As you know, I am in Atlanta fairly frequently since it is the nearest design hub for me. I do at least a couple of buying trips a year, as well as the yearly design show at the Atlanta Decorative Arts Center. And when I can, I like to tour the Decorator's Showhouse in Atlanta. Regional showhouses feature many of the same area designers almost every year, so we all usually have one or two favorites that we look forward to each year. Joy McLean is one of the designers that I always look forward to. Her style is very classic and clean.
Her use of antiques and beautiful reproductions is something that draws me to her work.
I like the way she keeps her signature look evident here in this sunroom. It still has that edited, traditional feel, but comfortable and casual as well.
A beautiful vignette in an entryway. The mirror reflects a clean-lined window treatment and gorgeous crystal chandelier.
This looks like a keeping room. Elements I love here are the lantern, comfy chairs, and the curved banquette.
Joy McLean uses beautiful blues a lot in her work. Very serene.
Here again she anchors the room with classic furniture and adds tailored window treatments in pretty fabrics.
A warm and inviting library.
Another soft and pretty bedroom.
I hope you have enjoyed this quick little tour of some of Joy's work. Her rooms are even prettier in person. Classic furniture and soft, livable colors always endure.
