Remember this fabulous condo from my book? Well it’s for sale and I wanted to let you guys know first because it’s sooooo awesome.  An amazing South End location, gorgeous windows with tons of light and that MANTEL (but that commissioned Amanda Talley painting is not for sale :) Sorry!)

We renovated the kitchen with a fabulous waterfall peninsula and all new appliances, cabinets, tile and lighting.

The custom curtains would probably be included in the sale (actually, almost all the furniture is up for grabs, like this pair of wingbacks,  as I’m designing an AMAZING new space for this client!)

We designed this great custom built in that conceals the TV and offers ample storage.

The New/Old House

Anyone who has ever bought a truly old home knows that along with the charm, detail and history come leaks, creaks,  inefficiency and lots of repair bills.  I LOVE nothing more than a gorgeous old home and nothing makes me sadder than seeing one knocked down to make way for a McMansion or renovated improperly.  But old houses are a beast, and they aren’t for everyone.  New homes are just so much easier.  However, there are architects who design new houses to look just like old ones (my dad being one of them)- implementing reclaimed materials, handmade woodwork and mouldings and a great attention to detail and materials.  One other such architect is D. Stanley Dixon in Atlanta.  I GASPED when I saw this poolhouse (seriously, if this is the poolhouse can you even imagine what the main house looks like?)  in Atlanta Homes Magazine. Can I just live here?

My Top 15 Shows to Binge Watch

Everyone is binge watching shows these days, and we certainly participate in this. SO much so that we feel we’ve run out of shows to watch! So I thought I’d share our top 15 favorite shows to binge on and ask for your recommendations for others and perhaps we can help each other out! :) With the lack of sleep I’m getting these days I need something GOOD to keep me going!

1.) The Killing

I love, love, loved this show. The premise is dark but we were SO hooked on it. Especially the first two seasons. If you like mystery/suspense/ cop dramas this is SO for you.

2.) Friday Night Lights

I never in a million years thought I would love a show about football so much, but during the finale I was boo-hooing like a fool. And one of the most satisfying endings to a long series there has ever been.

Fashion Friday: Prepping for the Oscars

As always I’m pretty excited to watch the Oscar’s red carpet this weekend and I spent some time this morning scouting the recent fashion week shows for dresses I think may be great on the red carpet. Honestly, it was hard- I’m not loving a lot of the looks out there right now. And if I see one more celebrity in a see through skirt I will stab myself in the eye. I’m hoping for some more ladylike and straight up glamorous styles. What about you?

I don’t love the metallic belt or the headdress, but I do love the color and feminine silhouette of this Zuhair Murad number. This black Donna Karan dress is insanely sexy in a structured way.  With an updo and huge emerald and diamond statement earrings- kaboom.
