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.
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.
