French Style in Atlanta

This Parisian style home belongs to Ginny and Paul Williams. Located in Buckhead, Atlanta, it was decorated by interior designer Meridy King. Bearing in mind that the couple has four children, very washable fabrics and slipcovers were chosen.


In the sitting room a combination of old and new with French armchairs, metal benches with velvet tops, a modern sofa and mirrored coffee table from Mrs. Howard . Framed intaglios hang above the chest in the corner. The walls were treated with a lime wash that was shipped from California.


On the other side of the room, a pair of distressed painted cabinets flank the fireplace. The window treatments were hung as high as possible and then dropped to the floor to give the illusion of more height. Small Chinese prayer benches add interest and are usually chosen by the kids to sit on.

In the kitchen, old clock hands from Scott Antique Market are displayed on the hood which go well with the rustic light fixture. Black walnut countertop for the island with barstools tucked completely under.



The garden gate is made from forged wrought iron.

A piece of art by Kenson hangs in the dining room.


Slipcovered chairs around the glass top table in the dining room.


This antique door, found at Angie Tyner Antiques, was left in its original state. It is extremely heavy so a track had to be built above it to allow it to easily slide back and forth like a barn door.


A very French and serene master bedroom. Here again to make the ceiling feel higher, the curtains hang close to it and go all the way down to the floor.
