I’ve been popping in and out of blogland due to the fact that I’m in the throes of a 45-day renovation project I’m working on here in Atlanta for an international family while also managing existing client work. I love everything about the design/build process and learn so much for my subcontractors especially when dealing with an existing structure vs. new construction. You never know what you will uncover during the demo process! More on that in the upcoming days…
Some of the more controlled aspects of the job include creating architectural interest in an otherwise nondescript space. Custom millwork brings a cookie-cutter home to life and provides a great return on your investment. Here’s a sneak peek and believe me there’s more to come…
Pediments, wainscoting, crown molding, and thicker baseboards, as seen above, take the first floor of this house from coach to first class! We’re also renovating three bathrooms and the kitchen. New lighting, paint, hand-scraped wood flooring, and plush carpeting are also game changers in this renovation. That’s just the interior portion of the job. The exterior will be equally satisfying. Oh, so much to do!
On Wednesday, we’re installing a unique window treatment in a sprawling estate just outside of Atlanta. The home is mostly furnished, but the windows need to be addressed. Just to give you an idea of the gorgeousness we’re dealing with, here’s a snapshot of the home’s rotunda:
The ceiling soars and the chandelier sings, I swear.
I’m also in-town to full-furnish a 2-BR/2BA Brookwood condo, it’s the neighborhood that bridges Midtown to Buckhead. Being back in that area reminds me of first condo in Midtown. City views, running in the park, walking to my favorite restaurants, much different than my new life in suburbia!
The client’s design aesthetic is more contemporary than most spaces I design, but I welcome the change. Here are a few sofas we’re looking at and hopefully we’ll have a final decision by tomorrow afternoon.
I hardly ever get this type of cooperation for a photo.
Though I see them everyday, it’s so different for me to see them in a photograph. I’m sooooo grateful they are mine
So, what’s new with you? Do tell.
