The Klingshirn residence after the kitchen and living area renovation by licensed contractor Chip Wade in Atlanta, GA. The renovation included removing a number of walls to give the floor plan a circular and more open layout, but also respecting the era in which the house was built. The kitchen is outfitted with plenty of modern cabinets, new appliances, moveable kitchen cart and a coffered ceilings, as seen on HGTV and DIY Network's Elbow Room.
This unique home office provides an unobstructed view of the outdoor park by using glass to create the desk. The green Eames chair mixes perfectly with the modern design and blends in with the floor-to-ceiling window.
A dramatic entry to the garden features large native and tropical trees to help hide the view of the property from the street. Horizontal fencing, sculptural palms and large masses of tropical understory all help to create the sense of a lush, expansive entrance.
Beautiful flowering plants and manicured hedges surround the sophisticated crushed gravel patio and koi pond. Hand-stacked stone above the waterfall mimic architectural elements found in other parts of the garden.
Pattern and texture bring layers of interest to this small and functional home office, from the herringbone wood floors to the paneled accent wall. A red desk chair stands out as the main hit of color in the clean, modern space.
A small courtyard separates the driveway from the garden, with a circular entry that exudes serenity. Stone paths guide visitors around various trees and plants, with rocks along the way for sitting and reflecting.
