Man, I can’t wait for spring. This past Saturday morning I wanted to go for a run, too cold. I thought about working in the yard or washing the car. Again, too cold. But, what I really wanted to do was to attend an architectural lecture presented by the ICA&A and held at “The Little Chapel”. However, I had already decided to pass on this opportunity so that I could … Read More The Soul of the Home
As you may know, I’ve been knee-deep in getting situated with the new company and all. And, it’s been a blast. I suppose that last Friday would mark the completion of my first full week on the job. While driving home, enjoying the gorgeous Atlanta afternoon, the iPhone playlist pulled up an all-time old favorite.
Greetings and Happy New Year! I apologize for being so slack on this site over the past couple of weeks. But, to my defense, I’ve been a little busy lately. With the holidays, visiting family and landing a new job and all; it’s been crazy. In case you haven’t heard, I joined on with Trewin Homes about two weeks ago and am having the time of … Read More Unsung Masters
Wow, the time has just been flying by these days. My apologies for such a lapse between posts here. All I can say is distractions, distractions…far too many distractions. Well, the weather has definitely turned. There’s a deep chill in the air. Trees are shedding their foliage. And the night is descending upon us before we even arrive home from work.
I’ve been wanting to write a post about covered back porches for some time now. Ever since the weather has turned, I enjoy every moment that I get out on ours. We are very fortunate in that, even though we live in a subdivision, we have a very secluded lot. Our home is flanked on the left by a fairway with a beautiful stretch of
Last Friday, I attended an event hosted by Hansgrohe where they introduced some of the latest designs to their Axor line and gave some background about the designers who have provided so much of the inspiration. The international team of All-Stars is comprised of Philippe Starck, Antonio Citterio, Jean-Marie Massaud, Patricia Urquiola, Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec and Pheonix Design (Tom Schonherr and Andreas Haug). It was really a cool presentation, yet,
If you haven’t seen it yet, please check out this really exceptional post by Limestone and Boxwoods. In it, James has done a phenomenal job in illustrating how impactful a design detail like fluting can be when crafting a genuinely magnificent Home. I am truly appreciative to not only the viewpoint; but also, the level of observation. Yet, even as good as this piece is, … Read More So Eloquently Stated
The other night, I had the privilege of attending an absolutely amazing event. Beacham and Company had a Reveal Party for the latest edition of their publication called “The Series” coupled with a celebration of their 5 year anniversary. If you’re not Following these guys, you have too. If you’re not a Fan yet of the company, go check them out. There is no way that … Read More Why I Love “This World”!
Can anyone tell me who designed / built this one? It has always been a Gem on the Burton shoreline. We would pass it on our way to Anchorage Marina and I would sit back and relish in its splendor. The way it sits out on the point in the noblest of fashion. With an air of stateliness, elegance and just plain striking beauty. And then the … Read More While We’re Talkin About the Lake
Man ‘o man, this has been a ridiculously crazy week. Sorry for being a little slack with the posts, it’s just been a scramble to get everything done between work and family. With that being said, as I begin to decompress, my mind transcends to a better place. And the cool evening breezes are helping me get there. I suppose that with the changing of the … Read More Kicked Back and Dreaming
You know what… I love Twitter. It’s crazy to say and I know that there was a time when you would have never heard me utter such a thing. But, let me try to explain. To me, the design world is incredible and the local talent here in Atlanta is through the roof. As it happens to be, Twitter has proven itself to be the quickest and easiest way to … Read More Continuing to Amaze
In following up on my latest post; entitled “The One” and which highlighted my all time favorite kitchen, I thought that I would dedicate the next two blogs to the close runner-ups. This one here is the product of the collaborative effort of William Litchfield Residential Designs and Jacquelynne P. Lanham Designs. I just happened to come across it while roaming through the AH&L archives. … Read More Stately Defined
