This is one of the original homes built in Serenbe, a wellness community located just outside of Atlanta. Designer Bradley Odom wanted to help his clients bring it up to date, while ensuring it still fit in aesthetically with the existing environment and reflect the true architecture of the home. The clients, a busy family with two kids, were hoping for a more refined design but it was important to them that it remain approachable. “A new kitchen and a new primary bath were a must, but overall, we had free reign to make something lovely happen,” Bradley shares. 

“The jumping off point was probably updating the kitchen,” he says. “We did all custom cabinets throughout and included stone that has lots of movement. Neither of us wanted a ‘white’ kitchen, but what we ended up with was white, but balanced really well with white oak and a creamier backsplash along with a texture fluted range hood that brings it all together. It also plays well with the adjacent living area and the new plaster coated fireplace.”

Bradley, the founder of popular Atlanta boutique Dixon Rye, used a lot of pieces found in his shop here. “This project is really a mix of both Dixon Rye and collected pieces including more modern art,” he explains. “I like to say that Dixon Rye is a well edited mix of all things raw yet refined – a place where how things are made, where they are made, and who made them are important.” Here, a Dixon Rye sofa, chairs, and dining table are all included, while he utilized existing pieces (like the clients’ chairs upholstered in a new fabric) to add their personality to the space.
