Sneak Peak of the Seattle Showhouse
Next week we’ll be unveiling some seriously gorgeous images of our Seattle Showhouse. As you may have read, we’ve partnered with ATGStores.com and Porch to transform a home in the Queen Anne’s neighborhood of Seattle into an unbelievable show-stopping, design showhouse! You'll be able to see the beautiful rooms, shop the products and learn more about how the online interior design process works. Of course, you might be wondering, “will it work?” The answer is, YES!
Now with less 10 days to go, we are going to give you a sneak peek to see what's happening behind the scene first-hand and how this whole design process unfolds.
First Stop: The Online Interior Design Process
In an exciting display of technology and creativity our design team came together to create a gorgeous house that can be achieved in any city or small town. All the rooms designed in the Seattle Showhouse we’re done 100% VIRTUALLY! That’s right! None of the designers had ever stepped foot in the house before or during the design process. Each designer was provided with room measurements and photos of the space that they were to decorate. After getting feedback from the homeowner, our team of designers set out to create beautiful, thoughtful rooms all sourced online using ATG furniture and accessories. To add a unique flare to their rooms, some of the designers sourced artwork and wallpaper from local Seattle artisans — also sourced online. For each room in the house, design boards were created and a detailed shopping list was also provided. All of the products are being shipped directly to the house for easy, seamless installation. Porch professionals are being brought in to do the handy work and complete the preparation process.
Second Stop: Our Talented Team of Designers
Decorist Celebrity Designer Brian Paquette
Living Room/Dining Room — A study in neutrals and shape was the inspiration behind our design for the open living room and dining space. As a dual-function space this room already commands a lot of attention so making it subtle yet memorable was our goal.
Brian Paquette selected the following products for his design:
Decorist Celebrity Designer Massucco Warner Miller
Family Room — The family room is intended as a cozy space to watch TV, read and relax with friends and family. Cozy doesn’t have to mean compromising on style, though, so we’re excited to present the perfect combination of both.
Check out some of Massucco Warner Miller's product selections for the family room:
Decorist Elite Designer Pulp Design Studios
Office — our goal for this space was to create an eclectic and lived-in feel for our homeowners. The results is a functional home office that exudes fearless style. Offices have such strong functional needs that it’s easy to overlook the style element. But not this office! Wait and see.
We're loving Pulp Design Studio's furniture picks:
Decorist Elite Designer Lindhesse Design
Foyer — The foyer is the gateway to the home and the first indication of what’s to come. I wanted to create a space that would set an inviting and warm tone for the rest of the house.
Lindhesse Design makes a statement with their entrance design.
Decorist Head of Design Ashley Redmond
Kitchen — The kitchen has a modern yet warm feel and compliments the other designs throughout the house. Given that it is the hub of the home, I tried to ensure that the kitchen was sleek yet comfortable and a place where you'd like to gather.
Ashley Remond pulls some amazing finds for the kitchen from ATG:
Decorist Classic Designer Melissa Schenck
Boy’s Bedroom — My goal with the space was to create a room that a 15 year old boy would be comfortable in but that also was full of character and appeal for all ages. The result is a room that is masculine, youthful and blends in well with the rest of the rooms in the house.

Decorist Classic Designer Katja O’Brien
Girl’s Bedroom — For a tween girl who will soon be a teenager, my objective was to create a stylish, timeless room to dream and grow in. The room is inviting, playful but yet has a sense of sophistication.
What girl wouldn't love these products in her room?
Honorary Chairperson, ATG spokesperson Alexa Hampton
Master Bedroom — Because of the modern nature of the house, I gravitated toward clean lines, a palpable sense of comfort, and a neutral palette with pops of red that keep the eye entertained. The room is both relaxing and energizing, covering both needs of a master bedroom.
