An Atlanta Home with a Subdued Sense of Color

With 7-year-old triplets running around, the homeowners craved stylish yet durable décor. “They wanted something that would be a fresh reflection of their lifestyle with very open, clean spaces,” McBrearty says. “And they wanted a more subdued palette that still made an impact.”

One standout hue is the silvery sage that graces a number of upholstery pieces, including a plush bench at the foot of the master bed, a pair of armchairs flanking the living room fireplace, and a button-tufted Chesterfield in the study. Though McBrearty was careful to keep the overall hues subtle, she wasn’t shy about selecting statement-making artwork, much of it by contemporary Texas artists. The designer also gave special attention to lighting fixtures—one of her definitive hallmarks—as seen in an Art Deco-inspired Paul Ferrante fixture that appears to be more illuminated sculpture than functional apparatus.
