When Logan and Brenda Lineberry purchased their home in 2017, they were able to get in early enough in the building process to pick some finishes and details. Over the last few years, however, they’ve really made the space their own, mixing utility and style to create a home that fits their needs.

“I love function meeting things I love. It’s just the perfect balance,” said Brenda.

This philosophy applies to pieces like the antique sideboard in the Lineberrys’ kitchen, which adds a touch of charm to their contemporary house and also serves as a coffee station with storage. Another example is the custom chair in the den, which was made by Fabrics & Furnishings in Conyers with durable Crypton fabric. Even their Mannington vinyl flooring has the look of ash wood but is easy to clean and surprisingly durable.

“I have to have things that function and are not just pretty. I want it to be both. I don’t want to have a museum that I live in,” she said.

In fact, their main living area itself is an example of style and utility, with its open flow and soothing tones. The space is chic and inviting, but its open-concept layout gives Logan and Brenda the ability to be in the same space while doing different tasks.

“My husband bakes a lot. He makes pizzas and bread, and he rolls out the bread on that big slab of quartz, and we’re in the same room now,” said Brenda. “In the last house we lived in, it was completely separate.”

The new layout works much better for the couple, who can now spend time together while they both work in whatever way they wish.

“I just walk around and say ‘I love my house,’” said Brenda. “It’s just perfect.”
