No need to worry about the ball rolling into the street. This beautiful Atlanta home is located on Town Commons, a quiet cul-de-sac, so it has lots of space for kids to safely play and grown-ups to entertain.
With no place for a traditional home office, designer Scott Thomas was able to make room for a working space in this small condo kitchen. Floating shelves serve as storage and display area without taking up too much space.
As seen on Home Town, the existing exterior of the Carson house was lost on the street with plain white siding and few distinguishing features. After the renovations, their Laurel, MS house now features a new copper roof entry portico, cedar window boxes to highlight the painted blue wood windows, new wood shutters, and a fir wood door. Host Ben Napier custom built the new working blue wood shutters.
Removing the aged awning and opening up the porch made all the difference in helping restore the home's traditional Craftsman appeal. Other exterior enhancements included subtly offsetting the existing trim in a khaki-cream and painting the front door in blue for added punch.
A bright yellow door pops against a blue exterior while matching the classic louver shutters. A cobblestone walkway and granite steps lead to a large front deck perfect for entertaining neighbors and friends.
