This is a sort of second installment to the previous post where we ogled over designer Jimmy Stanton’s urban condo in Atlanta.
He and his partner also have a beautiful home in the Georgia countryside so there is even more of their gorgeous style to feast your eyes on.
Warm khaki-grey walls, harmonious blend of old and new, different shapes and textures… there are so many interesting things to look at, yet the overall feel is SO comfortable and homely.
The grouping of pressed botanicals set against black paper is fabulous and I love that the seat is not centered to the art wall… rebellious!
LOVE the old submarine ceiling lights!
They really have thought of everything in this beautiful home… there are even speakers wired into the tree trunks! *cue soft music in the air*
So if it was a choice between the condo in the previous post or this country home, which one would you pick?

For me, a charming space with personality will win hands down over marbled palatial grandness any day. All these kitchens of different styles have clearly been thoughtfully and lovingly designed, and feel very real (achievable), not to mention how very cute they look! Who’d have thought that even a mostly monochrome kitchen (last image) could look so darling?

Real rooms… beautiful rooms… rooms that are friends with IKEA…
Being in the business of affordable interior design, I am friends with IKEA so my IKEA-radar rarely fails to spot an IKEA item. Too much IKEA in one sentence? Sorry.
These cute rooms are from Stadshem, a Swedish real estate website. Browsing the site was the most delightful procrastination I have ever done, ogling at so much lovely Scandinavian design was utter joy and my IKEA-radar was totally tickled.
Can you spot the IKEA in these rooms?
These two kitchens are adorable, I would squeeze them if I could.
My projects vary vastly in budget (shoestring to gold nugget) and in style. The traditional period sitting room where I am working on dressing a window that is 180 inches wide x 108 inches high will not be getting any IKEA, but for more eclectic/contemporary homes, a little IKEA something is often the perfect fit – either for the wallet or the style or both. But let’s not liken IKEA to cheap… I mean, some of their rugs are priced at £1,329. Each. Uh huh.
I am also currently designing a sweet bijou apartment on a modest budget. My clients are all about the modern and the sleek, no frills. I am presently working up the chic-and-cosy bedroom scheme and IKEA has come to the rescue with their extensive choices and sizes for bedroom storage which rival bespoke fitted (expensive) options, and which look great too. Clients like me when I save them £££s.
just a work-in-progress, please don’t dissect it
If there is anyone who doesn’t love the phenomenon that is IKEA, please come and see me.
