Fireplaces are an asset to your home. They can be pretty and serve as an intimate spot. When we first saw our clients Decatur home, we knew there were lots of possibilities. One, the wide open space in the home could be broken down into separate areas; rooms within a room. By doing this it would create a more intimate experience. We created three separate areas. One was the Fireside Chat area, another was the Living/Entry Area, and the last was the Dining Room Area.  Today, we will be revealing the Fireside Chat. We wanted to make the fireplace a feature when you walked into the home. Fro ..read more

A Porch for All Year Round

Decks in Atlanta can be the ultimate luxury for our southern weather. It allows us to have a place to sit outside all year round. It’s even better when the deck is covered and becomes more of a porch. Recently, we worked on a deck with clients as part of their whole home design plan. Here is how the decked looked when we started this project.     As you can see it was a basic deck but had pretty rails. They decided as part of the plan to install a metal covering that opens and closes electronically. The covering allows them to open and close it depending on the weather.  If it ..read more

Houses are just houses until you make them your home. You have to combine the personalities of the owners with a style that fits to make their home feel safe and warm. That’s exactly what we did for this project. Originally, the homeowners purchased this house and filled it with their combined furniture from when they were married. None of it went together. They knew that, but were waiting for the right time to invest in furniture. After about 9 months of living in their new home, they decided it was time and contacted us. They wanted us to help them with the main family room that opened to th ..read more

Now that you’ve seen and read all about the main part of our “Enclave Circle Project, Part 1”, it’s time to reveal the bar area of the same project. If you don’t remember, the space started out looking like this:     We liked the location of the bar. The cabinets weren’t terrible, but we wanted it to be able to house more than what it currently held. We also wanted it to look better since it was right off the dining area. It needed some beautification.   We kept the idea of having a wall of cabinets, but broke it into zones. We wanted a coffee zone and a cocktail zone. We creat ..read more

Kitchens are truly the heart of the home. So much of life happens in here. Cooking, entertaining, and hanging out. More times than not, a kitchen is connected to the family room. Whether it’s an open concept plan or the neighboring room, the kitchen is intertwined with family living, day to day. Having a highly functionable kitchen as well as a beautiful one is our ultimate goal at Morse Design. When working on a kitchen renovation one of the first items we take care of is selecting the kitchen appliances. I tell clients to make a wish list of every appliance they would like to have in their d ..read more

Professional photos taken by Marc Mauldin Another room that our Harvard Drive clients wanted to update was their guest room. The couple is an empty nester whose daughter comes to visit regularly. They wanted a more sophisticated space for her and her husband to stay in when they came to town. They needed better storage and a prettier room. We worked on this room at the same time we were working on the powder bathroom. Here is how the room looked before we got in there.     It looked like it was the room where all the leftover furniture was stored. We wanted to create a room that a v ..read more

Professional photos taken by Marc Mauldin Every once in a while we come across a client that wants to stretch their own imagination which allows us to be super creative! This was one of those clients. She really trusted us and our process. When we were initially contacted, the client had several places in her home that needed updating. One of them was her powder bath. Nothing had been done to it since moving into the home. Here is what it looked like when we came over.     It was a blank box. We were getting a clean slate. It was small in width so we had to use a below average size ..read more

When I do powder bath renovations they are typically part of a larger project. I only photograph the parts of that project that I have done completely including furnishings. For this project we made a bunch of changes around the house. We added shiplap to an office and back hall area, we created beams for interest in the family room, we added drapery in several bedrooms, and recovered pieces of furniture. While all of this was going on we renovated the powder bath. The bathroom is the only part of this project I will be sharing with you. Unfortunately, I never took pictures of the space before ..read more
