TLV Visits the Flower Magazine Designer Showhouse

Recently, The Local Vault had the great pleasure of visiting Flower Magazine’s first ever designer showhouse which was brimming with gorgeous and inspiring designs. It is no surprise that the showhouse, a nod to classic Regency style located in the historic area of Buckhead in Atlanta, is a stunner. As the nation’s only floral lifestyle publication, Flower Magazine is something of an authority on elegant homes and gardens, and as such, their first foray into designer showhouses reflects their expertise.

Inside the home, designed by award-winning Atlanta based architect Peter Block & Associates and built by luxury home builder Young & Meathe, twenty one celebrated designers contributed to showcase their unique perspective on interior design today. Outside the home, renowned Atlanta based landscape architect John Howard worked his magic on the grounds.

Margot Shaw, the founder and Editor-in-Chief of Flower Magazine is known for bringing the publication’s vision to life as the go-to source for ideas on decorating, travel and of course, gardening. She notes that the event “embodies impeccable design across every spectrum” and that “with the quality of the talent involved, it promises to be a masterpiece for the ages.”

Naturally, flowers play a powerful role in the design process as Shaw carefully paired each designer with an equally talented florist to collaborate on arrangements for each room.

The terrace-level family room , designed by Atlanta native Ray Booth, finds a serene sense of balance though the use of neutral  hues and soft blues seen in the elegant wall coverings and eye catching upholstered seatsing.

Marked by soft pink walls featuring a black, gold and white crane motif the dressing room, primary bath and adjoining East gallery designer by Julie Dodson is deeply glamorous. Other areas boast a differently scaled and yet equally graphic wallpaper which offsets nicely with the classic decor and soft lighting. Flower arrangements pick up the blush tones in the carefully selected accessories including lamp shades and upholstery.

The three-story stairwell and adjoining landings are transformed beautifully by designer Jared Hughes who made maximum use of the ample wall space to showcase as much art as possible. The resulting spaces absolutely hum with the brilliant artwork and furnishings he selected. Regal busts, delicate blue glazed lamps and floral upholstery blend effortlessly with gilded frames and mirrors in this area of the home that is a feast for the senses.
