Please pardon our mess. We’re renovating!

Atlanta Homes & Lifestyles


We are big fans of all sorts of decor. Bright and bold, rustic and farmhouse chic, whimsical and fun…

But, if we had to pick a favorite, nothing, to us, creates a soothing home–the kind that makes you exhale when you walk through the back door–quite like a palette of neutrals with a touch of blue

In this dining room, pattern and texture create a room that is soothing but never boring,

And an uncluttered feel in keeping with the color scheme makes for a relaxing TV room with plenty of comfortable seating for the whole family.

This chic light fixture proves that neutrals don’t need to be boring,

And, sometimes, the simplest vignettes are the chicest. (This chair has us swooning!)

Some houses feel absolutely pitch perfect, each room flowing to the next and the next effortlessly. From a sunlit kitchen,

To a serene bedroom suite, this lovely home is most certainly one of those.

This is the kind of home that we could move right in, sleep soundly and forget all the stresses of life. What about you?

Elle Decor
When designing the rooms where we live the most, it’s all about a fabulous sofa.
For a sleek, room-defining look that’s the ultimate in sophistication, nothing beats a tufted couch.

Southern Living
We love the open legs and compact look of this beautiful loveseat. 
Phoebe Howard

But for a room where you plan to do a lot of living, something deep and comfortable fits the bill!

William Hodgins Design
We generally think of tufted tufted couches for manly, hunt-inspired rooms like this one… 

Phoebe Howard
But a sweet shape and precious pleated skirt give this staple a totally different look!

Greige Design
So often, tufted sofas are featured in dark leathers, but this light, juicy eggplant is a fun, fresh take that is oh so springy!

Thibaut Design
A neutral is never finer than in this tailored, constructed look. The fantastic shape adds loads of interest to a simple fabric.

Tufted sofas are better when they’re L-O-N-G! We would love to pile the whole family on here with a little popcorn for a fun (and sophisticated!) movie night!
Windsor Smith
This room is made for getting ready in the most leisurely fashion! We think Audrey would totally approve!
Johanna Henderson Photography
Change the fabric and change the look. This comfy fabric tones down the glamour for a place we would love to curl up in front of a roaring fire with a good book! Would you like a tufted sofa, or is the look too — well — buttoned up?! 
Wishing you a wonderful Wednesday!
