Good friday morning to ya.
You know we all love a good design book....in fact I would not hesitate to say that it is a small addiction among design bloggers.
Count me in on that obsession.
There are 3 books coming out from design icons right here in Hot'lanta baby!
The first one is renowned architect Norman Askins. A native of Birmingham, Alabama he started his firm in 1977.
Here are a few images from his portfolio. Could not love this entrance more.
These doors are taunting me. I mean hubba hubba.
His attention to detail....
Another crazy good door
His book will be out this October.
Next up is Nancy Braithwaite. She started her firm here in 1969.
I have loved her work so hard.
I adore her minimalist look so much. Dang....today is the day I remove all of my junk and streamline:)
Her book comes out this October.
Last is Barbara Westbrook. She started her firm in 1992 and actually designed under Nancy Braithwaite in the beginning of her career.
This room just kills me
She is a master at layering just perfectly.
Sadly her book is not due until spring of 2015.
You can read more about Norman and Nancy in the October issue of Atlanta Homes and Lifestyles.
I have a little news for you.
I am again participating in the One Room Challenge. I know....can you believe it? It will be the 5th time and I am excited that Linda still wants me. I can be kind of a trouble maker at times.
Just for your pleasure. I hid in the closet the other night while my husband was in the bathroom.....waiting.....patiently..... to jump out at the right time. Lord people it was so good. The look on his face made my legs go numb and I fell to the floor laughing so hard that I had to change my PJ's. The bottoms.
It is events like that when I know life is definitely worth living.
