Part farmhouse, part loft, you'd never guess this home is in Atlanta. But the vintage, French-inspired décor, cozy upstairs reading nook, and bath designed to feel like a trough in a rustic barn are just a few of its Southern charms. See photos of the Georgia home that has us drooling.

Renovated 1930s beams line the living-room ceiling, while steel shelves add an industrial touch to the bookcase. Natural reading light streams into the upstairs reading nook through a skylight on the left. Just imagine what a good hide-and-seek spot that nook would make!

That kitchen table has humbler origins than you would guess: it’s from Martha Stewart! Its original tile top was replaced with Georgian marble to give it the appearance of having been salvaged from a French patisserie. This kitchen doesn’t go too overboard with the whole rustic theme though—there’s still a television in the corner so you can follow along with Paula Deen.

White cowhide softens the look of the industrial table in this dining room, with large wooden cabinets in keeping with the color scheme: oyster shell, steel gray, and truffle.

A 22-foot-high window bathes the master bedroom and its four-poster bed in sunlight. The lush backyard can be seen through the window as well.

You may not see any books in this shot, but this is the home’s library, with walls covered in crewelwork fabric.

The bath is designed to feel like a trough in an old barn with the tap coming straight out of the wall and was a gift from Jill's husband.

Outside, in the garden, a stone faux-bois table is flanked by wicker garden chairs, all beneath the shade of a tree.

By the gravel driveway and stairs that lead up to the house, bushes are trimmed into spheres in an homage to Frenchwoman Nicole de Vésian and her famous home garden, La Louve, in Provence, France.

The outdoor sofas and ottomans are in keeping with the rest of the home’s rustic feel and color scheme, having been painted gray and upholstered in taupe to blend with the stone terrace.

Privet hedges in wooden tubs line the driveway from the wrought-iron gates to the house. Honey, I’m home!
