Dear <<First Name>>,

The holiday season is here, which usually signifies office parties, special school events and family get-togethers. Many families celebrate Thanksgiving Day around the dinner table enjoying a feast with family and friends. As that special day approaches, we encourage you, amidst the hustle and activity, purpose to remember all the wonderful things you have to be thankful for this year.

For us, this list would certainly include the privilege of working on the extraordinary Lake House. This month we present our final episode of this stunning project. You will enter the terrace-level and be delighted by the beauty that meets your eye.

As you attend your holiday functions, what attire will you choose, and will you be able to find those garments in your closet? We are passing on some ideas for crafting your ideal closet that is both functional and stylish.

Thank you to all our clients, partners and team members, may you have a joyous Thanksgiving!

Marietta Lake House Transformed | Part 4:
The Finale

Terrace-Level Interior

The past several issues of our HOMEStyles Online eNewsletter have featured a stunning lake house project Atlanta Design & Build recently completed. First, we focused on the dock and boathouse, and then on the home exteriorPart 3 gave you the pleasure of roaming inside the fabulous upper level of the home. We conclude the series this month as we venture inside the terrace-level to share its incredible design metamorphosis. 

Originally, the terrace-level interiors were dark and offered very little living space. Our clients envisioned a large wide-open space with a welcoming fireplace in the middle, as in their upstairs. Our ADB team installed the biggest, open, double-sided direct vent fireplace available. The sunroom addition provides the homeowners a bright space to work on art projects and other hobbies. It is the perfect location for the kids and grandkids to play, with simple, durable and easy-care finishing materials.

You'll enjoy viewing the photos of this terrace-level and reading about some of the challenges the ADB team overcame. Click here to see more.

Our clients are thrilled with their finished project. “Atlanta Design & Build is an amazing company for doing extensive, complicated, design-intensive remodels!” they expressed.

Your Stylish Closet

Every day you are faced with selecting which outfit you will wear when you go to work, go shopping, to the gym or to your favorite restaurant. No matter what your plans are, you want to look good and feel comfortable. The best way to make sure that happens is to have a well-organized, convenient, stylish closet that superbly accommodates your personal wardrobe. Depending on the space you have available, you can arrange for a fantastic walk-in closet or a reach-in closet when you remodel your home.

Walk-in closets are the most popular option for today’s homes. A roomy walk-in closet can serve as a private, intimate dressing room in addition to providing storage for your personal apparel. In this area you can include a cushy lounge chair or love seat that assists with tasks such as putting on socks and shoes. Another practical feature is a center island for laying out clothing and coordinating them with your accessories so you can easily choose what to wear. A drawer-mount ironing board helps with last minute touch-ups, and a full-length mirror lets you check your outfit before you leave.

A walk-in closet can be designed with a luxurious atmosphere that is an extension of your bedroom and bath. This kind of aesthetic setting creates relaxation and delight as you dress, relieving the tension of decision making. Light and airy colors brighten the space and give the impression that your closet is larger than it actually is. A striking wallpaper pattern or three-dimensional wood paneling will lend warmth and interest to the closet walls. Consider an attractive chandelier or pendant light that adds a fashionable look as well as helps illuminate your surroundings. Perhaps you would enjoy an exquisite marble countertop on your island, leather wrapped shelves, a plush carpet or your favorite artwork that expresses your personality. If you have a wired or wireless whole-house sound system you can have beautiful music piped into your closet.
For both walk-in and reach-in closets, functional storage is vital. Evaluate the amount of hanging space you will need for your full-length garments that require a single rod and for your shirts and jackets that can accommodate double rods. Closet rods with pull-down and soft lift mechanisms make your clothing effortlessly accessible. LED lights built into the clothing rods will highlight each individual piece of your wardrobe so you can distinguish between dark navy and black outfits. It is a real asset to include a valet rod that provides a place to set out a particular outfit you are planning to wear soon, so you can keep the clothing crisp and wrinkle free. Include a built-in hamper for outfits that are ready to launder. Provide abundant room for drawers, shelves, and cubbies that offer storage for folded garments, bags, hats, shoes and other accessories. You will appreciate having a jewelry drawer with a lock to protect your valuables.
