Home tour- A charming classic home in Hickory, North Carolina!

This beautiful 1947 Georgian Colonial home belongs to Bob Williams, the co-founder of furniture manufacturer Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams. The renovation of this home took three and a half years with major overhauling, painstakingly refurbished by Bob Williams and Stephen Heavner. The results? A colorful yet calming home abundant with conversation pieces and collections. Bob intended to keep the interior to be somewhat reflective of the period of the house, keeping its traditional roots while making it fresh and modern.

The classic black and white entry.

Vintage pieces mix with contemporary furnishings in the living room.

The wet bar in the media room.

A collection of vintage chairs.

The moody den with various collectibles.

 The mantel sports a collection of Statue of Liberty and Eiffel Tower figurines.

An intimate dining area.

The beautiful classic kitchen with a modern touch.

 A vintage stove.

A dry pantry.

A sophisticated and masculine master bedroom.

A stunning marble tub in the master bathroom.

An additional storage space in the master bath.


My favorite rooms are the colorful den and the classic and updated kitchen. Which are yours?

  2. It's not quite my style, but my god the tilework on the floors is amazing. Super clean work in the entry where the it curves to mimic the balustrade, and also in the master bathroom.

  25. Love the black and white entry with a screen door. My next house is definitely going to have a screen door. I love the den with the collection of Eiffel Towers and Statue of Liberties...makes me want to gather mine and display them, sadly my kids always chose the ones in metallic green, etc. Love the dry pantry too! the hardware on that door is amazing.
