Design.........Atlanta

ATLANTA..........Mecca for Design
Finally getting around to sharing what captured my eye, come join me!
 My brilliant friend Lisa has an eye like no other, anywhere. During her antiquing excursions to France her eye will look at something in such a fresh way. Her ability to see a repurpose in an object is unparalleled. Case in point.....what would you do if you came across 100's of floor slabs salvaged from an ancient church in Belgium? Would you see tables? Lisa did and after a few years she is down to these. One single and one triple came back to the shop with me
 Let's do it again.......you come across woven filtration mats for olive oil, originating in Spain. Do you say to yourself "This mat would be a great table?!"  For me, not in a million years!
 Her metalworker is kept very very busy

The innovative Westside Urban Market has killer restaurants and shops surrounded by creative grounds

 We have a contemporary landscape installation upcoming where we will square the tree canopies

 Lighting effect created with ceiling chandelier surrounds at the giftmart

 Loved these books
 For an interior client this photographic series for a large white wall with a soaring ceiling

 You have probably seen these glass hanging containers before, typically embellished with air plants. Housing a battery operated votive was interesting to me. Wouldn't these be pretty tucked into your Christmas tree?
 What makes this an appealing arrangement are the textural contrasts and multi-colored foliage
Atlanta is full of artisans. Here is a table top my friend Dave crafted from real zinc. I purchased several and have one remaining waiting for a perfect base
 A 7' garden statue circa 1920, was soooo tempted to bring her home
 Circa 1930 secretary. Love the lines and the color combination

 Pallet art. In a beach or lake cottage
 The next three images are from another artisan friend, Mary. Photographic mages manipulated, enlarged and coated in a high gloss resin.

The Kate Moss is particularly intriguing. Each tiny block is of one of Mary's photograph's. What I love is the personalization she can craft. With any image she will create this graphic. Imagine these of your children


Am embracing the trend of multiple chandeliers, particularly hung low
In front of the Ritz Carlton.......simple and eye-catching.

Wishing you a wonderful week!
Debra
