British Country Meets 21st Century

Open through October 7, the Pinewood Forest Idea Home sponsored by Atlanta magazine is nestled in a community of design-forward homes situated close to the motion picture studio Pinewood Studios, half an hour from Atlanta. Focused on eco-friendly construction and a blend of old and new that mixes European home style and farmhouse and Georgian styles, Pinewood Forest is a 234-acre New Urbanism community that will eventually include 600 single family homes. The Atlanta area is already home to countless Hollywood film shoots and locally-shot TV shows (including Ozark, Stranger Things, Atlanta and The Walking Dead) and its rumored that at least one TV star is already calling Pinewood Forest home.

All About the Mix

A variety of materials and surfaces give this kitchen that opens to a stylish living room and dining room/study combination a cosmopolitan feel. Abstract art by local artists Todd Alexander and Joe Adams, animal hide rugs, natural wood, an Alexander Calder-esque light fixture and plenty of references to nature and culture make for a very smart mix. We especially love the detail of artwork leaning on the kitchen countertops for an effortless, urban look.

The Chic Life

A different take on the open living-kitchen concept, this utterly modern living room features a dramatic stone and hand-plastered fireplace, a curved black mohair sofa and vintage midcentury modern cocktail table, all in keeping with the modernist, organic, tribal, art-centric vision of the Pinewood Forest Idea Home.

Nature and Nurture

Window frames and doors and much of the decor in the Pinewood Forest Idea Home centers on a restful, elegant charcoal gray that works beautifully with the mix of vintage and contemporary art and furniture that blends thoughtful heirloom pieces and new design.

Ultra Modern Kitchen

More like the kind of chic, elegant kitchen you'd find in a Manhattan loft, this stunning kitchen from Dana Lynch Design features Keystone Millworks cabinets with a cerused finish and tall glass-front cabinets that give this space the feel of a culinary jewel box.

A Dining Room With a Difference

As more and more homeowners abandon the notion of the dedicated dining room, designers are coming up with clever new ways to make this space multipurpose and suitable for daily life (not just special occasions). This dining room by Dana Lynch Design could do double duty as a home office, homework station or simply living room party overflow. A chandelier from Circa lighting offers a little mod attitude within a space defined by twin etageres, a vintage dining table and Milo Baughman chairs.

Nature Lover

A large mushroom mural in the library-like dining room and details like animal skulls, books and art create a very painterly, refined sensibility, like a still life in a classic oil painting.

A Savvy Scullery

With a sink, ice maker and beverage center, this hallway scullery between the living area/kitchen and the outside covered patio is a great place for company to grab a cocktail or for a hostess to keep supplies close at hand.

Crafty Alcove

We love the inspired detail of this "drop zone" from designer Breckyn Alexander where coats, backpacks and other items can be dropped. An oversized drawer beneath keeps clutter in check. Add a few more pillows and the space, with its pretty brass lights, would be the perfect reading nook to hide away on a rainy day with a good book.

Powerhouse Powder

Designer Breckyn Alexander made a stunning custom limestone sink the centerpiece of this downstairs powder room. A contemporary work by Hannah Betzel and a vintage rug add a touch of luxury to the space.

Master on Main

Atlanta designer Nikie Barfield's light, fresh master suite features an oversized fiddleleaf fig in an artisanal container, a charming swarm of butterflies flanking the linen upholstered headboard and custom night stands.

Airy Escape

Sliding barn doors lead to the master bathroom where artwork cleverly screens the glass front water closet. Brass gallery-style lighting, a contemporary sculpture and "wavy" cabinetry all add up to a very sophisticated look.

High Art Moment

Gray barn doors lead to an elegant, artful view in the master suite.

Luxe Laundry

Tucked into a dedicated room right outside the master suite, this tailored, tidy laundry features quartz countertops and nicely concealed open shelving behind this curtain.

Bunk Mates

Could anything be cozier, but also cuter than this ultra-charming child's bedroom with four bunk beds for sleepovers, a comforting palette of navy wall paint and a use of hides and antlers and other natural world details to tie even this child's room with the organic theme of the rest of the home.

Fan Fare

A wall of Star Wars characters painted in the style of historic Flemish oil paintings lends a cheeky-and-fun vibe to this very witty child's suite from designer Dana Lynch.

Functional Stairway

This ingenious use of space in the child's bedroom employs steps leading to the two bunkbeds as a handy spot for housing a child's favorite possessions.

Vintage Touches

Vintage trophies for toothbrushes and other grooming supplies sit on a custom concrete sink in this bathroom filled with clever details. Designer Dana Lynch used hide-covered milking stools and antlers for ball caps to add to the whimsical, charmingly retro feel of this boys' bath.

Stylish Sanctuary

An antique daybed is enveloped with a gorgeous, lush custom canopy made even more glamorous with the addition of an oversized beaded chandelier.

Exotic Retreat

Designers Elle + Vreeland used a sophisticated blend of contemporary art, exotic touches like these hide-covered campaign chairs and a Chinoiserie wall covering to give an unexpected polish to a small guest bedroom.

Spa Bath

The second floor spa bath features limestone walls, textured pebble floors and a floating concrete sink to give a blend of industrial chic and an aristocratic Italian villa mood.

Worldly Office

Atlanta designer Jason Mitchell created a global, elegant feel in his upstairs office with large panels depicting herons that really announces the importance of nature in this space. Roman shades in a material that resembles wood bark and a tree stump table continue that organic mood.

Meet and Greet

Designer Jason Mitchell's second floor office features this "meeting" area dominated by a striking, sculptural marble-topped table with cast bronze base great for a desk or conference table and a curved settee and two Charles Rennie Mackintosh chairs. Adding to the chic, modern ambiance, is an abstract work by William Stoehr.

"Bomoco" Style

Atlanta designer Julie Holloway calls her signature style "bomoco" for its blend of bohemian, modern and country. There are plenty of design tips to incorporate into your own space, from the soft pastels of an Oriental rug that soften the seagrass rug underneath (and dispense with the need for a rug pad) to the whimsical art dead-center above the headboard to the imaginative mix of old and new in the acrylic chair combined with a rustic wooden desk used as a nightstand here.

Landscape Gallery

Designer Julie Holloway showcases a collection of vintage art—both elaborately framed and unframed—to create an interesting visual mix.

Big Blooms

Designer Julie Holloway brings a bold, rich look to the second floor bedroom bath with this romantic wall covering that, along with the bamboo blinds, continues the story of "nature" that reoccurs throughout this idea home.

Life's a Breeze (Way)

An old English wattle fence gives an Old World country spin to this lovely Pinewood Forest Idea Home blending old and new. A breezeway connects the main house from the "tower" guest suite on the left.

The Power of a Tower

Though the Pinewood Forest Idea Home's footprint is modest, with outdoor space limited to a "green" rooftop, a covered patio, curated outdoor space and tower balcony, the clever design including the soaring, stand-alone tower gives the home a grand, fortress-like effect.

Open Invitation

The main room of the tower guest suite includes the thoughtful addition of a wet bar with sink and compact fridge so guests can help themselves to snacks or mix up a cocktail.

Tower Escape

Separated by a breezeway and outdoor patio, the two-level tower that adjoins the Pinewood Forest Idea Home by Atlanta designer Sherry Hart suggests a hip grotto custom-made for a visiting artist or a cool getaway for the teenagers of the family. A space-saving spiral staircase leads to the upstairs bedroom.

Modernist Style

Atlanta designer Sherry Hart created a fresh, modern feel on the tower's main level with some mid-century modern style pieces like this wood-base side table and a graphic leafy motif on wallpaper and abstract works by artists Blayne Beacham Macauley and Joe Adams.

Upstairs Atelier

The upstairs room (perfect for a private, cozy bedroom) of the tower features a graphic Circa light fixture, a wall ornamented with antique baskets-as-art and wicker chairs, a sisal rug and teak bench to echo the rustic, natural look of the room.

Industrial Cool Bath

Black reclaimed floors, a clever elongated tile with dark grout and a concrete vanity all add up to an industrial vibe in the tower guest bath that doesn't sacrifice warmth at the altar of cool.

Creativity Rules Covered Patio

Durable concrete pavers, a custom dining set with a planter trough running down the center, outdoor art by Kim Chesney and graphic, cool wicker chairs give a chic, international attitude to this outdoor space.

Edited Outdoors

Who needs a big yard with a beautiful park and lake across the street? Instead, this Pinewood Forest Idea Home features a clever, mini-English garden with camellias, peonies and a rustic obelisk in the distance.
