Spotlight kitchen

This hip Reynoldstown kitchen has a mix of splurges and savings

As a veteran of home shows such as HGTV’s Elbow Room and Wise Buys, interior designer Kristen Fountain Davis excels at creating spaces that pop. For this kitchen she layered the sultry black cabinets with a custom hood, a white quartz–topped island, and large-scale brass lanterns, plus some striking upper shelves.
Go indigo

Elements of Style: Indigo decor is having a resurgence

The rich blues of this ancient plant dye are experiencing a fervent resurgence via compelling contemporary objects.
Property Brothers

HGTV’s Property Brothers coming to Atlanta for Book Festival of the MJCCA

Maybe it’s their good-natured sibling rivalry, or the diplomatic way they disarm sensitive homeowners (Sorry, but your “eggs with legs” collection is not a charming selling point). But HGTV stars Drew and Jonathan Scott are, as The Daily Beast once put it, “reality television’s crack cocaine.”

With chairs, decorations, accessories, and rugs, combine warm and cool metals to give your home a savvy balance.
Child room

A clever design for life with kids: This North Druid Hills room is for work and play

Room Envy: Glossy pinks and warm silver tones give this bathroom Hollywood glam

For instant glamour in a room, add a little sheen—or a lot.

Room Envy: Jimmy Stanton turned this garage into a modern-rustic pool house

All one color is my signature look,” says interior designer Jimmy Stanton, owner of Stanton Home Furnishings on the Westside and in Virginia-Highland. Taking a cue from the white facade of his circa-1851 estate in Madison, Georgia, Stanton extended the color scheme (or lack thereof) to his remodeled garage turned pool house, which sports a modern-rustic vibe.

New Oushak rugs offer a contemporary spin on an ancient style

With dreamy colors and traditional patterns, antique Oushak rugs have long been a staple of plush living rooms. But the Oushak style is popular anew—now with a modern refresh, according to Jason Moattar of ADAC’s Moattar Ltd. Here’s a 101 for buying your own.
Room Envy

Room Envy: In Tucker, an inviting space for reading (or binge-watching)

Tall ceilings and a modern sensibility don’t always add up to comfort, but this media room creates an inviting nook for reading—or binge-watching. “The rest of the house is bright white,” says Cara Cummins, an architect with TaC Studios, which designed the custom house in Tucker. “But the homeowners wanted this room to feel cozy.”
