'O at Home' Spring 2006 Tours
O, The Oprah Magazine | From the Spring 2006 issue of O, The Oprah Magazine
Nate unveils Colette's new family room, which he says is classic, comfortable and great for entertaining. Now, Colette says, "I can entertain people and sit around with my family, and we can cook together." The sofa is from Storehouse, and it's made with completely stain-resistant fabric. The chairs—also from Storehouse—add a pop of color to the room.
The new limestone mantle, which Nate bought from Siteworks, complements the design of Colette's dream kitchen. Nate didn't forget Colette's Southern roots—he added home accessories and floor-to-ceiling plantation blinds to bring a little bit of Birmingham indoors.
"What I love about this is that, this to me, is new Southern style," Nate says. "It's not frilly...chipped wood...lace doilies—all these things that we think of when we think of, like, Scarlett O'Hara. This is modern living now and gracefully in the South."
