This house is located in a well established neighborhood in Atlanta with mature trees and shrubs. The former house was a dark, dated ranch and this couple wanted an updated, bright Cape Cod style home with open concept interiors with great entertaining spaces that centered around the pool and gardens. They also wanted the house to seem like it had always been there. The shingles and stone work are classic architectural features that stand the test of time.
The exterior of this home feature a mix of grey shingles and stone siding. Door stain is Provential with 20% brown tint added.
This kitchen feels clean, bright and crisp! The perimeter counter is Caesarstone Raven while the island is Caesastone Calacatta Nuvo with a mitered 2.25” edge. The clients wanted to use a quartz for counter tops- it looks great and is easy to maintain!

Hello, my wonderful friends. How is everything with you?
This is what I was thinking about last night before going to sleep… maybe my “mantra” should be “My life is good and it will keep getting better”.
Truth to be told, nothing gets better if we don’t believe 100% in it. Positive thoughts creates positive energy and this “duo” should be part of our daily lives.
I want to be more aware of my thoughts, of what I am putting out there… because everything I give, I get back. By being positive and being direct with how I envision my life I help myself get there.
Bring a positive attitude and have positive thoughts. Make sure to stop yourself from any kind of negativity — stop your thoughts, stop talking negatively and stop any sort of complaining. Those things will only attract more reasons to complain. If you think positive you will be creating a more positive environment and energy, and this will bring more positive results to your life.
At this moment, we are getting rid of what does not belong to us – all negativity, all issues that are not making us grow and keep bringing us down– all of that does not belong to us, and yes, we’re getting rid of it. Right now, we’re creating a better life, a healthier life, a life filled with Love, respect and a life filled with prosperity.
Start by believing this: “My life is good and it will keep getting better” … because it will!
