More Than a Splash of Color

Focal walls transform an empty space to a unique place

Alex Egan, real estate professional with Sotheby’s International Realty, says she’s seen firsthand the growth in Chamblee. Her father has been a small business owner in the area for more than 40 years, and she recalls around the age of 13, helping him in the storefront of his auto business after school and during summers. “Over the years I have experienced Chamblee’s transformation, and it’s quite impressive,” Alex says.

As a real estate professional, Alex used her tools, skills, knowledge, and more to design this three-bedroom, two-bathroom ranch home that’s a short walk to Keswick Park into a space that features focal walls. The result transforms it from what Alex describes as an "empty space into a place."

Alex explains that focal walls, also known as feature or accent walls, are one of the significant design trends today. “They provide a reprieve from the monotonous, singularly hued sheetrock by evoking a different feeling altogether with both tone and texture…The walls in this house are giving off all the midcentury modern vibes with a color palette of moody, smokey hues paired with white and pops of deep yellow. The layered aesthetic of the wall designs in this house gives off the sophisticated and mod feeling characteristic of the midcentury modern style,” she says. While the bedrooms and bathrooms are privately located, Alex says the main body of the house is open, so the focal walls also function to divide the vast spaces into clear delineated zones.
