Jan Hart has this Brookhaven beauty listed. It's clean, fresh and neutral, and it's the perfect example of the styling advice I gave a few weeks ago. This home has fantastic flow and would be perfect for parties. The kitchen opens to the family room, which provides perfect space for the family to congregate. The dining room opens to a front patio, which allows guest to flow out to the front yard. I love the neutral palette and industrial accents. For more information, please contact Jan Hart with Beacham & Company, REALTORS. (Listing link here)Read More
My favorite type of house is one that rambles. A home full of quirks and character makes it impossible to forget. Atlanta has so many old homes that you walk into and feel the love as well as the home's evolution. It's the homeowner's own "Affair with a House." They love where they live so much they did not want to tear down or move, so they just kept building. It's the best part of Atlanta's architectural evolution. I love walking around with my camera and dipping through a doorway to find a large bonus room or new master suite.
As soon as I walked into this home I knew it would be a shoot full of discoveries. The main house is historic with smaller cozy rooms, and then the master is updated and modern. The dining room is huge and looks like it used to be the kitchen, and then the current kitchen is roomy and perfect for today's lifestyle. It also allowed for a large bonus room above the kitchen, so the kids have plenty of room to play. The Brookhaven lot is perfect to build (a quiet corner), but it seems such a shame to tear down something that's been so well loved and expertly renovated.

Laura Florkowski is a talented graphic designer here in Atlanta. We met almost 6 years ago when she came to work with me at Beacham & Company. We became fast friends. In the past few years we've gone through some of life's biggest transitions together. We both got engaged, planned weddings, and got married within months of each other... while sitting in the same office every day! It was so much fun watching Laura plan her wedding. She has an amazing eye and sense of design. She knew exactly what she wanted and executed it with grace and efficiency... unlike me who fumbled my way through it and had to ask her advice every five seconds. Laura's wedding went off without a hitch... except for a few sprinkles, which actually enhanced the day and made for breathtaking photography. Ever detail was perfect and they all went together beautifully.Read More
