Feature Friday: Designer Decorating with What You Love

I loved this article from Traditional Home, highlighting a newly built home in Atlanta.  This Atlanta interior designer worked with her architect to produce a beautiful new home, that looks old.  She wanted the house to appear as if it has been here forever and used architectural items in the house to achieve the look.

You can read the entire article above and see all the details on this beautifully designed and decorated home.  You are going to be inspired!


This lovely home looks like it belongs in the French countryside.  Beautiful exterior!

Traditional Home

You can read all about how the interior of the home was designed and implemented.


Beautiful, traditional furnishings.


I especially love this wall with the center table and gallery wall above.  This speaks to symmetry and beauty at the same time.


Close up of the blue and white accessories, always a classic.


Kitchen eating area.  Love this! This home is far more than most of us can imagine having, but what great ideas to glean.


One totally gorgeous kitchen, don’t you agree?


A soothing and calming bedroom.


Along with a masterbath that is to die for.


Be still my heart, with this outdoor fireplace and covered porch.

So, even if we can’t afford a gorgeous home such as this and I’m speaking for myself here, let’s get some ideas from it, shall we!  I hope you enjoyed this tour from Traditional Home as much as I did!

  1. I love the exterior of the home, so FC. I think the mirror over the fireplace would be a great project to copy. Lots of inspiration in this home.

  2. jodi from new jersey says:

    I love this house, every inch of it, especially the window shades. I will try to copy them– I’ll give it a shot. Love the chairs in the kitchen , too. They remind me of the Calais chair at Pottery Barn I have my eye on.!

  3. I loved this one, too, Rhoda! The beams in some of the room are inspired. Wonderful marriage of Old World and contemporary. 🙂
    Happy Friday!

  4. I love this house, especially the exterior. Thanks for sharing such beautiful architecture on your blog.

  5. Rhoda, it is a beautiful home and I was lucky enough to tour it in person a few years ago when it was on a home tour. It was my favorite on the tour.

  6. What a beautiful home! Love the kitchen and that outdoor space is a dream! Thanks for sharing.

  7. I love the table in the kitchen! Yea, the kitchen isn’t to shabby either! 🙂

  8. I love how serene each room is. It is not over-decorated like so many of the rooms we see in blogland.

  9. That is one beautiful home. I can’t decide if my favorite room is the kitchen or master bedroom………..definitley the bedroom. Thanks for the tour.

  10. Wow, those rooms are gorgeous, cozy, and inviting… all at the same time.

  11. This is my dream home! I absolutely love every single detail!
