During my last visit I passed by their new office and paid a quick peek inside. They were so kind to us randoms just stopping by and we were told it will be photographed soon for their site. I'll be sure to update you all on that.
Can I just say, it was - amazing. I could work AND live here and be very happy. There were so many fabulous finishes and beautiful dee-tails.
I quickly snapped this shot of the center area with the gorgeous marble wall. I've always said if you want marble in your kitchen, put it on the walls. Hard to picture the light on the right but it was massive, made of resin, and had a few other friends to go with. Made in Italy (of course). Reclaimed rough hewn boards left in their natural state for ceiling and reclaimed wood on the floors as well.
Pecky cypress on the door and when you pulled its stout frame, you thought for sure the Wizard was standing behind ready to grant you your wish.
If you don't already know Tracery Interiors, be sure to check them out too. I met Doug Davis in their Mountain Brook location and being the dork that I am says, "I love your pins!"
One of my favorite communities we passed by on our way downtown was Abbey Road. I about lost it seeing those three houses perched up so stoic and stylish overlooking downtown.
Speaking of little kids, remember when you would watch movies and there was a scene overlooking views like this and wonder where is that and why isn't there one by my house?
Outside of my lovely iphone shots, all of these gorgeous images are courtesy of their website you can visit HERE. I picked a few favorites but there is so much more to see my pretties.
Including sketches they have on the board right now...what lucky soul will live here? We're knocking on your door come Halloween for a treat.
The Springhouse Restaurant on Lake Martin, Alabama. A family trip in our future?
"let the sunshine in"
Is this where Ted Turner lives?
And back (LOVE)...
A crazy beautiful home they designed along 30A and was featured in the book 30A Style.
CHECK out the rug. Peacock Pavers concrete flooring made to look like antique Italian travertine. My favorite floor covering, out of Montgomery, Alabama, and just wonderful to work with!
One of the things I adore about their spaces is how much creed they give to the "passing through" areas, like stairways. Think about it. Stairways don't get a lot of respect in smaller homes with regard to windows. yet we're up and down them every single day, ten times a day. They get it. And moreover, perfect for hanging your favorite mack daddy chandelier. Another room I'd give a lot of creed to is the laundry room. It would be stocked full of windows dripping in natural light - seeing as you spend so much time there! Mine is a hole. Something has to be done about it.
This is my winner winner chicken dinner, hot damn country ham, favorite pick. Just goes to show what exterior lighting, all lighting, does to set the mood. Change your lighting, change your life.
Oh Dungan Nequette and Birmingham, you are very lovely. It always makes me a little bit sad for my friend, who lived here for 12 years, when we visit. As much as we love where we live now, Birmingham is a go anywhere, do anything in ten minutes city with hundreds of homes like the ones in our sweet little neighborhood. You must visit and shop and eat till you drop soon.
Have a beautiful weekend. They come and go so quickly. We've got big plans for this one, a lemonade stand, look. out. Here's wishing you and yours a blessed, glorious and go-by-slow one!
