A Classicly Beautiful Renovation from an Atlanta “Dream Team”

From the entryway, guests can see the stair vestibule, octagonal dining room, and garden. Says Barbara Westbrook, designer and author of the new Rizzoli book Gracious Rooms, “I wanted to feature antiques that wouldn’t interrupt the view, such as the Italian Louis XIII walnut table and a pair of 19-century pedestals.”

Ambitious ideas, such as a striking rotunda like the one designed by Thomas Jefferson at the University of Virginia, defined the overarching vision for this 13,000- square-foot project in Georgia’s capital city. To translate such lofty concepts into comfortable living spaces, the homeowners already had architect Keith Summerour of Summerour and Associates on board. Now they had their minds set on one designer: Barbara Westbrook of Westbrook Interiors.

“The owners loved the look of the renovation at Old Edwards Inn, and Keith was responsible for that,” says Westbrook. “We handled the interior detailing for the luxury suites at the inn, and that look epitomized what these clients wanted for their new home.”
