Home tour- A painter's lake home in Atlanta!

Atlanta fine art painter, Dawne Rawlet Hall decided to purchase a cozy, 1930s ramshackle cabin and turned it into a summer getaway home. However, the cabin had dark-paneled walls and layout issues. To brighten up the cabin, she used gallons of white paint and mainly white and cream furnishings. She then hired a custom home builder to resolve the layout. For the finishing touches, she enlisted help from her friend, interior designer Shawn Broaddus. The results? A bright and charming lake home perfect for a family of six! Now, let's take a tour of this beautiful retreat, shall we?
