Hi bigislandrocks,

The homeowners did all of the painting themselves and filled the home with local art, antique finds and family heirlooms! And I definitely agree that the colors create such a warm and a unique creative environment!

Hi Katrina!

The light fixture was original to the home, so the source is unknown! However, I will say the light fixture looks vintage - so whether it was inspired by a vintage light fixture (like this one below)
Matloff Residence · More Info

or is a vintage chandelier, it's great addition to the room!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Lauren Anne recently painted the brick fireplace white and refurbished two garage sale armchairs by painting the wood a cool brown and covering the cushions in a solid red fabric. Sofa: Pottery BarnHow to paint a brick fireplace

Educate yourself and tenants about potential hazards. Older buildings can house all sorts of unpleasant things, from lead paint to mold and asbestos. Certain locations can be especially prone to natural disasters, like earthquakes in California or tornadoes in Kansas. Find out what you need to do to put safety measures in place, inform tenants or both, right from the get-go.
Going to the dark side in Georgia. Zack and Lauren Anne Johnson are normally drawn toward soft, neutral hues. But something about their 1920s farmhouse in Athens, Georgia, called them to use bolder color. In the living room, this deep royal blue makes the original woodwork look even richer.Paint: Deep Royal, Benjamin MooreSee the rest of this home
