Deck the halls…In the heart of the historic Buckhead neighborhood, a charming 1930s home underwent a transformation that seamlessly blended tradition with modern elegance, creating a timeless residence that captured the essence of classic Southern architecture. The owners, a couple with a deep appreciation for history and a desire for contemporary comfort, along with Architect Ross Piper and Interior Designer Sande Beck embarked on a journey to revitalize their beloved home, striking a delicate balance between preserving its historical charm and infusing it with modern sophistication. Piper designed one of the standout features of the exterior renovation with the addition of a stately portico adorned with columns, giving a grand and welcoming presence to the home. Decorated for the holidays this abode is absolute perfection!
The home’s charm is accentuated by meticulously crafted moldings, arches, and various architectural details. The addition of crown moldings throughout adds a touch of sophistication, enhancing the classic appeal of each room. Arches gracefully frame doorways, contributing to a seamless flow between spaces. These architectural elements not only pay homage to the home’s historical roots but also inject a sense of character and refinement, creating an environment that strikes a perfect balance between tradition and modernity.
Interior Designer Sande Beck transformed the living spaces into havens of elegance, where classic and modern design seamlessly intertwined.
The color palette, influenced by the classic and timeless theme, enhances the overall ambiance of the living rooms. Thoughtfully chosen textiles, such as drapes and upholstery, contribute to the cozy and welcoming atmosphere.
These spaces become a reflection of the couple’s personal style, where every element is curated to contribute to the overall charm of the home.
The dining room has a refined atmosphere for gatherings and celebrations.
While the heart of the home, the kitchen, was reimagined as a space that seamlessly merged functionality with aesthetics. Timeless cabinetry was complemented by modern appliances, creating a chef’s paradise that retained a sense of old-world charm.
The butler’s pantry is perfect for displaying the owners treasured antique china.
The bar seamlessly continues the color scheme, matching the same shade of blue found in the butler’s pantry, creating a cohesive and connected ambiance between the two areas.
The primary bedroom is a sanctuary of comfort and style. A careful selection of textiles and furnishings enhanced the room’s elegance, offering a retreat where the couple could unwind in style. Awash in a serene color palette, the the primary bath is a haven for relaxation.
The couple’s vision of a “traditional but updated” home was not just realized but surpassed. Their “new” home successfully combines historical elements with modern features, showcasing a balance of timeless beauty and contemporary living through its architectural details. We couldn’t agree more!

MORE ABOUT THE SUMMER OF SONGBIRD
Four women come together to save the summer camp that changed their lives and rediscover themselves in the process in this heartwarming new novel from the New York Times bestselling author of The Wedding Veil.
Nearly thirty years ago, in the wake of a personal tragedy, June Moore bought Camp Holly Springs and turned it into a thriving summer haven for girls. But now, June is in danger of losing the place she has sacrificed everything for—and begins to realize how much she has used the camp to avoid facing difficulties in her life.
June’s niece, Daphne, met her two best friends, Lanier Bradley and Mary Stuart Harris, during a fateful summer at camp, and the three are inseparable even in their thirties. But when attorney Daphne discovers that Lanier’s fiancé—who just so happens to be her client—has done something highly illegal, she must choose between her job and her friendship.
Meanwhile, Lanier is hiding secrets both new and old that might make Daphne see the situation in an entirely different light. When one of those secrets unexpectedly rises to the surface, it threatens to change the very fabric of their friendship.
But when the women learn that their childhood oasis is in danger of closing, they put aside their own problems and band together with June to save it, sending them on a journey that promises to open the next chapters in their lives.
From an author whose “writing coats your soul with heart” (E! Online), The Summer of Songbirds is a lyrical and unforgettable celebration of female friendship, and a love letter to the places and people that make us who we are.
