Location: Atlanta, Georgia
Size: 891 square feet
Years lived in: 2 years, owned

My home is a two-bed, one-bath, renovated ranch-style home in the Jefferson Park neighborhood outside of Atlanta, Georgia. My two cats Howard and Alan are my fluffy housemates. I enjoy my house because it is perfect for entertaining with two French doors that open to a large patio in the back, and kitchen/dining/living room areas that flow seamlessly into one another.

I have a large adopted roller derby family, so entertaining was one of my requirements in searching for a home. The consensus from friends and family is that I have a “Pinterest home” full of Southern hipster charm.

Describe your home’s style in 5 words or less: Serene, chic, fun, artsy

What is your favorite room and why? The guest bedroom/mountain room is my favorite because the space is a breath of fresh air—you have a panorama of slightly-abstracted smoky mountains. There’s not much else to distract from feeling peaceful in there.

If you could magically change something about your home, what would it be? If money were no object, I’d love to completely redo my living room on a whim for every season of the year. I do a lot of window shopping online in my spare time, and tend to have design mood boards simmering on the back burner in my mind at all times.

What’s the last thing you bought (or found!) for your home? I bought MERETE IKEA curtains and dip-dyed them dark turquoise for my living room windows.

Any advice for creating a home you love? Take your time—the process of making your house a home is never truly finished! That’s the joy of owning a home, in my opinion.

Thanks, Marie Provence!
