Photos: Empty nesters embrace new lifestyle in historic Roswell 0 Previous Gallery Next Gallery 1 / 23 When Bill and Anne Storey moved from Marietta, they brought some antiques and heirlooms, many of which were placed in the hearth room. With a floor-to-ceiling stone fireplace and custom-built barn doors, the antiques create a room that Anne Storey says is reflective of historic Roswell. Text by Lori Johnston and Kelsey E. Green/Fast Copy News Service. 2 / 23 The home's exterior complies with the Goulding historic association's rules and regulations about new builds in the area, making sure it fits with the look of the community. The home's 6,000 square feet includes a basement, four bedrooms and 4 /12 baths. 3 / 23 A mirror propped on a console table with a lamp creates a welcoming vignette in the Roswell home. Placed near the entry, small trinkets like pumpkin and pinecone accessories can easily be changed with the season. 4 / 23 The stone fireplace centers the living room's design, which includes stained ceiling beams that give the room a warm, rustic charm. Justin Powers of Powers Building Solutions created the beams and mantels in the home. 5 / 23 Mohawk Artiquity hardwood floors, which run through most of Anne and Bill Storey's new Roswell home, have a wide plank with rustic coloring. Bill Storey works at Mohawk, and the couple chose planks in Medieval Oak. 6 / 23 When Bill and Anne Storey left their home in Marietta, they considered bringing their dining room table. However, the table just didn't fit with the transitional interiors in their new Roswell home or the sheer size of the dining room. With a new, longer table, Anne looks forward to hosting Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners for her three children. 7 / 23 A barn door, custom-built by Justin Powers, separates the kitchen from the walk-in pantry and matches a similar barn door in the living room, creating flow throughout the home. 8 / 23 The kitchen features Wellborn cabinets with crown molding, an oversized island, textured granite from DalTile and KitchenAid Architect Series appliances. The builder was FrontDoor Communities. 9 / 23 A pearl string chandelier by Savoy House from Progressive Lighting gives the breakfast nook a modern take on old style elegance. Greenery on the table is an easy way to add a splash of color. The Huntington House banquette and chairs are from Issis and Sons of Birmingham, Ala. 10 / 23 Like the rest of the home, the upstairs sitting room contains neutral tones with light blue accents. A gold tray on the the blue tufted ottoman gives the room a little shine. 11 / 23 Older pieces, like the antique chair, are countered by light transitional furniture, purchased at Issis and Sons in Birmingham, Ala. Detailed design in the antique chair is echoed in the carved wooden artwork that hangs on the adjacent wall. 12 / 23 Textured bedding with varying shades of blue pillows introduces subtle color to the mostly neutral room, painted in Balanced Beige by Sherwin-Williams. The bench at the end of the bed creates a comfy spot. 13 / 23 The master bedroom is layered with texture and charm. The couple selected an upholstered headboard from the Nebraska Furniture Mart, and vintage-looking Hooker nightstands finished in a driftwood tone from Issis and Sons in Birmingham, Ala. "The nightstands were just a whole different look for us," Anne Storey said. 14 / 23 Double doors open into the bathroom to show off the Crystorama Solaris collection chandelier from Progressive Lighting, which is the centerpiece for the master bath. Its uncommon design is echoed in the shape of the tile in the shower. So as not to distract from the unique design elements, the homeowners painted the bathroom in Sherwin-Williams' Versatile Gray. 15 / 23 The freestanding oval tub, by Barclay Radcliff, is a modern take on the old fashioned clawfoot. The style of the Moen Arris faucet creates the illusion of an antique pump. 16 / 23 An antique-style vanity and mirror create an aged, rustic look in the upstairs guest bathroom. 17 / 23 Wicker furniture is a staple for many Southern porches, decks and patios, including the Storeys'. 18 / 23 Retractable screens by Peachtree Blinds of Atlanta help cut the sun's glare and make the outdoor space more enjoyable during the hot Georgia summers. 19 / 23 One of Anne Storey's favorite spaces in her Roswell home is the back porch. Accordion doors open the kitchen and living area to this space. 20 / 23 One of Bill and Anne Storey's biggest projects was finishing the basement in their new home. With the help of Matthew Barile from Barile Construction and Design, and Justin Powers of Powers Building Solutions, the couple customized their basement with this bar. 21 / 23 A dark wood table and chairs complement the sleek, sophisticated look that homeowners Anne and Bill Storey created in their basement bar area. The orb chandelier from Crystorama's Solaris collection, found at Progressive Lighting, pairs with Old World-style candlesticks for a mix of antique and modern pieces. 22 / 23 A backyard pool was a must-have for the homeowners, and they picked this one by Artisan Pools. 23 / 23 In 2016, Bill Storey, an executive for Mohawk, and his wife, Anne, moved into their home in Roswell, near restaurants and shops on Canton Street. The home has 6,000 square feet, including the finished basement, four bedrooms and 4 1/2 baths.
