You know, I may be a little weird. I recognize that. I own that fact. You see, I was just out back opening the pool and taking great satisfaction in the process. I find comfort in the act of restoring order to that chaotic mess. Enjoying the evening in a tranquil, restful, easy frame of mind. Just three days ago, it was a hibernating, … Read More Opening Season !
Ha ~ This one totally cracked me up. You know how in my last post, I talked about the elusive masterpieces tucked away on gracious Atlantan Lots. Architectural gems that are hidden all around town. Beautifully sculpted dream homes with magnificent detailing designed by abundantly talented artisans. Well, I’ve been intrigued with this one from the road for some time now. You’d think that … Read More What a Trip
Welcome to Grand Ol’ Atlanta. There’s no other place like it. 75 to 100 years ago, the outlining boundary of the city was acre after acre of rolling country side. Gentleman farms for the families of the business tycoons who pioneered this burgeoning new town. It was not uncommon at all for a family to build their estate on a 60+ acre piece while … Read More Home ~ Forever and a Day
Hey ~ we’ll get straight to the meat with this one. It’s Thanksgiving weekend and I’m having a wonderful time down in Macon, GA. Enjoying the season with the extended family and soaking in the beautiful weather. As with a lot of family get-togethers though, some of the conversations have settled in around current events. All the basic junk that you hear over and over. Kind of a steady … Read More Charge On!
Well… all I can say is, I hate it that you missed this one. What an amazing home to run through. Evening was falling; and yet, the entire crew was converging fast. Filled with anticipation. Darting through Atlanta’s traffic with a single purpose in mind. I knew that we would have a great turn out, but, I was truly impressed when I turned the corner onto Andrews … Read More Highlights From The Home On The Hill
Well ~ It’s that time of year. The holiday season is upon us and a ton of cool events are comin’ down the pipes. Stay plugged in here and I’ll feed you as many as I can. Let me start out these postings with one of my favorite groups: The Insitute of Classical Architecture and Art. The other week, we had a guest lecture and … Read More Here’s A Twofer
I Love to find patterns. Patterns in the marketplace. Patterns in emerging developments. Patterns in people’s behaviors. The crazy thing is though, so often I fail to see any of the patterns in my own life. While driving from one project to another last week, I began to connect a few of the dots. You see, I’ve never considered myself to be defined by one single architectural style. In … Read More Which one would you pick?
Hey All ~ Quick post here about an outstanding event that I went to last Thursday evening. It was the Atlanta Symphony Associations Decorators Showhouse. These are always incredible tours, not only because of the unsurpassed talents of the participants involved, but also, because of the spectacular venues which they are able to showcase. And this one was nothing less than amazing. We were lucky enough to actually have a private guided tour … Read More Well Worth the Ticket
So, I’ve been sitting on a post for a while now, but, hadn’t been able to pull it all together. While watching the events unfold in the news with North Korea, the timing seemed to be right. What a miserable, pathetic, impotent attempt at proving something to the world. The worst part though was when the “State” run media outlet made the announcement of the failed launch with … Read More Touches of Blue
Here’s one of my All~Time favorite Homes, in one of my All~Time favorite communities. The beautiful enclave of Brookhaven. I happen to have the good fortune of driving by this beaut everyday as we have a new home going up just down the road. I Love the patio doors, the full size shutters, the rhythm of segmented arches, the swooped gable, the motor … Read More It’s a Radiation Vibe Thing
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
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”!
