A Home in Harmony

Patricia McLean Interior

Shutters in a just-right shade of blue-green punctuate the brick facade of a grand suburban manor, where each thoughtful detail reflects the esprit de corps among the owners and the design team.

The unique symbiosis between a decorator and a client is a crucial component in the design process—one that spells the difference between a house and a home. An ideal brick-and-mortar illustration of a successful collaboration can be seen in a beautiful Georgian-style residence in Brookhaven, Georgia.

Walls with just a whisper of lavender offer the perfect backdrop for the master bedroom’s Sheraton-style furniture.
