When it comes to buzzy homes around Atlanta, locals have plenty to chat about thanks to the impressive pads owned by The Real Housewives of Atlanta ladies and their pals and inner circle. And it turns out two of those homes have a connection to Buying It Blind interior designer, Michel Smith Boyd (more from him on his design tips above). You see, he had a hand in helping to craft homes owned by Shereé Whitfield and Marlo Hampton.
Yes, Michel was the style guru working with Shereé to make the Chateau Shereé everything it is today. Previously, the RHOA alum opened up to The Daily Dish about her home. "It's contemporary. Kind of contemporary, but with a hint of old Hollywood glamour. I put a lot of time, effort, and definitely labor into the house and it shows," she said of the abode.
In another chat with The Daily Dish, she elaborated a bit more about exactly what she needed to make the posh pad feel like home: "I wanted to make sure that it was large enough to accommodate, 'cause I have a huge family and friend base. So I just wanted to make sure it was able to accommodate everybody and so that's my favorite room," she noted of the kitchen.
As for Marlo's home, well, that equally-fab home mirrors the woman who owns it, as she explained to The Daily Dish previously: "The Hamptons, my home, it's just Marlo. It's sexy. You have black flowers, you have black candles. It's just a groovy, eclectic style. Like, you don't know what you're going to get. You're going to come over here and see a tree branch. You might have a ham hanging over here if I could've gotten that blinged-out ham from Barcelona, that would have been amazing," she described. "So my home is just all over the place, like me. But it's amazing. It's a piece of art."
