In the Heart of Midtown

1236+Monroe+Dr-02.jpg

As builders, each project comes to us with its unique challenges. The house on Monroe was no exception. We found it in a horrific state - a tree had fallen and split it directly down the middle! Talk about an opportunity to problem solve!

1236+Monroe+Dr-01.jpg

Level Craft worked with the owner to design and build an incredibly stylish 3 bedroom, 3.5 bath Tudor style home with an open floor plan. High end finishes and detailed architectural elements give it a refreshing uniqueness.

This home has a convenient two-car garage leading inside to a wonderful custom designed mudroom and desk area. The home is flooded with natural light and creative storage solutions.

The back of the home has 2 levels of decks and porches that overlook the Atlanta sky line! And it’s only a short stroll to Piedmont park.

We’re incredibly pleased with the the simple beauty and functionality of this home.

Call us. We love what we do and are looking forward to discussing your dream home.

HOTTEST COLORS of 2019

We’ve been reading up on recent design trends, namely interior paint, and thought you might want to know what’s in store for 2019!

Color Choice - It’s a Big Deal

It’s not an easy task to select a color of the year for many major interior paint manufacturers. Teams of designers and color stylists mull over the decision, and hours of research regarding consumer trends, lifestyles, and recurring themes in history are considered. Even the title given to color of the year can have serious marketing implications.

The ladies understand this 'color conundrum' when deciding between two shades of red at the nail salon...and making the final decision based solely on the name.  (Personally, we love “I’m Not Really a Waitress!”)  

Color is a psychological powerhouse in the fields of advertising, marketing, and design. It creates a mood, emphasizes a connection, and manifests intimacy in our living spaces.

 

According to the color experts, here’s what’s hot right now:


Pantone Color of the Year 2019 — Living Coral

PANTONE 16-1546 Living Coral — Read the Color Intelligence

Described as “An animating and life-affirming coral hue with a golden undertone that energizes and enlivens with a softer edge.”

Pantone, a company that proclaims itself “the global authority on color,” has been around since 1963 and employs a 20-person team called the Pantone Color Institute to help with the Color of the Year selection. The process of selecting a color takes 9 months!

Sherwin Williams describes Cavern Clay as a "warm terracotta color with ancient, elemental roots," and explains that it's a "nod to midcentury modern style, but with the soul of the American Southwest, which together create the desert modern aesthetic."


Behr’s Color of the Year 2019 — Blueprint

Blueprint S470-5— Read the Color Intelligence

Blueprint, available exclusively at The Home Depot, is a mid-tone blue that Behr's in-house color expert, Erika Woelfel, believes is universally appealing, as it's "warmer than denim and softer than navy." 


Benjamin Moore Color of the Year 2019 — Metropolitan

METROPOLITAN AF-690

“Comforting, composed and effortlessly sophisticated, Metropolitan AF-690 exudes beauty and balance,” said Ellen O’Neill, Benjamin Moore Director of Strategic Design Intelligence. “It’s a color in the neutral spectrum that references a contemplative state of mind and design. Not arresting nor aggressive, this understated yet glamorous gray creates a soothing, impactful common ground.

What do you think?

Some Real Progress

3101BAYSTREET-0005.jpg

Watching a home go up is such a joy. Every addition, every detail, the smells, the paint colors and finishing touches - we love it all. 

A couple months ago, on Instagram, we posted a photo of the framing of this house. Go take a look (and please follow us while you're at it)! We sure have come a long way. This spec home is one of two we have available in Scottdale - which is an up-and-coming neighborhood in Atlanta - and it has really taken shape. We're  almost finished. If you want more information just go to our For Sale page and take a look. We'd be happy to give you the tour. Meanwhile, here's a snapshot of some of the timeless materials we're using!

This house is going to make a lovely home for someone. Maybe you! 

Let us know if you want to see it in person.

Best, 

Virginia + Debbie
