Recap: O4W Tour of homes!

Nandina was proud to take part in this year’s Old Fourth Ward Tour of Homes! This year’s tour featured a wide variety of incredible living spaces including stunning lofts, classic, and contemporary designs. The house was designed by Nandina Atlanta Interior Designer John Ishmael. It is a beautiful 2-story classic craftsman style home, with beautiful details like 4-foot wainscoting, hardwood floors, 11-foot ceilings, and an extensive use of glass. When it came to furnishing and selecting lighting for the home, the homeowner wanted to be true to the period design, with and updated look.


The homeowner wanted the interior design to have a collected look that is reflective of his travels and love of art. In the entryway,  you are met with a wide hall. Here, we decided to create a wall of art and photos. To the left, you are met with a light-filled dining room. We placed a long dining table here, with some dining and host chairs from Lee Industries. Some hide rugs on the sisal give the room a whimsical touch.


From the hallway, you enter the great room, with two tall wingback chairs by  Lee Industries, accented with some side tables by Gabby Home. The sectional is accented by yellow and red pillows, made in Nandina workroom. The warm palette of reds and golds makes this expansive space feel much more cozy. Original art by designer John Ishmael helps to pull the whole scheme together.


Adjacent to the living room is the modern kitchen, with a large island and eat-in area.  The eat-in area is where the family eats most of their meals, so John’s design strives to create a welcoming space. The round table and light-colored rug compliment this light-filled room.


The upstairs of the home features 4 large bedrooms, including a master suite with a kitchenette and vaulted tray ceiling. lots of windows, and a four-poster bed from Hickory Chair that is fit for a king! Additionally, there is a basement which features an in-law suite and media room, a 2-car garage, and a motorcycle garage.


We loved working with the homeowner on this project, as well as the team of hard working volunteers who put on the “Fall in the Fourth” festival and tour of homes. Hopefully, some of you made it out there to get some project inspiration. We look forward to our next home tour!
