What a Trip

Ha ~ This one totally cracked me up.  You know how in my last post, I talked about the elusive masterpieces tucked away on gracious Atlantan Lots.  Architectural gems that are hidden all around town.  Beautifully sculpted dream homes with magnificent detailing designed by abundantly talented artisans. Well, I’ve been intrigued with this one from the road for some time now. You’d think that … Read More What a Trip

Home ~ Forever and a Day

Welcome to Grand Ol’ Atlanta. There’s no other place like it. 75 to 100 years ago, the outlining boundary of the city was acre after acre of rolling country side. Gentleman farms for the families of the business tycoons who pioneered this burgeoning new town. It was not uncommon at all for a family to build their estate on a 60+ acre piece while … Read More Home ~ Forever and a Day

The Source Of Character

The other day I wrote a post about an amazing home that we had a chance to explore and about the conversations that subsequently developed surrounding the “Character” of the home.  How it primarily goes back to the level of thought that is put forward into the formation of the project. As I think about it a little bit more though, there is another piece of … Read More The Source Of Character

Highlights From The Home On The Hill

Well… all I can say is, I hate it that you missed this one.  What an amazing home to run through. Evening was falling; and yet, the entire crew was converging fast.  Filled with anticipation.  Darting through Atlanta’s traffic with a single purpose in mind.  I knew that we would have a great turn out, but, I was truly impressed when I turned the corner onto Andrews … Read More Highlights From The Home On The Hill

Here’s A Twofer

Well ~ It’s that time of year.  The holiday season is upon us and a ton of cool events are comin’ down the pipes.  Stay plugged in here and I’ll feed you as many as I can. Let me start out these postings with one of my favorite groups:  The Insitute of Classical Architecture and Art. The other week, we had a guest lecture and … Read More Here’s A Twofer

Random Shots ~ New Life / Quintessentials / Treasures / Ruckus

Yep, that’s me.  I’d be the idiot that you would usually find hanging off the back of a jet ski with a camera in my hand.  In fact, if anyone could draw a caricature of that (Ahem … Kane Hawkins, who happens to be the best illustrator I’ve ever met) I’d love to have one as my new profile pic.  Anyway, here’s a little randomness from the Lake. Building ~ Who doesn’t get excited … Read More Random Shots ~ New Life / Quintessentials / Treasures / Ruckus

Which one would you pick?

I Love to find patterns.  Patterns in the marketplace.  Patterns in emerging developments.  Patterns in people’s behaviors.  The crazy thing is though, so often I fail to see any of the patterns in my own life.  While driving from one project to another last week, I began to connect a few of the dots.  You see, I’ve never considered myself to be defined by one single architectural style.  In … Read More Which one would you pick?

Well Worth the Ticket

Hey All ~ Quick post here about an outstanding event that I went to last Thursday evening.  It was the Atlanta Symphony Associations Decorators Showhouse.  These are always incredible tours, not only because of the unsurpassed talents of the participants involved, but also, because of the spectacular venues which they are able to showcase.  And this one was nothing less than amazing.  We were lucky enough to actually have a private guided tour … Read More Well Worth the Ticket

Touches of Blue

So, I’ve been sitting on a post for a while now, but, hadn’t been able to pull it all together.  While watching the events unfold in the news with North Korea, the timing seemed to be right.  What a miserable, pathetic, impotent attempt at proving something to the world. The worst part though was when the “State” run media outlet made the announcement of the failed launch with … Read More Touches of Blue

Taken Back a Bit…

Well, we just made it back, with a bevy of young’uns in tow, from a week away at my second most favorite place under the sun. That place being St. Simons Island along the gorgeous Georgia coast. I love it for its strength in resisting the trap of commercialization. You know, a sell out of any kind has always rubbed me the wrong way.  While we … Read More Taken Back a Bit…

Spring, Spitzmiller, APC and The Grant Mansion

What a magnificent day this Saturday turned out to be.  It started with some good times, hanging out with the tennis crowd and capturing a swift victory.  It wasn’t me though.  I think I need to give almost all of the credit here to Ted.  {Who, by the way, runs an exceptional company called North Georgia Windows.  If you ever need to get some windows replaced, give Ted … Read More Spring, Spitzmiller, APC and The Grant Mansion

It’s a Radiation Vibe Thing

  Here’s one of my All~Time favorite Homes, in one of my All~Time favorite communities. The beautiful enclave of Brookhaven. I happen to have the good fortune of driving by this beaut everyday as we have a new home going up just down the road. I Love the patio doors, the full size shutters, the rhythm of segmented arches, the swooped gable, the motor … Read More It’s a Radiation Vibe Thing
