House Tour: B.D. Jeffries Owners’ Buckhead Home

B.D. Jeffries owner's home entrance hall

We all have them, those favorite shops that are our must-visits every time we go to a certain town. 

B.D. Jeffries owner's living room

For us, in Charlotte and Atlanta, one of those stores is B.D. Jeffries.

So it is a particular treat to share the Buckhead home of B.D. Jeffries owners Brad and Debbie Weitz. 

B.D. Jeffries owner's abstract art

One look and it was evident that their house, like their store, was going to be a fast, fast favorite.

B.D. Jeffries owner's books

This is one of those homes that should be beside “chic” in the dictionary. 

B.D. Jeffries owner's foyer

There’s really no other word.

At once austere and well-collected,

The right mix of antique and new,

B.D. Jefferies owner's dining room

It is abundantly clear that the aesthetic that inspires the store we love so much has also inspired its owners’ home.

B.D. Jefferies owner's bedroom

Layered, soft and oh-so-cozy, this is the type of bedroom that lends itself to curling up with a pile of books and staying for awhile. 

B.D. Jefferies owner's porch

We love porches that blend the outside and inside seamlessly. Everything about this porch is perfection.

And the exterior is so utterly charming, a signal of the graciousness that awaits inside.

We couldn’t love this gorgeous home any more! What is your favorite part?

Concrete Uses for Every Room of Your Home

concrete fireplace in the living room
Architectural Digest

If we’re being totally honest, when we think of chic, luxury materials to make a home super chic, concrete isn’t the first thing that comes to mind.

Architectural Digest

Of course, it makes for a beautiful driveway and a great parking pad and a stunning garage floor. But concrete in the home hasn’t always been on our radar.

Jessica Helgerson – One Kings Lane

 It is now! As these photos will attest, concrete floors are too, too fabulous. Stained or stamped, they can really create any look you can imagine!

Brooks and Falotico Architects

Need a shelf that is chic and sturdy? No problem.

Loi Thai – Tone on Tone

Looking for a countertop that is durable and maybe a little bit different? Concrete has your back!

I would have guessed this countertop was slate or even a honed granite. Nope!

Atlanta Homes & Lifestyles

We are loving this shade of gray–and this sneaky dog food storage. How convenient!

Tracery Interiors

But concrete isn’t just for built-ins. This fabulous dining table is made of it too! Aren’t those curtains great?

Concrete is such a versatile and functional surface, making it perfect for bathrooms.

No more worries about the wet floor!

concrete sink in bathroom
McAlpine, Booth and Ferrier

While we love the look of concrete that has been polished and sealed, it’s pretty great in its raw form as well.

Lonny

Concrete has always been an outdoor staple, and this fire pit adds style in droves to an outdoor seating area.

From the garden to the guesthouse, the kitchen to the carport, there’s a great use for concrete in any space!

In Good Taste: Eric Piasecki Photography

kitchen

 There’s a reason we don’t have a bunch of pictures of our own houses on our blog. We’re terrible photographers! No doubt about it, photographing is a real art, and photographing homes is a style all its own. The most fabulous home can look below par in the hands of an amateur photographer. That’s why we are so enamored of the photography of the very talented Eric Piasecki. From the kitchen to the office to the dining room, Piasecki makes every paint color, wood floor and piece of hardware shine under the right light. We hope you love this photographer’s good taste as much as we do!
