A Colorful, Sustainable, Sophisticated Bungalow

This 1920’s historic home was turned into a colorful, sustainable, sophisticated bungalow by the hands of my favorite, Avery Cox Design. The 100-year-old Atlanta home had been stripped of its charm over the past decades. The stylish owner was determined to bring character and color back into this bungalow.

Enlisting the help of crazy-cool-bungalow-expert, Avery Cox, this project is bursting with creative color palettes. Layers of architectural elements frame the whimsical vintage finds of this fine-art photographer’s home.

The Sustainable Living + Dining Room

To bring the 1920’s character back into this space, archway transitions were added between rooms. Avery told us that her client had great fun sourcing vintage furniture from Round Top and locally in Atlanta at Scott’s. Repainting, reupholstering, and refinishing is the name of the game for this whimsical jewel box. The overall effect is a richly layered British snug that celebrates art, color, and thrill of the hunt.

A particularly noteworthy superpower of Avery’s is her ability to transition between wallpapers and paint colors in an open concept floor plan. In the living room, bold neutral stripes were painted, as a cost-effective alternative to wallpaper. The tone on tone palette allows the colorful vintage rattan furniture to shine. With wide arches framing every view from one room to another, I love the way the floor plan feels open and airy, while clearly distinguishing between spaces.

The Colorful Primary Bedroom

Color play is the name of the game in this primary suite. Avery is never afraid to take chances with her palettes (see these counter stools). The muddy nectarine trim paired with the calming powder blue are evocative. And just outside the muted chartreuse vestibule rounds out the palette, pulled right our of William Morris pattern.

The Sophisticated Study

Somehow always outdoing the room before, the study is no exception. Deep teal paint in a lacquer finish magically bounces around natural light while still remaining moody. All furnishings were sourced secondhand, partially by the homeowner in Atlanta, partially by Avery Cox back in Austin. A personal touch is the clients’ own desk repainted in Benjamin Moore’s Lawn Green 2045-20. Her personal photographs create the perfect backdrop to her extensive library.
