A Touch of Glamour in Buckhead

glamour Buckhead home

 

Good morning, chic readers! We don’t know about you, but we wanted to start this week on a gorgeous, glamorous note. And this Buckhead home designed by Suzanne Kasler? It’s both of those things in droves! It’s also super appropriate because we’re heading to Atlanta at the end of the week for the Design Influencers Conference and can’t wait to see some old and new friends–and houses!

One step into the entrance hall, and it is abundantly clear that we are in for a treat! Entrance hall tables can sometimes be tricky to decorate, but this one makes round table style look effortless–and takes chic to the next level.

A soft palette, lots of texture and touches of metallics make for an incredibly inviting space.

We know Valentine’s Day is over for this year, but it’s never too early to start thinking about next year! Would this not be the most gorgeous Valentine’s Day table?

 

library glamour

 

While this home is certainly filled with feminine touches, a dark paneled den creates a chic and stately masculine juxtaposition.

Banquette. Bubble chandelier. It’s too, too good!

 

kitchen glamour

 

You know we’re huge fans of the white kitchen. Touches of blue add the perfect bit of soft color. 

 

bedroom glamour

 

Nowhere is layered color more soothing and beautiful than in the master bedroom. Once again, the texture lends an undeniable softness that can’t help but feel incredibly cozy.

We’d love to be a guest in this room! Wouldn’t you? We hope you loved this glamorous Buckhead beauty just as much as we did! And if you’re going to be at the Design Influencers Conference, please let us know! We’d love to catch up!!

Thanks so much for making Design Chic a part of your day. We always love it when you stop by.

The red hearts and pink xs and os. Sweet shaped cookies and homemade cards. It is the stuff of storybooks.

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).
