House Beautiful Whole Home 2018
The House Beautiful Whole Home Project: Atlanta
For the Whole Home Project concept home, House Beautiful enlisted some of Atlanta's best - builder Michael Ladisic, architect Linda D'Orazio MacArthur, kitchen-and-bath designer Matthew Quinn, and interior designer Sherry Hart - to prove that a home can be both smart and stunning. "Our lives are so hectic and we're constantly bombarded, so we decided to go with the simplest idea of a house," architect Linda D'Orazio MacArthur told House Beautiful. "We wanted it to be familiar." Tour the smart home filled with bright ideas and shop the lighting looks selected by the Whole Home team!
Matthew Quinn's inspiration for the kitchen was healthy and smart living. He even incorporated a grow room for fresh herbs year-round! Contemporary, geometric elements are found throughout, including the Osiris Large Reflector Chandelier and Osiris Single Reflector Sconce by Thomas O'Brien. The bright palette paves the way for a cohesive, inviting space with perfect proportions.
The Limoges Large Pendant by Suzanne Kasler illuminates fresh produce and grains in the cold larder, inspiring a farm-to-table approach to every meal.
The mudroom was designed to be functional for all family members - especially the furry ones. The custom glass door features a hidden pet entrance. "I love that I could put my pup in here when she's muddy, close the half door, and know she's not behind a closed wall," Hart told House Beautiful. The Edmond Flush Mount by E.F. Chapman illuminates overhead.
The best part of this grape escape? Stock the custom chevron shelves and you'll never have to leave the house for a great bottle of wine! The Venetian Gold finish of the Brittany Small Lantern by Niermann Weeks provides a sense of ancient luxury, perfect for curating a collected atmosphere in this white-oak paneled lounge.

"It's ethereal and cloud-like when you're in there."
