Benton Street Interior Part 3

May 27, 2020

Welcome back to the third and final part of the Benton Street Interior! If you're just now tuning in, here's Part 1 and Part 2. We really hope that you've enjoyed this photo tour and we'd love to hear your feedback at Now grab your cup of coffee and notebook, because it's time to explore the Benton Street Interior Basement! xo - Laurel

The Basement

We knew that we needed plenty of room for recreational activities, but also how important it was for the lower level to flow well with the upper level. Having plenty of windows to let in light helped with this. No dark, outdated basement vibes here! We painted the built-ins RH Graphite (Subtle Velvet Finish) and the fireplace mantle RH Stone (Subtle Velvet Finish) to help brighten up the space as well. We also love using this chic billiard lighting above the pool table. It's casual yet elegant!


The Wine Room

This has got to be one of our favorite spots in the home! We absolutely love designing wine rooms and helping our clients find the perfect storage solution for them. This one turned out beautifully! We used a herringbone tile pattern behind the wine racking and had the walls painted SW # 7671 On The Rocks (Egg Shell). Then we added a beautiful globe pendant and wall art that complimented the room perfectly.

The Kitchen

We recently mentioned on our Instagram that this kitchen was proof that your basement kitchen can be just as lovely as the one upstairs! Paint and updated fixtures can take any space to the next level. We painted the cabinets RH Graphite (Subtle Velvet Finish) and the walls and ceiling SW # 7671 On The Rocks. The pendant lights are from Circa Lighting, and the bar stools are from Burke Decor. Also, this photo really shows off the stunning Neptune LVT flooring (in Durango) we used throughout the basement.

The Keeping Room

This basement keeping room is modern transitional, done right! The subtle tones in the room made an excellent canvas for all the goodies we furnished it with. Here's a list: iron metal side table, nesting coffee table, faux olive tree, olive tree pot. We also loved layering the two rugs in this room. Try this if you want to add a hint of bohemian flair in a refined way.

The Breakfast Nook

A poker table and this large drum pendant from Rejuvenation worked perfectly for the basement breakfast nook.

The Playroom

Lastly, we have the basement playroom! Playrooms can be tricky, but like we mentioned before, great storage is key! We also found it helpful to stick to a neutral color scheme, but had fun through patterns and textures. This plus sign wallpaper added lots of personality to the room while this grey textured rug and grey comfy bean bag chairs helped ground the room.

Bonus: The Porch

We couldn't help but throw in this bonus feature of the patio! If you're not a fan of bright, tacky porch furniture (neither are we), then you'll love this one. If you haven't already guessed, we loved using Restoration hardware for this project. We especially enjoyed using them for this part of the home since they offer great outdoor pieces: large black lanterns, black and white lumbar pillows, black and white square pillows, iron coffee tableoutdoor sofa, lounge chairs. Also, this black fan is perfect for any modern porch design!


Well, that concludes the Benton Street IHome Photo Tour! We had such a wonderful time designing and remodeling this Johns Creek, Georgia home.
