After promising herself to find a permanent home in Atlanta if her TV show, The Gifted, which is filmed around the city, was picked up for a second season, actress Jamie Chung and her husband, Bryan Greenberg, did just that in 2018.
During their search for the right property, the couple came across a loft in Cabbagetown and knew it was the home they wanted.
Attracted to the Stacks Lofts space’s exposed brick walls, steel case windows, polished concrete floors, and 21-foot ceilings, the couple purchased the home, and Chung set out to make it their own.
She enlisted the aid of Creative Director Jessica McCarthy of Decorist, whom Chung had worked with previously on her Los Angeles home.
“The space is very industrial,” Chung told Curbed Atlanta. “The complex dates back to the late 1800s and was a cotton mill. So there is lots of metal, dark wood, brick, and concrete.
“When working with Decorist, the goal was to soften up the space and pick elevated, sophisticated pieces. It was also important to have a lot of seating options.”
Chung’s goal was to bring warmth and softness to the loft with what she calls a “touch of California vibes.”
That goal was achieved through a black and white palette reflected in the furnishings from Bed Bath & Beyond and artwork from Artfully Walls, coupled with warm touches like the woodwork behind the spiral staircase.
Of course, having a companion like Ewok, the couple’s miniature Schnauzer-Shih Tzu, also goes a long way in making a house a home.
