An Art Filled Atlanta Pied-a-Terre

Good morning, chic readers from here in Hoschton, Georgia! The Slightly South of Simple tour is off to a terrific start. I am thrilled to be here today at Deaton Creek to talk to a fabulous group of writing, downsizing and creating a life you love.

I’ll be in Atlanta later on the in tour (May 6 at Boxwoods at 11 am). In the spirit of Georgia, Slightly South of Simple’s setting, we thought we’d tour this fabulous Atlanta home by Barbara Westbrook and Elizabeth Hanson of Westbrook Interiors today.

dining room

Atlanta is one of our favorite cities because it combines the best parts of a big city and a small southern town.

dining nook with pendant

And, whether it’s a traditional home and yard with a picket fence or high rise city living you’re looking for, Atlanta offers both in style!

dining nook

This gorgeous Atlanta pied-a-terre has a view as beautiful as its interior.

We love the clean, uncluttered, streamlined look of this entire home.

master bedroom

It’s luxurious without being overdone or stuffy.

bathroom

And glamorous while still being livable.

sitting room with abstract art

This home even has its own master bedroom sitting area! Does it get any better?

dressing room

A hand-drawn Prunus pattern on glazed silk paper by Fromental defines this gorgeous vanity area. It makes a soft and elegant statement.

powder room with abstract wallpaper

A Phillip Jeffries floral wallpaper in the half bath is a little bolder.

bedroom with abstract art

This black and white bedroom proves that, when done right, a smaller bedroom can feel spacious, chic and fabulous for guests! Thanks so much for stopping by today to tour this Atlanta stunner!

Charming Riverside House in Georgia

Riverside house

With the Slightly South of Simple book tour only weeks away, we have Georgia on the brain! SSoS is set in the fictional town of Peachtree Bluff, but this Riverside house in Georgia is completely real–and totally charming! 

dine in kitchen

Packed with cozy style and adorable features, this kitchen looks like the perfect place to enjoy hot, sweet cinnamon rolls fresh from the oven with someone you love.

dining room

This exposed ceiling makes an incredible architectural feature–and creates the feeling of so much more space in a room. What a great hack for low ceilings!

living room

Everything about this room calls for curling up by the fire and enjoying a good book. With the weather this week, that might be something we could all use a little more of!

dining room with wood beams

Another incredible ceiling that totally defines this room. We love when the decor simply serves to intensify the charm of the architectural details of the house. This whole room has a casual-yet-elegant feel. 

family room with turtle shells

Wood paneling adds instant character–and a game table infuses a room with a feeling of fun and relaxation.

bedroom with four poster bed

We love rooms that don’t take themselves too seriously.

twin beds in guest room

Both of these bedrooms are comfortable, eclectic and totally in keeping with the tone of the house. 

seagrass bed

Natural fibers work in any home, really. But, for a river or beach house they are a necessity!

patio with fire pit

Cozy fire pits like these are where memories are made. Simply add good friends and great conversation!

House Tour: Sea Island

living-room

Sea Island Cottage

Good morning, friends! Welcome to Sea Island, Georgia! We are most excited to share this stunning home with you and to announce that my new novel, Slightly South of Simple, is coming out April 25, 2017! If you’re wondering how these two things are related it’s because Slightly South of Simple is the first in a series set in the fictional, seaside town of Peachtree Bluff, Georgia, which is very (fictionally) close and geographically similar to Sea Island!

House Tour: Madison, Georgia

4

When we think of Madison, Georgia, this home is what comes to mind. Or something like it. White, stately, columned, and, obviously, with a porch big enough for sitting all summer long. From the perfectly orchestrated interiors to the sprawling landscape, this is a home that makes you pause, take a breath, and say, “Wow!” But don’t take our word for it. Have a look around, take a seat and stay awhile. After all, this is the South y’all.
