The historic, but slightly long-in-the-tooth Clermont Hotel situated on Atlanta's busy Ponce de Leon Avenue had seen better days. But it had a lot going for it including a very popular terrace level Clermont Lounge, a one-of-a-kind strip club where celebrities including Bill Murray, Woody Harrelson and Robert De Niro had stopped by when filming in town. The historic preservation experts at Oliver Hospitality, based in Nashville, have made revitalizing beautiful old buildings and smart design part of their mantra. Hotels and restaurants have all been resuscitated by the group, in cities from Atlanta to Nashville to Knoxville. Leaving the beloved local dive the Clermont Lounge intact, but re-doing the Clermont Hotel with an emphasis on retro style has transformed this space into a hipster locus.
The owners of this traditional, coastal home requested a lounge-style dining area with views to the ocean.

Hues of aqua, coral and sand tie this wide open, traditional great room to its coastal setting, while broad windows usher in loads of natural light and literally bring the outdoors in. The two-story central space delineates the dining area while giving the entire living-dining-kitchen area an open, airy feel. An oversized dining table and lounge-style seating encourages lingering over the table for relaxing, leisurely conversation.
Natural sea-inspired art prints, air plants and that amazing juju hat (a favorite!) were our art feature wall in the space. The TV is there but it's not a feature of the room, just a part of it. Italian leather chairs and the low media center with the large midcentury lamp give this room a cool lounge feel. It makes me want to put a record on and make a gin & tonic with extra lime.
Plenty of natural light enters this elegant teen's lounge that converts to a bedroom. To control the light that enters the space, designers added dual layered curtains, creating a fun look while adding more privacy and control over the space's lighting. The first layer of curtain is a Roman Shade that blocks most of the sun, while an airy second layer softens the space and the light that filters through it.
A bight red, orange and yellow stained glass figure hangs above this sitting room for a bold, eye catching conversation piece. Below it the dark color scheme of the room creates a soothing, lounge environment, a nice contrast to the bright connected room. Black leather chairs with diamond pattern finish face into a coffee table with a full bar set up on the wall behind them.
