ATLANTA HOMES AND LIFESTYLES




I have made no secret that AH&L is one of my favorite design magazines.  I am constantly amazed when every time I open the pages my face goes white and my hands get clammy with design envy.

This month was no exception.  Bob Brown and Jimmy Stanton.

Boom.....

Bob I'm coming for you....to perform an exorcism where I become you and you get me....yeah that is a bad deal for you but whatev......

Anyway this is his personal lake house and it got my brain all in a tizzy.



Um....it's OK I guess.



 I am all over this kitchen..... cause that is pretty much my granite which I could change [not happening while I am still married to this husband] or just put up a million dollars worth of shiplap [probably not happening either.....drats].


Kapow.
That chest is so darn gorgeous.



Next up is Jimmy Stanton.

His pad in Madison, Georgia was on tour last weekend so I missed it.  Crap.


OK....on second thought I am on my way now to buy a can of dark gray paint and throw it up in the kitchen.



I do not hate this table base.

This.....green sofa.  Boom.



Cole and Son wallpaper.

Meanwhile I am down in Florida making such important design decisions it is mind blowing.


I had new pillow shams made so I needed a couple of accents.  Do I go with the dark blue 

Or....
This color.

Whew I am exhausted from decision making.
Yeah I know.  I have been wanting to paint this headboard for 10 years.



Oh well.  There is always next year.

Last up is Dear Carolina.  Our blogger friend from Design Chic.... Kristy Woodson Harvey has written a book! It launches today.


So excited for her.  Go to Design Chic and see how you can win....wait for it....a 1000.00 shopping spree!

Wowzers! So pretty! BTW, I vote for dark blue pillows!

Unknown said...

Very inspiring post! So many beautiful elements to all the spaces. Wow!

Blue or green pillows? Both great... Green is softer, blue is crisper.

Thanks for sharing so much inspiration!
