It’s easy to get swept away by the grandeur of the newest Woodham Creek Model Homes at Reynolds Lake Oconee, which sit impressively overlooking the eighth fairway of The Creek Club golf course. Spacious covered porches and one-of-a-kind, cedar carriage-style garage doors lead the visitor inside, where they are welcomed into the elevated living space with vaulted ceilings, stone fireplaces, and state-of-the-art appliances. But look closer and you’ll see supporting details that are crucial to tying it all together. Selected by Alicia Mooney-Macchia, of Alicia Mooney Interiors, these subtle touches are as important to each home as their overall design, little wonders that help define luxury living at Reynolds.

“The blue slate color of the cabinets adds timeless character to the kitchen,” says Mooney-Macchia. “And, since the kitchen is the heart of the home, this color was the foundation for the palette of the entire design.”

A bold color in the sitting room makes the room feel open and welcoming while being an extension of the kitchen, an integral transition in the open-floor plan.

Entering the kitchen, it’s impossible not to be drawn to the canopy hood, a casual—yet unique—feature that defines this modern kitchen.

Lights mounted on mirrors can help keep a bathroom simple and clean while offering a final, cohesive look. These fixtures balance industrial with modern.

Design Tips with Alicia Mooney

Since starting Alicia Mooney Interiors in 2002, Mooney-Macchiaa has worked on both residential and commercial assignments in Atlanta, Lake Oconee, Charleston, and Dallas. Here are some of her basics to creating cohesive designs:

  • The only design “rule” I believe in is “less is more.” I always start with a blank canvas and do what feels right for the space.
  • The first piece I like to begin a room design with are the fabrics. They’re almost always my inspiration.
  • Repeating the feel from one room to the next can create a sense of balance throughout the home.
  • Use products and companies that fit your style of design. Trust in yourself and do what feels right.
