ATL Market Favorites & Tracery Book Signing with J Douglas Living!

Hello Friends!

As promised, Paige and I are sharing our favorites from Atlanta market with you. You’ll be seeing most of these items in their new home here at Tracery very soon… and others just caught our eye!

Market made for a great trip to Atlanta, as always. In addition to finding great new stuff, lots of familiar faces were seen and fun nights out on the town were had. We also got to spend some time with our friends at J Douglas who were nice enough to host a book signing for Tracery!

Enjoy!

Well Atlanta wasn’t hot on this trip but it was fun as always! We (AK and I) went on a big client shopping trip. We went to all our fav Atlanta shopping spots: South of Market, Parc Monceau, Pieces, Bungalow Home, Dearing Antiques, Stanton Home Furnishings, Scott’s Antique Market and Anthropologie. We were all over the place! We also made time for lunch and dinner with friends. Here are some of the photos of our favorite finds!

lately

Hey everyone, it’s Doug.  To say we’ve been traveling a lot lately would be an understatement.  From New York to Missouri, and everywhere in between, our projects have us spread all over the place right now.

Last week, Paige joined me in Birmingham on Monday afternoon for an interview for a potential new project.  On Tuesday she and I had meetings in Birmingham all day–including a great one about the Birmingham Home & Garden Inspiration Home that we’re designing.  Wednesday, we headed to Atlanta to visit ADAC and gather fabric samples for some new projects we’re working on.  Anna Kay joined us Wednesday night in Atlanta and we all three attended the cocktail opening of the Atlanta Homes & Lifestyles Luxury Living Show at Phipps Plaza.  It was great to catch up with editor Clint Smith while we were there.  Thursday we headed out to Scott’s Antique Market for the day and then Paige and AK drove home and I came back to Birmingham.  Friday we all caught up on office work and meetings.  On Saturday, Hannon and I packed up and went to Silverock Cove at Smith Lake for the day, where we set up a mini-Tracery shop during the Dock at the Rock event.

Whew!  What a week…here’s hoping this one is a little more low key!  We tried to snap plenty of photos along the way last week to document all the activity, here are a few:

Atlanta, part 2

 

As Paige mentioned the other day, she and I spent most of last week in Atlanta.  We got so much accomplished!  We were in town first and foremost for the always amazing Scott’s Antique Market, where we picked up literally a truckload full of goods for various projects we’re working on as well as some great new pieces for our both of our shop locations.

Want to see some of our finds?

This beautiful beaded crystal chandelier is headed to a Master Bedroom of a house we are designing in Auburn, Alabama.

 

 

This pair of mis-matched crunchy leather chairs are headed to the new Sales Center at Silverock Cove on Smith Lake in Alabama.  How cool are they?

 

 

One of our favorite things to do at Scott’s is to browse the HUGE tables full of vintage prints.  There are so many!  We picked up a great collection of these botanical prints to frame in a giant grid in the Living Room of a lake home we are designing, also at Silverock Cove.

Our trip wasn’t all work…Paige’s birthday was this past Saturday (Happy Birthday P!) and it was also the 10th year anniversary of when Paige met her husband Mark.  Paige and Mark were living in Atlanta at the time, so they invited their friends to rejoin them at Taqueria del Sol where they first met on her birthday.  We all had a great time!

 

After Taqueria, we walked across the bridge (if you haven’t been to the Westside Provisions District in Atlanta, you MUST go…such a cool place!) and visited what’s become one of our favorite places to eat (and drink wine too!), Abbatoir.  The atmosphere at this place is amazing…we always leave kind of wishing we’d designed it because it’s just so good.

 

I have this slightly dorky–okay, REALLY dorky habit–of taking iPhone pics of public restrooms that I think are cool…here’s Abbatoir’s contribution:

That sink is pretty amazing, right?

Until next time, Atlanta!
