Timeless. Chris Hubbard states, “In a sentence, that’s exactly what we wanted in our home.” I didn’t want interiors or architecture to reflect a particular period. I wanted a timeless look. The classic interiors of Karen Ferguson of Harrison Design make his Atlanta home a reality. Ferguson said, “It was about creating an elegant home that would work well–provide easy life–for a family with young children.”

The foyer is where she set the tone. An antique center table and a new wing chair echo graceful arched windows and the curving staircase. The mahogany table’s warm tones add warmth to a bright space that is filled with light and airy materials.

The living room has a warm and cozy feel thanks to the stained wood built-in shelves. Velvet-covered sofas add a unique touch to the foyer’s gray-white color scheme. Ferguson says that the stained shelves are dynamic and work well with the modern art the Hubbards and me curated for their home. “Contemporary art is so lively in a traditional setting, which is perfect for a young family.”

The Houndstooth drapery panels and Ferguson’s new take on a traditional ceiling add life and movement to the space.

The hall is defined by architectural elements and careful attention to detail. A high-gloss wall finish by Atlanta-based Struttura gives the illusion of mirrors. Ralph Lauren’s “Oliver” English library chair in the family room invites you to relax and enjoy this relaxing gathering place.

I wanted the palette soft, warm and inviting. However, I added white to add freshness and make the home feel more bright.

It is evident in the stunning dining room that the designer paid attention to every detail, including classic columns, rich moldings and ornate ceilings. A room is covered in caramel-hued silk wallcovering, with traditional plasterwork. A paneled niche contrasts the rich walls and accompanies an antique sideboard.

Ferguson states that the palette was launched by the Fortuny fabric Ferguson chose to cover the Louis chairs’ backs. “I wanted the palette feel soft, warm and welcoming. But I also added white to give the home a bright, airy feel.

While silk is a good choice, there are also performance fabrics and easy to clean leather. Ferguson says, “We chose workhorse components that look beautiful but can withstand a house with 3 kids.”

Ferguson created striking vignettes throughout Ferguson’s home. This includes the living room’s combination of Baker’s “Josephine” gondola chairs and modern art by Michael Lotenero. A large-scale ikat design on the Roman shade is used as a foil for a quiet chevron wallcovering in the mudroom.

Her decision to use limestone tiles for kitchen flooring over wood was based on its durability. The wood beams are suspended from a shiplap ceiling, which lends an air of farmhouse elegance. Meanwhile, the antique brass hardware and interior pendants give off a warm glow.

The master suite upstairs is a place where the mood changes to adult elegance. Ferguson chose Bianco Carrara marble as the shower surround in his master bath. This luxurious setting is complemented by an antique gilt mirror and a freestanding tub.

Ferguson was inspired by the marble color to add blue notes to the master bedroom. A retreat for comfort and style, blue silk cocoons walls. The room’s height is matched by the headboard, which provides dynamic curves that are echoed by the sculptural chests as well as a slim sofa. Don’t let anyone think Ferguson forgot the children. With them in mind, she chose the sofa. The designer smiles and says, “They love to sit on the sofa watching cartoons while their parents get ready in the morning.”

Chris declares that “our home is our oasis.” It’s incredible to be able to spend time together as a family in a beautiful place.

Ferguson said that the best part is that the house will always feel like that. I gave them the background. They can continue to add to it. They will make the house grow with them.”

Chris states, “That’s exactly the result I wanted.” “Karen was a visionary and gave us the home we always wanted. We feel content every day that we pull up to the driveway.
