when opened my last issue of atlanta homes and lifestyles magazine, i was immediately taken with a spread on an alabama lake house designed by bobby mcalpine and susan ferrier. the interiors have a rustic, luxe warmth that is accentuated with industrial touches and textural elements that had me wishing there were a dozen more pages in the feature.
the horizontal planking on the walls adds a texture and warmth that contrasts dramatically with the
soft, solid upholstery and white linen window treatments.
i love the huge scale of the art above the fireplace and the metal light fixture.
simple, sculptural chairs and furnishings keep this room modern and classy...notice the art hanging on the
the leather benches and cowhide stools provide lots of seating in the kitchen. (my kids would have those chairs stained in SECONDS, but aren't they pretty?)
one other thing that i love about the room is the botanical collection that is hung floor to ceiling.
framed botanicals have a very traditional feel to them, the the monochromatic look and the way they are displayed keep them feeling edgy and fresh.
i could get some goooood sleep here. (love those dark ceilings...)
this is such an untraditional floor plan for a bathroom...the corner windows and large cylinder floor lamp are so interesting. and the fact that a rough hewn wood was used for the vanities, definitely lends itself to that lodgey feel...but a very updated and modern lodgey feel.
did you have a favorite space in this house? if i had to pick one, it would be this lounge area...i seriously let out an audible sigh when i saw this picture. how great would it be to curl up here with a book?
