Houzz Writer Becky Harris Shares Her Atlanta Porch and Bathroom

In this episode of Houzz TV Live, longtime Houzz writer Becky Harris gives a virtual tour of the screened porch and renovated bathroom at her home in Atlanta. Harris decorated the 12-by-12-foot porch with budget-friendly furniture and colorful artwork by folk artist “Missionary” Mary Proctor.

In the bathroom, which Harris wrote about for Houzz, patterned encaustic cement floor tile, marble countertops and a large chandelier strung with blue beads bring personality and style.

Great job on both porch and bathroom! Love how you value history, the original architecture, and sentimentality of your home. It says: “Becky’s house” not “the designer lives in the space”

That porch looks like a great place to relax! Bathroom is wonderful. Anytime a space gets refreshed it’s always so much better!!

French chairs on the porch are lovely. Envious of the screened in nature. Love that you support local artists.

I'd like to say that I love how personal your space is. Not driven by trend but embracing memories and practicalities. It shows restraint and taste. IMO!

Hi, Becky I love your sinks and vanity, this is what I want to do in my bathroom but it will involve taking out the only bath tub in the house . I do have a good size shower and we never take baths ,so should I just go for it ? When we built this house 25 years ago, we only put one sink in the master because my husband and I were never in there at the same time, because of our work schedule, but now we are both retired and that changed everything.Thanks for your beautiful work ,and stay safe😁

Wowwww!!!!! Thanks for this incredible interview and video, Rick! Becky Harris has such incredible taste and is a master of the mix. So impressed with the eclectic vibe that has a unified story and the easy, natural composition; and color combos that make it really pretty overall but when you hone in on details, it’s fiercely unique and interesting! Love love loved it. What great spaces, including the chair rail, light switch and wainscot in the corner she’s sitting in! Bravo.

Thanks for sharing your charming rooms with us Becky. I love the warmth and fun you brought to the porch in the mixed textiles, furnishings, and art with personal meaning. I appreciate how your bathroom tile brings whimsy to the classic space.

Becky, this was so fun to see you "live". You have always stood out from other writers through your humor and grace when commenters become snarky or critical. The detail you provide with the floor plans makes it possible to really visualize the remodel work. Of course you have legions of fans - I'll always be one of them.

Whoo Hoo! So fun to get a glimpse of you and your carefully created spaces. The pleasure you take in considering the homes of others is evident as you describe your own thought process and decision making. Enjoy your time in the spotlight and then come visit us in Maine. :-)

Now I see why I like your articles. I have the same taste and I do thrift store finds, garage sales, etc for some pieces. At times I splurge on items and buy new. Also you are not a minimalist.

Homes where decisions are made about design based on what the owners love, are homes with wonderful personality! Well done, Becky!

Hi Becky, I have followed you for a few years now. I enjoy that your posts are about common sense answers to our home dilemmas. What I enjoyed most about the Houzz feed was seeing your porch. It was so inviting and reflected your personality.

I'm a Becky Harris fan. I always enjoy your articles and I enjoyed listening to your interview. I appreciate your "go with what you love" ideology, even if it isn't "on trend". Trends come and go, but our basic personal style remains fairly constant.

I'd like a look at the front of the house and into the ravine.

Hi Becky, So nice to see you and to hear about your own home design. Looks delightful; I love the eclectic seating selections on the porch, so much variety all happily grouped in one space.

@Suzanne Gavelle you can't even see the ravine through the jungle at the moment, and after spying a snake in my yard last week, I am not about to set foot out there! I am just starting to phase in a master landscape plan for the whole property (we just started planting phase 1 last week). Right now the phases are baby steps. As a person with a degree landscape architect, the way my property looks at the moment a lot like the cobbler's kids with no shoes.

Becky, I could sit out on your porch all day reading and relaxing or at least until the heat and humidity got to me. Same problem here in Houston. :(

HI Becky. I loved both your porch and bathroom. This is the first time I saw your bathroom, and I actually did the same on my bathroom mirror as well a while ago. My bathroom cabinets are a darker grey (Benj, Moore Charcoal) and my walls are are oxford grey. I wanted the white walls to brighten up my small bathroom as there is no window. I also rent so I was limited to what I can do. I was unable to do the floors and the counter, and our place was built in 1964. On another note, I absolutely love your art on the porch. I LOVE unique art that tells a story. Thank you for sharing your inspiration!

Beck's the best! This makes me REALLY want to double down and finish my porch remodel. Sigh... My dream is to visit Atlanta and be invited to a 'Becky's Porch Party.' ;)

Hi,

I've been reading your articles for years so it was really great to get a sense of your personal taste. It looks really homely in the British sense of the word. So cozy and relaxed. I love your home.

Echoing what your other fans have said, I never pass up a Becky Harris story. Now I know that the personality evident in your writing is genuinely you. :<) Your bathroom is wonderful, love the warmth of the wood frame and bench. As for the screened porch...drool. We have a lovely four season sun room, definitely more useable than screen in the low country, but it is no substitute for the quintessential southern screened porch.

Thank you for your good writing, your kind responses and for sharing your home.
