Atlanta Interior Design
Distinctive interiors, European flair

Old World Design is a full-service Atlanta interior design company specializing in adapting traditional European designs for the way Atlantans live today. If you love the styles of Paris, Provence, Rome, Venice, Tuscany and other great European places, Diane Edwards’ team at Old World Design can help you use them to create distinctive rooms that suit your lifestyle now.

Our projects run the gamut of size, style, and budget. Some involve exterior architectural design, or designing a room or exterior “garden room” from scratch in consultation with you. Others involve helping you find the perfect touches to add to your evolving style and tone.

For example, on a recent project, we used a striking set of antique doors and accompanying trim to create a modern interior doorway and coordinating dining room panel treatments that were distinctive, solid and easy to live with.

Whatever the scale, however, the goal is always the same: exceptional designs inspired by, and inspiring to, you. We work closely with you from start to finish – from design conception to project management and final installation.

The interior design process and you


The process of interior design should begin with your own personal tastes and the way you live now. At Old World Design, we start by getting to know you, understanding how you live, and understanding your goals. Then we identify your parameters: Which room or rooms are we dealing with? What’s on your “must have” list? Where do you feel like you need the most help? What’s your budget?

Next, we present concepts and a direction for getting started. Ideally, this presentation is more of a road map for discovery than a set-in-stone plan. This approach provides us with a guide when evaluating furnishings, fabrics, wall coverings, architectural details and decorative items. It’s a flexible approach that allows us to incorporate and feature truly outstanding pieces to create the look you want.

Typically, the next step is shopping: visits to furniture and furnishings showrooms and antique dealers to “try on” styles, environments and signature pieces. Here’s where the magic happens! Diane’s relationships and knowledge put thousands of options at your fingertips – and recommend ways to make them come together into an integrated environment. As you’ll see, there’s nothing quite like choosing a key piece up-close-and-personal. Often, this step in the process reveals that once-in-a-lifetime selection that can make your space truly unique. Diane prides herself on her ability to incorporate these unique finds into the design of a space, complementing them with an eclectic mix of complementary features and surfaces.

Now for the nitty-gritty! Once the decisions are made, we handle procurement, installation and tracking against a master schedule. We oversee deliveries, inspecting them for accuracy and quality control. We also supervise and sign off on painting, window coverings, wallpapering, electrical, appliance installation, carpentry, stonework, plumbing and more. If an architect is also involved, we review plans and coordinate interior design work with any structural changes that are required. In short, we make it all come together for you.

Last, the final walkthrough. Old World Design completes each project with a “closing ceremony”. It’s a time to relish and celebrate the final results – so you can begin enjoying your new environment!
