CHATTANOOGA WEEKEND CITY GUIDE: 72 HOURS IN SCENIC CITY

Read House Hotel glamorous lobby design in Chattanooga city guide weekend tour on Thou Swell #chattanooga #chattanoogaguide #cityguide #travelguide #travel width=Read House

Just under two hours away, Chattanooga is a perfect getaway from Atlanta and is a great size for exploring over a weekend. I got to discover “Scenic City” for the first time this month and loved the historic charm of the architecture, the delicious food, and their fun aquarium. I discovered a handful of cool neighborhoods with local boutiques and coffeehouses. My boyfriend and I drove up on Friday and stayed in the Roaring-20’s-inspired Read House hotel, which is in a beautiful historic building conversion. The hotel had a fun, glamorous design as you can see in the lobby above. See how we spent our weekend and all my favorite shops and restaurants below!

I haven’t yet introduced Terrace Drive project, but it’s a pretty special project to me because it’s my boyfriend Murphy’s cute apartment in Peachtree Hills. It’s the basement unit of a house so the space is very unique – lots of sweet nooks and crannies – but the space is pretty small and the ceilings are low. I am so excited to tackle Murphy’s place because it’s a bit of a challenge, and those always bring out my creativity! I’m sharing a design board for the bedroom design, which I’m completing with the help of some sleek mid-century inspired decor from AllModern. I love sourcing accent furniture and home decor from AllModern because they have a well-curated selection. See what I chose for this space below.

WEST ELM EVOKES BOHO LUXURY WITH ITS SPRING COLLECTION

Boho luxe furniture from west elm's spring collection 2021 on Thou Swell #westelm #bohostyle #bohodecor #boholuxe #moderndesign #homedecorideas #homedesign(Marin Sofa, Ida Wicker Screen)

Shot in the Hamptons home of designer and lifestyle guru Athena Calderone, west elm’s “boho luxe” spring collection is full of natural finishes, organic lines, and subtle textures. It’s very laid-back, an extension of the “retreat” philosophy of home design during COVID-times. Calderone’s house served as a perfect backdrop for this collection, with light-filled living spaces and off-white plaster walls blending perfectly with all of the wood and wicker details in these pieces. It’s still west elm’s clean modern design, but a little softened and very livable. Take a look through these beautiful rooms below!

ART-DECO INFLUENCES IN A HISTORIC ANSLEY PARK HOME RENOVATION

Formal dining room in Ansley Park, Atlanta home tour renovation by Melanie Turner and Yong Pak classical family home with modern Art-Deco influences on Thou Swell #hometour #homedesign #atlanta #atlantahomes #southernhome #traditionalhome #artdeco #homedecor #homedecorideas #interiordesign #interiordesigner #designerhome(via Veranda, photography by Mali Azima)

Designer Melanie Turner and architect Yong Pak teamed up to carefully gut-renovate a 100-year-old home in Ansley Park. After years of updates (and even an apartment conversion at one point) the home needed a sensitive makeover, honoring its history while updating the interiors for a young family. After over four years of work, the result is an Art-Deco-influenced modern take on a classical home. The renovation features a French-style salon, plaster architectural details, beautiful iron windows, and luxe parquet and tile floors throughout. Take a spin inside this stunning Atlanta home tour below.

WILLIAMS PROJECT: POWDER ROOM UPDATE WITH THE GOLD PARABOLA FAUCET

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of House of Rohl. All opinions are 100% mine. Riobel brushed gold Parabola faucet by House of Rohl in powder room bathroom design on Thou Swell #bathroom #powderroom #powderbath #bathroomdesign #goldfaucet #sinkfaucet #homedesign #bathroomideas #renovation #houseofrohl

Project by: Kevin Francis Design

The Riobel brushed gold Parabola faucet and Victoria + Albert Kaldera sink have been installed in the Williams Project powder bathroom and it already looks amazing in here! I started the design process with these elegant fixtures from House of Rohl and love how special they have already made the space. The combination of the navy vanity and gold faucet is so handsome, and I love how the rectangular basin sink adds a contemporary update from the curved basin before. See how the design is starting to come together below!
