Over the past few years, there has been a real focus on living locally. The farm-to-table movement has revolutionized eating. Farmers’ markets have sprouted up across the city, and entire restaurants have been created around the concept of sustainability. While the Atlanta design industry is not as hyperlocal— many things are designed here, but made elsewhere—there are real signs that more home furnishings will be created in the United States in the years to come. I’m certain we’ll see that here, too. In some respects, the Atlanta design community is at the forefront of that shift. Our local craftsmen are unparalleled, and when they’re paired with a designer or architect with a strong vision, the results of their collaborative efforts can be truly inspiring. This month’s cover is a reflection of that. The core pieces were made right here in our area. The console was imagined and designed by Square Feet Studio, a local design and architecture firm, and it was fabricated by Skylar Morgan Furniture + Design at its Atlanta atelier. The botanical painting hanging above it was created by artist Susan Hable in her Athens studio. The pieces were photographed in the recent Atlanta Homes & Lifestyles Christmas House, which is featured in this issue. The showhouse strives to capture the best in local design right now, as well as provide an outlook to where it’s headed. And while you’ll find objects with different places of origins—Italian fabrics, Persian rugs, English antiques, etc.—the essence of Atlanta style is imbued throughout.

Jump-start spring with the latest style news from around town FLOWER POWER
As a high school student in South Florida, Karla Pruitt’s part time job was painting murals in local homes. Now that Hygge and West (hyggeandwest.com) are carrying her wallpapers online, Pruitt’s designs reach a much wider clientele. “I love patterns,” says Pruitt, who was inﬂuenced as a girl by the fabrics in her great-grandmother’s Miami upholstery shop and by her mother’s needlework. Today, the SCAD graduate fuels her imagination with
walks around her Normaltown neighborhood in Athens. “Every spring, the camellia bushes are in bloom, and that inspired my garden wallpaper,” she explains. In addition to her ﬂorals, which come in gold, magenta, mint green and sensuous black, she’s created a modern take on the polka dot and an architectural ogee pattern, drawn from the leg of a chair given to her by her grandmother. “It’s a challenge,” she notes, “making something new out of something classic.” — Amy Laughinghouse

Join Atlanta Homes & Lifestyles’ editors and a group of lifestyle experts for the second annual READER DAY on Wednesday, February 20, at ADAC. Panelists will include ﬂoral and landscape designer Brian James Davis, chef Kevin Gillespie, designer Melanie Turner and AH&L columnist Marcia Sherrill. Ainsworth-Noah & Associates, Design Galleria Kitchen & Bath Studio, Bradley Hughes and Porcelanosa will host the day’s events. adacatlanta.com
Shop & Savor
GUY T. GUNTER & ASSOCIATES is more than a source of top-of-the-line appliances. The Junior League of Atlanta and the National Kitchen & Bath Association are just a couple organizations that have booked SAVEUR, the sprawling, 4,500-squarefoot party space located within the sparkling Westside showroom. Spread among ﬁve professionally designed kitchen displays and a luxury demonstration kitchen commanded by resident chef Alex Reethof, the venue can accommodate as many as 250 guests for fêtes and up to 100 for seated dinners with any chef you wish, and offers fully-integrated technologies like ﬂat-screen TVs, a high-tech sound system WiFi and more. 1610 Southland Circle NW, Atlanta 30318. (404) 874-7529; guytgunterappliances.com
Children’s clothier MCCALL WILDER has revved up her repertoire, taking her talents beyond little ones’ ensembles to elegant linens for the home. With McCall Wilder Couture, she employs the same luxurious fabrics, attention to detail and eye for intricate patterns. The high-quality linens start with Sea Island cotton knit in any of three colors—white, pink or pale blue. Embroidery is then satin-stitched, hand-blocked, or rendered in patterns such as feather stitches, vines or satin dots. From the classic to the elaborate— including hand-blocked monograms to rose wreaths and triple bullion ﬂowers—the options for everyday and holiday are endless. 110 East Andrews Dr., Suite 3, Atlanta 30305. (404) 841-9263; mccallwilder.com
After shuttering its location at the corner of Peachtree and Piedmont, THE CONTAINER STORE has moved to a bigger and better, 28,000-square-foot showroom in Buckhead. Located right across from The Ritz-Carlton Residences, the shop stocks more than 10,000 of the brand’s raved-about storage and organization products, like artisan glass canisters, the silver sunny kitchen trolley and its brightly colored Bisley ﬁ le cabinets. Fresh ideas for organizing and de-cluttering your home and office seal the deal, with tons of parking to boot. 3637 Peachtree Rd. NE, Suite C, Atlanta 30319. (404) 963-9602; containerstore.com
At their namesake ADAC showroom, RANDY GRIZZEL & GARY MANN have rolled out a fresh line of relaxed and livable furnishings. Collection Now comprises an affordable range of trade-only case goods, lighting, upholstery, accessories and textiles perfectly suited for today’s lifestyles. The “Now” part of the moniker is two-pronged: The items are current—inﬂuenced by movements in the market but not overly trendy—and they’re also available off the ﬂoor for instant gratiﬁcation. Any pieces ordered will arrive in no more than four weeks. The trick is in the duo’s reigned-in approach: Limited options for ﬁnishes and fabrics mean the pieces can be produced quickly without clunky customizations. But we still bet you’ll love the upholstery options up for grabs—a full spectrum of high-traffic fabrics in muted primary hues. Grizzel & Mann, 351 Peachtree Hills Ave. NE, Suites 120 & 226, Atlanta 30305. (404) 261-5932; grizzelandmann.com
BEAUTIFUL BIDDING The 14th-annual ART PAPERS Auction is upon us, and with new director Saskia Benjamin on board, we anticipate the most exciting event yet. Hosted once again at Mason Murer Fine Art, the event that serves as the kickoff to Atlanta’s art year and as ART PAPERS’ largest annual fundraiser will feature work by more than 250 established and emerging artists from Atlanta and around the world—Sarah Emerson, Jiha Moon, Harriet Leibowitz and Scott Ingram among them. Attended by thousands, the auction opens with a collector’s preview on February 8, followed by the big auction night and party on February 9. artpapers.org/ auction

< HIGH STYLE THE RESIDENCES AT MANDARIN ORIENTAL, ATLANTA, recently
Down to Earth
Formed by LEED-certiﬁed husband-and-wife duo T. Gene and Xiorelis Cox, fresh Midtown boutique ECODENIZEN brings earth-friendly housewares like Rewined Candles, Loll Designs furniture and SodaStream machines to our ﬁngertips. We love the store’s stylish “Tangle Pendant” ﬁxture from Artecnica (at left, $89). A reﬁll station for natural cleaners is the real eye-catcher, but the owners also rep an extensive range of kitchen components certiﬁed as “green.” The store is designed as a way to turn retail shoppers into design clients and vice versa; the duo operates a design business out of the back, showcasing no fewer than seven countertop surfaces, a range of ﬂooring materials—from reclaimed wood to cork— and Kirei bamboo cabinetry. The couple’s current projects include supplying LED lighting to a number of restaurants and a Buckhead condominium, saving it $10,000 in energy expenditures annually. 999 Peachtree St. NE, Suite 180, Atlanta 30309.

ARTFUL ARRIVALS SOME OF ATLANTA’S MOST ELEGANT GALLERIES HAVE RECENTLY WELCOMED SEVERAL FRESH AND FORWARD-THINKING ARTISTS, FOR WHICH COLOR AND EXPRESSIONISM ARE KING. HERE ARE JUST A FEW APPEARING ON OUR RADARS: Married couple Reagan and Danny Geschardt have signed on at GREGG IRBY FINE ART. Both use color with aplomb—Danny in the form of acrylics, oils, charcoals and pastels, and Reagan with bold brushstrokes in oil pigments. The gestural, mixed-media pieces of Eileen Power also join the group. ANNE IRWIN FINE ART has greeted the geometric spheres of artist Hamp Stevens, whose mathematically exact wooden sculptures are formed from dozens of precisely cut shapes. The textural, colorsaturated landscapes of Jane Schmidt also join Irwin’s roster. ALAN AVERY ART COMPANY’s latest include the luminous paintings of Jennifer JL Jones and Southern rural scenery by Courtney J. Garrett. HUFF HARRINGTON FINE ART’s new debuts are Laurie Yeates Adams, for softly abstracted ﬁ gurative works, and Roger Dale Brown, for classical landscapes, while PRYOR FINE ART rounds out the offerings
unveiled a new model residence. Johnna Barrett of Barrett Design created the serene space, which features a calming color palette, shimmering wall surfaces and luxurious ﬁ nishes and details. And, of course, there’s the inspiring skyline view from the home’s perch on the 41st ﬂoor. The new residence joins two other model homes designed by John Oetgen and Mimi Williams. residences.mandarinoriental.com/atlanta
WEDDED BLISS After furnishing residential salons at Tony Conway’s new Buckhead wedding and events venue, Estate, the team at MITCHELL GOLD + BOB WILLIAMS got a bright idea. Why not create a way for newlyweds to more easily bring MG+BW pieces into their homes? The MG+BW registry was born. Conway returned the favor by gifting $150 in MG+BW credits for each event he hosts, so his clients can begin registries for their new phases of life. The gift certiﬁcates, elegantly boxed and tied with blacksatin ribbons, are physical tokens of the carefully cultivated online database— one that’s designed to be a registry for what you really want, not a ﬁxed-price item. The funds build inﬁnitely, so you can spend them on something small, like the new lacquer Iris boxes, or a grander investment piece, like the sumptuous Avignon sofa. 3081 Peachtree Rd., Atlanta 30305. (404) 869-1770; mgbwregistry.com
First Pets Dallas native Jennifer Pickens recently appeared at the AH&L Christmas House to speak about her beloved book, Christmas at the White House. Her new presidential publication, PETS AT THE WHITE HOUSE ($49.95, Fife & Drum Press), pays tribute to the animals treasured as part of the White House brood. Pickens’ tome softens the political personas of various heads of state through 200 touching photographs—many of which have never before been shown. With a foreword by former First Lady Barbara Bush, interviews with dozens of White House staffers and personal contributions from former ﬁrst families, the non-partisan pub shines a light on tender moments with their two- and four-legged companions—from dogs and cats to ponies and parakeets (even an alligator). Place orders online to receive copies signed by the author. jenniferpickens.com/books

STYLE (hot list) ONLYTHE THE FINEST FINEST ONLY Luxury hotel veteran HARRISON ROHR has worked for such prestigious spots as The Four Seasons Hotel Atlanta and The RitzCarlton, Atlanta, and most recently served as director of catering and convention services for The St. Regis Atlanta, where he was one of its founding team members. Though he departed in August, he hasn’t lost his appetite for the exceptional. Exquisite Stationery by Harrison Rohr, his sleek new appointment-only boutique on East Paces Ferry, is the local crème de la crème of couture stationery. Through one-on-one consultations with the city’s most discriminating clientele, Rohr creates completely custom designs from the paperies of William Arthur to Vera Wang—even over-the-top-opulent options from Twig & Fig featuring faux fur.

TIME FOR DESIGN
Since November, the MUSEUM OF DESIGN ATLANTA has played host to its most exciting showcase yet: “The South’s Next Wave” exhibition, which matched many of the city’s premier design talents with equally inspiring artisans, from cupcake crafters to electric guitar makers. An illustrious list of more than 50 collaborators—Caryn Grossman, Bobby Berk, Amy Wikman and Michel Boyd, to name a few—came together to construct the 16 high-design vignettes. This month, a viewer’s choice award will bestow a cash prize of $6,000 to the winning designers, as judged by the exhibit’s savvy attendees. Stay tuned. 1315 Peachtree St. NE, Atlanta 30309.

French Touch THOMAS BASTIDE
Celebrated French designer recently stopped by Atlanta’s OwenLawrence for a series of events with Baccarat, which is one of the ﬁne lines represented in the showroom. New introductions and old favorites were on view, and customers lucky enough to snag one of Bastide’s designs were able to have it signed by the design icon. Baccarat is no stranger to artist and designer collaborations, which have included the likes of Jaime Hayon, Philippe Stark and Marcel Wanders. Bastide—who has worked with the company for three decades and is responsible for some of Baccarat’s best-selling pieces—often looks to the past while creating new pieces for today’s lifestyles. After all, the company’s history dates to 1764. “[Baccarat’s] legacy is in the essence of everything I design,” Bastide says. But not one to rest on its past accomplishments, the company is debuting Baccarat Hotels & Resorts later this year, which will allow the company’s fans to not only own a piece of Baccarat, but live the lifestyle as well. baccarat.com; owenlawrence.com
SHOW SOME SKIN Atlanta-based JERRY PAIR LEATHER is a leader in high-quality upholstery hides, and things couldn’t be better for 2013. A new and improved, fully interactive website will prove the perfect place to preview new lines of leather as they debut, including two of the latest to come from its esteemed Italian tannery: Heifervescent (shown) and Bulls Eye. Artfully punched in eight shades of aniline leather—including several neutrals, plus on-trend citronella and apple green—the cheekily named Heifervescent adds incredible texture to any design scheme. In contrast, the brand’s more traditional release, Bulls Eye, is a supple, smooth option dyed for rich color and finished with a protective top coat, so it holds up mightily in high-traffic rooms Available through Jerry Pair & Associates, (404) 261-6337; jerrypairleather.com
Designer TISH MILLS has long offered her artful geode lamps through her design studio at ADAC West, but so many folks were coming to her Harmonious Living headquarters seeking the crystal specimens that Mills began to feel like she was selling out of the trunk of her car, so to speak. The solution? To merchandize the lamps and other objects she loves within a beautiful in-office boutique. The highly curated setup reﬂects her deep passion for clean-lined, organic design, and acts as a way for her to sell the items she loves most. “I’m sharing my heart with people who come in,” she says. Among the retail options are upholstery by Charles Stork; sleek, natural furnishings from Atlanta-based Indo Puri; alabaster chandeliers by JH Lighting; antique Oushak rugs; limited-batch objets d’art from Chip & Company; and affordable, semi-custom window treatments imported from California. Visitors can also ﬁnd ﬁnishing touches like abstract landscapes, rock-crystal votives and bracelets handmade by Mills’ daughters from semiprecious beads. Most inventory will refresh every six weeks, with larger pieces, lighting and upholstery rotating out every three months. Many are available off the ﬂoor, but customers who place orders can expect their items in as little as ﬁve days. For Mills, the store itself was just as well-timed. “It’s all falling into place,” notes the holistic designer. “It feels so universally sent.” 349 Peachtree Hills Ave. NE, Suite D1A, Atlanta 30305.

STYLE (hot list) Garden Variety
For in-the-know locals, RYAN GAINEY is a living legend. The city’s most famous garden designer is equally acclaimed for his courtly Decatur gardens—appearing often on Atlanta garden tours—his friendship with Rosemary Verey and his larger-thanlife persona. All told, he’s a sort that would never settle for second best, which is why he chose to collaborate with local manufacturer Jeremie when developing his brandnew Ryan Gainey Collection of accessories for indoors and out. The gracious garden ornaments—crafted from glass, iron, and wire—are based on pieces he’s owned and loved, yet had difficulty ﬁnding again in the market. The inspired collection debuted at AmericasMart in January and should arrive in stores by spring. This month, Gainey also releases an extremely limited-edition collector’s book, The Gathered Garden ($125, Bennett Graphics). Bound in leather and linen, it features 36 original watercolors of Gainey’s favorite botanicals as rendered by local artist Sarah Towery. Have your copy signed on February 27 when Gainey gives a lecture at the Atlanta History Center’s Cherokee Garden Library in his trademark full regalia. ryangainey.com; atlantahistorycenter.com
Inside & Out
A Soft Touch
NOAH LAWTON’s early life in rural Michigan and industrial Detroit inspired his love of soft ﬁ nishes and faithfully crafted furnishings. It’s that same Midwestern sensibility that has garnered scores of quiet fans for his under-the-radar Atlanta business, Lawton Studios. A bestkept secret of the local pros, Lawton previously worked on mega-yachts and private aircrafts before pursuing furniture full-time. His sculptural tables and case goods, designed for humane interior environments, are derived from traditional tenets, but modeled after modern life. Starting with environmentally responsible materials, he saturates his stains deep into the wood grain, bringing out its natural character while making ﬁ nishes durable enough to stand up to daily abuse.

The results from the NATIONAL GARDEN BUREAU are in, and the top plants to use for 2013 are a trio of long-loved botanicals: Watermelon is the edible plant of 2013, Gerbera daisies are the annuals of the year, and wildﬂowers are the perennials to plant for years of beautiful blooms. Commemorate the close of winter by attending the GEORGIA PERENNIAL PLANT ASSOCIATION’s annual symposium and silent auction fundraiser at the Atlanta Botanical Garden on February 23. Gardeners of all aptitudes can hear enlightening presentations by ﬁve leading horticulturalists and join a silent auction of rare plants, garden art, tools and pottery. Return to the ATLANTA BOTANICAL GARDEN during March and April, when more than 200,000 tulips, daffodils, hyacinths and more will brandish their bright colors in the garden for the annual “Atlanta Blooms!” event.
MILES TO GO Don’t miss the Cathedral Antiques show January 31, when Atlanta native MILES REDD makes a much-anticipated appearance, giving a lecture at 11 a.m. The Southern-born stylemaker and former Bunny Williams protégé will share insights into his colorful, comfortable aesthetic as chronicled in his new tome, The Big Book of Chic, and sign copies thereafter. Also catch the Cathedral Antiques Show Tour of Homes on January 27, an Antiques Road Show-style “Treasure Hunt” February 1-2, the Inspiration House through February 10, and the titular antiques show January 31-February 2. cathedralantiques.org
OLD IS NEW AGAIN
It’s been four-and-a-half years since Holland & Company proprietor MARY PRILLAMAN and architect BOBBY MCALPINE launched his groundbreaking collection of eponymous home furnishings for MacRae. But for these friends and design-industry veterans, the time was nigh for a fresh debut. McAlpine considers the pieces—which are often inspired by the very crates they come in—as “an inheritable line of furniture, the new antiques.” Together, he and Prillaman have worked to ﬁll the gaps they’ve found in the marketplace or pay tribute to very special antiques. “It’s the kind of charm found in the provinces colonized by established countries, naïve executions of reﬁned ideas,” McAlpine explains. “Our great goal is that these pieces feel as though, in their quirkiness, that they are in fact original.” Handsome new arm chairs, “honed by a vagueness of memory and liberties taken,” are ﬁtting examples. The new lineup consists of 40 inspired items that will begin appearing at the showroom this month, then make their grand debut at High Point in April. 351 Peachtree Hills Ave. NE, Suite 238, Atlanta 30305.

STYLE TUCKER BERTA An affinity for Atlanta began as a child, when Berta’s grandmother would take her to the Fox Theatre and High Museum of Art. “As soon as you could see the skyline, I would press my face up to the window and point out buildings and say, ‘I’m going to work there.’” Berta, director of marketing for W AtlantaMidtown, is a cheerleader for the city’s culinary and performing and visual arts scene. Her endless efforts include concepting and hosting WonderGlo, producing the ﬁrst PopUp shops in Midtown, creating Street Food Thursdays, and concepting the opening events for “Skate It or Hang It” at Museum of Design Atlanta. Berta, former director of communications at Serenbe, seeks to bring media and public attention to Atlanta. “I don’t think Atlanta gets the recognition that it deserves. This place is stunning, and it’s ﬁlled with really creative people.”

As Gillespie prepares to open his new restaurant, Gunshow, in Glenwood Park this spring, he realizes that this “opportunity to do what I love” stems from his award-winning work at Woodﬁre Grill and on Bravo’s Top Chef. The pork-loving Gillespie, an Art Institute of Atlanta graduate, simmered and stirred his way into fans’ hearts on Season 6. He represented Atlanta well— as a ﬁnalist and voted “fan favorite”—and diners showed their appreciation by packing Woodﬁre Grill. His new book, Fire in My Belly, seeks to boost the skills and conﬁdence of home cooks. “My family didn’t have a lot of money. One thing we always had was a full table of food. Food has this ability to unite people and to make them all around happier.”
Musarra took charge of the 2012 Atlanta Symphony Associates’ Decorators’ Show House & Gardens with what she calls an “old school” approach, securing Knollwood, a 1929 English Georgian-style home by architect Philip Trammell Shutze. “When the project started 43 years ago, it was always in an old or historic Buckhead estate. There is something fascinating about those estates that were built in the ’20s and ’30s.” As one of the youngest— if not the youngest—chairpersons of one of the county’s longest-running show houses, Musarra drew from her experience in the design, retail and antique industries to galvanize the design community around the show house. Musarra, a University of Georgia grad who manages special events and projects for ADAC, is also now serving as the design chair for the 2013 show house. “I have had the pleasure of working with truly the best of the best when it comes to interior design talent here.”
SAR AH DORIO As a commercial photographer who travels the country up to 28 days each month for work, Dorio has had insider access into an array of businesses, including some of the country’s best restaurants. “Just capturing the essence of a restaurant is so fun. You have to walk in and sort of get the emotional grasp of a space, from the interiors, to the exteriors, to the food, and then capturing the chefs and their mood.” Dorio, who graduated from the Art Institute of Atlanta, remained here after meeting her husband, Michael, a musician. She shoots interiors, exteriors, people and places for clients including HGTV and Jamestown Properties, whose projects include Chelsea Market in New York City and Atlanta’s White Provision. Her passion for photography began with a subscription to Life magazine as a child. “I want someone’s eye to look at an interior shot and to never want to leave the page.”

Osaba grew up playing with the ﬂowers in her grandmother’s daylily farm in Arkansas, and now her innovative, yet natural creations have people rethinking ﬂoral design. Without formal training, Osaba, a former ballerina, saw a sense of movement in the ﬂowers. “It came, really, organically.” Since starting Amy Osaba Event.Floral.Design, her style has blossomed into what she describes as loose sophistication, unexpected colors and asymmetrical shapes. Her work is expanding to weddings across the Southeast and interior design. “A lot of times people will come to me and say, ‘I really love your style, and I like your eye for design. I just want you to go with it.’”
During the height of the recession, Linthicum sat around with colleagues brainstorming how to energize the design community. She remembers thinking, “Everybody is a little down. What can we do to get the energy level back up and to give something back to our fellow designers and artisans?” Those conversations birthed Design Collective, which brings together designers, architects, artisans, students and others for networking opportunities and to inﬂuence what’s next in local design. The group has grown to 130 members in just two years. Linthicum credits members’ willingness to share resources and ideas a bit of “Southern hospitality in the business world.” She graduated from the University of Kentucky, where she met her mentor and employer, William Peace of Peace Design (a fellow Kentucky alum).
MICHEL BOYD Boyd, who works in Atlanta, New York, Martha’s Vineyard and his native Louisiana, follows this mantra: more is more. “I always say when another designer would stop, I am sure to add one more layer.” Case in point: A fearless color sense brought chartreuse and grasscloth walls into Boyd’s nursery for the recent Christmas House, and at another home tour last spring, malachite prints and gold accessories ﬁlled a residence that he designed. “I want to push the envelope just a little bit,” says Boyd, owner and principal designer of SMITHBOYDInteriors and a graduate of the Art Institute of Atlanta. While wall coverings and color (ceilings are never left white) are two of his signatures, Boyd isn't one to underestimate the power of what’s underfoot; in turn, a new line of rugs is in the works.

From sharing tablescape tips on NBC’s Today show, to authoring numerous books inspired by his life growing up on a middle Georgia farm, including the upcoming A Time To Cook, Farmer lives out this philosophy: “Once the Georgia red clay stains your hands, it never leaves.” Farmer—a gardener, ﬂoral and interior designer, cook and garden-to-table lifestyle expert—is reaching a generation of city dwellers yearning for a connection to nature. “You may have a pot or plot, whatever you’ve got, you can grow something,” he says. Farmer hopes to empower people to embrace garden living as a part of Southern culture. “My generation needs a voice to say, ‘All right y’all, you plant it, you grow it, you cook it like this.’”
Nygren was on a run with her father, former restaurateur Steve Nygren, when he got the inspiration for Serenbe. As a Woodward Academy student, she was training for cross country on trails in Palmetto, where her family owned about 300 acres. They stopped running when they noticed 20 acres being clear cut. Fearful of sprawl, a plan was hatched for the new community where land conservation is top of mind. While her dad talked about “building houses in the woods,” Nygren graduated from Cornell in 2005 and planned to open hotels around the world. “I came back from college to see Serenbe grow from the ground up.” She is the director of operations, head of real estate sales and co-owner of Resource, a home decor and gift store offering interior design, personal shopping and organization services. “It’s amazing to be part of something that changes people’s lives.”
KELLY OTTINGER Ottinger had an interesting childhood hobby: rearranging furniture. Now, she does it virtually, offering e-design services (through kellyathomedesign. com) and serving as an arbiter of style through her chic style and design blog, kellymarket.com. Social media—particularly her blog and Pinterest— has proven to be a way for Ottinger to connect with interior design clients, as well as editors, artists and other designers. Ottinger describes her style as “younger traditional with a twist,” by focusing on pattern and color but incorporating heirlooms and antiques. Ottinger is inspired by fashion and art history, and believes people shouldn’t be intimated by bringing art into their homes. “It makes a difference between a room that has been professionally done and one that hasn’t.”

HISTORY IS THE DIFFERENCE In 1933, Henderson Talbot reﬁned luxury real estate marketing with a revolutionary idea. He captured the essence of some of the most prized homes on ﬁlm and held exclusive gatherings around the world for affluent buyers to preview them as cinema. Nearly 80 years later, the Coldwell Banker Previews International program continues to set the benchmark for luxury real estate marketing around the globe. ®

AROUND TOWN WITH
ILLUSTRATION BY ABBI WILLIAMS
Naomi von Habersham It’s time to get my hostess gown out of storage and the bigscreen TV warmed up! This month marks two of my favorite TV events of the year, and what better way to enjoy them than by inviting guests over for viewing parties? First up is the 137th Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show. (Despite what you may think, I have not seen all 137 of them!) Watching the parade of poodles, the cavalcade of cavaliers, and the retinue of retrievers never ceases to enchant me. To mark this year’s show, I plan to invite my dog-loving friends over for a casual supper replete with good old-fashioned chicken pot pie and chocolate cake. There’ll be nary a hot dog in sight (unless you count my neighbor’s dachshund). And I think I’ll skip the Mad Dog fortiﬁed wine and serve a nice Pinot Noir instead. Then, in late February, there’s the granddaddy of all awards shows, the Oscars. Can somebody please tell me who in the world this Seth MacFarlane is and why is he hosting the show? You know you’re getting old when the only attendees whose names you recognize are Jack Nicholson and Kirk Douglas. Anyway, an Oscars party should be a cocktail affair, especially considering that you’re gonna need one (or seven) of them to get through the often-tedious ceremony! And there must be award-worthy food, too. This year, my buffet table will be dedicated to the great Hollywood restaurants of the past and present. There will be smoked salmon and caviar pizzas, a tribute to those made famous by Wolfgang Puck at Spago, not to mention Cobb Salad, which was invented at the legendary Brown Derby restaurant. And the late Chasen’s, beloved by both Elizabeth Taylor and Alfred Hitchcock, will be represented on the buffet by Hobo Steak, their signature dish of beef ﬁ let that is baked in a layer of salt, sliced, and then sautéed in butter. Talk about caloric! Perhaps I should rethink the hostess gown and instead choose a Muumuu. Hey, it worked for Liz Taylor!

Local chefs dish on their creations that incorporate these favorite fruits
“I make a sauce that I start by blooming saffron in white wine, and then add blood oranges and navel oranges, honey, smoked paprika, ﬁsh stock and olive oil. This is simmered until the oranges are very tender, at which point it’s all pureed and strained through a chinois. It’s great with grilled ﬁsh like mahi mahi or seared scallops.” –Craig Richards, Ecco
“One of my favorite ways to welcome spring is with citrus in my dishes. A particular favorite is incorporating some fresh orange zest in the batter of my candy pecan-and-date cake.” –Scott Serpas, Serpas True Food
“A seasonal dish that I like to make features brûléed white grapefruit with winter melon, a peekytoe (or blue crab) jalapeño, fennel and olive oil. White grapefruit has an incredible ﬂavor proﬁle that is not as bitter as a ruby red or pink grapefruit. It’s also softer in texture and has an amazing sweetness to it.” –E.J. Hodgkinson, JCT.

The photography is exceptional. The editorial content is dead-on. We love the mix of gracious Southern living with edgy national trends—and a soupçon of French style. It’s a great resource for Southeastern designers and anyone who loves beautiful interiors. Our clients rave about it so we know our target audience is covered.

Letter from the Dean Letter from the Chairmen Photo by Jim Fitts
Grace to you, and peace! On behalf of the people of the Cathedral Parish of St. Philip, I welcome you to the 2013 Cathedral Antiques Show. As always, I also welcome you to this church, established in 1847 as the first Episcopal Church in Atlanta. We moved to our present location here in Buckhead in 1932, and we have grown tremendously since then. The Cathedral Antiques Show began over 40 years ago as a small and seasonal fund-raiser organized by our parish Episcopal Church Women group. How wonderfully it has grown since then! The work—and ministry—now requires a yearround commitment and has donated almost 4 million dollars to charitable organizations. I thank this year’s Co-Chairs, Mary Elrod and Marion Williams, who have really done an outstanding job this year. They have organized hundreds of volunteers in creating this weeklong event. Furthermore, I salute Caroline and Harry Gilham, Honorary Chairs of the Antiques Show. I am proud to recognize Caroline and Harry as friends who represent Cathedral faithfulness and generosity at its best! Obviously, we delight in the antiques presented here, in a show considered one of the finest in the Southeast. But this effort involves more than antiques! This is also a powerful ministry of outreach. The proceeds this year are designated for Refugee Family Services, which helps refugee women and children achieve self-sufficiency through education and economic opportunity. In particular, funds raised through the Antiques Show will support the Literacy Success Program, which provides academic tutoring and civic engagement opportunities for refugee students as well as English and financial literacy, job training, and parental support education for refugee women.
Welcome to the 2013 Cathedral Antiques Show and Tour of Homes ...and so much more! We began this journey as co-chairmen 10 months ago when we met each other for the first time at a nearby Caribou Coffee. What made us take this job...together? It was a leap of faith, that special nudge from God. The year has been a rewarding one and the job has been great, seriously, with plenty of exciting challenges along the way, the chance to work with smart and engaging people, and all the support we could possibly need from the Cathedral clergy and staff and hundreds of volunteers. We chose Refugee Family Services as our Show beneficiary because its mission of helping refugees was so compelling and its need to increase awareness was so vital to its continued growth and community impact. Inspired by the numerous heart-wrenching refugees’ stories and their hopes and dreams, the entire CAS committee has worked extra hard to build a successful Show. And, certainly, the hand of God has been hard at work, too. We have seen miracles unfold to bring in generous sponsors and patrons, talented designers for the Inspiration House, and top-notch dealers for the Show. Getting top designer Miles Redd as our speaker, beautiful homes for our Tour, and outstanding caterers for our parties...the list goes on. So many times we just couldn’t believe these good things were happening. “Oh ye, Mary and Marion of little faith: I am with you,” says the Lord. And He has been. Thanks be to God. And thanks to each and every one of you for all of your support. Please enjoy the Show!
I thank each of you for visiting the Cathedral today, and I invite you to return for other occasions of service and prayer. We are open daily, and this is truly a house of prayer for all people. Your presence helps us fulfill that mission of openness and hospitality!

May God bless you always,

2013 Honorary Chairmen Caroline and Harry Gilham Welcome to Our Spiritual Home
We welcome you to our spiritual home, the Cathedral of St. Philip. We are truly thankful for the privilege to serve as the Honorary Chairmen of the 42nd Cathedral Antiques Show and Tour of Homes. We salute the Episcopal Church Women, knowing that their magnificent event not only showcases an impressive group of antiques dealers and designers, but embodies the spirit of hospitality and excellence found in the dedicated volunteers, clergy and staff. The fact that all of the net proceeds from the Show are donated to a worthy non-profit is important and meaningful to us. This year’s beneficiary, Refugee Family Services, carries an impressive mission. Their cause of aiding Atlanta’s legal refugees to become self-sufficient is truly inspirational. We first became aware of RFS while I was serving on the Cathedral Grants Review Board. We were impressed with the acute needs of these folks who were arriving to start new lives here after enduring unbelievable hardships.

Harry is a Navy veteran of the Korean War, a graduate of Emory University, and president and founder of Georgia Lighting Company. He is a former president and honorary board member of the Atlanta Preservation Center; former foundation board member of the Summit Charter School of Cashiers, NC; member of the board of advisors of the Georgia Museum of Art; and member of the Rotary Club of Atlanta. The Goizueta Business School of Emory University named Harry its “Entrepreneur of the Year” in 2002 and presented him with its Distinguished Achievement Award in 2011. He published “Lighting the Way – The Story of Georgia Lighting” in 2010. Outside of her lifelong and varied service to the Cathedral, Caroline’s talents and devotion to horticulture are extensive in the community, both in Atlanta and Athens. She is an active board member of the State Botanical Gardens of Georgia (Athens) and a founding member of the Southeastern Flower Show. She is a past show chairman and president of the board of the Southeastern Flower Show and a past president and member of Northwood Garden Club. She is a charter member of the Atlanta chapter of Achievement Rewards for College Scientists (ARCS), a national organization to encourage college scientists.
As you can imagine, the Cathedral of St. Philip is home to many missions: from the somber Requiem for the Homeless to the lively and fun Saturday Farmer’s Market. The Cathedral hosts impressive musical events with its Concert Series and Evensong services, holds a weekly service in Spanish, supports Habitat for Humanity and numerous other outreach projects. There is always a place to become involved. For 46 years the Cathedral has been our Church home together. We are honored to work for this parish and its community, sharing our collective talents and interests, all the while gaining much more than we felt we were giving. I currently enjoy serving on an Ushering team, a Cathedral Finance Committee, the Cathedral Counseling Center Board and the Antiques Show Corporate Sponsorship Committee, and in the past, on several stewardship campaigns. Caroline is co-founder of the ECW’s St. Elizabeth’s Guild, has served on the Altar Guild, and the Cathedral Garden Guild, as well as our Cathedral Lay Governing Board known as “Chapter.” She is a past chairman and active member of the Cathedral Flower Guild. We feel that the best way to know people is to serve with them on committees and in parish groups; the community that is built and the friendships made are gifts that we cherish. I had only to walk across Peachtree Road from the Second-Ponce De Leon Baptist Church to join the Cathedral of St. Philip. Caroline has been a Cathedral member since grammar school days. She and I met on a blind date, engineered by Cathedral friends, and the rest was history. We were married by Dean Collins in the Mikell Chapel and I took confirmation classes from our beloved (Bishop) Judson Child, while Caroline was instructed for confirmation by Dean de Ovies. Our two daughters, Jean Kirby and Anna McGarrity, were also married at the Cathedral. We are thankful and indeed blessed to be part of the St. Philip family. Caroline and Harry Gilham

Passion for a Purpose 12/21/12 8:43 AM
The Cathedral Antiques Show raises funds through ticket sales to numerous events and donations by patrons and corporate sponsors. These funds net of expenses are annually donated to a local charity. This yearâ€™s beneficiary is Refugee Family Services.
REFUGEE FAMILY SERVICES Refugee Family Services is a dynamic, community-based organization that has grown and adapted to the changing needs of the Atlanta refugee community for more than 25 years. RFS helps refugee women and their families build upon their strengths in order to achieve their goals and thrive as new Americans. Each year, Georgia welcomes almost 2,000 refugees from such conflicted countries as Burma, Bhutan, Somalia, Sudan, Iraq, Burundi and Afghanistan. Many have been tortured, imprisoned or persecuted, and most have spent years in refugee camps. Despite the tremendous pressures of resettlement, refugee families are highly resilient and eager to pursue their dreams for a new life in our country. Refugees are legally eligible to work from the day they step off the plane at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport and are eager to become self-sustaining, productive members of our community. Our goal is to equip our clients with the skills and knowledge they need to succeed in school, achieve financial stability and become civically engaged community leaders. Our comprehensive network of support includes English and financial literacy education, job training and placement, parenting resources for women, and mentoring, tutoring and academic support for children. We are truly thankful for the opportunity to benefit from the remarkable generosity of the Cathedral Antiques Show community. Funding from the Show will make a lasting impact on RFS and will allow us to deepen and expand the critical support we provide for refugee families through our Literacy Success Programs. Support for these programs will allow RFS to expand our job training placement services for refugee women, helping them secure jobs they are highly likely to retain, and strengthen our highquality educational programming for students from pre-kindergarten through graduation. Thank you for your support of the Show and our work in the community! For more information, please visit refugeefamilyservices.org. Emily Pelton Executive Director of Refugee Family Services

2013 Tour of Homes Written by Helen Young

The American eclecticism of the 1920s shines brightly in this Buckhead home. With an architectural heritage drawn from the rural villages of Normandy, the stucco facade is both friendly and romantic. The architecture firm of McAlpine Tankersley worked with Benecki Homes and Melanie Turner Interiors, using only the finest materials and craftsmen, to create this stunning new house nestled on a beautiful Atlanta hillside lot. The house features an interplay of regal details, such as the elongated bay and soaring roof, and humbler elements like the first floor cottage windows and shutters, wide low front door and drooping garage roofline. Balanced discipline contrasts with playful asymmetry. Concealed within is a modern interior of open spaces, rich details and light-filled family accommodations. The house comes full circle with its modern rear elevations and embracing courtyard.

Inspired by the country houses of France and Belgium, award-winning architect Stan Dixon transformed a 1950s colonial revival into a European country house by adding an authentic stucco veneer, a steeply pitched clay tile roof and casement windows. The interior architecture is simple and restrained. Dixon successfully rearranged the interiors to maximize the sunlight on the home’s southern end so that the kitchen and entertaining spaces were flooded with light. The elegant foyer features limestone floors and a new iron railing. The stunning staircase was reconfigured to allow more light from the upper level to spill into the hall. The artful elegance of the interiors by Atlanta designer Robert Brown, in combination with Dixon’s ingenious use of space, creates a youthful and stylish family home. The monochromatic and tailored aesthetic of the interior serves as a foundation for bold accents and dramatic furnishings, reflecting the input of the owners, who appreciate beauty but also want their home to be casual and fun. This charming 1940s brick house, situated on a pristine Buckhead lot, was renovated in 2007 by a young family that chose to preserve its great bones, rather than tearing it down and building from scratch. Architect Norman Askins and builder James Cotton worked together to recreate this delightful house. The young couple’s appreciation for decorative detail inspired Askins to incorporate exquisite architectural elements throughout the home. He also enlarged many of the doorways to create flow and bring more natural light into the home. The homeowners brought in the dynamic interior design team of Will Huff and Heather Dewberry. They conjured up interiors that are classically beautiful, yet young and lively. A lighter color scheme sets the stage for a beautiful collection of antiques and artwork. Great attention to detail in the architecture and interior design of the home results in a stunning example of tasteful renovation.

Evoking Old World comfort and hospitality, this lovely new home designed by Kenneth Lynch Associates is hidden up on a hill in the heart of Buckhead. The main entrance features a dramatic cedar frame arched porte-cochère. The exterior materials and style are reminiscent of European country homes with stone, stucco, cedar framework and an authentic slate roof. The unique front doors are made up of glass and wood with metalwork. They were found by homeowner Lilla Costello, who is an accomplished interior designer. The interior colors and materials complement Costello’s delightful collection of antiques, but the heart of this house is its healing role in the designer’s life. The builder, James Cotton, had just begun to frame the house when Costello suffered a debilitating stroke. Though others might have backed away from leading the project, she insisted on going to the site frequently to make the decisions that insured the project’s success. Her love for designing houses and interior spaces inspired her recovery.
Sitting on five beautiful acres, Boxwood House is truly one of Atlanta’s landmark estates. Designed by Philip Shutze in 1929 for the McRae family, the house boasts a stucco exterior, limestone quoins and a New England slate roof. All these elements reflect its English manor house inspiration. The gardens of Boxwood House are integral to the romantic feel of the estate; the house and landscape flow seamlessly together to create an ideal environment for family life and entertaining. Now home to Atlanta author and tastemaker Danielle Rollins and her family, both the house and grounds were renovated several years ago by a dream team of design professionals, including award-winning architects Gil Schafer and Charles Heydt, acclaimed interior designer Miles Redd and landscape designer John Howard. This historic property is truly one of the most beautiful homes in Atlanta, with its boxwood gardens, koi pond and spectacular landscape design. The brilliant team executed the renovation perfectly, and the house is again a stunning jewel in Atlanta’s residential crown.

The First Place Passion home tour will take place on Sunday, February 3, from 1-4 p.m. These seven homes are located in the charming Meadowbrook neighborhood between Windsor Parkway and Roswell Road.
Pine Forest Road
At the heart of this lovely brick home is an exquisite formal living room. Symmetry throughout the space makes the room feel cozy and nuances in each furnishing’s style come together beautifully.
Inspired by Anthropologie’s unique style, this home boasts plenty of personality. In the family room, simple furniture and creative lamps reflect a homeowner who’s got a flair for fashion and isn’t afraid to take risks.
This charming one-story ranch is brimming with character from the inside out. Resting on a gently sloping hill, this home redefines curb appeal. The interior combines vintage and modern style.
Old Creek Road
This delightful ranch cottage mixes vintage chic with modern sophistication. The formal living room combines fresh patterns and colors with antique accents. Finding a way to marry new trends, like chevron-patterned pillows and your grandmother’s favorite lamp, has never looked easier.
This warm ranch bungalow was made for relaxation. The master suite is breathtaking. The vast contrast between the bold artwork and the muted color scheme create a stunning dynamic.
The creative mix of traditional pieces and industrial finds in this abode reflect the homeowner’s charismatic originality and impeccable taste. With a light color palette accentuated by unique pieces that provide pops of color throughout, this home is reminiscent of a Hamptons getaway cottage.
Meadowbrook Drive This new construction was flawlessly built and decorated with stylish sophistication in mind. The comfy cottage marries elegance and grace throughout. The open white kitchen and exquisite master suite make each design choice critical to the ambiance of the space.

THE REAL VALUE OF
ART Your collection may not be an investment in the usual sense, but it is an asset that can play an aesthetic as well as a signiﬁcant ﬁnancial role in your life, now and far into the future. B Y E R N E S T B E C K for U.S. Trust*
AS THE GLOBAL ART MARKET RECOVERS from a recessionary dip,
soaring prices for iconic pieces are once again making headlines. The sale of Edvard Munch’s 1895 pastel version of The Scream set a world auction record at Sotheby’s in May 2012 at just under $120 million, and it came on the heels of the government of Qatar’s reported private acquisition of Paul Cézanne’s The Card Players for an estimated $250 million in 2011. It’s not only rare masterworks that are seeing their value rise in a global art market worth an estimated $55 billion in 2011. Blue-chip artists of the 20th century are in demand as well. A 1964 painting by Roy Lichtenstein, of Pop Art fame, called Sleeping Girl fetched an artist-record $44.9 million at the spring 2012 auctions. And a brilliantly hued Mark Rothko from 1961, Orange, Red, Yellow, was sold for an unprecedented $87 million. With such prices setting the pace, the art market is expected to end with strong results this year, coming off a respectable 2011 in which prices climbed 10.2%, according to the Mei Moses® World All Art Index, which tracks repeat auction sales for works by major artists. A number of factors are propelling the art market recovery and higher prices for many established artists. One is the emergence of new moneyed collectors from the so-called BRIC countries — Brazil, Russia, India and China — who view art largely as a ﬁnancial asset and are building sizable collections that often focus on famous names. American collectors, some from Silicon Valley and Wall Street, are also buying.
Still, caution is always advised for a buyer or a seller, as the art market remains unregulated. Prices can ﬂuctuate over time along with an artist’s reputation, and there will be no guarantee by an auction house, a gallery or an art advisor that a work will gain in value. In 2011, for example, traditional Chinese art such as scrolls, screens and ceramics rose 20.6%, according to Mei Moses, a reﬂection of the inﬂux of Asian buyers. At the same time, prices for Old Masters climbed a more modest 4.8%. Exactly what the future holds for these or other art categories is difﬁcult to predict, as prices are based on collectors’ subjective buying impulses and tastes. Also factoring into the mix is the rarity of the pieces, the quality of the work and the worldwide demand. There are art buyers who say they are in the game solely as a ﬁnancial investment, a strategy that most art advisors warn against pursuing, given the unpredictability and volatility of the market and its lack of overall transparency. Most serious collectors regard art and acquiring art as a passion and part of their lives because they simply love art — whether paintings or sculptures or photographs are their favorite medium — and the joy that art brings, regardless of its rising or falling value. Simply stated, art is a personal extension of who they are. The venues where art can be seen and traded — from auction house sales to galleries and the growing number of global art fairs — are more crowded than ever with participants and visitors.
12/21/12 9:49 AM
Established fairs like Art Basel’s annual events in Switzerland and Miami, and newcomers such as Art Dubai in the Middle East and a New York outpost that was recently added to London’s Frieze Art Fair, are closely watched not only for celebrity sightings but also for price tags and the most sought-after artists. Some might say the art itself gets lost in the midst of these events. Yet for art lovers crowding traditional art neighborhoods — such as New York’s Chelsea with its more than 200 galleries and Miami’s up-and-coming Wynwood Arts District — as well as a thriving new art scene in Beijing, art remains the center of attention. Meanwhile, new museums are springing up in far-ﬂung locales, including Qatar and other Persian Gulf countries, Asia, and parts of the United States well outside the expected locations. One of the most notable recent arrivals is the Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art in Bentonville, Arkansas, which ofﬁcially opened in late 2011 and boasts an impressive permanent collection of American masterworks spanning ﬁve centuries. Today’s improving market serves as a reminder that great art can be an enduring and valuable asset to add for a diversiﬁed wealth portfolio. And although, as tangible collectibles, your paintings, drawings and sculptures may bear little resemblance to your other investments, the art that you own — whether part of a collection
you’ve assembled piece by cherished piece, or an inheritance that arrived fully formed — has a ﬁnancial as well as an aesthetic value. It’s part of your overall wealth portfolio. As such, your holdings need to be taken into account when you address your personal ﬁnances and estate planning. Regardless of your collection’s value, it’s important to determine what role art can play as a tangible asset now and what you would like to see happen to your paintings and other works of art beyond your lifetime. Planning strategies can provide liquidity through art lending arrangements and safeguard the legacy of your collection in the future. U.S. Trust has special expertise in these areas, and clients who are passionate about art can call upon our knowledge and resources to help them navigate ﬁnancial and estate planning issues for potential ﬁnancial beneﬁts from their collection while still gaining full aesthetic pleasure from the art.

WITH ITS LIME-WASHED PANELED WALLS, THE LIVING ROOM WAS DESIGNED TO ACCENTUATE THE HOME’S COZY-YET-STYLISH SENSIBILITY. The result: a classically comfortable room with a contemporary verve. Beth Webb’s fresh take on the formal space features four plush chairs surrounding an elliptical table that serves as both a library table and dining table for intimate dinner parties. “This arrangement creates conversation unlike any other,” Webb observes. Artwork throughout the room also serves as a conversation-starter, in addition to adhering to one of the Webb’s primary design principles. “No room is complete without art; it’s like jewelry for a little black dress,” she says.

VIVIAN BENCICH AND KELLY HEYER, SQUARE FEET STUDIO
TO CREATE A SENSE OF CALM UPON ENTRY INTO THE HOME,
Vivian Bencich and Kelly Heyer selected a subdued color for the walls, while choosing to cover the elegantly barreled ceiling in a darker grasscloth. “With the warm glow of ceiling above and the warmth of wood ﬂooring below, the space just hugs you a bit,” says Bencich. To maximize the room’s diminutive footprint, the duo tucked a high-back settee into a paneled niche and designed a pair of narrow oak consoles that boast an airy quality and give the space the perception of additional depth. An abstract piece by artist Elizabeth Stockton and botanical paintings by Susan Hable add to the foyer’s earthy charm.

experience is not always just about the food or people; it’s made more interesting and memorable by the environment. In this room, that environment was stimulated by the powerful artwork,” he says. Graphic black-on-white art ﬂanking every wall gives the illusion of dining in a gallery. He sets the rest of the scene with a custom angular dining table made of goat skin, a nod to Jean-Michel Frank—the inﬂuential 1930s designer with a penchant for clean-lined furnishings made of luxury materials. Other Howard originals in the space include leather klismos-style dining chairs and platinum leaf consoles, both of which adhere to his steadfast design rule. “You must pick and choose very carefully the things you want to stand out in a room and let everything else calmly recede around it,” he says.

TAMMY CONNOR, TAMMY CONNOR INTERIOR DESIGN
AT FIRST GLANCE, THIS MASTERFULLY DECORATED STUDY MIGHT RECALL SOMETHING FROM A SOPHISTICATED SOUTHERN COUNTRY HOUSE FROM DAYS GONE BY. But, in fact, the room draws its inspiration from a modern, well-traveled gentleman who Tammy Connor envisioned when she ﬁ rst started designing the space. “It’s ﬁ lled with items collected on his life’s journey thus far,” explains Connor of the room’s diverse mix of vintage ﬁ nds, which includes horn bottle stoppers, crystal inkwells and silver bowls. Larger antiques include an English tufted leather chair and a towering Neoclassical walnut mirror, which helped reﬂect light within the dark space. To give the study a contemporary verve, Connor chose a high-gloss ﬁ nish for the olive-colored walls and selected a clean-lined desk with chrome trappings. She continues her “updated traditional” aesthetic in the bathroom by juxaposing antique accessories—complete with history and patina—next to gleaming new ﬁ xtures and ﬁ nishes.

DESPITE THE ROOM’S PETITE PROPORTIONS, LAURA WALKER WENT FOR HIGH DRAMA IN THE LIBRARY. “I always
think you need to create some impact in a space this size; you shouldn’t put small furniture in a small space, it’s going to look even smaller,” she explains. To that end, Walker mixes and matches large-scale furnishings in varying textures and styles, including a pair of vintage chairs reupholstered in Vietnamese silk and sculptural ottomans with walnut bases. Even bookcase walls were given a textural paint treatment, reminiscent of grasscloth, which creates movement. Other highlights include an antique Italian desk, papier-mâché ﬂoor lamps and a custom Verde Home rug that anchors the room’s cozy color scheme. 75

LYNDSY WOODS, L KAE INTERIORS
THIS OPEN AND AIRY KITCHEN DESIGNED BY LYNDSY WOODS ECHOES ALL THE ELEMENTS OF A CHARMING ENGLISH FARMHOUSE. Expansive
poplar beams—originally from a 19th-century Vermont farmhouse—add visual interest, while the custom hood introduces another natural texture. It’s fabricated from cold rolled steel and ﬁ nished with a custom acid wash. Windsor-style chairs offer a comfortable place to dine on the honed Calacutta marble countertops by Levantina. Woods worked with Bell Cabinetry for the cabinetry design, which features a simple beaded inset. She added a fresh spin to the rural aesthetic by introducing a pair of overscale lamps on the countertop. “The beams were such a focal point that I felt like dropping pendants would be too distracting for the room. The lamps soften everything and make the kitchen feel more like a livable living space,” Woods says.

JAMES FARMER WITH MAGGIE GRIFFIN, JAMES FARMER DESIGNS
JAMES FARMER PROVES THAT EVEN A HOME’S HIDDEN SPACES NEED A DOSE OF HIGH STYLE. “We
spend a lot of time in mudrooms, whether it’s because we’re passing through with groceries or airing out dirty clothes. You’re usually not in there to do something fun, so you might as well make it pretty,” he says. Farmer began the design of the space with an imaginative journey through the treasure troves of familial attics and English country homes. Classic blue-and-white relics mix with other traditional items like an Oushak rug, mahogany buffet and red-and-white check curtains. The bamboo rod adds an outdoorsy touch, as does the pot of rosemary and a bucolic collection of artwork that pays tribute to Farmer’s childhood spent on a working ranch. Even the open storage area features hunting gear belonging to the designer’s family and friends. 79

GRETCHEN EDWARDS, GILSTRAP EDWARDS INTERIOR DESIGN
A BALANCING ACT WAS IN PLAY BEHIND THE WINNING LOOK OF THIS LIGHTFILLED BREAKFAST ROOM. Although Gretchen
Edwards wanted to infuse the rectangular space with a sophisticated elegance, she was careful to not let it become stuffy and formal. She accomplished this with an abstract curtain fabric and a unique take on slipcovers for the French dining chairs. “I wanted to do something different than just the typical pull-over slipcover, so I thought extra skinny ties would give the chairs a feminine feel and allow the beautiful wood to still be shown,” Edwards says. Recognizing that one of her favorite details—the brass inlay on the Madeline Stuart table—was exuding a formal air, Edwards set the table with more casual linen placemats. A mix of delicate dinnerware and eclectic accessories round out this nook’s reﬁ ned, yet relaxed, aesthetic.

THE FAMILY ROOM EPITOMIZES THE ESSENCE OF LIVABLE LUXURY.
Liz Williams’ sunny splashes of citron and teal hues— against a backdrop of neutrals—makes for a fresh and inviting color palette. Plush seating in rich textures also plays up the comfort factor, but it’s in the room’s smallest details that the space really shines. “Whether it’s the pillow ﬂanges or the tape trim around the sofa, little details were paramount in making this room truly unique,” Williams says. Even the beaded wood trim on the curtains elevates the striped fabric from simple to striking. 83

Master Bedroom AMY MORRIS, AMY D. MORRIS INTERIORS
A TOWERING VELVET-TUFTED BED BEDECKED WITH LAVISH LINENS LEAVES NO QUESTION AS TO THE FOCAL POINT IN THIS MASTER BEDROOM BY AMY MORRIS. The grandeur of this piece is
offset via the room’s cool and calming color scheme; a soft blue on the ceiling casts an ethereal glow over the entire space. To ﬁ ll the room’s large volume, Morris selected pieces such as a walnut desk and commode to place on either side of the bed. A leather settee anchors an informal sitting area at the foot of the bed. “These pieces allowed me to add some layering and depth to the design. It also gave me a chance to ﬂank the bed with something unexpected,” Morris says. The dream-like aesthetic continues in the master bathroom, where a luxurious French bateau-style soaking tub and adornments like a silk window shade and a ﬂuffy sheepskin bench radiate a quiet calmness.

USUALLY KNOWN FOR HIS QUIET COLOR SCHEMES, CHRIS HOLT DECIDED TO TAKE A BOLDER APPROACH IN THE UPSTAIRS DEN.
Glossy caramel-colored walls envelope an intimate sitting area composed of chic furnishings, including teak wingback chairs, a custom designed sofa and a sumptuously wrapped mohair slipper chair—all resting upon a graphic rug. “I love the geometric print underfoot,” explains Holt. “It keeps the space from becoming too traditional by giving it a fresh, current edge.” Holt’s bravura comes through in is his effortless mix of luxury and affordability: brass vases from Target and simple artwork created from Instagram photos blend seamlessly with side tables from Jerry Pair & Associates and a glimmering chandelier from Urban Electric Company. 88

“I started with this incredible teal and then choose a lighter chartreuse color to play off of it,” she says. Heath masterfully weaved these colors throughout the space from ﬂoor to ceiling—literally. From a striated wool rug to sky-high drapery, there’s no shortage of colorful prints in-between. The bed features Jim Thompson’s luminous “Pod” fabric on the duvet, while the bedside bench is upholstered in yet another of the brand’s unique fabrics. “I really tried to showcase the fabrics and the color play that Jim Thompson is so famous for,” Heath notes. A painting by Elizabeth Stockton, created especially for this space, captures the room’s vibrant vision. 91

MICHEL BOYD, SMITHBOYD INTERIORS
NOT EVEN A CHILD’S NURSERY IS EXCLUDED FROM MICHEL BOYD’S REALM OF FABULOUSNESS. “I chose these
particular colors because neon was so big in fashion last season, and fashion eventually trickles down to trends in interiors,” he explains. Boyd peppers the room with vibrant chartreuse—from the custom velvet daybed to the eye-catching drapery treatment. The curtains’ cornice boards feature a horizontal version of striped fabric, helping the eye move around this jewel-box of a room. A neutral grasscloth grounds the energetic color palette and plethora of prints. Boyd was able to purchase the last three yards—in the country—of Kelly Wearstler’s “Water Striped” fabric for the custom ﬂoor pillow. Other highlights include an antique horse, acrylic crib, stately orange mirror and a luxurious fox fur throw. “I wanted the space to be so packed with style,” says Boyd, “that you didn’t know what to look at ﬁ rst.” Indeed, this room is ﬁt for a prince or princess. 93

LIFE QUINTESSENTIALLY ATLANTA
What makes an Atlanta house a HOME? In the second installment of our year-long series examining the objects that are essential to every Atlanta residence, MARCIA SHERRILL puts her stamp on the subject
A CUSTOM DESIGN AVAILABLE THROUGH GRAMERCY FINE LINENS & FURNISHINGS, (404) 846-9244; SHOPGRAMERCY.COM
emember the 1990s, when monograms went into a deep, arctic sleep? Of course, you could still spot them on tea towels, and there was a certain amount of monogramming expected when someone got married (think Tiffany highballs with etched initials), but monograms went out of style as fast as ’80s chintz. Before then, our foremothers worked their weary ﬁ ngers to the bone monogramming everything in sight. They would be burning the kerosene lamp late into the night if they were unlucky enough to have a family crest. They started their daughters out young, too. Many a ﬁ ne piece of antique linen has a spot of blood from the prepubescent needlework chore. They did not get the chance to scream, “I am headed to the mall.” It seems as though my generation also skipped that lesson—we were cruising the malls with our Pappagallo bags and untucked Oxford shirts. Dashing men and fraternity boys sported shirts with subtle monograms on their cuffs or pockets, but that was about it. Visions of trousseaus crammed with linens and hallmarks had not crossed our minds. Etched ﬂatware? Forget about it. And then it hit: monogram mania. Leontine Linens and Manhattan’s Mrs. John L. Strong stationery ushered
in a new era for monogramming and everyone followed suit. I designed a collection of monogrammed handbags in 2000, and you can now ﬁ nd initials on everything from car ﬂoor mats to infant wear. What on earth could be cuter than a baby covered with a rufﬂed white bloomer with pink initials? Nothing, I tell you, nothing! On the home front, we can now ﬁ nd kitchenware and duvets and pillow shams and shower curtains, all emblazoned with our initials. Don’t know your family’s heritage? No problem. We can create our own family crests, or even walk down the aisle on a runner with our newly entwined initials. There are even faux monograms—clusters of interlocking swirls that look ofﬁcial, but really don’t spell out anything. It would be easy to think of monograms as vain attempts for us to lead lives surrounded by, well, reminders of ourselves. After all, a little monogramming goes a long way. However, they’re really reminders of where we’ve come from and, hopefully, where we’re going. NEXT MONTH: DOGS
