FROM THE EDITOR

country style, big city living OK, I’ll admit it. I’m a city girl. I love everything about being immersed in the center of a city. From listening to the horns blow as the morning’s bumper-to-bumper traffic increases to hitting the pavement for a run as I weave between high-rises and office buildings, I can’t get enough of the hustle and bustle that comes along with city life. But as much as I am drawn to fast-paced living, I do miss the simplicity of country charm. Thankfully, I don’t have to be without it much longer. Several Atlanta companies are making it easy for city slickers such as myself to have access to furnishings that incorporate rural design elements. In our feature on Farmhouse Style (p. 60), we take a look at metro Atlanta homes that infuse rustic materials (reclaimed wood, timeless antiques) to give their urban residence a farmhouse feel.

Other highlights in this issue include our new Designer Details department where award-winning designer Matthew Quinn of Design Galleria Kitchen and Bath Studio tells us how to turn a blah bathroom into a bold beauty. His AKDO Impressions by Matthew Quinn tile collection shines bright. Read why metallics are a must-have on p. 27. You’ll also find backyard inspiration when you turn to our Unique Spaces story on p. 68. HGTV’s Chip Wade does it again as he makes a Johns Creek backyard both fun (batting cages, anyone?) and practical for a mother of two teenage boys. Write in and share what you’re up to around the house or show us your home’s best interior spaces via social media. We want to see what makes you happy! Here’s to taking your home to the next level. To learn more about us, go to: AtlantaHomeImprovement.com, AtlantaHomeImprovement.com follow us on (@MyHomeImprovement) and (@ATLHomeImprove).

In this issue, we also turn to top interior designers that have worked with homeowners to make the most of each room in Stunning Spaces (p. 29). From classic to modern, fabulous and functional features transform each area into its own magnificent masterpiece.

Stunning spaces Head-turning interiors with intricate details make the ultimate design difference By Stacy Moser

S

ome of the best interior designs look so effortless. They seem as if the room appeared by magic—composed, beautiful, and functional. But most interior designers will tell you that the effort it takes to make a room look “effortless” is sometimes Herculean. Designers must consider their clients’ tastes and integrate those with their wants and needs. This takes an eye for detail and a finger on the pulse of what’s trending and what’s timeless. We sought out these contractors and designers who have what it takes to make that magic happen.

Designers: Tavia Forbes and Monet Masters, owners of FORBES + MASTERS. ForbesMasters.com Location: East Atlanta A layer of crisp white surfaces allows textures such as burnished brass and Mongolian fur to take center stage in this living room while maintaining an airy feel. Chevron tile around the fireplace adds interest without overwhelming, and the painted boxed ceiling draws the eye upward. In keeping with the homeowner’s bold personality, saturated colors and distinctive prints were used to update timeless pieces for a custom transitional design. “Her love of color and collected relics from global travels inspired us at every turn to create an eclectic, fun, and feminine space,” says Tavia Forbes.

The marble countertops, reminiscent of creamy melted ice cream, contrast nicely with the cheery white cabinets. To tie it all together, Atlanta Concrete Artist’s Founder and President, Mike Jensen, was commissioned to create a beautiful blend of muted colors for the stained concrete floor. “The homeowner also loved the unique antique-glass tile backsplash above the counters and the light it reflects into the room,” notes general contractor Randy Glazer.

Expand Your Living Space: Introducing One-Day Concrete Coatings! From your garage and patio to your local stores, look around, concrete is everywhere. Resinous floor coatings are the new standard in concrete surface restoration, protection, and beautification. Tight Line Concrete Coatings provides a granite look with an orange peel texture, which makes it a great floor for many applications. Its durability and chemical resistance are important, especially for high-traffic areas and commercial applications. Roy, Amy, Terry Tight Line Concrete Coatings systems are installed by a two-person crew in just one day. Our professionally trained installers will grind the floor, and install the coating system in the morning, so when you return from work that same day, your floors will be ready to walk on. Our products also come with a 15-year manufacturer’s warranty.

Tight Line Concrete Coatings has the exclusive in Atlanta to offer the Penntek System, which is comprised of a 100% solids polyurea with unique technology that offers extreme adhesion, rapid cure, and maximum broadcast times. This system offers a quick 24-hour return to service, which means less time for homeowners to be out of their garage or other living spaces. Some of the advantages of this new system are that it is UV stable, chemical resistant, flexible, high gloss, abrasion resistant, and a textured surface. The most popular application is on garage floors but other typical uses are seen in patios, offices, showrooms, restrooms, service areas, locker rooms, production areas, veterinary clinics, and other high-traffic areas.

She spray-painted two MinkaLavery® lanterns a watermelon hue, she says, “to satisfy the homeowner’s love of bold color.” The finishing touch? Contemporary chairs that contrast with the vintage feel of the rest of the room. Photo courtesy of Julie Holloway, photography by Jennifer Kesler Photography.

Contractor: Eric Koehler, owner of Southland Development Services. SouthlandDevelopmentServices.com Location: Sandy Springs The eye-catching white tile serves as a clean, modern design element in this den. The contractor chose to counterbalance the monolithic fireplace with some horizontal elements—dark, rough-hewn timbers on the ceiling and the comfy, low-slung, leather sofa and chairs. The wood coffee table, textured rug and fuzzy pillows soften the other features of the room. Adding a whimsical light fixture to sparkle overhead and a touch of bright color with the vases on the table lightens the mood. Photography by Mary Powell Photography.

Contractor: Adam Pollock, owner of Castlehaven Design and Build. CastlehavenConstruction.com Designer: Rosemary Ullom of Rosemary Ullom Design Associates. 770-565-2056 Location: Marietta This bathroom serves a dual purpose—a bath for a basement bedroom and a changing room for the home's swimming pool outside. A deep-brown and rust palette delivers elegance. The granite countertop grounds the room with its rich venation and is the perfect platform for the stone sink. “The copper and rust shower tiles provided a great combination of the room’s colors and textures,” says Alan Pollock, Castlehaven Design and Build’s sales manager.

PROFILE a talk with

Tyler Lynch By Stacy Moser

Tyler Lynch is a man with a secret. A secret he is willing to share—to help save Georgia’s endangered architectural treasures. Starting at a very young age, Tyler spent time helping out at his mother’s antique store in Powder Springs, Georgia. Days spent wandering amongst the wonders of that shop—from gilt chandeliers to sumptuous brocade draperies to tiny dollhouse furniture—imbued in Tyler an appreciation for interior design. He created displays, arranged merchandise and even sold vintage wares he had sourced on his own. As he grew up, Tyler worked at antique fairs and gift markets at AmericasMart, cultivating relationships with designers, storeowners, event planners and photographers that would become the basis for his future career. Now, as the metro Atlanta territory manager for Codarus, a national home décor showroom, Tyler takes advantage of that huge network of design resources to bring people together in the hunt for inspirational interior design.

Thrifting is the search for fabulous, low-cost, hidden treasures in out-of-the-way places ...

“I’ve always been a ‘people person,’” Tyler relates, smiling. “And when I can share my love for design and my passion for history and architecture with anyone I meet, I’m in my element.” It only seems natural that Tyler was more aware than most young adults about the fascinating history behind Georgia’s homes and public places. “One reason I feel so strongly about historic preservation now,” he explains, “is because so many buildings that I always loved are being torn down.” Tyler decided it wasn’t enough to mourn the loss of those architectural treasures—he wanted to make an impact on the

problem himself. Colleagues and clients had always tried to coax out of him his secret “vintage thrifting” resources— why not use that knowledge to fundraise? “Thrifting is the search for fabulous, lowcost, hidden treasures in out-of-the-way places—whether it’s an obscure vintage doorknob or an antique bureau with lots of secret doors. Part of the thrill is that you never know what you’ll find,” he enthuses.

“No better way to say it: The early bird gets the worm! Start thrifting as early as you can. I was in North Carolina the other day at a small shop where they had just gotten in some gorgeous iron gates at 8 in the morning. I was able to snap them up because I was there early. No way would those gates have been there if I’d shown up at noon.” Facebook.com/ThriftWithTyler and Instagram@ThriftWithTyler The Georgia Trust for Historic Preservation, GeorgiaTrust.org

Now he reveals his resources, little-known shops and vendors in and around Atlanta, to raise money for The Georgia Trust for Historic Preservation. He arranges a bus tour, called “Thrift with Tyler,” that whisks enthusiastic antique hunters around town as he wines and dines them, sharing with them his infectious passion. “Everyone loves thrifting with Tyler,” says Atlanta-based writer Betsy Riley, who admires Tyler’s decision to divulge his secrets. “He decided to go public with his favorite places if it raised money for a good cause.”

the right fix If It's Broke, You Can Fix It! …Well, Maybe.

The problem:

The problem:

I want to convert my small spare bedroom into a home office. How can I maximize storage space?

I blew my budget on a new bed, and don’t have the funds for a headboard. Any ideas?

The fix: Floating shelves (so-called because there are no brackets that show) are an easy way to convert a small closet into an attractive shelving unit. Remove the door from the closet, along with the hinges. Use spackling paste to hide the holes where the hinges connected to the doorframe. When the spackle dries, sand it lightly so its surface is even with the doorframe. Next, purchase unfinished wood floating-shelf kits from a local DIY store that are the width of your closet interior and at least two feet deep. Install the shelves to fit your storage needs and then paint them and the doorframe with a fresh coat of paint.

The fix: Here’s one very simple solution: Create a headboard using decorative wood molding that is nailed to the wall as an outline of a “faux” headboard. Cut pieces of molding at least 1-inch wide to outline where a headboard would normally be. Stain or paint the pieces in a color that contrasts with the wall. Attach them to the wall with finishing nails. You can stop here, or paint the inside of the “headboard” a hue that differs from the wall color.

The problem: I discovered mold under the carpet in our basement. I’ve removed the carpet and pressure-washed the floor, but what do I do about that weird smell?

The fix: That weird smell is probably a byproduct of mold that invaded the basement’s concrete floor. Concrete is porous, so it will absorb a bad odor just like a sponge. Try painting the floor with a concrete coating product from Kilz®. The company’s floor paints are meant to completely seal and deodorize concrete. Check with a home improvement store to find the right product for your situation. Be aware that the floor paint can make the surface slippery— Kilz® has a product to address that issue, too.

I can laugh about it now… I used drywall to finish my basement walls when I remodeled. Little did I know that you should never cut drywall with a circular saw—it created a giant cloud of dust that went everywhere, including inside my saw. The saw jammed and I had a cleanup job that lasted for days. It turns out you should use a razor knife to partially cut through the drywall’s surface and then it will just snap in half. Avoid using a power tool on drywall at all costs!

REMODEL

ch-ch-changes For the Different Stages of Life By Stacy Moser

from drab kitchen pantry to dramatic wine cellar This Midtown couple was ready to reinvigorate their social life after their “nest” emptied and the kids moved out. They desired a place in the home to display their extensive wine collection, and didn’t want to store it in their basement, which was inconvenient to access when entertaining. Instead, they decided to transform their existing kitchen pantry into the wine cellar of their dreams.

we love smart solutions!

Why relegate wine storage to the basement when you can make it a dramatic focal point in the entertainment epicenter of your home? Enter remodeling consultant Jennifer Reed of Atlanta’s MOSAIC Group [Architects and Remodelers]. Her goal was to create a focal point with the wine cellar, using materials that were reflective of the contemporary feel of the rest of the house. “The most important aspect of this space is the dramatic lighting,” she explains. “We chose LED lights to prevent the room from heating up—which would negatively affect the wine.” They also commissioned a custom art piece to add color and elegance to the room. The wood countertops were faux-finished to look like the concrete countertops that existed elsewhere. Finally, they installed custom glass doors with metal frames to match the windows of the house. “The homeowners are ecstatic about transforming this space. It’s very dramatic and modern in its design, which flows well with the rest of the house.”

WHOLE-HOUSE RENOVATION

Built in 1956 with numerous additions and renovations along the way, this northside Atlanta home went from tired to completely refreshed. The dated floor plan and random updates were flawlessly brought together for the custom requirements of this family. Unfinished attic space was transformed to a son’s teen retreat. The master suite private entrance leads to an office, a bedroom and an updated master bath. A powder room was created in a more appropriate location, also creating a central common family space with both desk and table to accommodate multiple family activities. Conveniently off the fully renovated kitchen is a new mud entry and a larger laundry area. The sunny family room boasts a custom entertainment center, a wet bar and direct access to a new outdoor living space.

MAJOR KITCHEN REMODEL

Mast Cabinetry specializes in custom and semi-custom cabinetry. The third-generation Amish Heritage familyowned-and-operated company was founded by Willis Mast. In collaboration with Rocco Sinisgalli, owner of Oneida Builders, Inc., the two worked together on an eight-week kitchen project. And after consulting with the homeowners, Mast and Sinisgalli created a fun yet functional kitchen that showcases both modern and traditional elements. The kitchen has a unique U-shaped island, a custom heat-resistant wall cabinet to house the TV above the cooktop, and a relaxing coffee bar. To achieve its open concept, a concealed beam replaced the old wall between the kitchen and dining room. And to bring in natural light, Oneida installed a large fixed glass window overlooking a new deck.

About Habitat for Humanity ReStore in Metro Atlanta Suburban Atlanta Habitat ReStores support the mission of local Habitat affiliates to build quality green homes, communities and hope in 12 suburban Atlanta counties. Proceeds from the NARI Atlanta Tour of Remodeled Homes will benefit Habitat for Humanity ReStore. Habitat for Humanity International operates in all 50 states of the United States, the District of Columbia, Guam, Puerto Rico and dozens of other countries. The ReStore concept began in 1991 as a way to utilize home goods and materials offered to the Habitat organization by well-meaning donors. Staff and volunteers accept donations of new and gently used furniture, lighting, home improvement items, appliances and building materials, which are then offered for sale at deep discounts to the public, generating funds for the affiliates’ home-building projects and keeping tons of usable items out of landfills. The inventory can vary by location and time of visit. Merchandise is contributed by individuals, well-known manufacturers, retail stores, builders and remodelers. All donations must be in excellent physical and working condition. Based on individual circumstances, donors may qualify for a tax deduction. “What makes this business unique is that everyone benefits,” said NARI Atlanta’s Executive Director Jesse Morado. “Donors may qualify for a tax deduction, remodelers save dumpster fees, materials don’t end up in landfills and shoppers get a valuable discount.”

Tuff Shed – He Shed v.

So what’s a She Shed for then? With Tuff Shed, the possibilities are endless. How about an art studio, craft room, reading nook, gardening haven or yoga retreat? See these sheds side by side and you decide – is it right for your backyard?

FARMHOUSE

Style

From the suburbs straight to the city, elements of this popular rural look are popping up in Atlanta homes. By Stacy Moser

I

ronically, one of the best ways to update your home’s décor or curb appeal is to take it backwards. Back in time, that is—with design elements from the past that have been given a new life. Farmhouse style, with its simple, country-fresh appeal, is what’s trending now in the design world. The style retreats from the high-tech wizardry around us and celebrates quirky, vintage objects displayed in a clean, neutral background, armed with a pop of cool color. Anita Corsini, co-host of HGTV’s “Flip or Flop Atlanta” (with her husband, Ken) explains her passion for the farmhouse influence: “I truly love this style. It has a simple elegance that radiates functionality. It’s most common to see exteriors with clean lines painted white with a touch of an accent color, like gray, beige or black.

DistinctionTM Rustic Walnut


Inside, you see simple lines, basic cabinetry, and light colors on the walls. Then you can take an old piece of furniture, restore it and display it as a treasured focal point in a room. My favorite aspect is the style’s use of texture. In kitchens, open shelving is used instead of cabinets and exposed brick or reclaimed wood is used on walls and floors.” She says that even urban homeowners in downtown condos can achieve the farmhouse look.

“First, clear all your clutter! This look is all about minimalism. In kitchens, paint your island a soft color—and you can always change the backsplash tile to reflect a farmhouse feel. Use area rugs to define open spaces and use baskets to add a touch of character. A large light fixture above a big dining table also gives you a farmhouse vibe. Farmhouse style incorporates old and new. It’s easy to attain—it doesn’t require an overabundance of materials or fancy furnishings.”

ELLIS

When a mom in Johns Creek wanted her active teenage boys to have an outdoor space to play, she turned to HGTV’s Chip Wade for help. The “Elbow Room” host worked to maximize the usefulness of the family’s backyard by adding cool features like a pool deck with moveable sections, a recessed fire pit, and a batting cage. “It’s really built for year-round enjoyment,” Wade says. “The platforms that move along the pool transform its functionality to accommodate a variety of entertaining options like extending the sun deck for a party,” he says.

we love the practicality of this backyard! Each area gets utilized, which isn’t a commonality when creating the perfect outdoor space. And since the teenagers love baseball, the batting cage disguised by a custom trellis “lets the boys enjoy their favorite sport while not having the yard appear too juvenile,” Wade says. Extra perk? “We were able to get former Atlanta Braves catcher, Javier López, out for batting practice,” he says. “The boys loved it … and so did I!”

Thermacore series steel doors can be designed with any window configuration to fit the preference of the homeowner and style of the home. These Modern Aluminum series doors replaced the more dated, standard 25-year-old wood doors.

This was a “curb appeal” upgrade with a custom wood door, which was made in our Midtown woodshop. This upgrade also addresses the sloping ground issue and provided a tighter seal following the ground line.

Carriage House steel doors replaced the wood doors that were original to the home. The new steel insulated doors have tripled the R-Value of the original doors and require much less maintenance. In addition, the switch to a three-section door makes the windows much more impactful.

fter installing flooring solutions for 30 years in over 5,000 homes throughout Atlanta, you might say floor design is in our blood and definitely our passion. Today, there are so many flooring options available, but carpet is the best choice if you want a soft cushioning underfoot. Narrowing the choices in carpet alone still can be overwhelming. Do you want nylon or wool? Loop, pile or shag? What color? Do you want an “eco-friendly” product? And of course, what is your budget? This is where our years of experience and expertise come in handy. We help with the selection process to best fit your needs—whether you have a toddler, pets or an elderly adult moving in, we can help provide the perfect solution. We assess what rooms will have carpet, how much traffic that area will see and who will be marching (or crawling) across the floor and these answers are key factors in deciding the type of carpet to recommend.

A

ll decks are created equal, correct? Not at Decks and More, Inc. where we specialize in details and listen to your wants, needs and budget. A deck needs to be safe and sturdy, so we use quality material like 6”x6” #1 grade lumber and composite decking. We assign a dedicated project manager for every job and warranty our work, so if a problem occurs we’ll take care of it. We’ve built decks with domed roofs, curved exteriors that blend beautifully with pools and outdoor living spaces and decks with fireplaces, entertainment systems and outdoor kitchens.

AFTER

We are not cookie-cutter builders. We go the extra mile to deliver a custom design and outdoor oasis to serve you and your family best.

BEFORE

We were proud to be named the 2015 Regional and National Contractor of the Year (CoTY) for Residential Additions under $100K and for Residential Exteriors under $100K.
