  • Walnut Cove's inspiration was found from traditional prairie motifs and updated them for this modern home in the mountains.

    Throughout the residence, there is a strong theme of horizontal lines integrated with a natural, woodsy palette and a gallery-like aesthetic. The Walnut Cove Residence combines the clean lines and simplicity of modern design with warmth and functionality.

    Situated in a prominent location within a lively community, the home has a discreet presence on the property. Using cedar shiplap siding and Tennessee fieldstone, the warm exterior palette blends harmoniously with its surroundings.

    The massing of the house is horizontal with low-pitched hip roofs to further integrate it into the landscape.The interior palette uses a monochromatic scheme accented by muted gray wood tones and minimalist trim and casing details. This light interior aesthetic gives a simple backdrop for the owner’s art collection. At the heart of this home is the great room. The expansive use of windows around the room provides generous views and a strong connection to the outdoors. The screened porch sits at the end of the home and nestles into the land.

    This property is part of the Atlanta Design Festival MA! Architecture Tour 2017™
