Our Process

We believe the development of each home is an evolutionary process honed by careful, analytical planning to the realization of a cohesive whole. No matter your project type we start the design process the same. In the initial design meeting we listen to your ideas and thoughts and take notes and gather information. From here we develop a design through research and planning. These preliminary designs are presented and reviewed with you then we discuss the next step and the process continues.

Furniture and a Refresh

If your project is furnishings and a refresh, we at Accents of the South understand how the subtle interaction between space, light and material tie together for a complete effect, curating a custom design as unique as you. We understand the importance of comfortable, well-made furniture and offer hundreds of brands to suite any budget and needs. After the initial design phase, we take our designs from budgeting and ordering to receiving and installation. You can read more about what to expect when you buy furniture from us here.

New Construction or Renovation

If your project is a renovation or new construction, our involvement in this process can begin as early as you start dreaming! Floor plans, elevations, moldings and trim details, cabinet drawings, tile layouts, plumbing, lighting design and selections. We take care of it all!


On larger scale projects, Accents of the South, works in collaboration with you, the architect, and artisans. Involving us in the initial design phase will insure everyone will be on the same page. We can iron out any potential discrepancies that would be the “bones” of the home – such as doorways, ceiling beams or interior columns. It’s one thing to move a wall on paper; it’s another thing entirely to move it after installation.


From Idea to Fruition

We love getting pins sent to us from clients and invitations to idea-boards on Houzz. It helps us dive deeper into what you want and gives us the direction the project needs to take. It is our job to take your visions, ideas, Pinterest boards and Houzz accounts and make them all come together in a cohesive, beautiful way.

Taking those ideas to the next level is where we fly! Our architectural drawings are the key to a successful build-out. Stay tuned for more on architectural drawing services!

Backyard Oasis

BACKYARD OASIS : Outdoor spaces are just as important as interiors.  Many backyards are designed to be an extension of the home, giving more space to entertain with family and friends.  And the homeowners wanted to do just that, taking advantage of their backyard’s full potential. Through Accents of the South’s design of the pool deck and a new pavilion housing an outdoor kitchen, dining and living space, the clients’ backyard truly became the perfect room with a view.


EUSTIS : This bungalow style home is nestled in downtown Huntsville. A kitchen and master bath renovation elevated the home’s interior and made it more functional for the new home owners. The subtle tones of putty, apricot and orange is traipsed throughout the main level. The glamorous bath with hand blocked wall paper finish off the space that once was a bedroom.

Low Country French

LOW COUNTRY FRENCH : This Low country French house built in Mooresville, Alabama infuses the enchantment of an ages old residence into a newly built home. Accents of the South layered on the patina of charm inside the H shape home by including French influence details throughout. A neutral palette and rooms having windows on at least two sides allows the furnishings and home to truly shine.

Lurie Residence

MODERN LODGE (LURIE RESIDENCE) – Merging the rustic, post and beam style of the home’s architecture with the client’s more contemporary furniture was Accents of the South’s goal. By painting the walls a soft grey, the space was lightened and given a more transitional feel. Spring green accents added color without being overwhelming, and hints of orange counter-balanced the green while complementing the warm, wood tones.


A rustic table with a custom, streamlined banquette created the cozy breakfast room the family desired. A fun, horizontal, striped drape made the room feel wider and an added touch of spring green kept this open space cohesive.


RANDOLPH : Enjoying each other’s company while cooking in the kitchen was nearly impossible for our clients’ large family. The kitchen was closed off and not accessible to the living room. Through the removal of a wall, adjusting the layout, and adding additional bar seating, we achieved three spaces that work together. These rooms are now the perfect gathering place for both family and friends, and have become one large cohesive space at the heart of the home.

Lake Refuge

LAKE REFUGE : Entertaining and large family gatherings were an integral part of the mix for this lake home, which has a contemporary cottage look with soft hues and rustic pine floors. The galley style kitchen is the perfect set up for cooking and entertaining with a pass through to the great room. Incorporating lap siding throughout most of the main living space added texture and depth to the walls. A neutral palette was chosen for the main living spaces with pops of apple green as an accent. The oversized porches at the back of the house offer an ideal spot for enjoying the beautiful views of the large lake and surrounding mountains. The combination of these elements make this home an ideal destination for the gathering of family and friends.

Mountaintop Allure

MOUNTAINTOP ALLURE : Overlooking the beautiful Ledges Golf Course, this mountain-top home is built in a style reminiscent of the late 19th century, Victorian Italianate architecture. While Accents of the South appreciates the historic context, we understand the need for the home to adapt to an active, modern lifestyle. Planned with lively children in mind, the rooms are of moderate size, each flowing into the next, creating a sense of closeness within the home – but also allowing the family to be together yet not on top of one another.

Game Day Haven

GAME DAY HAVEN : This 1940s Greek revival sits on a beautiful lot that is within walking distance of the lovely downtown area and Auburn University—a perfect site for a game day house and future retirement haven. The Chicago-based Luck family decided to undergo a significant remodel to create a home for entertaining. A large great room, master bath, and new carriage house were added. Accents of the South's team carefully worked through the details to achieve a cohesive design uniting the original home and the additions.
