House Tour: Buckhead Beauty Designed by Suzanne Kasler

Buckhead house - Suzanne Kasler

It’s been a whirlwind 25 days on the Slightly South of Simple book tour, where I have had the great pleasure of meeting amazing people in beautiful cities and towns across our Country.  I was in Atlanta just a few days ago, and I couldn’t help but think about that time when I saw this fabulous Buckhead home designed by one of our favorite designers, Suzanne Kasler. Take a peek. We think you’ll love it just as much as we do!

it is quite nearly impossible to even look at Shelley’s gorgeous designs without feeling fabulous.

And her backyard is the ultimate oasis.

Creating a Kitchen that is the Heart of the Home

We all know that the kitchen is the heart of the home. It’s obvious, really. We don’t know about you, but we feel like, no matter how we try to make the living room enticing and sunroom chic, everyone always wants to congregate in our kitchen!

In that way, we think the kitchen sets the tone for the rest of the house. Is it formal? Cozy? Casual and fun? Whatever feeling guests get when they walk in the door is probably the one that will stick with them. That’s why we always think that, when it comes to design, kitchens should get a lot of love!

There’s nothing quite like a pop of color to infuse life and personality into a room, and there are so many ways in a kitchen to add an accent.

Of all the ways to add a little fun, we think these retro appliances might be the very best! They instantly set the tone for the rest of the room–and the home.

This blue is one of our very favorite Elmira Stove Works shades. It’s bright, bold and perfect for making a statement.  We would love these appliances anywhere, but we can really see them at the beach!

Maybe it’s because the early Spring fever has gotten the best of us, but we are loving yellow these days. It’s one of our favorite refreshing shades and is made for the kitchen.

This soft shade adds so much dimension and fun without being overpowering.

White appliances are back in in a big way, but why go basic when you can have appliances that are super chic?

These Elmira appliances are just the right amount of retro–with modern functionality, of course–to add a vintage flair.

From antique to retro to contemporary, Elmira Stoveworks has the right collection to help you create your dream kitchen. What’s your favorite shade we showed? The blue, the yellow or the white?

After weeks of high sixties and mid-seventies temperatures here, it has finally gotten cold. We’ll never quite understand North Carolina weather, how it is seventy-five and then, all of a sudden, with no warning, you wake up and it’s thirty-two and it stays that way for months. But, it actually makes us kind of excited, the cold weather.
