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.

A rustic table with a custom, streamlined banquette created the cozy breakfast room the family desired. A fun, horizontal, striped … Read More
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.

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 : 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. … Read More
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.

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 … Read More
