The Nicholson Gallery

It seems like people are always asking me for places to shop.  Hmmmm.....I think my friends know that I am a CONSUMER......I mean I shop for a living.  Which can be a good thing and a bad thing...think "one for me and one you for"....said in a real sing songy voice :)
When I am shopping for a client I really want to find that perfect piece...something really WOW that is a show stopper! 
One of my favorite places in Atlanta is The Nicholson Gallery on Miami Circle.  It is located right beside Eclipse De Luna which is major yummy.  You know sometimes you get weak after shopping and you need a little pick me up to keep going :)

Here are a few shots that I took the other day.
I love to take pictures of vignettes.  I feel like that is one of the hardest thing for people to do in their in their own homes......create a warm and cozy area with just the right amount of "stuff"..... First of all I love the art and I think the shutters go a long way in adding texture to this.

OK...you had me at blue...love this unusual coffee table.

I love these lamps...and this artist is one of my favorites.  Her name is Stephanie Wheeler I used some of her work in this bedroom.

More of her work...love the lavender bottles.

I seriously love her use of color......

The art...the lamps...the moss in the concrete planter....what's not to like....

Fun pillows on a very traditional settee.....

This is a different artist.  Love how it is layered on top of what looks like wooden doors.

Blue gets me every time....another cool coffee table.  I would like this one please.  I am so over my coffee table that I have had for 18 years.  Yep you read that right.


I may break in there tonight and steal this one.  I might lose some weight in jail or on second thought "marge" might make me her girlfriend...yikes.

OK...how great would this be for a headboard?  More blue shutters....I can't have enough....

So different than Stephanie's art but beautiful.  The colors...well I am doing a room in my head around them right now.  What else is new.

Great marble table...and the large lamp.  I am a fan of large lighting.....
Back to Stephanie.  Shivers......

I think that one great piece of art in a room is important.  And I am not saying it has to be original..I am not a snob.  But sometimes big is better so the eye can rest.

Crikey...more shutters and art.  I'm on a roll.  Cool lamps and nice bench.

OK...my look for less....Overstock Becca Chair is $210.00.  Great desk chair and Dr chair.  I have ordered it and it comes fully assembled.  The fabric is nice also.


Here is the Restoration Hardware one:
It is about $350.00.  It is an inch taller which is nice but maybe not $150.00 nice.
So.....if you get 4 you save $600.00!!!!!  Seriously...that is quite the savings here don't you think????

And here is a little tip.  All of my friends know that I make the best salads.  Heck...I have been eating them forever....cause I have always watched my weight.  Damn genetics.  Anyway  swear it is the dressing.  So I am going to tell you the easiest and best dressing ever.  Good Seasons Italian...oh yeah I know what you are thinking.....but wait.  Put a half of tsp of sugar in it.....kind of cuts the part that makes you eye twitch a little and then add.......a squirt [very important to use the exact amount] of Boar's Head Pepperhouse Gourmaise.  Try it.

Last tip of the week....if you live in Atlanta.  Gail K. Fabrics on Cheshire Road.  Just go...you will see.  They have more than a million bolts of fabric and more buttons and trim that you can shake a stick at.  Yes it is a fabric store for fashion but there is so much there that can be used for home dec.  Like I used some great mens suit fabric for curtains.....get the picture.

So you have gotten some eye candy, look for less with a great chair and a secret haunt for designers.....life is good huh?

Enjoyed the tour, loved the art! (There is some great styling going on in that shop.)

I'm also intrigued by that Overstock chair. I was thinking of ordering a more traditional desk chair but they're all so dang ugly. Since you have the chair, do you think it would be comfortable enough to sit in for hours in front of the computer???

Sounds like a great place to shop.....Love the chair..I just ordered something from Overstocked too....I have a couple of things from there and I am always happy with the quality!

Love Stephanie's abstracts! Right up my alley! I might have to make my Atlanta trip longer to hit all these places, Sherry. And I'll have to try that salad dressing. This post was like 3 posts rolled into one. Way to economize!

Your blog pains me because every post makes me want to move to hot-lanta. I LOVE her art. It's amazing and just my style. Does she have a website?

Kim@Chattafabulous said...

What a well-rounded post. Artwork is exquisite, and next time I head to Atlanta, I'm going to the fabric store - selections not so great in Chattanooga!

Kim @ Savvy Southern Style said...

Sherry, I have never been to Miami Circle because I know it is way out of my price range. I love, love, love that last large lamp!! I have a thing for lamps and wish I could afford to change them out frequently. I always see new ones I want. May have to check out the fabric store some time.

That shop would be one of my favorites too!! Tell me how you like the OS chair...I have been eyeing it forever!

Rene said...

I always enjoyed our field trips together Sherry :) Definitely found a few favorites this time. My pillow insert came yesterday and I'm loving my new pillow!

Melony said...

You ordered the Overstock Becca chair! I've been eyeing this chair for awhile now. You must let us know how you like it when it arrives! Please :)

SHERRY HART said...

I used the Becca chair from Overstock for a desk. I thought for the money it was a great deal. If you are 6' 4"...no...it is a nice chair for a desk. I think it would work around a DR table also. I was surprised that the fabric was really nice and I liked that it came in a box all put together...no assembly required!

Ok, so before I head over to Nicholson Gallery -- what is a broad price point for the Wheeler art? Is it remotely affordable for someone on a budget? BTW, I'm always reading about design on a budget -- what exactly does that mean? Do some people not have a budget?

Great post, thanks!

SHERRY HART said...

I hear ya anonymous...I think her art is around $2-$3000 but I think you should go to her website and see. I am sure it is less if you buy direct. Oh yes everyone has a budget...some bigger...some smaller.

What a great shop. The art is really lovely. I haven't been to Atlanta in years, maybe I need to take a trip!

traci zeller designs said...

Looks like I need a road trip to Atlanta! I'll actually be heading through in April at the very least .... hmmmm ....

That is a nice desk chair. I need a new one. Great price. I miss Atlanta. It was fun shopping with you.

wow thanks for all the eye candy! I agree that a really great piece of art can really make a room (and of course the shutters are always a fave). Wish I lived there so I could go to Gail's fabric shop - it sounds heavenly! :)

Julie Holloway said...

wait, is good seasons in a packet or a bottle? Help, I love Italian dressing! And love the post--you know you had to throw some shutters in it.

Love ya Sherika!
