THE OLD WORLD CHARM OF AN ATLANTA COTTAGE

Have you heard of Shon Parker? He is an award winning interior designer that started his firm in 2000. He has been featured in many magazines, including the February issue of House Beautiful where he shows off the renovation of an Atlanta home with an old world English cottage feel. The owner had her eye on the property for over 15 years before calling it her own. She enlisted Shon Parker to design the interiors, which include some of the architectural salvage pieces she collected over the years. (My kinda gal!) Many equestrian inspired pieces are also included, like a pair of the owner’s old riding boots sitting underneath the entry console. This is not surprising since she rode dressage for many years. I’m loving the color scheme used throughout. It gives the home an oh, so very cozy feel. And cozy sounds great right about now given the fact that a storm is current passing through Southern California.

The entry’s deep, dark wood paneling was a new material added to the home to help unify it with the rest of the house. The “before” (inset) and “after” document the transformation of the space.

The cast iron mantle was retained and privacy is added to the doorway to the master bedroom with the use of silk curtains.

    I think I LOVE absolutely everything about this charming home! The before and afters are amazing, what a transformation! Thanks for sharing this, as I have just realized my subscription to House Beautiful has expired so I would have missed this otherwise. Stay dry!

      I love a good before and after. It’s such a great way to document progress no matter how big or small a project may be. I just renewed my subscription to HB…its been one of my favorites for many, many years.

    This is right up my alley as far as great, classic cottages go. I love the fireplace in the master bedroom and several other rooms as well.
    xo,
