My great friend Sara Bernhardt relocated to Atlanta recently and every now and then will taunt me with amazing design showhouses that she visits on a causal weekend with her equally chic mother. The great thing about friends, is that they know “sharing is caring.” This past weekend she visited (twice) the Southeastern Showhouse put on by Atlanta House & Lifestyles Magazine. Sara knows I would have been there in a second to see some of my favorite designers in the industry create spaces that are over the top, without being overdone. This year was truly remarkable with talent and taste.
Thanks to Sara, I got to be there in spirit. Thanks to The Potted Boxwood, so do you. Happy Tuesday!

Believe it or not…this is the pool house. If this is how Tristan Harstan & Co. does a pool house, I could only imagine how well they execute an actual home. Perfection.
The ladies lounge by Amy Morris. An incredible talent that I am sure we will hear more about again and again!
I am obsessed with this wallpaper in the guest bath of Melanie Milner. Well done!
Look at that ceiling!!
Beautiful dining room with classic and sophisticated hues by Suzanne Kassler.
What an amazing alfresco dining room by Beth Webb. Such a sensible and charming style as seen by the transparent greens against the whites and patterns.
Look at that long pillow pattern…..ahhh!! Love it!
Guest Bedroom by my favorites (I do not take that term lightly) Parker Kennedy Living. Their designs will always have color, vibrancy, trellis, bamboo, and and a bug punch of personality!
Another viewing. Is that white piece for purchase?!?!?!?!?!?!? Please- more buffet than dresser, but I will take it (imagine that against some blue and white gracie?). I die.
Gramercy Interiors designed this magnificent powder room. In fact, forget the rest of the house. I could live in this space alone.
The master bedroom by the always talented Phoebe Howard. The light was much softer than this photo.
Another shot of the master.
Men’s closet by Michael Boyd. Throw in a few Barbour jackets and you have every man’s dream. Every preppy, hunting-loving, southern New Englander’s dream
Gordon Dunning masters the pool side loggia. Who doesn’t love shades of blue and white!?
Up close. This area can’t help but make you feel happy and smile. That is a good sign for design!
An amazing poolside area by Gordon Dunning. I couldn’t love this area any more! The umbrellas and the blue chinoiserie garden stools are beyond refreshing.
