Oh, Atlanta! Palate Cleanse.

I've been in Atlanta all week working on projects and shopping for clients.  Though I've been coming to Atlanta since college, I'm constantly amazed with every trip how many beautiful houses there are....street, after street, after street.  They go on for miles!

Architecture and design definitely have a certain vibe, at least, what I'm drawn to admire.  It's classic, clean and just down right good (I mean GREAT).  It's a palate cleanse for certain, lots of fresh, clear color, white abounds and clean design a must.  

Here are some "street gems" to ponder and images of work from some of Atlanta's greatest talent.  It's inspiring, I leave with renewed spirit for my work every time I visit.

I mean, REALLY?

Classic, lovely and home!!!

Gem of a gem.


Timeless, true and one-of-a-kind.

Who wouldn't want to call this home?

Atlanta's design talent abounds.  These designers have a special magic and continue to inspire year after year.  I'm always amazed at the attention to detail and quality Atlanta designers exhibit.  Truly amazing!  Enjoy these images.  Perfection!

  1. Have always loved Atlanta and those homes are a great example of why. Love Holly's blog and as we begin our own home renovation will be referring back to both her blog and this post!!

  2. The homes in Atlanta's older neighborhoods are gorgeous. And I love the image of the turquoise chandelier - I've been coveting that for a while now. :)

  3. I will move into the fourth house tomorrow, please. Such beautiful interiors here, Gwen.

  4. Great round up of beautiful homes and talented designers!! And love Holly's blog - a terrific resource for tasteful ideas and examples!!

  5. Susan Kasler-one of my all time favorites, there isn't a room that she designs that I wouldn't want to live in! Haven't been to Atlanta in ages, but your photos make me want to return! Have a great weekend! barbara

  6. I feel the same each time I visit Atlanta, and wish I could visit much more often than I get the chance
