Spring, Spitzmiller, APC and The Grant Mansion

What a magnificent day this Saturday turned out to be.  It started with some good times, hanging out with the tennis crowd and capturing a swift victory.  It wasn’t me though.  I think I need to give almost all of the credit here to Ted.  {Who, by the way, runs an exceptional company called North Georgia Windows.  If you ever need to get some windows replaced, give Ted … Read More Spring, Spitzmiller, APC and The Grant Mansion

What’s the Thread

The other night, as my wife and I were spending a quiet evening reading, she handed me the latest edition of Southern Living stating that I had to take a look because  just about everybody I ever speak about is mentioned somewhere in the issue.  And sure enough, it was chock full of local talent.  So, I dove right in. 

It’s a Radiation Vibe Thing

  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

Now We’re Singing

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.

Unsung Masters

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

Embers of the Heart

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.

Character Is Always The Differentiater

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

Challenging my Notions

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,

So Eloquently Stated

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

Bringing it Back Together

Wow, it certainly seems that the seasons are simply flying by these days.   As for me and my crew, we continue to rush from one appointment to the next, one event to another and one ‘to-do’ to yet an additional ensuing ‘to-do’.  It is just crazy; bordering on chaos.  It also reminds me of how much I appreciate order, tidiness, balance and composure.  And, how much I would like to … Read More Bringing it Back Together

Why I Love “This World”!

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”!

Kicked Back and Dreaming

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
