People from all over the world now call Atlanta home, and while enamored with Southern interior design, many prefer to bring elements from their favorite memento, former city or childhood abode into their Atlanta home’s decor.
Are you living in the suburbs but miss the city life? Sleek, trendy furnishings, bright colors married with neutrals, geometric designs, and polished finishes can bring a touch of the city to your home. Inject a feeling of old New York for a classic touch, or incorporate penthouse apartment design into a suburban home to bring yourself closer to the city.
If you grew up in the country, perhaps you’d enjoy adding rustic features to your city home. One way to do that is to add detail through select finishes such as bead board, textured pieces, or pastoral accessories. Soft whites, browns, reds, pale green, yellows, and florals can bring a French country vibe to your city dwelling.
Perhaps you’d like to add a touch of little classic style to your home. Redress your fireplace with a turn of the century stone mantel, add an antique chandelier to the room, scatter rugs with rich accents and add timeless accessory pieces to your tables, walls, and shelves—the possibilities are endless.
Take the green grass, blue sky, and a peacock-inspired motif with polished, cylindrical and wavy accents in our feature photo. Can you see the repetition of design played out on the rug, pillows, and accent fixtures? Note the peacock sitting on the chest and how the “eye” of his feather is in the composition of the rug’s pattern.
This photo, taken at the High Point Designers’ Market this spring, is just one of many examples of how our Atlanta-based Interior Decorators can build upon a favorite element or exciting feature in your living space. Do you have a particular piece that inspires you? How would you define your style?
