what’s there or the designers will remove everything from their room.  The owners chose the kitchen designer, so everything in the kitchen will remain as you see it, but that is not necessarily the case with the other rooms.

The master retreat was my favorite as was the kitchen.  The blue-greens and tan-creams, used in the master retreat, is luxurious and soothing.  The fabrics along with the furniture was exquisite.  The master bathroom wDesigner Show House Master Bedroomas so inviting. The shiplap (Thanks, Chip and JoAnna Gaines) on the ceiling in the sitting area was impressive.

Again, this was definitely worth the money and the trip.  When we exited, they had a table full of brochures, business cards, and what I loved the most, was a printout of all the paint colors they used throughout the house!   This ceiling is Sherwin Williams; Rainwashed 6211.  They also used Sherwin Williams 2017 paint color, Alabaster, frequently throughout the home.  If you want me to send you a copy of the printout of all the paint colors, please Email Me and I’ll send you a copy!
