The residence designed by Kerry Howard features views of several iconic Atlanta institutions, among them the Coca-Cola headquarters, CNN and the Georgia Aquarium. So, with a nod to southern hospitality, Howard built upon the local landmarks that surround his space by incorporating a mural of Scarlett O’Hara, meant to look like it was painted on the side of a building.
Using furnishings from Redefined Home Boutique, Howard created a residence envisioned as a home for a young female professional who believes less is more and likes to mix the past with modern elements. A traditional pedestal in the corner, for instance, holds a modern sculpture. In the bedroom, the shape of the bed is traditional but on either side are contemporary alabaster lamps. A magnolia-print bedspread in the bedroom also alludes to Southern style but there are plenty of pink accents throughout the residence—including a candy-colored glass chandelier—that add a decidedly feminine touch. And because no Southern home is complete without a place to entertain family and friends, an expansive dining table provides the perfect place for guests to gather.
