FROM THE EDITOR

Congratulations are in order It’s the moment you’ve all been waiting for. The big reveal is finally here. You voted for Atlanta’s top kitchen and bath designers and seven companies stood out from the rest. The work presented by each and every single one of these skilled designers showcases their creative talent. So congratulations are in order! And the fun champagne- and food-filled photo shoot celebration we held at Cambria Gallery by CR Home to honor not only the winners, but the design community as a whole, displayed the respect and appreciation that everyone has for one another. Seeing people hugging, sharing stories, and discussing the future of kitchen and bath design was a heartfelt experience. I’m truly honored to have witnessed this and to be a part of Atlanta Best Media’s 16th Annual Kitchen & Bath issue.

Also in this issue, you’ll find that one of our favorite friends, HGTV’s Chip Wade, is back at it again. In our Unique Spaces story on p. 82, he helps a Sandy Springs mom and dad turn a dark attic into an open-concept master suite complete with freestanding bathtub. It’s the perfect respite for when the parents want to spend time away from the kids. Another awesome transformation is found in Ch-Ch-Changes (p. 22). Here, part of a boring backyard is converted into a spa sanctuary. Who wouldn’t want to come home to this?! Write in and share what you’re up to around the house via social media. We’d love to hear from you, see your style inspiration, and so much more. To learn more about us, go to: AtlantaHomeImprovement.com, AtlantaHomeImprovement.com follow us on (@MyHomeImprovement) and (@ATLHomeImprove).

And although our Kitchen & Bath Designer Contest and 2018 interactive Kitchen & Bath Planner is most certainly a highlight, we’ve also packed this magazine with additional nuggets of information that you’ll find handy. Our Find It Local (p. 19) department offers up haute linen napkins (available in 25 colors) from the new Hudson Grace store at Westside Provisions District. After meeting with its co-founders, Gary McNatton and Monelle Totah, it’s easy to see why they believe that “everything should be a piece of art.”

REMODEL

ch-ch-changes For the Different Stages of Life

from uninspiring backyard to revitalizing spa Sandy Springs empty nesters, Bill and Cindy, always dreamed of owning an atomic-style ranch home (also referred to as mid-century modern). So when the chance to renovate an almost 4,000-square-foot rancher arose, they jumped at the opportunity. Enter Bryan Jones of Jones Pierce, Inc. Jones expanded the home’s space by connecting its indoor and outdoor areas. Busting out the old back wall of the master bedroom and replacing it with floor-to-ceiling windows created a full view of this stunning outdoor shower oasis.

we love smart solutions!

An outdoor shower that affords privacy is achieved through custom-made pivoting walls by Stage Left Fabrication. In keeping with mid-century style signature characteristics, which emphasize geometric lines, large windows, and integration with nature, Jones says, “The shower was conceived as a Zen garden element.” Larger river stones that make up the shower floor and nearby potted plants tie in the outdoors. Jones also sought to provide much needed privacy. “We tried out new ideas on this shower where the wood walls can pivot open to commune with nature or close to shower for privacy.” Typically utilized as a part of the indoor master bath, Bill and Cindy also use this shower to rinse off after a dip in the pool and as a place to wash off messy grandkids.

Bryan Jones, AIA, CPHC

• Custom residential design studio director and co-founder of Jones Pierce, Inc. • Member of the American Institute of Architects and the Society of Classical Art and Architecture • Jones loves crafting custom residential projects. He is currently interested in working on tasks that combine resilient and classical design. • JonesPierce.com

KITCHEN WINNER Kristen Yonson

SwatchPop!

1 ST

Kristen Yonson and Jessica McRae are the co-founders of popular interior design site SwatchPop! The online platform offers help for your decorating dilemmas by pairing you with a professional designer once you've completed a personal style questionnaire. Yonson took time off from running her business to design her own kitchen recently.

“My inspiration was mostly to create a space to entertain,” she explains. The room’s focus was the large island―perfect for seating planned, even for a seasoned designer. She says she’d found the ideal slab of marble for the countertop. However, when it was time for installation, she was devastated to learn that the slab had broken in half, forcing her to go with a different choice in order not to delay construction of her Milton home. She asserts that a designer always has to stay flexible―“I moved ahead with a slab that had irregular, odd veining because it was the only one I could find. But now that slab is my favorite part of the kitchen! It was meant to be!” she laughs. SwatchPop.com

white color achieved the brightness and adding the contrast of dark gray in the island and a touch of pale green in the tile gave it a fresh, yet warm feel.” Her favorite part of the design? “The existing kitchen window wasn’t showcased to its fullest potential,” she says. “So I used a crackled porcelain subway tile framing the window all the way to the ceiling, added new sconces, and combined it all with a new farmhouse sink. Now it’s the focal point of the kitchen!”

design firm. Elliott transformed

this Johns Creek kitchen from dull to dynamic. “We opened up the floor plan between the family room and kitchen. This allowed us to enlarge the island and add a bar space,” says Elliott, the project’s lead designer. Once the layout was done, the team got to work with the design details. “Our color palette was gray, white and silver. We chose gray floor tile and the backsplash combines white glass tiles and a mosaic of silver, metal and mirror.” For a quirky touch, they added orange velvet chairs in a seating area flanking the inviting fireplace. “The light fixtures and the coffered ceiling add drama and help connect the two areas.”

This vintage-inspired master bathroom was created for a family rebuilding their home in the Virginia-Highland area. Interior Designer Jenny Warner used nods to the original materials of the home―a key to the success of the design. “Elements like the clawfoot tub, plumbing fixtures, and detailed casement windows with mullions all give a traditional feel that the neighborhood is

long space in the room “begged to have some type of pattern in the floor. I’m really proud of how it turned out and the way it draws the space together and shows off that tub!” She says that the hexagon-shaped marble tiles that she chose for the shower floor is a style that would have been used in that neighborhood originally around 1918. She says of the installation process, “It took some drawings and onsite direction to get the precise layout that worked best for the space. That poor tile guy putting up with my exacting demands for this floor was totally worth it!” JThomasDesigns.com

Owner/Designer Marni Ratner of Studio M Interiors along with Jennifer Davis brought this Midtown home’s bathroom, built in 1922, into the 21st century. “We wanted to provide

beautiful yet functional updates without going too contemporary, since many historical elements of the house remained untouched. Using iconic subway tiles and dark grout as the shower’s focal point, we were able to mix in modern fixtures and finishes to create a timeless, balanced blend. Originally, this bathroom only had two pedestal sinks, a clawfoot tub, a cave-like shower and one water closet. It was quite cramped. Although its footprint was relatively small, we were able to create two separate vanities, a spacious, bright corner shower and two water closets―which the owners jokingly referred to as the ‘marriage saver’ bathrooms! The overall result had much more storage and a more spacious feeling,” says Davis, lead designer.

CSI KITCHEN & BATH STUDIO This remarkable Brookhaven kitchen remodel manages to perfectly marry the cool, crisp lines of modern industrial design with the warmth of wood details. The effect is not only eye-catching, but inviting as well. The designers felt that the use of multiple textures and colors and the interplay of cabinet heights and depths would bring their vision to life. The designer wisely showcased the industrial-style trusses in the ceiling by repeating its color and pattern in the hardwood floor below. “The color gray was for a sense of calm, the wood and glass were for variety and red accents for vivacity,” says marketing assistant, Debra Bobo.

Professional organizer and owner of To Do List Organizing, Robyn Brandman, has worked to help Atlanta families create multifunctional kitchen spaces that fit their lifestyle. Here are her top tips to keep your cookhouse clean. Take command of chaos: Avoid clutter on countertops by creating a “command center” on a wall in the kitchen to hold keys and more. Group together goodies: Buy baskets to corral snacks and other like items. Store the most frequently used items at eye level.

escape to the sky A shared family bathroom and two busy kids had Sandy Springs parents Erik and Susanne Olson in desperate need of their own space. HGTV’s Chip Wade, host of the Emmy award-winning TV show “Elbow Room,” set to work reviving a dark attic into an oasis that would allow the couple some much needed alone time apart from the children. With Wade’s creative vision in mind, he seamlessly flowed together an open-concept bedroom and bath area perfect for recharging.

THIS WALK AROUND SHOWER AND SOAKING TUB ADD A SPA-LIKE TOUCH TO THE OPEN-CONCEPT BEDROOM.

master suite! The lack of partitions makes the space feel larger and gives the room a romantic and modern spa feel. Wade began by opening up the cramped garret with a 40-foot dormer, which helped to make the almost 1,000-square-foot room feel light and airy. A sleek freestanding tub with chandelier overhead, and a walk around shower next to a water closet quickly became Mom and Dad’s favorite feature. Each element was crafted to be elegant when exposed or easily tucked away like the pop-up TVs located inside the moving footboards. Wade also added several custom touches like an oversized painted headboard by Atlanta muralist, Kristen Davis. In the end Wade explains, “This couple went from having zero privacy to a luxurious retreat totally separated from the kids. It’s a great place for them to unwind and find rejuvenation.”
