(Melanie) Davis Designs

I was recently looking for images of copper lights and stumbled across Interior Designer Melanie Davis.  I am in awe of her work.  Turns out, any Garden & Gun subscriber has seen some of her work before (Oct/Nov 2010 issue – ‘Homeward Bound’).  She’s a UGA grad who studied photography and runs Davis Designs here in Atlanta.  In fact, when I contacted her about using her images, she replied: ‘I am on my way to Athens for the game…’.

Her recent project is the house below – called ‘Woodruff House’.  This looks like the kind of place I could call home.  I’ll let her work speak for itself:

Thanks to Melanie for letting me use the images (taken by Emily Jenkins Followill Photography). I thought Red Clay Soul readers would enjoy them.

    Amazing use of neutrals. I just wish I could afford such finery

    Thanks to you and Melanie for sharing those pictures. I love her aesthetic; nice blend of relaxed country simplicity and old-world sophistication. Gives me a couple ideas for the next furnishings for my home.

    Ah! To die for! The kitchen is almost identical to the kitchen in the Southern Living Idea House in Senoia, Georgia.

    I don’t know how I missed this post. What an amazing portrayal of the outdoor lifestyle. I would need nothing else in my home, other than a few bottles of whiskey. Thanks for sharing.

    I am interested in the brand and color of the green cabinets. Does anyone know?

    I meant to say, brand and color of paint.

    That is some of the most stunning design and decorating I have ever seen…and I usually do not pay attention to such things. Thanks.

    Would love to know about the oval artwork (quail and turkey) above the demi lune table…are they custom order or can they be purchased online?
