House Tour: New Beginning in Buckhead

beginning Buckhead house

This is the time of year when we really start to think about tradition.

beginning Buckhead house office

What’s special about it, what’s memorable. 

beginning Buckhead house living room

The way that it bonds us together as family, as friends, as people traveling the same path at the same time. 

beginning Buckhead house living room

But tradition isn’t just about what happens around the Thanksgiving table, about the afternoon football games, the tree-lightings, the turkey and the stuffing.

It’s also about home, or, in this case, a house in all its iterations,

The way it grows and changes over time, morphs into the place where trends are embraced and families are formed,

Lives are lived and memories are made.

In the case of this beautiful Buckhead home, which has been imagined and reimagined for more than 100 years, 

It has changed into a place where a couple and their two children could live comfortably and entertain in style

Designer Clary Bosbyshell of Margaux Interiors brought the vision to life, indoors and out, and, it’s safe to say, breathed new energy into this project. 

All we can say is, here’s to the next 100 years!

Here’s What’s Next from the Murphy Women:

From internationally bestselling author and “rising star of Southern fiction” (Mary Alice Monroe, New York Times bestselling author) Kristy Woodson Harvey comes the third novel in her Peachtree Bluff series, in which a secret threatens the tight-knit bond between a trio of sisters and their mother.

With the man of her dreams back in her life and all three of her daughters happy, Ansley Murphy should be content. But she can’t help but feel like it’s all a little too good to be true.

Meanwhile, youngest daughter and actress Emerson, who is recently engaged and has just landed the role of a lifetime, seemingly has the world by the tail. Only, something she can’t quite put her finger on is worrying her—and it has nothing to do with her recent health scare.

When two new women arrive in Peachtree Bluff—one who has the potential to wreck Ansley’s happiness and one who could tear Emerson’s world apart—everything is put in perspective. And after secrets that were never meant to be told come to light, the powerful bond between the Murphy sisters and their mother comes crumbling down, testing their devotion to each other and forcing them to evaluate the meaning of family.

With Kristy Woodson Harvey’s signature charm, wit, and heart, The Southern Side of Paradise is another masterful Peachtree Bluff novel that proves she is a “Southern writer with staying power” (Booklist).

Creating a Dream Home–Down to the Last Detail

What do you think of when you hear the term “dream home?”

For us, so many different things come to mind. 

We could dream of a tiny farm cottage with a picket fence and trailing ivy…

Or a sprawling country estate with horses and plenty of room for beautiful gardens

A quaint ski chalet…

Or a cedar shake New England home with plenty of room for visiting guests. 

For us, a dream home could be anything, really, where we are surrounded by things we love–and people we love, of course. 

No matter how you define “dream home,” we feel pretty sure that this qualifies as one. 

The Fox Group.  has created an enviable space with so many stunning details it would be impossible to pick a favorite–

And we would could look at these photos a thousand times and still find something new to delight and inspire. 

From open shelving on a very luxe level,

To extraordinary hardware, 

Marble as far as the eye can see, 

To a workspace for everyone in the family, 

Each perfectly orchestrated area of this family house makes it feel like home. 

We think it would be nearly impossible to pick a favorite room, a favorite detail. But if we had to, we think the bathroom in this dream home might take the cake! 

What is your idea of a dream home? Is is luxurious, modern and spacious like this or something a little simpler? We’d love to know! 

We hope you had an amazing weekend and are so grateful that you stopped by Design Chic to spend a bit of your Monday with us. We always love it when you do!
