A Gracious Home by Suzanne Kasler

{The large Great Room includes two distinct seating areas, which in combination with the informal textiles make the room feel effortless and inviting.}

I always enjoy seeing new work by my favorite designers, so naturally, I was excited to see this beautiful home designed by Suzanne Kasler in the new issue of Architectural Digest. Located in Atlanta's tony Buckhead neighborhood, the homeowners turned to Suzanne and architect, William T. Baker to bring this 17,000 square foot home to fruition. The family includes three children between the ages of 12 and 19 as well as two 200 lb. Bull Mastiffs, so the house needed to be beautiful, functional, and couldn't feel to formal or precious in order to work with the family's lifestyle. I'd love to see more of the house, but from what I can tell in these images, the mission was certainly accomplished.


{The furniture is slightly more formal in the dining room, but the paneled walls add a touch of relaxed elegance.}

{The kitchen island is reminiscent of farmhouse style and features many classic elements.}

{I love that Suzanne selected this Katie Ridder wallpaper for the powder bathroom. I am dying to use this in a client project. It comes in so many pretty colorways!}

{I love the dramatic vaulted ceilings in the master bedroom as well as the lighting choices-- table lamp by Christopher Spitzmiller, Austeil Floor Lamp and Chandelier by Suzanne Kasler for Visual Comfort. The bedding by Leontine Linens is especially beautiful.}


{While purple and lilac are not at the top of my list of favorite colors, I do like the "Violet Pearl" shade by Benjamin Moore that Suzanne selected for the master bathroom. It's subtle and it's taupe undertones look very pretty with the fittings throughout the space.}
{I love the antiqued mirrored tile used behind the vanity in the master bath. It's so glamorous!}


What is your favorite element of this home?

Can't decide if I like the industrial range hood in the kitchen or the aged mirror backsplash in the bathroom more!
