“Sophisticated, functional, and comfortable.” That’s how Amy Morris describes the home she designed for a young Atlanta family. “There are a lot of nice pieces, but they’re all very welcoming,” she says. The home, nestled in the centrally located Buckhead area of town, underwent an extensive renovation, including floor plan changes in some of the main spaces, such as the kitchen, office, and locker area.
Morris, who was introduced to the clients by the project architect, Brad Heppner, says her personal design philosophy played a large role in creating a balanced and cohesive home. “I love clean spaces, and I like to focus on a mix of masculine and feminine,” she says. “This client did want a slightly more masculine feel, so I played with scale to help achieve that.” The effect is perhaps most apparent in the furniture selections and light fixtures, which opt for dramatic over dainty in numerous rooms.
