CLOCKWISE FROM TOP: The Chinese scenic wallpaper in the dining room, hand-painted in the 18th-century style, is from Gracie. Dodson's choice of the relatively delicate starburst mirror? "I didn't want anything too massive — the wallpaper is so awesome." The pair of lamps is fashioned from wooden architectural fragments. Lacquer buffet from Shabby Slips. Wallpaper in the powder room is Twig's Corteccia — which means "bar" in Italian — in a custom color. The petrified-wood-look sink was found in the field at Round Top. Designer Julie Dodson on a settee from MAI, which was also the source of the candle stand and stool. The 19th-century Genoese chandelier in the entry foyer was purchased at Round Top from Brian Kelly of Atlanta's B. Kelley Antiques. The mirror is from Area. An antique daybed in the family room, from Shabby Slips, plays off John Saladino's asymmetrical Santa Barbara sofa. The antique French fireplace surround is from Chateau Domingue. The middle daughter "is just a fashion queen, a girly girl. She has every issue of Teen Vogue ever," the designer says. For her bedroom wall, Dodson had her initials embroidered onto painted linen panels. A pillow is covered in Osborne and Little's geometric Balyan fabric. Bed linens by Ann Gish. A pair of Baker Christal chandeliers lights up the kitchen. The stools were fashioned from Brace and Black acrylic side tables, with cushions of Lelievre's Zibeline faux leather.
