Atlanta Stone Cottage with Contemporary Charm from Castro Design Studio

Atlanta Stone Cottage with Contemporary Charm from Castro Design Studio 01


This stone cottage looks like it almost came from the pages of a fairy tale — but it’s a very contemporary project from Castro Design Studio in Atlanta, Georgia. As you enter, note the polished walnut floors and the pristine of white walls and arched doorways, a telltale sign of a vintage home. From the central staircase you can see the dining room with its comfortable, upholstered chairs, surrounded by framed art and fronting a pale oak finished table and side buffet. A family room is restful brown, cream, and pale gold, with traditional chairs and a multi-drawer dresser. Blinds can be lowered behind curtains, and over the windows on the double doors leading out to a second “family room” — a sunny porch with stone fireplace, deep wicker chairs in shades of dark blue and white, and a ceiling fan.


Upstairs, the master bedroom features a gray padded headboard that nicely sets off the deep mahogany bed frame and matching dressers. Here, too, are multi-paned windows that let in abundant light and air — with their own sets of blinds. You’ll find a soaking tub and a large shower in the bathroom, alongside a black and silver dresser and matching square mirror. And, lastly, this house makes entertaining easy — in the small parlor with its cozy seating and still life decorations, or in the eat-in kitchen with its center island. Any cook would be thrilled with the stainless steel appliances, especially the double fridge and freezer — and there’s plenty of both storage and counter work space for guests to join in. So this is the Martina home: a charming cottage with plenty of space for family…and friends.
