Atlanta Before and After
If you liked the keeping room I posted last week, you'll love the rest of home that designer Amy Morris updated for her parents. Of course, the basalt medallions in the entry had me at hello!
So much of the design I see online looks like it was decorated in a day via the internet, so I was happy to see that Amy used so many local sources. Of course, it takes longer and requires more foot-work to do it this "old-fashioned" way, but the end result is so much more personal.
You can see a more detailed source list here, but some of my favorite Atlanta spots were listed: Scott's Antique Market, South of Market, and Lewis & Sheron.
In the before photos, you can see that house was a pretty typical Colonial with a pretty typical 90's decorating job.
Amy brought it up to date with a simple color palette and chic furnishings.
I especially loved the more casual spaces like the breakfast room here, and the keeping room below. And I think I need some rope light fixtures in my life.
The wall color here is China White, by Benjamin Moore, which is the color I have in my kitchen and breakfast room (which I might start calling the keeping room! Ha.).
The dutch door and brick floor in the informal entry are so charming.
The master bedroom, before.
And now the lighter, brighter after.
The master bath, before.
And the much-improved after. I love the color of the vanity (Graphite by Benjamin Moore).
And finally, the master sitting room.
