Easy Living

One of my favorite features that I’ve written for Atlanta Homes & Lifestyles is the cover story for our April 2019 issue: this dreamy Alys Beach home designed by the lovely Melanie Turner Interiors. Now, in June, this project is giving me all the beach-y vibes that I crave in summer. Find the full story here. Below, I’m sharing some of my favorite inspiring spaces (photos were shot by the talented Mali Azima)


I love the texture the chandelier (which Melanie sourced from Bali) and the pouf give to this entryway. And hello, palm leaf!


These light fixtures ARE EVERYTHING. I love the organic vibe they provide, along with the ceiling beams and barstools.


If this was my home, I think I’d spend a good bit of time curled up in this living room with a good beach read. They look like doors, but it’s actually a pair of retractable windows that open up to the courtyard pool.
