Happening in Atlanta

Lisa Palmer in the Atlanta Homes & Lifestyles Southeastern Designer Showhouse

We told y’all a few weeks ago about Lisa’s involvement in the Atlanta Homes & Lifestyles Southeastern Showhouse & Gardens. Remember seeing that here? Well, the time has come for the showhouse to actually HAPPEN!

Lisa Palmer in the Atlanta Homes & Lifestyles Southeastern Designer ShowhouseWe are SO proud of Lisa and the beautiful room she has crafted for the stunning home in which this year’s showhouse takes place. Lisa created a beautiful, inspired space that we hope all of you will get to see in person!

The showhouse starts April 20 and is open Thursdays through Sundays until May 14.

Lisa told us a little about her room and what inspired her design!

“My space is on the second level of the home. It’s a study/reading room. I loved the space when I first saw it because of the fantastic natural light that the space gets! It’s not a very big space – It’s about 17 feet by 13 feet- but I had a good amount of space to work. It’s on the second level, which houses several bedrooms, and I’m right off of a gorgeous staircase.

Our inspiration for the space was springtime! I also took inspiration from the architecture of the home which had a real traditional feel, so I couldn’t go super modern. We wallpapered the space in a gorgeous Philip Jeffries ivory raffia wallcovering that has a little sheen to it. And because it was spring, my color scheme was ivory, black, and fern green. The Pantone color of the year is this particular fern green so I went with that because it reminded me of springtime!

I have some comfortable seating in there as well as some interesting pattern. I also wanted to showcase Mississippi artists. I wanted the people of the region to see how talented the artists in our area are. So I used one of the walls as a showcase for our Mississippi artists. I love how that art wall turned out!

The room overall has sort of my signature look with high contrast. My drapery is an ivory linen when a beautiful quarter inch glazed black linen flange all the way around. We did this beautiful ivory armless Hickory Chair sofa in an ivory linen velvet, and I did a really cool armless chair in a Zak and Fox pattern of deep charcoal and ivory with a very gardeny pattern. Then there’s this fern green chair by Lee Industries with this really cool braid that brings in the black and ivory around the bottom.

All of this is sitting on top of this sisal and wool greek key rug by Patterson Flynn Martin. And to top it all off, I’ve got this really killer, semi modern yet earthy light fixture in a bronze and gold that came from the showroom of Paul Plus at ADAC.

So this room is bright, it’s fun, it has a little traditional spin and a little modern spin, and it’s very springy.

This showhouse is really something to see. People need to come over and tour it! Mississippi is represented in this house, so we are really excited to be a part of it.”
