Art House

Jamie Steele is an artist and curator who lives in a charming Atlanta bungalow in the Peachtree Hills neighborhood of Buckhead. Her home also features an art gallery, Camayuhs, where she curates exhibitions of artists from Atlanta and around the country.

Sexy Study

"I don't know what my home style is" says Steele. "I like fun and different and colorful." Her study in the front of the house is defined by her eclectic sense of style, with wood paneling brought into the 21st century with chic black paint and a mix of colorful pillows, leopard print and a few hot pink items illustrating Jamie's love of color.

Jaw-Dropping Kitchen

The most memorable design feature of curator and artist Jamie Steele's Atlanta bungalow may be her stunning open kitchen. Flanked by Moroccan metal planters and vintage wall sconces, the kitchen is defined by a large island, mixed metals, oak-pickled cabinets, marble countertops amd beveled Carrara marble subway tile on the walls Steele sourced from the Habitat for Humanity Atlanta Habitat ReStore.

Front and Center

Making the most of a large room front and center when you enter through the front door, Steele turned it into a sitting room. Some of her extensive art collection is featured, including a work by Sarah West above the white console and a painting by Padma Rajendran above the fireplace. Her entire home has been a work in progress. The previous homeowner neglected the space, giving it over to his pets and allowing the home to fall into serious disrepair. Steele has opened the home up, added an upstairs addition, a sunroom with raised ceiling and has infused it with light and a distinctly feminine touch that blends modern elements and her unique point of view.

Kitty Decor

Steele added the sheepskin throws to the gold mesh chairs in her kitchen to keep her cat from falling through. More than one design feature in Steele's home was masterminded with her kitty in mind including windowsills made extra wide to accommodate her cat's perching.

Master Suite Bath

The upstairs master bedroom leads to a dressing area and a large marble bath where exotic touches like brightly colored baskets and unique vanity mirrors imbue the space with personality and a touch of the exotic.

Artful Mix

Steele now considers the black sofa in her boho-chic study a mistake considering her tabby cat's shedding. But it's hard to argue with the stylish mix of jewel tones, black walls (and couch), animal prints (a favorite Steele design motif) and black and white printed curtains. The gold flag artwork is by Natalie Baxter.

A Well-Appointed Cat (and Human) Haven

Steele's cat has the run of her charming 1910 Atlanta bungalow and has even had design features added for his needs including widened window sills for cat naps and hours spent birdwatching, and carpeting that isn't too looped to hinder scratching snafus and a pattern that hides accidents.

Bar None

Steele's chic and functional bar features a soft gun sculpture from artist Natalie Baxter and the inspired touch of a chandelier for a dose of elegance amidst all of the quirk.

In-House Gallery

An artist herself and alum of the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, Jamie Steele has created a way to support art and artists with a spacious gallery Camayuhs, she maintains in her home. Her focus is on group shows of artists from Atlanta and across the country, often spotlighting female artists.

Double Duty Headboard

Steele repurposed a screen she once used to break up space in her New York loft into a headboard in her Atlanta bedroom.

Statement Light

The ornate metal light fixture in Steele's bedroom adds attitude to the room and helps pull together the global feel of the master.

Artful Objects

Homeowner Jamie Steele brings an artist's eye to her arrangement of objects in her home, keeping things pared back and simple so you can really focus on the details.

Don't Overthink It

White walls make Steele's home feel bright and airy and allow the furnishings and artworks—like this fabric piece on panel by Addoley Dzegede—to pop.

Keep It Simple

Steele's home is illustration that you don't need to pile on the objects to show your personality. With a mix of vintage items, idiosyncratic artwork and judicious editing, this artist has made a space that feels both chic and clutter-free.

Jungle-Chic Guest Bath

A bold wallpaper and ornate gold-framed mirror endow this guest bath with major personality.

Room With a View

A railing in the kitchen level of the home allows a view down into Steele's bright, colorful combined living room and dining area.

Beer Pong Dining Table

A former art project made by Steele—a beer pong-purposed table—has morphed into an attitudinal dining table in her home.

Hand-Me-Down Hip

Many of the pieces in Steele's home are inherited from her family. Steele has given these living room heirlooms her own unique spin with a palette of neon brights.

Open Staircase

The open metal and wood handrail leading to the upstairs master keeps things light and bright.

Stellar Staircase

Steele chose the high-end looking carpet for its lack of deep loop, which makes it more cat-friendly and a pattern that hides the inevitable pet accidents. The metal and wood banister adds a modern, airy touch to this 1910 bungalow.

World Beat

The home's cosmopolitan, eclectic feel is amplified with details like the bamboo mirror in the master, flanked by etched metal lamps and lattice detail on the vintage dresser.

Symphony in Marble
