This Home is Where The Heart Is

Monday, February 14, 2011 | Category: Designers, Magazines

This month, Traditional Home’s cover story spotlighted the gorgeous Atlanta residence of Amy Bergman.  Amy enlisted the help of top architect,  Linda MacArthur, a fellow mom, to make her home beautiful, but also kid-friendly.

It was love at first sight when I saw this home, and in the spirit of Valentine’s Day, here are the reasons why I absolutely LOVE each of the Bergman’s rooms-

Living Room-

I heart…the fact that this room consists mostly of soft neutral upholstery fabrics (with rare pops of color) which makes it easy to change out the color scheme in the future, if needed.

Dining Room-

I heart…the totally funky, unexpected chandelier by Niermann Weeks and how it contrasts nicely with the dark sleek table.

Keeping Room-

I heart…how the scalloped stair wall echoes the curves of the banquette.

I heart…the fact that she even has a banquette at the bottom of her stairs!  What an efficient use of space and such a genius idea!

Home Office-

I heart….how cozy this room feels with the dark dramatic walls and trim painted in Sherwin Williams, Library Pewter.

I also heart…orange (in general) so this room struck a definite cord with me.


I heart…the fact that their cabinets are painted in a color other than white. Don’t get me wrong, I love a beautiful white kitchen, but it’s not every day that you see darker painted cabinets, particularly in this gray-blue.

I also heart…the Anne Sacks glass tile backsplash over the range which makes for a very interesting focal point.

Master Bedroom-

I heart…how they didn’t ignore the height of the room when planning out this space.  A large chandelier, tall swooping bed curtains, and a detailed ceiling, all draw your eye upward and help break up the large expanse of white wall (painted Benjamin Moore’s, Frappe)

Master Bathroom-

I heart…how unique the bathtub is.  With a marble backsplash and a paneled tub surround, this whirlpool tub is nothing short of luxurious.


I heart…the huge walk-in closet. Enough said- the picture explains it all!

What’s not to love here?

Happy Valentine’s!

The living room is my favorite! Using neutral colors as a color scheme and still creating “pops” of interest is never easy…this room does that beautifully!

What an amazing home. From a lighting fanatics viewpoint, the lighting fixtures are fabulous! The scale is great, the fixtures used are quality products, and they all enhance the design of the room.
