The 2010 Southern Living Georgia Idea House: Part Two

Today I want to show you some of the pretties from the bedroom level.  The three bedrooms of this home are on the third floor.  The rooms were all fairly large, but the closets were pretty small.  I don’t know about you, but I guess I’ve just got too much stuff!  Closets are one of the first things I check out when I look at houses.

Here we go:

On the front side of the home was a brightly colored kid’s room.  The colors were so vibrant, and not colors that I would ordinarily envision going together.  The whole room was so fun though.

Here is the bed. Aren’t all those pillows great!

The bed drapes

Great lampshade

Great room, don’t you think.  The colors were all so vibrant.  I can picture any 10 year old girl living happily ever after there.

Adjoining this bedroom was a bathroom that went through to the next bedroom.  The only picture I took of the bathroom was this great shower drain.  (Weird I know). The showers throughout the home all had this type of drain.  Are these something new?  I have never seen any other drains like these, but I really loved them.

Coolest shower drain ever

Okay next…through the bathroom was another bedroom.  This bedroom was set up as a nursery.  There were some great hand painted murals on the wall that flowed up on to the ceiling.

Look how this tree 'grows' right up on to the ceiling.

Love the monkey!

Basket style lighting

Look at the great tufting detail on this chair.

Here’s a picture of the whole room:

Next up was the master suite.  Measurement wise it was not a small room.  The bedroom really didn’t feel quite large enough to me, but there was a lot of furniture in there.  The colors were perfect: taupe, brown, & teal.  I’ve got to tell you though, my favorite part of the master area was the tub.  Yep, I’m a tub gal.

Look at this GORGEOUS tub!

There was even a built in ledge behind the tub for all of the lotions & potions.

Detail of the underside, notice the button tufting

This is the coffee table that was in the sitting area of the master.  I’ve seen this type of stand many times before, but usually these stands hold metal trays.  I really like the softness and organic quality of the basket.


From the master bedroom you go back out into the hallway.  Even the hall is pretty.

The laundry room is on this floor too.

Laundry room, great drying racks!

Lastly, here is a close up of the gorgeous wallpaper from the hallway and stairwell.

So pretty

I hope you’re getting a peek at some the fabulous light fixtures.  Many of them were handmade by an artisan from Sandy Springs, GA.  They are re-purposed from antique gas lights.

In the next post I’ll show you the main entry level, that has the living room, dining room, kitchen, keeping room, & great porch.  Until next time….
