House Tour | Southern Style Now
We’re in Savannah, Georgia as a proud partner for Traditional Home’s Southern Style Now Showhouse, a celebration of Southern design encapsulated in a Greek Revival home restored and designed by A-list designers and influencers.
Houston-based designer Benjamin Johnson dreamed up this luxe master dressing salon inspired by the movie classic Mommie Dearest. Blending luxury and urban elements, royal purple velvets and gold plated accessories work in contrast with fluorescent neon lights and the best bar cart we’ve seen yet!
The piece de la resistance in this dreamy dressing salon is the handmade, semi-precious, backlit Concetto Puro stone topping the rouged Victorian Sociable. The glamour of the 1930’s comes to life in this stunning custom design.
For a full tour of the space, watch Traditional Home’s Facebook Live video:
Fun Fact: The home was originally divided into four apartments, but the designers for Southern Style Now converted the house into a single-family home with historical preservation in mind.
This is the parlor level kitchen (yes there are multiple kitchens!) featuring all the charm of a home with history. Rich velvets and layered textures harken to another time while modern baby blues and Ginger countertops allude to designs of today.
Our favorite element of historical interior design? The intricate details in every piece! The mirror on the wall shows us a glimpse into a perfect past!
Lisa Mende, the designer of this extensive kitchen, wasn’t afraid to mix cabinet colors from one side to the other. This muted blue complements the baby blue main install – all shades of blue are trending in our book! Fresh Concrete completes the coffee bar.
This show home is not lacking in gold-plated accents, and we love it! If it were up to us, every house would have at least a touch of gold. The story of old meets new comes alive in this powder room designed by Betsy Berry featuring antiques, modern photography, and our 2017 color White Attica in a custom sink surround.
Erring more modern than the other bathrooms, but with a nod to the historic roots of the home, designer Chad James imagines a light, moody space. Think: Edgar Allen Poe’s bathroom of today. Perhaps we’re just bewitched by the gorgeous artwork or the feather quills sitting atop the custom London Grey vanity.
We mentioned more than one kitchen…well here’s the next! This charming kitchen sits on the lower-level of the home – the quintessential cottage beauty of ye olden day with materials of today including our 2017 color White Attica.
Designer Gwyn Duggan took a new spin on cottage-style with modern hardware, unique sconces, and an eye for detail in every corner!
You still have time to tour this stunning 1854 showhouse – plan your visit before December 7th to see the home for yourself.
