One of the best things about living in Midtown Atlanta is that you can be equidistant from a vibrant restaurant scene and 100-year-old historic homes, all on foot. For that reason, I love walking around Midtown’s historic district. There’s always a colorful Craftsman or, in this case, a green Colonial Revival home that I look forward to passing on my daily jaunts. I’ve always wondered what the interiors of these homes would look like. Thanks to AI image generation, I can finally translate my imagination to paper and share that inspiration with you! Even better, I’ve found items similar to those I created with AI generated interiors, so you can try recreating these looks at home.

First things first, let’s kick it off with my FAVORITE house on Piedmont, this gorgeous green colonial revival by architect Walter Downing. Built in 1891, the Nicolson House, always stops me in my tracks. Maybe because it’s green, or maybe because I can see while the exterior is historic and ornate, the interiors have a little nod of modernism peeking through the giant windows.
When I asked AI to generate some images, I had to start with my favorite room in every house- the half bath. Cue the dramatic wallpaper and console sink.
Then as every good home tour goes, we move into the living room.
I really think I had the most fun “designing” the little kids rooms. Look at how darling this little girls room turned out? Side note, where do I get someone to make me a canopy like that?
If you have ever visited the Swan house in Atlanta, this laundry room reminds me of the scullery in it. The green is so cheerful and I love how the tile really keeps it retro.
I’m not kidding when I say this may be a dream kitchen! I would look for reasons to wash dishes if just to get to look out those windows.
Could you imagine the dinner parties in this dining room? I may need to find a custom furniture builder to remake those cane chairs.
And finally the nursery- selfishly created because of the inspiration from my little boy’s nursery, but I truly love how it turned out in the end.
As a bonus for coming to this post, here is a playroom I asked it to mock up. The ceiling is a bit too grand but wow would this be an inspiring place to let out some steam as a little kid!
What I love about today’s technology, is that if you can write it, AI can generate it. I know a lot of people may be interested in how I generated this prompt and what I used, and I’m not here to gatekeep! I pay to use Midjourney to generate all of these images and below you will find my prompt structure.
