Home improvement projects continue to move forward according to a recent Houzz survey for several reasons; limited choices of available homes, rising interest rates and others have no intentions of selling or moving in the near future. If you’re in this camp and looking for design inspiration, you will love taking a look at a few of the design techniques that make the 2022 Serenbe Designer Showhouse stand apart in style, elegance and practicality.
Tucked within a scenic yet tranquil neighborhood outside Atlanta, this neutral toned interior relied heavily on natural stone and wood incorporated within the design scheme with ease and livability. Soaring ceilings were balanced in scale with limestone walls and furnishings that softened the space with curvaceous seating. Natural elements throughout brought in warmth and practical living zones in a creative way.
Rustic meets contemporary in the refined kitchen space taking elegance to a new level with rounded fluted edges finishing out the island. This open kitchen features limestone walls and solid wood beams paired with a quartzite-lined niche housing the range.
Kitchen cabinetry radiates an elegant, modern, gray wood Shaker style doors by Bell Cabinetry finished off with a touch of glam, Hudson Grace hardware by Matthew Quinn.
Plaster walls, another design trend, covers the primary bedroom’s walls help to create a serene retreat for the homeowners. The sitting area adds layers of texture that support the serene theme.
Checkerboard marble flooring and hand painted floral wallcovering creates an ultra-inviting mudroom and laundry room. The blue cabinetry accented with unlacquered brass hardware creates a joyful environment for a mundane, yet necessary task.
Bold blue wallcovering in the Reading Room is complementary to the tweed-like wallcovering and draperies that define the daybed/reading area. All in all, a perfect escape for the serious book lover.
High style and contrast create a sophisticated palette in the bunk room with its black and white modern color scheme; did you notice how the brown and cream striped fabric that covers the bunks softens the palette?
A true living space, tucked within Serenbe’s scenic Grange neighborhood in the outskirts of Atlanta, sets the bar higher for inspired design!
