Decatur is known for its distinct, historic neighborhoods, eclectic food, and vibrant downtown: it is not known for log cabins. My clients are the owners of this unlikely urban retreat and wanted to design a space that provided a TV-free zone to read, relax, eat, and play games as a family. This little reading nook is my favorite vignette. It is my client's favorite spot in the house. She has her morning coffee there daily. The chair was hers but the shelves were added to have storage and interest go up the wall and showcase their family pictures and items I sourced in flea markets all over Atlanta! The pouf and blanket were "must haves" from the very beginning.
