Modern in Midtown

Several of our Serenbe neighbors also have homes in Atlanta (ITP).  Meet the Olsens, a busy family of four.  Jeff (Dad) has a creative gig in Atlanta and Monica (Mom) runs marketing for Serenbe.  So if anybody needs to be in both places, it's the Olsens.

For their Atlanta home, they chose a modern townhouse in Midtown.  They needed something easy, comfortable and family friendly without sacrificing style.  We worked with them to furnish the space with modern ease.

A modern, minimalist vibe needs quality furnishings to work.  For the living room, two large grey flannel sofas anchor the space and a traditional rug from Moattar gives the house a sense of gravitas and history.  The oversized Random Light pendant by Bertjan Pot for Moooi is both subtle and impactful. 

The coffee table centered between the sofas is an elegant and easy piece from Bungalow Classic.

All of the floors and wood details were finished to a matte blonde to create a fresh and bright feeling throughout.   The light wood plays nicely off the marble waterfall island.   Counter stools are Charles and Ray Eames for Herman Miller.

The dining room boasts a Moooi Heracleum Endless pendant and teak chairs by Kai Kristiansen for K.S.  Mobler of Denmark.  The Olsens found the chairs antiquing when they lived in San Francisco.

The kids' rooms are playful and stylish.   One of the rooms has Miles Redd for Schumacher wallpaper on the ceiling paired with a George Nelson Crisscross Saucer pendant.

... and if that's not fun enough, we hung a swinging chair by Serena and Lily from the ceiling :)
