AROUND MY HOME: TRAVIS NUNN

I asked our good friend Travis Nunn (Jacobs BFF) if he would take some photo's of his Atlanta house so that I could share on the blog. This boy...I mean...ahem.. man has amazing home decor style. He doesn't need a lady to decorate his house at all....it's already awesome. Am I right or am I right? See for yourself.

This is what Travis said....

My favorite piece in the house would have to be my dining table. I found it, in many different pieces, in a local antique shop. The shop owner bought up the inventory of a furniture company as it was going out business; I rummaged through the bits and found similar parts and bought them. Soon after I bought the table pieces I met a local woodworker/furniture maker and he took what I had and made it into one cohesive idea. He assembled, sanded, stained, and roughed- up the wood, creating the vintage French Farm table I have now. The French cafe chairs are from a local metal worker who builds replicas of famous pieces.

The dining room pendants are from an old factory, re-purposed into modern fixtures.

I love old transit signage, such as metal street signs and bus route scrolls. The two I have in the dining room are from the late 70's. They were pulled out of a Ralph Lauren shop in California.

The living room sofa and leather chair are from Crate & Barrel ( Brandi wanted this green chair!) . The coffee table is an original 1920's factory cart, and the cowhide rug is from a local mid-century modern furniture shop.

The resin stag's head in the bathroom was a gift from a shop owner here in the ATL.

I love rustic, antique, eclectic, machine-like things.... So most of what's in my home is of that persuasion. Everything has a story.

Cheers,

Saying that he doesn't 'need a lady' to decorate his house is inherently sexist. Also, PHOTOS not PHOTO'S. The pictures don't own anything so don't use the possessive

Did your sister help you out on some of the layout..fantastical..nice colour..cozy yet refined.You need a sign that says.You Are Here with a star....

suzy said...

disbelief. this isn't intended to be rude but...are you sure that guy's a guy? i mean, if my husband decorated our house it would just be bean bag chairs and band posters and empty monster cans everywhere.

suzy said...

cbaker said...

Where are the drums??!! :( hehe... was hoping to see a little home studio or something.

Nice pad, though. I guess he's probably not home enough to warrant a home drum studio
