Atlanta-based designer Patricia McLean is a true traditionalist through and through. Born in Atlanta, she spent her childhood in High Point, North Carolina, where her mother would take her to the legendary Otto Zenke decorating studio. She grew up surrounded by antiques and traveling to Europe to see the great homes and cathedrals, all of which influenced her love of classic design. Patricia does not like to follow trends, but instead seeks to create a look that is collected and timeless.
I first learned of Patricia’s work while reading the March/April 2016 issue of Victoria magazine. A Georgian-style residence in Brookhaven, Georgia she had designed was featured, and I fell in love. Patricia began working with the homeowners (their third project together!) long before the foundation was poured to create a home with an air of tradition and ageless grace that will last for generations. Let’s take a tour of this exquisite home along with a few more of my favorites from Patricia’s portfolio…
The bedroom she designed for the St. Regis Atlanta Traditional Model Home is an absolute dream…
And last but not least, how beautiful is this Buckhead living room?
Everything Patricia does is absolute perfection… these are interiors designed to last a lifetime. To learn more about her work, please visit her website, Patricia McLean Interiors, Inc. And there is a fabulous Q&A you will want to read here. I am looking forward to seeing her room at the 2016 Cashiers Designer Showhouse, August 13-28. Patricia was named Honorary Regional Designer, and she is designing the living room with an English Justin Van Breda print. She is also Honorary Interior Designer Chair for the 2017 Cathedral Antiques Show. Such talent!
Wow, great find! She is wonderful. She's got elegant, yet comfy down to an art. Her use of colour is perfect. Thanks for sharing.
What a talented designer. Thank you for the fabulous post.
Yes gorgeous……traditional elegant interiors live on!
The green and blue doors are absolute genius.
SO beautiful!!! Hope you are having a lovely week, Andrea! xoxo
Spent many happy and observing times with my mom at Otto Zenke’s in Greensboro. Miss those outings. Loved the big house with the porch. Also Miss Freeman was a personality to remember .
