Open House Sunday

A Buckhead Cottage in Atlanta
built 1938
Homes in Buckhead in Atlanta Georgia range from small cottages to very large mansions.
This cottage is a jewel. It's recently been redone and decorated.
The owners have great taste.
I've never seen ladder back chairs look so good.
What do you think about having a sofa in the dining room?
Works because the table is small.
Nice sunroom. I like the lanterns hanging from the ceiling.
Very pretty kitchen. It's been redone but I like it.
I like the simple lampshade on the ceiling fixture.
I also really love that they left the bathroom original.
larger deck on the back of the house
I really like how this lower patio was created in the backyard.
What a nice place to spend a Sunday afternoon.

Love this home! I really love the colors on the walls..those windows and the fact that the bath and kitchen have not been overdone and still match the era of the house.Love the unique elements too. My best friend lives near Buckhead and always has amazing stories to tell!
Thanks for sharing!
Happy Sunday it's only going to be like 109?? :(

Thanks for a beautiful tour, Nita! You're right they have exquisite taste, and did a wonderful job with the decor!

What a gorgeous, gorgeous home. So elegant, but livable too. In Dallas the property taxes would be double what these are, what a bargain! That beautiful wooded lot is the reason my husband would pack up and move to Atlanta in a heartbeat. By the way, the yellow house sold right away. And a young couple had an inspector at the house next door yesterday. She was cute, looked sort of high maintenance, I'm sure she was drooling over all of those closets :) And for just a few thousand more they could have had this gorgeous home (sigh)

Funny that you asked the question about a sofa in the dining room. I was thinking that the table & chairs were in the living room! I love the color scheme and how they used it throughout the entire house. Beautiful.

That is really beautiful, Nita, I love it! The colours are wonderful, what could be prettier than gray and yellow? The original fixtures in the bathroom are delightful. ~Cindy

Sherry of Design Indulgence blog shared this home, too because it is in her neighborhood and she said it sold in one day.
