Passport to ITALY

For a lifelong friend, Atlanta designer JOHN OETGEN creates a home with a distinctly Venetian accent.

"She is an artist, a philanthropist and a woman of great style. I wanted to give her the sense of an Italian apartment in a dusty old palazzo." — JOHN OETGEN

MODERN MAGIC

Inside an unassuming 1970’s Buckhead home, JOHN OETGEN and JOHN LINEWEAVER make themselves at home among a superlative collection of 20th century decorative arts.

“Everything we buy wasn’t because of who did it. I don’t care about collecting an autograph. These are the things that make me smile when I see them...” — JOHN OETGEN

SIMPLY ELEGANT

In a Manhattan pied-a-terre, designer JOHN OETGEN evoked the Cole Porter era, when luxury went hand-in-hand with wit, and the time always seemed to be around midnight.

Unmistakably SOUTHERN

“The hood is suppose to look like a fabric canopy. It’s done in hand-hammered zinc. The pediments and finials are like little temples. I wanted the kitchen to be fun and amusing. The pale chartreuse tile is like olive oil. I’ve spent so much time in French brasseries. I wanted the kitchen to look like that, with the tile and the iron and the marble, and those great green and blue chairs.”— JOHN OETGEN

INTO THE WOODS

At his mountain retreat, designer JOHN OETGEN forgoes antlers, logs and taxidermy for things more personal: family heirlooms, contemporary art… and a touch of whimsy.

SYMPHONY Showhouse

“The room was so large that I wanted the versatility of a large round table in the middle to use for parties, dining, entertaining, art projects books, flowers, etc... An Alexander Calder I bought in Paris several years ago seemed to call for a natural surrounding, like a garden room: so many of Calder’s large monument pieces were designed for gardens or light, air-filled spaces in private places and museums.” — JOHN OETGEN

A Masterful MIX

Adept at contemporary as well as traditional design, JOHN OETGEN is a master at creating open, airy interiors where fine art and furniture stand out against elegant color schemes.

“I’m not one for an overly decorated look that screams a certain style or period... I like beautiful old things, whether they are in a traditional setting or used sparingly in a contemporary way in a modern house.”— JOHN OETGEN
