Renovations: The house was in bad shape, Piez said, and the majority of the structure had to be renovated, including the foundation, roof, ceilings, back deck, both bathrooms and kitchen. The West End Historic District is a designated historic area and listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Historic overlay regulations related to the design of the remodel had to be reviewed and approved by the Atlanta Urban Design Commission. She met with West End's historic preservation committee to understand the process and regulations. "Even though the majority of the house had to be updated, I attempted to preserve the elegance of the era of when the house was built and blend it with a modern touch," Piez said. She moved in during December 2018.
Cost of renovations: $270,000
Interior design style: Bohemian equestrian
Favorite interior design elements: Piez is a third-generation equestrian like her mother, which is why there is an emphasis on equestrian items and artwork of horses in the decor. Piez said she wanted to juxtapose a young, fun and feminine look with traditional furnishings and antiques.
Favorite outdoor elements: The vaulted back deck and the front porch.
