House Tour: A Beautiful Mix of Designer Style

Phoebe Howard


After touring the 2019 Atlanta Homes Designer Show House, I’ve had this fantasy of these designers coming to my house and each taking over a room, leaving a breathtaking finished product. Each one has his or her own distinct style but somehow, when they are taken as parts of a whole, these designers’ disparate ideas combine seamlessly into an idyllic home with undeniable flow. But don’t take our word for it. Step inside, stay awhile, peruse until your heart’s content. And then–trust us–do it all over again. You aren’t going to want to miss one gorgeous detail!

In the mean time, check out Meg and Scott Harrington’s gorgeous home!

Huff Harrington bathroom

Their 1930s Brookhaven cottage is the ultimate downsize, a gorgeous compilation of all the things the couple loved and just the right size for empty nesters. 

Huff Harrington living room

We love the homey, cottage feel of this stunning home.

While Ann and Meg’s Huff Harrington home away from home is filled with so many fabulous things, we think we love their eye for art best of all!


The work they feature is always swoon-worthy and their fine art is a real hallmark of their style and shop.


Ann, Meg and I would all love to see you at gorgeous Huff Harrington April 30! 

Thanks so much for stopping by Design Chic today. We always love it when you do!
