make it yours: rob brinson and jill sharp brinson

Photographer Rob Brinson and his wife, Jill Sharp Brinson (stylist, designer and creative director for Ballard Designs), lived in this gorgeous loft studio in Atlanta’s King Plow Art center for six years. Now the space is used as a getaway, and it accommodates friends and relatives. With over 1,000 panes of glass, tall ceilings and over 6,500 square feet of space, this industrial loft is a dream come true. The natural colors add to the crisp, clean feeling of the home. The amazing history of the building and the antiques that Jill and Rob have collected throughout the years truly make this space one of a kind. Please check out the original sneak peek for more images of this intriguing loft. — Lauren

    All seems rather tasteful, clinical and surface. Not a hint of sexiness. Just my opinion.

    1. Grace Bonney says:


      do all homes have to have sexiness?


  6. Ooh…fabulous. That bedroom looks sooooo luxurious! LOVE.

  7. I really love the floating bed layout and palette. There is lots of nice layering that can easily be reinterpreted with anyone choice of patterns etc. Fun!!

  8. I love the look of that first space! So warm and homey.

  9. Mmmm… I love everything about all of these palettes! @grace/shashinyc I happen to think it is very sex-ay
