It’s often said this is “the most wonderful time of the year”! In Atlanta the beauty of the season can be found at the annual Home for the Holidays Designer Showhouse hosted by Atlanta Homes & Lifestyles. We love the beauty found in the past and present and this showhouse is the perfect example as a Federal-style renovated home. “We feel that the character and soul of this house are going to be felt by each of our guests, and result in a magical, and more intimate holiday experience,” said Editor-in-Chief, Elizabeth Ralls. Southern design has drawn significant attention lately, it was a pleasure to see these designers put their stamp on a restored home, bringing the present into the past.
This winter season brought many beautiful designs and as we toured the home two rooms resonated with us; the living room designed by Atlanta mother-and-daughter team Cheryl Womack and Alison Womack Jowers of Womack Jowers Interiors and the family room designed by Carol Weaks of C. Weaks Interiors. The Womack women also served as Honorary Chairs for the showhouse. The annual event benefits Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta. Discover our two favorite designs and if you love the designs as much as we do, how you can shop them on rubylux.com. If you are near Atlanta there is still have time to visit the showhouse, which ends Sunday, December 11th.
What initially struck us about this room is how the unique color choice of gold, grey, taupe, and blue were seamlessly combined to create a space that feels serene, refined, and fun. Standout pieces for us are the art deco sconce, the use of four accent tables in place of a coffee table, and the unique honeycomb molding on the ceiling. The Womack design inspired us to create this LUXList, shown below. To create a space using this room as inspiration we would begin with the following pieces. Womack Living Room LUXList: Four-Tier Otto Luce Chandelier, Jean Royere nesting tables, Italian High Back Chairs, Art Deco Style light sconce.
This design by Carol Weaks of C. Weaks Interiors has us ready to sit by the fireside. She has summoned the warmth of the holidays with her use of natural elements and a bold color palette of orange and red. The design is set off by small details from the fireplace backsplash to the unique art over the mantel. Weaks inspired us to create a LUXList encompassing the artistic and natural aesthetic at the heart of her design. This design would absolutely keep us warm in the winter months.
