If you haven’t visited the Southeastern Showhouse yet, make plans to do so right now! Your senses will be delighted with design, inside and out. I had the privilege to tour the Southeastern Showhouse, thanks to Atlanta Homes & Lifestyles, and will share some highlights. There is so much to take in, you need to take the time and visit for yourself, relish in these design details.
Built by Southern Gentry Homes, this 6 bedroom, 7 bath, 12,000 square foot home flows effortlessly on this scenic property.
The kitchen and keeping area took my breath away. Yvonne McFadden is a master of natural materials, yet balances the mood with a sophisticated tone. Definitely a fan of the open shelving design!
Then you move outside to this cool, sexy space by Tish Mills Kirk –
The design community gives us such richly layered rooms, so many details to absorb and enjoy. As a designer, it’s a privilege and responsibility to bring out the best of a space and experiment a bit, like Steve did in the Macon Showhouse in 2017.
Here are some glimpses into the masterful bedrooms, beginning with the master bedroom designed by Huff-Dewberry.
Now we’ll move upstairs for sunsets, canopies, and more…
There’s no better way to ignite your creative spirit than by visiting special hubs of design, like this one. Where does your eye go first? What does your eye linger upon? Whether you incorporate these details now or later, remember how they make you feel.
Last week, we shared part one of Jill’s Southeastern Designer Showhouse & Gardens tour highlights, and today, we’re excited to share a bit about the remaining spaces – the bedrooms and leisure spaces.
Phoebe Howard’s master bedroom suite was sumptuously styled and a fantastic take on classic design. We’re ready to move right in!
One of our favorite design elements in the showhouse was the gilt ceiling in Amy Morris‘ lady’s lounge space. That light fixture hanging from that stunning ceiling was a showstopper.
The feminine touches throughout the dressing room, designed by Alison Womack Jowers and Cheryl Womack, were so well thought out.
The soft lines and mix of textures in the dressing room were such a lovely fit for the space!
And Jonathan Savage‘s bedroom and bath were the epitome of “guy glam!” His masculine theme played well with luxurious touches any man would enjoy coming home to.
The next bedroom we toured took us to an exotic locale. Andrew Brown‘s space really is a true escape and made us want to stay and enjoy the space for a while.
Next up – a diversion to the game room. Our friend Ginger Brewton created a space filled with personality and we were thrilled to help accessorize the room!
From one cheery space to another, the bathroom and bath by Parker Kennedy Living is abundant with chic, chinoiserie style!
The last space we visited was by Mark Williams Design Associates and it was all about texture, texture and more texture! It drew us in and welcomed us home.
It was a perfect ending to a fabulous home tour!
If our tour highlights piqued your interest, plan a visit to the Southeastern Showhouse & Gardens. We promise – you will not be disappointed!
And don’t forget… be sure to stop by the steve mckenzie’s showroom for discounted tickets. Enjoy and happy touring!!

This past Saturday kicked off the first open house for the Atlanta Homes & Lifestyles Southeastern Designer Showhouse & Gardens. And it’s amazing! Jill was fortunate enough to tour the house – all 20,000 square feet of it – a day early and shares a bit about her experience here with us today…
This fabulous house, designed by architect Dietrich T. Logan of Logan Design Group International and built by Bill Preston, president of Atlanta-based Paradise Builders Inc., is an amazing addition to the Buckhead area.
The lovely and hugely talented Suzanne Kasler served as Honorary Chair of the interior design team behind the Southeastern Showhouse. The other designers who worked to make this home such a stunner are listed at the end of this post and can also be seen here.
Suzanne’s dining room in the showhouse features fabulously lacquered walls and ceiling – a fantastic treatment for a formal space!
Next up is the study. Robert Brown is the creative mind behind this fantastic space.
You know we love a good library, and this one doesn’t disappoint. The combination of neutral colors textures, and that dramatic artwork created a memorable space.
Barbara Westbrook‘s showhouse great room was equally as memorable due in large to her artwork selections. The scale was spot on for this generous room.
The black and white color scheme in the great room felt fresh and new and was pleasantly unexpected!
Our friend Lauren DeLoach‘s showhouse kitchen design became a fast favorite. And her attention to detail – as evidenced in the next two images – is spot on.
Fine art in the kitchen… Yes, please! It was a space that was difficult to move on from.
But move on we must. And Kay Douglass‘ morning room design made it a bit easier, as it spoke to us on so many levels.
Not the least of which was her use of this beautifully “crusty” mid-century chair and her sleek green upholstery.
Those umbrellas – perfection in our books!
And that’s where we’ll have to retire part one of the showhouse tour. We’re saving the bedroom and leisure spaces for part two of our post, in which we’ll highlight even more fabulous designer spaces. Please keep an eye out!
Another important item to note about the Southeastern Designers Showhouse & Gardens is that a portion of the ticket sale proceeds will benefit Safe Kids Georgia, the safety initiative of Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta (CHOA).
We urge you to plan a visit to this spectacular showhome. And to sweeten the pot just a bit, we have tickets for sale at the steve mckenzie’s showroom for just $25/ticket, which will save you $5 off the at-the-door price of $30.
