Home Tour: A California Coast–Inspired Home in Atlanta

Updated 05/04/19

A well-designed interior has a way of not only transforming you but transporting you. Homepolish's Jamie Wilson proves exactly that, making over two rooms to bring a curated sense of California cool to this southern abode. Rina Patel, who purchased the home in the suburbs of Atlanta, wanted a relaxed California modernism embodied in her living and dining rooms—a fresh contrast from the formal, traditional aesthetic commonplace in the South.

Through minimal details adorning a clean canvas of sleek, modern design, Wilson delivered the Pacific Coast vibe in the bright, sun-washed space. Working in a palette of neutrals—creams, natural wood with driftwood accents, black, white, and the occasional pop of green from cacti and fiddle-leaf fig—Wilson set the scene for an airy, natural lifestyle that reads more Big Sur than down south.

The fiddle-leaf fig adds a burst of green that complements the natural wood of the modern furniture.

Beachwood accents and photos of Big Sur and Marfa instill a decidedly coastal vibe in the sunlit space.

Wilson kept the high ceilings open with unadorned walls but hung an accent piece crafted from natural sticks on the ceiling.
