Welcome…

A home should welcome it’s occupants as well as its visitors.  The first impression of a home hints at what is beyond.  Here are a few of our favorites entries we have designed over the years.

Before and Afters: Southern Living 2012

Here is the second post of our new before and after series.  Remember the 2012 Southern Living Idea House we designed?  I just received some of the before photos from our friends over at Historical Concepts.  Historical Concepts was the architect for this renovation addition along with John Bynum Homes.  This project has so many moments it will have to have a second post.  Here are a few of my favorite moments in the project.

Southern Living Idea House Christmas

Happy Friday y’all! We traveled back to the idea house in Senoia, Georgia last weekend to decorate the 2012 Southern Living Idea House for Christmas. The house is now open for tours every weds-sun until December 23rd…. So go check it out. So you ready for some Christmas??? I know it is only October but I guess we are embracing the phrase the early bird gets the worm! So here goes Christmas… Ho Ho Ho!

We started on Saturday with designer and sponsor day at the Idea House. I was so excited my amazing mom and my sweet cousin Hannah joined me. It made it a wonderful day.

And then Christmas began to happen.

Lots of pom poms for the presents. Jenny, Lynn, and Kate made lots of poms pins ahead of time so we were ready to wrap. You girls could go in the professional pom pom making business.

Lynn stamped our packages for under the trees… This would never have worked for me when I was a child. I was the worst about sneaking around and figuring out my gifts.

20121012-222432.jpg
If you have a chance go check out the house. A few thanks to my Christmas Elves. Thank you Jenny, Kate, and Lynn for making pom poms. Thanks Blaine for making the super cool Pinecone snowflakes. They are awesome! Jenny and Leslie thanks for wrapping tons of gifts! And to the install elves thanks to Scott, Frank, Christina, Lynn, and my mom… You all rock! Santa is going to recruit y’all to the official elf crew!

Merry Christmas! (just a little early)

{2012 Southern Living Idea House} through our eyes, Living Room

Bess here again to share another ‘behind the scenes’ look at the Southern Living Idea House. For all of you who have the publication-you did get to see the majority of the Living Room. What you don’t realize about homes that are published is that a certain area can have one of the most amazing things/items/collections in the entire space, but if the photographer can’t get a good shot of it then it will not be published. There is an amazing piece by artist Courtney J. Garrett  behind the sofa that fell into that category & we had to share it regardless ( image below).  The piece on the mantel of the old house is Courtney’s as well.
