How To's

Kingsview Project

Our Kingsview project wrapped this month and we're so excited to reveal the finished space!

This family has a beautiful new construction home, but they felt it lacked personality and wanted to infuse their own personal style to truly make it their own.

The Kingsview clients loved a light, bright, California coastal feel, so we kept their existing jute rug for texture and introduced a large, sandblasted coffee table for a nod to the coast.

Since their home is here in Atlanta, we balanced those "beachy" elements with more transitional pieces. We love the juxtaposition of the casual, coastal feel combined with the more refined pieces like the sofa and side tables. It keeps things interesting and you're not quite sure what's coming next!

We added a contrasting sofa in gray to complement their existing white sofa and positioned them in an L-shape for a cozy feel that kept the room feeling open to the adjoining entry.

A large marble top table sits between the sofas, joining the two visually, and creating the perfect spot for the large, plaster lamp. We love the contrast of the dark table with all the lighter elements in the space.

We added another pop of black opposite of the table with the comfortable sling chair that just screams "California cool."

The round shagreen side table is a nice contrast in shape and style to the modern lines of the chair.

A console beside the fireplace balances the bookshelves on the other side and brings more coastal texture to the space.

The accessories in this space really bring the room to life. Pops of blue and aqua paired with crisp whites, organic textures and natural greenery catch the eye and create that light and bright look they love.

We freshened up the kitchen space adding some natural woven dining chairs that added contrast to their existing wood table.

Leather barstools introduce another unexpected texture to the space and tie in with the dark wood hood over their range.

Functional and beautiful accessories finish off the space

The dining room sits at the front of the house, right off the entry so we really wanted it to set the tone for the rest of the home.

We added a soft but impactful wallpaper above the millwork to bring some subtle pattern to the space.

We loved the family's living room rug, so we moved it to the dining space and used a traditional and timeless dining table that the family was storing in the basement.

The rectangular shape was a better fit for the dimensions of the room and a linear chandelier follows the horizontal lines of the table, contrasting the vertical lines in the millwork.

The dining chairs really made all the difference in this room. To tie in that coastal feel, we added some curvy woven host chairs and again, paired them with something more refined.

The slate console adds a pop of black to a very neutral space and brings in another natural and organic texture.

The home now flows seamlessly from one room to the next with a light, bright and welcoming feel. You're greeted with unexpected combinations, interesting textures, and key statement pieces that create wow factor, without overwhelming the space. Most importantly, the house now reflects the family who lives here and what they love.
