A Comfortable, Colorful Cave for Paleo People in Atlanta

by Annie Werbler

Bicoastal design duo Holly Conlan and Gabriela Eisenhart of Wake + Loom met Sarah and Pete Servold, owners of Pete’s Paleo, as they were relocating back to Atlanta, GA from San Francisco, CA. The family, along with three-year-old daughter Lois, was in need of some help pulling their next house togetherΒ β€” a 1940s whitewashed brick stunner in the quiet yet centrally-located neighborhood of Virginia-Highland. To start, Holly and Gabriela focused mainly on the family room, dining room, kitchen, patio, and master bedroom, lightening up walls and making the space feel more open. Sarah and Pete wanted a modern, elegant home with a bit of a mid-century twist, and the designers gave them a stylish facelift all in three months’ time.

With entertaining and kids’ considerations at the top of the Servolds’ must-have list, Holly and Gabriela combined vintage and contemporary pieces with lots of client Sarah’s own colorful photography, inspiring certain bold color palettes of decorative accents. Lighting choices throughout the space create a unique energy fusing new and old (but not prehistoric) together, resulting in a thoroughly modern abode for these primal entrepreneurs. β€”Annie
