hat makes your home yours?

Jim Newman | Jnewman@LifestylePubs.com

My home is full of our collections of books, vintage games, ancient Chinese checkerboards and cool old gumball machines. One of my favorite pieces of furniture is an antique Chinese trousseau cabinet we picked up when we lived in Hong Kong. The merchant explained that the bride's family would pack her personal items and collected home furnishings in this cabinet and her brothers would carry it to the happy couple's new home.  We use it as a bar cabinet storing glassware and booze...perhaps my own personal trousseau?

We should have introduced the athlete in our story about Buckhead Fight Club. Meet 21 year old Deonte Brown, trained by retired world champion and women's boxing hall of fame inductee Terri Moss at Buckhead Fight Club. On July 1 Deonte won his pro debut with a unanimous decision over Stephon McIntyre, a fighter with veteran experience.Deonte brings the excitement of athleticism, slick boxing style and southpaw stance to the ring which combine to create trouble for his opponents. After an amateur career that included  Georgia Golden Gloves and Title World Championship wins, Deonte is focused on his professional career. He devotes 6 days a week to training, at least four hours a day. Training includes bag work, mitts, circuit training, and calisthenics every day. Away from the gym, Deonte is a family man, enjoying time with his son and daughter, reading in the library and spending time with his friends. BuckheadFightClub.com

The recently renovated Sotherly Hotel opened their doors in August, unveiling the newly added rooftop pool, a contemporary upgrade to their 246 guest rooms, as well as a custom SCAD art gallery and two restaurants, rich in Savannah traditions. Chef-driven 1540 Room and Edgar’s Proof & Provision, feature flavorful dishes and craft cocktails daily. Guest can enjoy the “back porch”, a beautifully shaded porch that embodies the true atmosphere of the South where visitors can relax and unwind after a day in the city. With the charming views of Savannah, the reimagined modern feel and the Southern hospitality at every corner, it’s no surprise the DeSoto Savannah remains an icon of the South and a favorable destination since 1890.

Artist’s Palette

T

he invitational exhibit entitled “40 over 40” offers innovative perspective on creativity and age. Presented by Chamblee's new art

venue, EBD4, the exciting show premiers with an opening celebration November 11, and runs through December 15.  Beginning with the Pop Art movement, a prevalent cultural misunderstanding promoted the mistaken notion that new and visionary ideas belong only to the young. The truth is, as artists age the chances increase for brilliant new expressions with a marked richness in their art. The premise of the “40 over 40” invitational exhibit is to show that fresh ideas and talent come from people of all ages, and that artists with decades of life experience have even more to offer. "40 over 40" presents works by Atlanta–area artists age 40 and over, whose careers range from newly discovered to seasoned. Under the curatorial efforts of Elyse Defoor of Buckhead, the exhibit offers fresh counterbalance to the art-world ageism faced by many artists during their later years. "When considering the impressive art made by famous older artists later in life such as Georgia O’Keeffe, and the many wellknown mature contemporary artists such as Kara Walker, Anish Kapoor, and 100 year-old Carmen Herrera, this show champions artists who continue to take risks, explore, and do the work that they are meant to do,” says curator Defoor.

“40 over 40” Exhibit @ EBD4 Gallery 2382 Chamblee Tucker Rd., Chamblee 404.667.1902 ebd4@bellsouth.net EBD4.com Opening Reception: Saturday, Nov 11 6:30 - 9:30 p.m. On exhibit through December 15 Gallery hours: Saturdays, Noon – 6 p.m. and by appointment

very now and then, BuckHaven Lifestyle likes to take the temperature of the real estate market.  This month in our HOME issue, we

asked Angela Cashion of Atlanta Fine Homes Sotheby's International Realty to share a few notable listings at different price points. 

A LITTLE ABOUT ANGELA BH: Why did you choose this market for your business? AC: I chose this market because it’s  familiar – not only professionally, but personally. In

addition to Atlanta Fine Homes Sotheby’s International Realty’s extraordinary marketing, resources and expertise, my business is also, in part, a referral-based operation. Many of my friends live the metro area, as do I, and this helps to further establish my local awareness. These factors, combined with many others, make Atlanta a wonderful market to be in. BH: Where do you like to grab lunch, cocktails and dinner with friends?  AC: For cocktails with clients, friends and family, I love stopping by Yebo Beach Haus. The

atmosphere – year round with Yebo Ski Haus in the winter – is inviting, personal and always entertaining. When it comes to dining, Kyma is one of my favorite Atlanta eateries. Its lively environment (ideal for casual dining and larger parties) and tasteful selection of Mediterranean classics are phenomenal – not to mention the amazing staff. Two of my favorite dishes created by Chef Pano are his famous grilled octopus and the incredible baby beet salad.  BH: Giving back is important to our readers. Tell us about how you engage and contribute. AC: I like to stay active within my community. Currently, I hold a host position for

Northside Hospital’s events committee benefiting leukemia and women’s cancers. This year, we’re looking forward to two fundraisers: Night Before the Harvest and Wine, Women and Shoes. I am also active with Children’s Health Care of Atlanta and am currently working on the annual Christmas Luncheon.  Find Angela at Atlanta Fine Homes Sotheby's International Realty, 3290 Northside Pkwy NW 404.423.5245.

MODERN LOVE WITH JEFFREY BAKER ARTICLE SUE G. COLLINS

“T

he people who choose to live in modern homes are people who want to simplify, appreciate understated elegance, and are seeking to gain balance.”

Jeffrey Baker is a Buckhead architect who believes in modern

design as a lifestyle and recently completed a project on Hopkins Terrace in Lavista Park. “We find the majority of our clients own companies or are executives with extensive demands so when they finally get home they need low maintenance, ergonomic spaces that help them relax,” he says. This builder’s home has five bedrooms over nearly 7,000 sq. ft. on a half acre.  The home is tucked into the hillside, wrapping around a serene courtyard and pool terrace. The lower level boasts a theater room, in-law apartment and gallery space linking two unique monumental staircases. The entire home being open and modern is really warmed by the use of industrial and reclaimed materials, says Baker who also designed and custom made many of the furnishings. “The owners have a great love for the style and the design is truly a reflection of them.”  In addition to custom pieces by Baker, other elements were collected from vintage finds with antique Oushak rugs, and select To the Trade lines, including McGuire, Baker and Stickley. One of the unique furnishings is the beam in an iron saddle that creates a floating console in the dining room. This beam is structural, a salute to their town home in Manhattan. The designer also used 4’ x 12’ sliding doors along the front of the home with frameless glass guardrails held in front of them, creating his version of a modern Juliet balcony. Baker and his team believe great modern design should embody low maintenance and durable materials, ergonomic design decisions, environmentally healthy technologies, passive design, and spaces that promote creativity. 26   BuckHavenLifestyle.com | November 2017
