Family Time

Designer Morgan Boszilkov and her two children Beckett and Vivienne hang out in their cozy, Scandi-chic nook off of the family's open kitchen. The Boszilkov-Lindsey family live in a 4,300 square foot Cape Dutch-style home in the sustainable Serenbe community outside Atlanta. Morgan is an artist and designer whose creative eye played a big part in designing this stunning family home. Her handcrafted clay tiles and both her and her husband Scott Lindsey's artwork can be seen throughout the home.

Dining In, Looking Out

Every room in the Boszilkov-Lindsey home seems to offer a more spectacular view than the last. A dining room table found at an Atlanta antique show is complemented by pieces from West Elm and Restoration Hardware.

House Within a House

The open kitchen and living room offer a view to a third-level loft where the roof-like peak of the ceiling creates the feeling of a home within a home.

Flooded With Light

The Boszilkov-Lindsey home has the feel of a sanctuary nestled in the trees. The main entrance is on the second level, which gives a protected, fortress-like feel to the 4,300 square foot space. The home sits on a corner lot facing a forest, which affords the family even more privacy.

Scandi Vibes

The prevalence of wood, on the dramatic staircase and the found wood table give the Boszilkov-Lindsey home an on-trend Scandinavian-meets-bohemian vibe.

Bright Idea

What better way to enliven a mundane task like washing, folding and ironing than a brightly colored laundry room? The family chose a punchy minty-green to accent their hidden-away first-floor laundry area.

Love of Art

Clown portraits by Morgan's mother in an upstairs hallway alcove are part of the eclectic, charming and very personal aesthetic that defines the home.

Guest Bath

Morgan's gorgeous handmade arabesque tile coupled with a metal pendant light in the guest bathroom give the space a global sensibility.

Cozy Charm

Bunkbeds for guests or just a cozy place to read are hidden behind curtains in the upstairs hallway. A wide drawer below is a handy place to stash toys.`

Homespun Touches

A vintage quilt makes a beautiful wall hanging in lieu of artwork in Vivienne's room.

Clean Lines

Though the home veers toward the minimalist, details like vintage quilts and soft sheepskin throws keep things cozy. Wooden interior shutters are a great way of keeping light out when needed, while respecting the home's clean lines.

Rest Room

Natural elements are a big feature of the Boszilkov-Lindsey home, from wood cabinets and shelves in this stunning bathroom, to spectacular views of the woods beyond. Small round his-and-her mirrors are a clever way to circumvent the windows. The master bathroom also features a sauna, whose door can be seen on the left.

Let the Light In

Large windows flood the home with light, and the emphasis on light-colored furnishings and natural wood — as in this master bedroom — lend a relaxing, organic, retreat-like feel to the entire home.

Good Mix

Vintage elements like a metal card catalogue and wooden flat file blend well with more contemporary elements in the home thanks to an edited approach to design.

Plunge Pool in the Trees

The second level patio right outside the kitchen and living area of the home features a limestone fireplace and an incredible view of the forest beyond.

Prime Time Patio

Directly outside the kitchen and living area of the Boszilkov-Lindsey home, the patio features a large daybed swing, teak furniture and an outdoor fireplace featuring tiles made by Morgan.

Office Space

Morgan has a ground floor art studio where she made the beautiful arabesque tiles found on the outdoor fireplace, in the family's kitchen and in the third-level guest bathroom. Many Serenbe residents use a room to support a home-based business. Morgan teaches pottery classes in her studio but other Serenbe residents offer massage or skincare services from their homes in this vibrant live-work community.

Raised Bed Garden

The ground floor level of the home features a compact but efficient raised bed garden right outside Morgan's art studio entrance. A center raised bed is surrounded by built-in, narrow beds perfect for trellising vegetables to make use of vertical space.
