Things We Love: A Gorgeous Garage

Atlanta Homes and Lifestyles – Architect Yong Pak

 

More than just a place to park your car, a garage — when done right — is an integral part of the home.

We’re still in the planning stages of our addition,  and a gorgeous garage is on the top of our list for things we need — and inspired this post! Remember, when doing your own addition, it’s always a good idea to compare prices.

Keeping our cars out of the salt air is great, sure. But, when it comes to garages,

we love the idea of creating extra space for guests.

A charming suite up top complete with bedroom, bathroom and kitchen gives guests privacy while still letting them be a part of the fun.

Extra room for guests or no, isn’t it nice when a garage is a seamless part of the home, not an afterthought? This one is particularly well done, we think.

Detached garages can add charm — and work well when they are added later,

but there’s nothing better when it’s raining outside and you have a car full of kids, groceries, etc. than to be able to slide right in your door without getting a drop on you!

When it comes to garages, it’s all about the garage doors isn’t it? We love the charm of these carriage doors

This garage is simply stunning.

What People are Saying About Slightly South of Simple:

SLIGHTLY SOUTH OF SIMPLE cuts right to the heart of what it means to be a born-and-bred Southerner, complete with the responsibilities, secrets and unique privileges that conveys. Kristy Woodson Harvey creates four women who are at once completely different yet utterly the same–and a town that you won’t ever want to leave. Interior design, family secrets, life on the coast… It’s easy to see why everyone is buzzing about SLIGHTLY SOUTH OF SIMPLE. –Cassandra King, bestselling author of The Same Sweet Girls
