Fresh Face Lift

Atlanta-based Terracotta Design Build transformed a dated ranch into a midcentury-modern beauty. The exterior renovation of the home includes a pop of bright turquoise on the door and natural wood panels on the side of the carport. The team left the front stoop in natural red brick to give relief from all of the white paint of the home.

Family Heirloom

This ranch in the posh Buckhead neighborhood of Atlanta is a family heirloom inherited by the current homeowners. The couple’s love of the area and the history of the home led them to the decision to renovate the ranch. The Terracotta team were able to deliver everything the couple wanted: larger doors and windows, more closets and to create an open floor plan—all with a modern, glam style.

Open Kitchen

The design team opened up the kitchen by removing some walls and extending the cabinetry. The pop of blue adds interest in the kitchen. Beautiful Ann Sacks mosaic tile is on the backsplash and extends all the way to the ceiling. The black sconces above the windows add a pop of contrasting color to the primarily white and blue kitchen.

Creative Storage

On the opposite side of the kitchen, the team removed the wall that separated the kitchen from the living room. The island extends into the living space, offering a small eating area. The island also provides additional storage including a pantry, hidden microwave and a bookcase to house a collection of the homeowner’s cookbooks.

Vaulted Ceilings

In the living area, the Terracotta team vaulted the ceilings to create an open feel throughout the home. The ceiling beams are necessary for structural constraints, but the team effectively incorporated them into the design. The beams offer architectural interest to the space.

Inviting Living Space

The team modernized the fireplace surround to accent the beams in the ceiling. Originally, it was traditional brick surround. Modern sconces were added to flank the television. The living space includes a leather sofa to add warmth, a little metal chair for whimsy (and extra seating without visually taking up a lot of space) and a mod acrylic coffee table.

Collected Details

The couple have several fun accessories that they wanted to display. The pillows are very collected, not matchy-matchy. Everything was pulled together to show their personality.

Eclectic Mix

The Terracotta team added more beams to keep the repetition and balance throughout the space. Keeping things fun and playful in the dining area, the team added color with the red chairs, a midcentury table, and incorporated usual candlesticks that were a wedding gift to the couple. Also showcased is one of the couple's collected art pieces from their travels.

Rustic Glam

The home office is a mix of modern and rustic style. The room had an exposed brick wall that the team decided to keep in the design for texture and interest. The ceiling was vaulted in here as well, but with a warm, natural wood beam to play off of the rustic feel of the room.

Small but Luxurious

The master bath is very small, but the Terracotta team was able to work their design magic. They tore out the existing vanity and had a new custom one built that was a dresser style. In the shower, Ann Sacks glass tile was laid out vertically to highlight the beauty of the tile and to elongate the space. The mix of textures in the master bath was another way to offer luxury yet still have a bit of fun.

Soft Retreat

The master bedroom has a rustic-meets-glam style. The room features a beautiful feminine chandelier and polished nickel sconces on the wall juxtaposed with the rustic texture of the rug, artwork and the wood in the dresser.
