This is the first spread of the feature in the Atlanta Homes & Lifestyles February 2009 edition.

Foyer 2

This are my shots of the foyer, with a view back to the Grand Salon...


This shot is looking form the Grand salon to the front door .. I love how the circle effect of the stairs is continued over the door...

AH&L does a great job at supplying the components. Stan Topal is a fabulous designer!! I love the play of dark and light in this room, as well as the dramatic fireplace by Francois & Co. They have such amazing fireplaces. I love seeing them in homes around Atlanta.


Here is my shot of the library. It allows you to focus on the ceiling and the parquet floors, both of which are beautiful!

This is the keeping room. I do not have a shot of this room. One of the designers, Mary Allison Buzzell, is a friend of mine. She is such a cute new mom, and she is the author of The Buzz Interiors (Great blog! Check it out!) Here is a link to Gilstrap Edwards Interior Design

Here is the Breakfast area. it is so beautifully decorated, my photo can't even compare :)

Designed by Liz Williams and Bowdre George Liz Williams Interiors


Here is my photo of the kitchen. It was done by Design Galleria, and is so amazing. I cannot find a picture of it from the showhouse, but I wish I could.

And finally, on to the master.

It's so luxurious!

Design by Douglas Weiss Interiors

And one last thing. I want to show a photo of one of the Guest Suites.

I absolutely adore this room! If I had a bedroom to design, I would want it just like this. It was done by Beth Webb of Beth Webb Interiors, and Nancy Pendergast (Now nancy Pendergast Duffey), who was with Summerour Interiors. I am not sure if she is still there, as she has opened HER OWN STORE!! It's called Scout for the Home. It's at the corner of East Andrews and Roswell Road. I haven't been in the store, YET, but I will be there soon. I drove by the front of it the other day and it is so beautiful. Please go check it out, I know I will :)

Read Mary Allison's post about the opening of Scout....

I hope you all enjoyed the tour of this amazing home!

Enjoy the snow here in Atlanta :)
