On The Market

Tuesday, February 19, 2019


This classic Brookhaven residence has just hit the market! The cherry on the top are the interiors, designed by Atlanta native and highly sought-after talent Miles Redd. House Beautiful featured the well appointed rooms in their February 2016 issue, with Miles sharing the design details selected for his clients, who happened to be his parents, Buddy and Sue Redd. Listing info here + I've written previously about Miles here.


From House Beautiful of the Dining Room pictured above:

"Redd brought in a breakfront to anchor the space and had it painted in one of his mother's favorite colors, an 18th century-inspired chalky green. A table skirt made from taffeta is a soft contrast to the mahogany ladder-back chairs."

""Mom is from Virginia," says Redd. "Her silver is collected, shared, and worshipped." Heirloom Tiffany & Co. silver and D. Porthault linens decorate the table."

"Design of any kind begins with focused listening to elicit the who, what, and why of the given endeavor. The hope for beauty sufficient to capture and excite the imagination, and to not let it go, emerges more often than not from the intense conversations at the beginning of every undertaking." -- Ray Booth, Evocative Interiors


The work of the architecture & design firm McAlpine has been my subject of numerous blog posts, including the release of Poetry of Place, an all-encompassing text exploring the expert appeal of author Bobby McAlpine's residential masterpieces. Interior designer Ray Booth, a partner in McAlpine, steps into the spotlight and presents the very personal design process within his accomplished portfolio, a comprehensive guide that has culminated through the pages of his premiere hardcover book, Evocative Interiors. Booth's formal training as an architect serves as a touchstone, providing a unique design point of view throughout the 12 client commissions featured, a mix of city, coastal and country locales.


"To be afforded the luxury of forming and fine-tuning every aspect of a home, inside and out, to the last detail and nuance, uniquely for those who will inhabit it fully every day is a designer's ultimate challenge and happiest responsibility. Therein lies the possibility of realizing the evocative ideal - a home instilled with a reflection of the heart, made manifest in the surroundings." -- Ray Booth, Evocative Interiors

On The Market

Tuesday, October 16, 2018


Two separate units located within Regents Park, an enclave of sophisticated residences steps from Peachtree Road, have hit the market. What caught my eye from the interior photos of both listings is the unmistakable mark of a masterclass in interior design. The designer responsible is one of the foremost talents of today, John Oetgen.

Mr. Oetgen excels at crafting a client room that balances at the intersection of distinctive contrasting characteristics. To me, his rooms radiate luxe and livability, include antiques & art that range from fine to familiar, enveloped in a style setting that can be old world to quite contemporary.

Unit 20 (pictured above) was featured in the February 2017 issue of Veranda and Unit 23 (pictured below) was published in the September/October 2017 of Southern Home.

The Bolinas, CA home of photographer Thayer Gowdy is featured in the Fall 2018 issue of Domino magazine. Readers of this blog are familiar with Thayer, as I have posted about her & her work numerous times. And it seems fitting to be discussing Thayer now, as my 13th wedding anniversary is a week away and she shot our wedding day photos!

Domino includes the renovation details of Thayer's current abode in Bolinas. FB keeps Thayer & I connected, and she has been posting progress of her design transformation throughout the year. I can attest that this project has absolutely been a labor of love -- with the labor supplied by Thayer's talented friends.

Never one to shy away from a challenge, check out my previous post from 2014 highlighting Thayer's remodel of her San Fran home.
