Do You Love Where You Live? Great Ideas for Interiors Designed With Your Personal Lifestyle in Mind
Are you considering the redesign of a room or group of rooms in your home? Do you wonder how your home can be both sophisticated and relaxing? Allison Havill Todd’s new book, “Interiors for Living: Stylish and Comfortable Home Designs,” provides expert advice, down-to-earth tips and plenty of before and after project photos reflecting a wide variety of lifestyles, locations and personalities.
ATLANTA, Georgia — AHT Interiors specializes in lakefront home design, so it is no surprise that several of the families highlighted in Allison Havill Todd’s new book live on Lake Sidney Lanier, a beautiful 38,000-acre reservoir located north of metropolitan Atlanta, Georgia. Though they all chose a convenient and scenic lakefront location, her clients’ homes and family lifestyles could not have been more varied! Included are an active, sports-related family who aimed for a close family atmosphere within the walls of a grandiose home, avid collectors of both fine antiques and fine wines who dreamed of an aesthetically pleasing tasting room from four bare concrete walls, dog-lovers who wanted to allow their large pets access to their stylish living spaces, and a couple who have hosted hundreds of political figures, actors and other celebrities in their home, but still needed a cozy environment to relax after a long day of work.
Non-lakefront clients represented equally challenging objectives. They include retirees with a desire for relaxed elegance using family-friendly fabrics and furnishings to accommodate their young grandchildren, professionals (and empty-nesters) who wished to transform their well-worn teen pad into an elegant multi-use living area, a family of seven who desired a cohesive, stylish home that could stand up to the rigors of five children and an in-home business, and a very busy, business-owning, homeschooling, RV-traveling family who needed inviting and comfortable spaces for themselves, two children, two dogs and a cat. The book showcases several more families seeking balance between their interior spaces and their lives.
Based on the author’s popular blog, Allison’s Design File, “Interiors for Living” introduces homeowners to the possibility of living in a home that is gorgeous while at the same time being tailored to their lifestyles. “Nobody has ever asked me to design an interior that was uncomfortable,” says Allison. “Given the hectic pace of our lives, we all need a place that makes us feel good and nurtures our souls. Many times, just a few simple changes can transform a home into a more pleasing environment.” Alongside a generous amount of before and after photos, Allison discusses the challenges faced, and the problems solved, in the process of providing balanced, harmonious environments for her clients.
“The before and after pictures tell the whole story. A book of enormous grace, style, and practicality with some wit thrown in for good measure. Who could ask for anything more?” (Carol Lazare, Retired VP, Doubleday Books)
“Interiors for Living gorgeously illustrates how Allison works with real people with real lives and challenges … translating those needs into highly personal and functional interiors that are stylish, comfortable and timeless.” (Terri Taylor, ASID, IDS, Owner, Taylor Design Group and Design Biz Blueprint)
“More than stunning designs, “Interiors for Living” showcases personal stories that inspire ways to make the most of one’s home … making North Atlanta a more enjoyable place to live one home at a time.”(Colleen Ann McNally, Associate Editor, Points North Magazine)
