To decorate and balance the home with all the artistic and sentimental treasures they amassed on their travels, the couple also turned to Everett’s mother, owner of Avis Everett Interiors in Cumming. “She integrated our love for the colorful and the eclectic with the more traditional pieces we own,” said Everett, who transformed the space into a peaceful, bohemian living space. “All the art we have and everything we brought from our travels, we wanted to use in our space to tell our family’s story.”
