TLV Southeastern Designer Showhouse and Gardens Series: Elegance in Atlanta – Part 3

Welcome back to our coverage of the 7th annual Atlanta Homes & Lifestyles Southeastern Designer Showhouse and Gardens running from April 14 – May 8. So far we have been blown away by the wide range of talent on display in this stunning showhouse. We hope our readers have enjoyed following along for our first two segments which can be found here and here.


In case you are just getting caught up, this beautiful home was built and decorated by a mix of notable Southeastern designers and architects “tasked with infusing each corner of the home with their signature style.” Not only does this event showcase the work of some seriously inspirational designers, but it also serves as an important fundraiser benefitting Camp Twin Lakes – “a nonprofit organization that delivers fully adaptive, medically supportive and deeply impactful camp experiences to Georgia’s children and young adults.” In our last installment we toured the second floor of the showhouse, sharing the work of some truly extraordinary designers. In this segment we continue to go upstairs to check out the work of the final set of fabulous designers in this stunning 5 bedroom, 9,300 square foot home.


Cate Dunning & Lathem Gordon – Evening HideawayMoss green, vibrant sunny yellow and soft peach come together for a lively and yet elegant combination. The beautifully bespoke work of designers Cate Dunning & Lathem Gordon graces this elegant evening hideaway with a blend of modern and vintage pieces resulting in a unique and lovely space.


Stephanie Jarvis – Bedroom & Bath 4Coming to her work with a “strong sense of heritage,” designer Stephanie Jarvis (who learned design under the guidance of Bunny Williams) creates an elegant bedroom draped in classic blue and white textiles. This ideal place to relax and unwind is a feast for the eyes.

Whitney Durham – Bedroom & Bath 3Original art and vintage finds are two of designer Whiteny Durham’s signature elements, both of which appear to be on display in this modern mix of bold prints and classic pieces. Subtle texture blends with unique color choices for a  special room worth exploring.


Kim Regas – Junior Primary SuiteRefined with a touch of glam, this junior primary suite designed by Kim Regas is filled with elegant details and unique finishes. Richly hued and yet not over saturated, she adds the perfect amount of color and pattern in this delicately layered space.

Michele Johnson – Third Floor LoftCurated and collected, the third floor loft by designer Michele Johnson is a room filled with unique finds that invite visitors to linger and discover. Comfortable and yet elegant seating is topped with playful animal print pillows while a well stocked bar cart has stories to tell with its mix of special glassware and vintage decor.

Elizabeth McKay – Game Room & BarAs a second generation owner of heritage game company Venture Games (a brand that dates back to the 1920s), Elizabeth McKay is bringing the longstanding brand into the future with a new perspective. With her partner/ husband, the pair plan to “shift from making game tables to creating pieces that will become part of the design of the space, not just sit in it.” This pool table in petal pink is perfectly at home in this chic game room and bar.

Mary Catherine Murray & Amanda Khouri – Lower Covered DeckEast meets west in this gorgeous gold and sand hued outdoor space. Bold prints and subtle touches of color make this space draped in stunning textiles a richly detailed and unique space. Design team Mary Catherine Murray & Amanda Khouri bring their love of blending eras, styles and colors to this special addition to the showhouse.
