During the dining room renovation, a blue Dutch door was installed on the main entrance to the backyard. One of the finishing touches on the home were the exterior steps connecting the space to the backyard.
Pennsylvania bluestone treads are placed over Tennessee dry stack fieldstone for these patio steps. The wall and wall caps also are made of Tennessee fieldstone selected by Atlanta-based King Landscaping.
Measure and mark the space where you will be hanging the grids. You can find metal or plastic grids at your local home decor or hardware store (we found ours at Ikea). Decide on how many you would like to use based on the size and space you have available.
This entry joyfully foreshadows what's in store for our journey through the Blehm family home. We're immediately introduced to the family's four central themes: a love of art, bold colors, custom solutions and the use of classic black and white.

Angela worked with a local carpenter to design the statement making red lacquered cabinet. The door style was inspired by Angela's favorite ceramic planter and is in perfect harmony with the iron pickets on the staircase to the left. It is clear the paintings and accessories were all intentionally chosen and placed. The relationships between shapes, finishes and even the primary colors create a beautifully balanced entry vignette
