Aged Brick Wall, Thick Curtains Lend to Urban Feel in Townhome
Thinset mortar, paint and stain were used to artificially age the brick wall in this Atlanta townhome, giving it a more urban feel. The thick, extra long curtains may be drawn to completely block out the natural light, adding to the moody feel created by the warm interior lighting.
Wood Tones, Lighting Create Warm Contrast in Sleek, Industrial-Style Kitchen
A stained butcher block island creates a gathering place in the Atlanta townhome of a couple who loves to entertain. The wood, brass Bertoia-style barstools and Edison bulbs create warm contrasts to the black and gray finishes in the kitchen.
The design of this living room picks up the architecture's urban edginess—exposed beams, metal ducts—and incorporates them into the look. A spiral staircase leads between the two levels. The barstools and coffee table are metal, the sofa black leather with nailhead trim.
The owners of this Atlanta townhome often select artwork in their world travels. Here, black, white and metallic pieces help carry the home's color story into the living room. The scale of the artwork help ground the two-story space, making it feel more intimate.
The flat projection aluminum awning over this balcony makes the space feel like an additional room. A metallic coffee table is positioned between two gray barrel chairs and a reclaimed wooden bench, while a metal wire railing encloses the space.
The owners of this Atlanta townhome wanted a look that married their modern and steampunk style preferences. The steampunk look is especially prevalent in the eating nook, thanks to an ornate mirror frame that was painted black and a leather-covered love seat.
The owners of this Atlanta townhome wanted to blend their favorite design styles -- modern and steampunk. Modern elements like the abstract artwork and sleek club chair meet steampunk elements such as the tufted leather sofa, warm lighting and brassy accents. The moody color palette easily unites both styles.
