How do you make a 9,000-square-foot home on a 5-acre lot feel warm and welcoming? It may sound like a trick question, but the answer is short and sweet—lots of layers and plenty of natural light.
“The homeowners’ first priority was comfort,” says interior designer Beth Meyer, who collaborated with Chad Goehring of Harrison Design to complete the Mableton, Georgia, home. “They are an active family that loves to entertain and often hosts large parties. So they wanted a series of spacious rooms that could accommodate a crowd yet retain a sense of intimacy, all while capturing their love of Tuscan design.” The owners illustrated their vision by providing designer and architect with inspirational photos from their travels across Italy.
