A Modern Atlanta Renovation: BEFORE & AFTER

July 29th, 2014
by vanessa

As nostalgic as lovers of mid-century mojo can be, most of us know better than to think that every tarnished relic is worth dragging out of the attic to refurbish. Making a rusty 1950s patio furniture set look like it did in 1952 might make you miss more Perry Mason reruns than you can shake a stick at.

And then, there are the hidden treasures that are more valuable renovated than they were new.

3207 N. Embry Circle is one of those hidden treasures. Under the worn exterior lay a solid frame upon which something spectacular could be built.

That’s where the Domo Realty team came in. Our goal was to bring lovers of unique mid-century renovations something they’d want more than a new bullet planter from Décor-Décor. And we did it! The finished product is the bee’s knees of mid-century comfort and style.

Let’s start from the beginning with curb appeal, or in this case, the lack thereof.

Being the mid-century home resurrectionists that we are—yes, I just made that word up—my team and I gave Bob a sorely-needed upgrade and a cleaner, more respectable look by replacing the existing roof with new 20 year architectural shingles and adding a few fresh coats of modern designer paint.

As you can see, the family room was a tremendous dud. White walls, bare and pale, stood between the kitchen and the living/dining room space making the house feel cramped and lifeless.

In the kitchen, the room that I consider the crown glory of this lovely abode, we installed a chef’s faucet, a smoky glass tile backsplash, granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, and custom cabinets.

Casually Cool Mid-Century Modern

July 22nd, 2014
by vanessa

If you’ve been looking for a Mid-Century Modern in Northcrest you’ve probably noticed that there AREN’T ANY because all the cool kids have bought them already!!! That’s right, the Mid-Century Modern homes you have been drooling over have been receiving 1, 2, sometimes 5 offers at a time and are selling faster than you can shake a dead chicken at (I just made that up, the dead chicken part).

But today, my friend, is your lucky day because domoREALTY has just listed one of the coolest MCM homes in the ‘hood! 3446 Lori Lane is all that and a bag of low-fat, baked, gluten free potato chips (I made that up too).

This Bad-a** Mid-Century Modern has two, that’s right, TWO added on bonus rooms. Including the sunroom with its massive wall of windows. This room would be perfectly suited for any aspiring artist or perhaps an in-house atrium if you prefer to garden. Or for the warrior within, turn this extra space into a Tie Kwan Do studio (I know that’s not how you spell it – today I’m alphabetically challenged). The second bonus room is the vaulted dining room that can easily seat over 12 friends and their (uninvited) dates comfortably.

Besides all the extra space this home has the most impeccable downstairs den and modern bathroom you have ever seen! Not to mention the tankless water heater and a secret bomb shelter/ workshop in the basement.

It’s pretty much the dog’s pajamas with its incredible modern curb appeal and Brazilian hardwood floors. But the best part is, you can stick with the original kitchen OR - YOU GET TO design and create your very own dream kitchen!! Isn’t that swell!? If you buy this house domoREALTY would be happy to provide a FREE kitchen consultation complete with subcontractor information so that you can literally have it all.

**** please pardon any typos in this blog as I have been averaging 3-4 hours of interrupted sleep per night thanks to domoREALTY’s latest addition: Sage Reilly Richardson.  See her bio HERE

Bathrooms: 3
