Living Room Mantel

Two wool-upholstered settees by Christian Liaigre face off before the living room fireplace. Chinese funeral figures are protected in a Plexiglas case on the mantel. The 48-inch-diameter brass charger hanging above the fireplace is by artist Martha Sturdy.

Dining Room

The homeowners have collected many Chinese tapestries and textiles, including 14th-century Tibetan robes worn over armor. They had the robes mounted in museum-quality displays, which hang on either side of the fireplace. Lamps designed by Robert Kuo sit on matching Maxalto commodes with bronze hardware. The wenge wood dining room table is by B&B Italia, and the large rectangular pendant light fixture is from Restoration Hardware.

Hallway Display

The home’s modern style harmonizes with the large collection of Asian antiques, like this sculpture displayed in a hallway niche.

Breakfast Room

Perennials indoor-outdoor fabric on chairs is stain- and spill-resistant, making it well suited to family meals. Covered in fabric from Cassaro, the settee adds a pop of color. Musso designed the glass-top table, finishing the pale ash wood base with a gray glaze.

Kitchen

“Winter Cloud” marble by Walker Zanger creates a stunning backdrop for the range and hood. Island light fixtures are from Circa.

Designer

Showhouse Exterior

The symmetrical brick house with modest ornamentation is a blend of Georgian and Regency styles, says architect William Harrison, who designed the 2008 Christmas House in Atlanta. Harrison’s firm, which is based in Atlanta and has offices in California, New York, Washington, D.C., and China, has participated in more than 30 showhouses across the United States. “It’s always important that we make the house contextual with the community,” Harrison says. “It’s very much like having a custom client, maybe less emotional, but we still need to design a house that is sellable. In Atlanta, that usually means traditional.”

Bedroom

The beds and linens are from Duxiana, a Sweden-based company that uses steel springs, natural latex from rubber trees, and cotton fibers. The handmade lamp is from Porta Romana, and the chair is covered in a berry-hued Schumacher fabric.

Bedroom Sitting Area

Ivory carpet and “Grizzly Bear Brown” wall paint from Benjamin Moore allow the room’s brighter accents to stand out.
