There is no better reason to show off your home than to help Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta. This hospital facilitates miracles every day.
It was a chilly but sunny day in the poshest part of town today. I ventured to tour these four glorious homes with my new friend, Leigh. There was so much to take in–the climbing ivy on whitewashed brick, lawns so green and lush you want to grab the closest pillow and just lay on the grass forever, and people-watch, of course. I imagine the ratio of Lexi (that is plural for Lexus, right?) to person is only surpassed at Hamptons’ beach wedding.
There are no homes more storied or historic than those that grace these streets named Habersham and Rivers. The blog Things that Inspire is much more thorough than me. I won’t try to be–I’ll just show you some pretty pictures I took before my phone died.
This is the amazing home of my friend Leigh’s best friend, Betsy. Leigh says she has always been elegant. She is kind, unassuming and humble. You can tell she has a knack for decorating, but it’s a big house to do alone! She did have some help. Oh, I forgot the man’s name (Walter someone?), but she and her husband hired Phoebe Howard to assist with all the finishing touches. Enjoy:
I have never seen such beautiful rugs in my life!
and the art. I was speechless over the art today…
minimal, elegant styling throughout…
bath for the girl…
The painting over the child’s bed was the prettiest I’ve ever seen:
The elegant master bedroom:
in love with the headboard
Leigh said she gets to crash here (the upstairs guest room) after she & Betsy have a long night out. A dream.
Even an elegant basement:
There is so much more. Maybe I’ll beg Leigh to take me back with her.
The next home is filled with wood and earth tones. Pretty darn amazing, too:
You’ve seen this bath before I think…
Love this dining room!
Kitchen not so bad, either
study & sitting room…
Have a great day,
