A Look Inside the Julian Price Showhouse

A tudor revival mansion in Greensboro, North Carolina, provided the setting for Southern Home’s first showhouse. Designers from all over the south employed their talents to transform the neglected relic into a dazzling home for a modern family.

Breakfast Room

It was love at first sight when Kim Hoegger walked into the breakfast room. “I felt instantly connected to the space, as if I had been there before,” she says. “Perhaps it was the charming butler’s pantry cabinets and the stainless steel countertop and sink that reminded me of my grandmother’s kitchen in her white colonial house. It felt like home.” Hoegger chose a fabric from her textile collection that reflects the old-meets-new attitude of the room. “It’s a little retro but so fresh and modern too,” she says. Brass accents add a dose of midcentury modern, as seen in the cabinet hardware and chandelier. A fresh coat of “Cape Blue” by Benjamin Moore brought the cabinets into the new millennium. “The room is the perfect place for a young family to have a casual breakfast, get messy with arts and crafts on the galvanized tabletop, or study at the handy built-in desk,” she says. “It’s vintage-inspired yet fresh, charming, and elegant all at the same time.”
