The owners of the home, who had recently relocated from Houston to Atlanta, brought in interior designer Barbara Hill for her spare aesthetic that doesn’t skimp on fun. Although the Mediterranean-style home was far from modern, “Stripping down the ornamentation really sets those features off,” Hill says. “Most traditional houses with good bones can do the same.”
To highlight the playful pieces she used in the informal dining room, as well as the home’s structure, Hill coated the plaster walls in Benjamin Moore’s Decorators White
and whitewashed the red oak floors. Click through the slideshow to see what furniture she picked to achieve this look.
