Amy Vermillion is known throughout the Southeast for the eye for detail that makes each of the interiors she designs so unique and fresh. She feels equally at ease designing traditional or modern interiors and uses that inspiration to create beautiful, layered spaces by focusing on architectural finishes with beautiful detailing.  

This space was part of Vermillion’s breakfast room before a recent kitchen renovation she did. Vermillion found herself wanting a more informal open space in the house, so she removed the wall between the kitchen and old formal dining room and decided to create a space she’d always wanted—a seating nook where she could curl up with a book.

“It is my little sanctuary and one of my favorite spots in the house now,” she shares. “I love to sit quietly in the early morning and answer my emails, read, or plan meals by going through my cookbooks on the shelves nearby. When I open the windows, I can smell the jasmine planted on a trellis underneath the bay and can listen to the birds in the morning.The light is beautiful—I always feel better after spending time in my little nook.”
