Serene living space with white walls,  linen daybeds, and antique accents in the pied-à-terre of architect Bill Ingram.

When architect Bill Ingram was searching for a pied-à-terre in Atlanta, he sought a contrast with the countryside of his home in Alabama. He found an apartment in the modernist Colony Square apartment building, in a collected flat that sits high above the bustle of Midtown. Though the setting may be busy, the apartment feels like a quiet retreat with its large windows and neutral palette. Elegant shapes and sophisticated accents grace the simple living spaces in the flat, and you can find his traditional-elegant style infused throughout this inner-city getaway.

I think the casual dining area above is beautiful – the graceful curves of the silp-covered benches complement the table beautifully, and the Greek-key trim adds a classical reference and a bit of warmth to the space. I’m also in love with simple addition of the candle wall sconce above the table – it adds a simple yet ornate gesture to the vignette.

This intimate dining nook contrasts the rest of the apartment with the use of dark grey, but it feels very romantic, don’t you think?

  2. That dining nook would double as a killer/comfy home office.
