    For the past 45 years, Georgia’s top interior designers have annually transformed an Atlanta-area estate into a breathtaking home that becomes the Atlanta Symphony Showhouse. The decorators tackle different rooms, bringing a burst of innovative ideas and providing inspiration to those who tour the spaces. The Atlanta Symphony Associates sponsors the springtime event, with all proceeds benefiting the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra. That’s one of the reasons Traditional Home is proud to serve as a national media sponsor. Take a peek at some standout Atlanta Symphony rooms, and get inspired to visit the 2015 showhouse this April.

    Grand Salon by Barbara Westbrook

    When Barbara Westbrook saw the hand-painted linen wallcovering that dated to the 1930s, she knew she wanted to design the grand salon. “A luxurious palette was already in place, and the scenic wallcovering made the cavernous space intimate,” she says. An onyx bowl atop the bronze-and-glass coffee table adds a modern touch. Potted maple trees flanking the antique china cabinet warm the room.

    Living Room by Patricia McLean

    Soaring proportions including tall paneled windows make it easy to see why decorating this living room would be daunting, even to a professional designer. “I had to do everything I could to bring the room down to human scale,” Patricia McLean says. Soft blue stripes in gathered silk draperies bring the pale-gray walls to life. High-back chairs imported from France and a herringbone-patterned sofa surround a marble-topped coffee table, creating a more intimate conversation area.

    Family Room by Timothy Corrigan

    Using fabrics and furniture from his collection for Schumacher, Timothy Corrigan turned a cozy family room into a vision of blue and white. “Because it’s located just off the swimming pool, I wanted to create a sea of blue to integrate the outdoors inside,” he says. To highlight the unique shape of the French doors, Corrigan designed drapery valances running wall-to-wall that mimic their form. Not one to skimp on details, he customized the sofa and light fixture shades with coordinating trims. Above, the gold-leaf ceiling casts a glamorous glow.

    Study by Stan Topol

    Designer Stan Topol proves comfort can be beautiful in this well-appointed study. A horse painting joins antique artwork to adorn the wall above the white banquette, while a pair of swivel chairs serve as extra seating. Stacked books provide hours of entertainment. The swing-arm floor lamp is from Circa Lighting.

    Solarium by Robert Brown

    “The gray plaster walls and dusty-pink accents feel distinctly French,” says designer Robert Brown of the well-appointed solarium. Tailored menswear inspired the refined lines in the comfortable upholstered furniture. Orchids and a planter filled with live moss echo the garden view beyond the French doors. A grand chandelier provides a note of drama to the quiet palette.

    Kitchen by Matthew Quinn, Design Galleria

    Quartzite slabs with gentle waves of blue and iron-toned veining inspired the palette and hands-on qualities of the kitchen. “We fell in love with this quartzite,” says Matthew Quinn, whose Atlanta design firm renovated the 442-square-foot space. “Quartzite has this beautiful veining and movement that resembles marble, but it is much more durable than marble—and actually is more durable than granite,” he says.

    The veining in the stone inspired the muted cabinet colors. Perimeter cabinets were painted blue-gray; the island, which was built with rift-cut oak, was finished with a matching blue stain.

    Circa’s “Darlana” lantern is suspended from a metal bracket over the Rohl sink and faucet. Countertops are Cielo quartzite in a leathered finish.

    Brass trim and cabinet hardware are not lacquered, so they will develop a patina over time. “I love being able to see where hands have touched door handles and hardware over the years,” Quinn says.

    The pantry door and the front of the refrigerator/freezer (left of the pantry) are integrated into the cabinets, creating the effect of an elegant paneled wall.

    Breakfast Room by Maria McLaurin

    In the adjoining breakfast room, interior designer Maria McLaurin combined weathered antiques with nature-inspired upholstery and drapery fabrics designed by her nephew, Clay McLaurin. “Clay often begins his fabrics with watercolor drawings, which evolve into pattern designs,” McLaurin says. His painting above the settee, titled “Weeping Willow,” inspired the fabric used for draperies in the breakfast room and for Roman shades in the kitchen.

    The golden hues in the fabrics complement the brass finishes in the kitchen and serve to unify the spaces, Quinn notes, adding, “Overall, it’s a nice composition and combination of textures and colors.”

    Morning Room by John Oetgen

    John Oetgen mixes old-world style with just the right amount of whimsy in his colorful morning room. “The title of the room was ‘Mornings are for the Birds,’ which I totally agree with,” he says. Nine different fabrics—note the leopard pillow and cobalt cushion—mingle to make the antique daybed sing. Keeping to theme, faux fowl embellish the convex mirrors. The breakfast table with a baluster base and a magnificent Murano glass chandelier complete the lavish look.

    “Harkening back to the home’s Venetian style, I selected a coordinating antique mirror, coastal artwork, and a watery-blue ikat for the wallcovering,” says designer James Farmer of the preppy powder room.

    Upper Hallway by Michel Smith Boyd

    Anchored by rugs in a chain-link design and Circa Lighting’s gilded light fixture, the upper hallway designed by Michel Smith Boyd exudes luxury. “I thought it should feel like the inside of a jewel box, complete with a velvet-upholstered chair, a custom ottoman, and sparkle overhead,” he says. A silk floral wallcovering highlights the room’s arched panels. Transitional artwork adds charm to the classic architecture.

    Teenage Bedroom by Tish Mills

    Tish Mills looked to her 16-year-old daughter for inspiration when she embarked on the bedroom’s design. “I wanted to create a feminine space a young lady could grow with,” she says. Mills drew on the draperies’ paisley fabric for her palette of lavender, cream, and soft blues. A painting suspended above the bed blends with linens, the headboard, and flanking nightstands from Ballard Designs. The antique Chinese chest at the foot of the bed is the designer’s favorite piece.

    Master Bath by Matthew Quinn and Clay Snider

    Marriage is all about togetherness and sharing—until it comes to the bathroom. “A majority of our clients want separate his and her bathrooms,” says Atlanta kitchen and bath designer Matthew Quinn. So when Quinn and interior designer Clay Snider renovated a master bath suite at the Atlanta Symphony Showhouse, they did the next best thing—they created separate but equally luxurious spaces in one 17x20-foot room. On either side of a centerpiece tub and glass-walled shower, the designers carved out individual spaces, each with a sink vanity, grooming and sitting spot, and enclosed water closet.

    The layout allows for people to relax alone or interact with a spouse, Quinn says. “It’s the best of both worlds.”

    Master Bath by Matthew Quinn and Clay Snider

    Taking cues from the veining in the marble floor tiles, Snider painted walls and also upholstered chairs in shades of gray. Additional color comes from pink-toned marble columns on either side of the tub and decorative tile panels in the shower.

    Guest Dressing Room by Bryan Alan Kirkland

    From the draperies to the artwork, Bryan Alan Kirkland’s dressing room design is awash in fuchsia and floral. “I envisioned a Hollywood starlet and her gaggle of wannabe girlfriends getting ready here,” he says. The opulent, sun-filled space features a mirrored desk and stylish slipper chair atop a textured area rug. The hand-carved, white-lacquered mirror frame guarantees a ravishing reflection.
