5 design trends from the FLOWER Magazine Atlanta Showhouse – 71Bait

After months of preparation, 21 of the most notable designers in the interior design industry came together to create spaces in FLOWER Magazine Atlanta Showhouse in the prestigious Buckhead neighborhood. The results were unveiled on November 4th – and they are nothing short of spectacular.

The 10,000-square-foot Regency-style home was designed by noted Atlanta architect Peter Block & Associates and built by luxury home builders Young & Meathe on over six acres of land. Additionally, the home is dressed in an abundance of beautiful flowers, as each of the 21 designers have worked with an equally talented florist to create arrangements that complement the look of the space they have designed.

Upon arrival, guests are greeted by a classic portico with Ionic columns. Inside, a three-story floating stairwell with custom bronze handrails sets the stage for an unforgettable experience. The interior of the home features a ‘long room’, a formal dining room with a marble fireplace, a paneled library, a separate catering kitchen, a multi-purpose ‘cutting room’ with a flower pot porch, and a master suite with separate ‘dressing rooms’ for her and hers Him.

On the second floor there are four more bedrooms, each with their own bathroom, and a study with a study. The terrace level includes a large family room, a secret pub with adjoining wine cellar, a guest suite with ensuite bathroom and private outdoor patio, and a fully equipped spa/gym. The exterior of the property features lush English gardens and a European style pool with alfresco tablescapes and exquisite floral arrangements.

Would you like to incorporate a touch of this fabulousness into your own home? Below are a few trends we love, inspired by the eye-catching spaces set to debut in 2022 FLOWER Atlanta Showhouse magazine.

pink everything!

In 2022, pink is the focus of floral design colors and furnishing trends. The romantic and feminine hue brings softness to a room and can substitute for a neutral hue like beige or white. From statement walls to furniture pieces and fabric accents, pink works beautifully to bring warmth and a sense of sophistication to your home all year round. Take a look at Tammy Connor’s bathroom, which combines pale pink walls with gold accents. Smaller rooms, such as Bathrooms, for example, are a great place to start when taking a design risk.

In Mallory Mathison Glenn’s pink lounge and study, fun floral patterns, eye-catching art and complementary shades of blue create a cheerful effect. Showroom guests will surely dream of curling up with a cup of coffee and a good book!

Scenic murals

Home murals are the biggest trend in wallpaper design this year. Picturesque landscapes, intricate floral or botanical motifs, and other detailed designs add visual interest and whimsy to walls. Rather than repeating a pattern or print like wallpaper, murals depict a specific scene, such as B. a lively garden or a beautiful landscape – as shown in Mallory Mathison Glenn’s Gilded Garden room. Featuring exotic birds and butterflies perched on flowering branches against a gold background, the beautiful garden scene combines elegance and escapism.

In the bedroom designed by Lisa Mende, her striking use of pattern, print and color does not go unnoticed. Bold yet rooted in tradition, the space has been affectionately dubbed ‘Aunt Betty’s Garden’. Take a nod from the pros and add a fabulous mural to your own home.

Safari-inspired prints

After many years of minimalism and white walls, people are starting to turn to maximalist patterns and colors for their homes. As this trend gains traction, bold statements like safari-inspired prints are on the rise.

In Alexa Hampton’s dining room, Gracie Studio’s hand-painted tiger wallpaper adds a sense of adventure and glamor. Even downstairs in Tish Mills’ Jungle Safari bedroom, the overall feel is surprisingly chic. Don’t be afraid to make this attention-grabbing move in your own home!

Traditional details

By mixing patterns and incorporating antique pieces, traditional details have made a comeback. Rooms throughout the showhouse feature classic art, antiques and pieces of historical significance. Barry Dixon’s library focuses on classic elements and oriental treasures from the designer’s recent trip to Beijing. Included in Jared Hughes Landing are various fabrics and pieces from the Ottoman Empire, Egyptian and Chinese cultures and antiques.

Visually rich tablescapes

As with maximalist interior design, visually rich tablescapes are debuting throughout homes. Maintaining a cohesive theme, the table designs feature an abundance of flowers, linens, plates, glasses and more. Full of colour, height and texture, lush tablescapes offer a way to showcase aspects of your personality and beloved family heirlooms and collectibles.

Caanan Marshall’s floral patterns combined with Elaine Griffin’s table design speak to this “more is more” trend. Stunning arrangements are adorned with lush layers of color and texture, including native citrus, tropical blooms and even corn on the cob. The rich green tones of the Bordallo Pinheiro glassware, cutlery and cabbage plates complete the look.
