House Tour: New Beginning in Buckhead

beginning Buckhead house

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

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

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

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).

House Tour: Forever Home in Buckhead

Forever home. It’s a tall order, a big request and a giant leap.

Because creating a house where you want to stay for the foreseeable future can be hard enough.

Taking that giant leap and creating a home where we want to stay forever is a big, huge deal.

But that’s exactly what Liza Bryan and architect Ryan Duffey did for these Buckhead homeowners.

And the results are,

From living, dining and gathering spaces perfect for family, friends or a quiet night at home,

House Tour: Art Deco Revival

1160408_Duffey_ArtDeco_EGD_104

You know we love simplicity in the interior. But when those clean lines and pared down color palettes translate to the exterior as well we couldn’t be more thrilled. This Buckhead home from Atlanta Homes and Lifestyle is a stunning example of an Art Deco Revival.  Open, bright, light and with just the right amount of exterior detail, it goes without saying that we can’t wait to peek inside this beauty!
