WEST MIDTOWN PROJECT IN THE ATLANTA JOURNAL CONSTITUTION

Double-story living room with blue sofa, green chaise, cowhide rug, Article Abisko chair, and sputnik chandelier by Kevin O'Gara on Thou Swell #livingroom #livingroomdesign #homedecor #interiordesign #homedesign #homedecorideas I am excited to share a first full look at the West Midtown Project townhouse design, as featured in the AJC's Private Quarters column this past weekend! This project has come a long way since my mom moved in, as you can see in the project introduction. The contemporary architecture made a perfect backdrop for her antiques to really stand out, and I always love collaborating with my mom because the result is always a great combination of new and old! You can find a full profile on the house and my mom's favorite elements in the article here. See a tour of the house so far through my lens below, and stay tuned for the master bathroom renovation!
