Idle Hour Country Club, Macon, GA USA


This is not just another pretty façade.


This bungalow, circa 1957, is still looking beautiful several years after a total interior and exterior renovation. The "before" photo below shows where we started with the complete exterior re-design. We did extensive remodeling and architectural modifications with the interior as well, which are fabulous, but that's another post.

When SMR Interiors does a complete color palette design - interior or exterior - we consider the historical elements and architecture of your dwelling, its details - classic or contemporary - and how it all relates to your home or place of business, in order to create enduring and everlasting design.


SMR Interiors does not follow trends - this ensures that your home will be pleasing years after we update. We never copy; we are always innovating.

If you are thinking about painting the exterior of your home to increase its curb appeal or for a fresh change, but cannot decide which colors to choose, we can help settle your indecision.

SMR Interiors expertise is in color palette design. Suzanne has over 30 years experience and is highly skilled in color theory, metamerism (how light can change the appearance of a hue), and the undertones of pigments - all of which are essential when selecting and coordinating paint, stains, finishes, and materials.

Additional details such as lighting, landscaping, and styling your front entry help improve the aesthetics of your home's curb appeal, as well.

Our virtual or in-person consultations are complimentary and we offer flat fee packages for this service. SMR Interiors now offers E-Design, which gives our clients the opportunity to complete the project on their own timeline & within their budget parameters. SMR Interiors provides the design for you along with the sources for the furnishings, finishes & materials. You are in charge of initiating the project once you get the design details from us. This is a perfect option for out-of-town or budget-conscious clients who can implement the project when they are ready. It's all about the plan!

Below is an example of an exterior E-Design presentation.
