"Atlanta Homes & Lifestyles . . . "
Just a quick shout-out for one of my favourite design magazines - Atlanta Homes & Lifestyles - and this wonderful home from a recent issue. Great colours. Beautiful textiles. Antique furnishings. Enjoy a look at a beautiful home . . .
"There are a lot of new houses in Atlanta that are built to look old, but there
are few that actually exude an air of permanence and a sense of longevity. The
new Buckhead home of Jeff and Lisa Martin, and their three active
teenage sons, is one that succeeds at both."
"Much of the credit goes to the design team assembled to create the English-style,
Edwin Lutyens-inspired home which replaced a forlorn 1950s ranch that
previously occupied the grounds. Designer Beth Webb, architect Peter Block,
builders Shaba Derazi and Jim Meathe of Y.M. Derazi Custom Homes and
landscape architect John Howard were the Martins’ collaborators of choice in
creating a new “old” house—one ﬁlled with energy and life, and well-suited for
a modern family. Much of the home’s energy and life, in fact, comes from
the natural light that ﬂoods the residence throughout the day."
"'Simplicity was the Martins’ mantra,' Webb adds. From the lime-washed oak ﬂoors
and the plaster walls to the exacting execution of the architectural detailing, the sum
of the parts create a whole of timelessness."
Hope everyone is having a great weekend,
