On Monday, I showed you around a shop called Atchison Home. Today, I’m going to give you a tour of the first floor of the Atchison’s home! Like I mentioned in my previous post, their home in on the right side of this building they bought back in 1988:
Their shop is on the left 3/4 of the building, and their home is on the right 1/4.
You enter their home through a set of doors inside the outdoor “foyer” in the photo below:
The double doors themselves came from Belgium. Aren’t they gorgeous?
That table sure is a stunner, too! And how about that concrete floor? Yum!
The first floor of their home is centered around a staircase that leads up to the (three) bedrooms and bathrooms on the second floor.
(The top two floors of this side of the building are used as storage.)
The living room is straight ahead through the front doors…
Here’s another shot of it looking back toward the front doors…
We fell head-over-heels in love with the sofas…
They’re made by Cisco Brothers and they carry them next door at Atchison Home. Turns out you can order them in a variety of different fabrics, but the Atchison’s are covered in Linno Natural slipcovers and I just love how thick and durable they felt.
This guy, on the other hand? He’s a one-of-a-kind from Brussels. 🙂
Off the indoor living room, there’s a fabulous outdoor living room:
…and back through those skinny, white doors is the dining room:
The kitchen is next to the dining room, on the back side of the staircase:
Words cannot describe how much I love their kitchen. 🙂
The building used to serve as a furniture storage facility in the early 1900’s, and I just lit up when Tony told me that horses used to pull in wagons full of furniture through that big arched doorway back in the day. 😀
Now, it opens up onto a beautiful courtyard:
Here’s a look back at the kitchen from the other way:
Between the sound of the fountain, and the sight of the Koi fish in it, and the feeling of being surrounded by such lush foliage- it was such a peaceful place to be!
This next shot shows the view from the kitchen all the way back over to the front doors:
You can also see where the stairs start to lead up to the second floor on the left.
There’s a small powder room opposite the stairs:
The trompe l’oeil paneling was painted by a friend of Tony and Sylvia’s and I was completely fascinated by the effect. That room really transported me to Europe, too! 🙂
I’ve still got to edit some photos of the bedrooms and bathrooms upstairs, so I’ll be back on Friday to finish out the tour. Thanks again to the Atchison’s for allowing us to photograph and feature their beautiful home!
Oh, my, gosh! This is THE MOST beautiful and unique home I have seen in quite some time. Absolutely stunning. I feel like I would have run around from room to room with my senses completely in shock!! So much “pretty” fit into that space. No creepy or haunted warehouse vibe whatsoever. IN. LOVE. Thank you for sharing Layla. I am completely jealous that you saw this in person!!
WOW WOW WOW! that is absolutely my dream home!!!!! so so beautiful!!!!!

Oh my goodness!!! This home is absolutely perfect! Every detail is impeccable. I think this is one of my favorites of all you’ve ever featured! Makes me want to plan a trip South for furniture shopping. I can’t wait to find out what you were inspired by most & how it leads to a project in your home! I’m working on the decor details of our new home & I’m trying hard to keep a light & airy more modern feel while still feeling comfortable & casual. I feel like this home captures that in such a stunning way!
That is, without a doubt, one of the most BEAUTIFUL homes I have ever seen. I can’t believe it is in that old building. It just looks so peaceful! Thanks for sharing. Blessings to you Layla!!

I’m so glad that you had the opportunity to photograph the Atchison’s home and store. Sylvia is so gracious and their home and store are breathtaking. As a Sales Rep I have the pleasure of calling on them and it is indeed an awesome experience every time I go in.
Great job! Looking forward to the next post.
Such talent in pulling it all together. Compliments to the Atchison’s, the sub-titler (is that a word?) and to the photographer!
Big breath… this place is gorgeous. So open and airy, yet comfortable. I can imagine myself sitting and living in a lot of these photos!

I CRAVE a beautiful open space such as this. I love that their business is under the same roof and right next door. What a dream this entire space is. Thanks for bringing it to us!
I cannot begin to tell you how deeply inspired I am by this amazingly gorgeous home! It’s delightful to be able to see what can be done with forsaken buildings but I’ve never seen anything like this 🙂 Thanks for the tour!

Only if you’re dead inside would you not love this home. 😉 It is
amazingly beautiful. Thank you for letting us in on what secrets hide behind those beautiful doors.
Thanks for the peek into this stunning home!
I can’t believe that as I was scrolling through the pictures, I spoke out loud, “Stop! I can’t take it anymore!” If I lived in their home, I would simply never leave. GORGEOUS!
Packing my bags and heading to Alabama…Please let the Atchison’s know that they are adopting a family of four.: )
Oh Layla I am in love with this beautiful home and business! Thank you so much for sharing it with us.
cough, sputter….. SHUT UP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
There are no words.

I am always just amazed that people get to live daily in such beauty. Such great taste they have. Wish I could get by their shop! Bet I could find some great Christmas presents….for me!!! Please thank them again for sharing the home. Can’t wait to see more upstairs!
be still my soul….this home is truly beautiful. seems like we should all gather there for a party! : )
That light fitting is amazing!
Wow, this space is splendid! I cannot believe it’s a part of a warehouse. Of course, their store doesn’t look a thing like a warehouse. It’s all so lovely!
Oh. My. Absolutely stunning…and Kevin’s photographs show it all so beautifully! Thank you for the tour!
It’s so light and airy. My fav is the outdoor space, classy and cozy!
I would love, love, love to find out the color of the floor stain. It is just the shade I want in our future house that we are designing!
Could u tell me where I could purchase the rug u have in the kitchen? It is the one with aqua in it. This is exactly what I am looking for. Thank you so much for any assistance. Love what u have done in this space.
