New Spins on Tradition

Who better to imagine a “ladies’ speakeasy” for an Atlanta showhouse than the New York designer Corey Damen Jenkins, who has made his name with fresh “remixes” of traditional design. For this she cave — located in the basement of a Regency-style residence where, Jenkins says, “no windows were to be found” — he cultivated a “heavenly garden atmosphere with an aesthetic that is elegant and fashion-forward.” The room’s standout feature is a stunning hand-painted bespoke mural from Gracie anchored by a curving custom banquette. Jenkins calls the whimsical dolphin bistro tables, from Maitland-Smith, natural “conversation starters” that also give the room a maximalist oomph. He partnered with William Word Fine Antiques, a 1stDibs seller, on selecting the eclectic array of vintage artworks, which break up the botanical theme and provide further layers of interest and color to contemplate while sipping a sweet tea mule.
