Part of the appeal of the Oliver Hospitality spaces is how they tap into the history of the space they occupy. The circa 1924 Clermont Hotel, located on a busy Atlanta street was reconceptualized by New York-based design firm Reunion Goods & Services. Director of interiors Laura Flam says the firm was inspired by design from the Gilded Age through the present, the classic Hollywood musical An American in Paris and "a mix of art and antiques from the last century. We wanted the place to feel like it had been added to by proprietors over the years."
Open Plan Kitchen and Living Room
Dark hardwood flooring runs from the kitchen, with a large marble island and seating for six guests, to the blue, transitional living room. The white painted fireplace features a floating, wooden mantel and is the focal point in the space, surrounded with leather chairs and a comfy sofa positioned for family gatherings.
Tasked with fitting a washer and two dryers into this slim laundry room, designer RaeLynn Callaway of Classically Yours Interiors had limited space to add storage. She configured the cabinets to make the most of every inch, including open niches for bins and baskets. She also paid special attention to aesthetics, with lively green paint and corner cabinets that house art and accents. "I have realized that if you have a 'happy' laundry room you have a happy laundry person," Callaway says. Fun colors, cabinet hardware, flooring patterns and decor can really make a difference."
Midcentury Ranch Home Atop Grassy Hill With Stone Slabs
This midcentury ranch home sits on top of a hill, thus minimizing the view of structural roof items that would normally be visible. A large expanse of grass is broken up by large stones as well as a walkway made from large stone slabs.
The newly renovated home ultimately met all the criteria of homeowners Bill and Jody, including a wonderful and welcoming front porch that's large enough to accommodate a dining table and swinging porch bed.
