Atlanta Grant Park Home Tour: Exotic Outdoor Oasis

Kristie Nicodemus and John Sitton renovated their bungalow house in Atlanta's Grant Park neighborhood and spared no detail in the design.  John is a designer/ builder with Dimensionworks, Inc. and used his expertise in the renovation.  Kristie has a terrific creative eye and was instrumental in the style elements, too. 

For a tour of the inside of their lovely home, visit here.   

Today we're taking the tour outdoors to their inviting backyard space. 
This full sized porch swing is my absolute favorite.  (I've been sharing it on instagram for days and folks have gone crazy over it)!

I could easily spend a lazy Sunday reading a good book cozied up on this swing.

Kristie and John worked together to determine the best use of their back yard.  They introduced elements that are essential to entertaining.  There are plenty of cozy chairs clustered together for social gatherings.  Festive lights hang above the large dining table and a full outdoor kitchen makes the perfect barbeque setting.


Does this space look familiar to you?  It may be because it was featured in Do It Yourself magazine in the Summer 2010 Issue.  (Writer and Producer, Lisa Mowry | Photos by Emily Followill)

Once again, thank you to Kristie and John for opening their home to me!

What elements do you find critical for back yard entertaining?
