Caryn's Raw & Romantic Fairytale Loft

House Call

Name: Caryn Grossman
Location: Poncey-Highland neighborhood of Atlanta, Georgia

My home is 2,300 square feet in a converted telephone factory warehouse built in 1936 and listed on the National Historic Register. What I love most about my home, and the building, is that the spaces were left raw, with concrete floors and ceilings, exposed ductwork and original columns, ready for creative expression.The space is soaring, with clerestory windows up to 28 feet, and a wall of original factory windows running 24 feet across the back elevation. Entering my place, to me, is like entering a fairytale, with 16-foot taffeta silk curtains puddled on the concrete floor, salvage finds from old European churches, military bases and schools, along with the latest Italian design.

The best way I can think to describe my place is like an ongoing sculptural installation, with ever-changing expression, depending on my mood and inspiration.

Thanks, Caryn!
