need for intrigue

IN AN ALGORITHM- AND “LIKE”-driven world in which mass appeal and one-click shopping is rewarded, the need for intrigue—in our homes, on our walls, what we wear—is real. How many times have you made an impulse purchase on Instagram or Amazon, only to have the item arrive much smaller, or not at all like you had imagined? Or, have you ever arrived at a wedding only to find another guest wearing the same dress? Compelling product—like intriguing fashions, conversation-worthy art or interiors with interesting objects—is key to avoiding the current “tourist trap,” state of shopping in which ease of access takes precedence over quality and investment. That’s one of many reasons why Atlanta Homes & Lifestyles is pleased to participate as the 2019 print media sponsor for Partners Card (see p. 16). In…

perfect palladianism

ORIGINS Pre-eminent Italian architect Andrea Palladio infused 16th-century Venice with a style rooted in the designs of ancient Greek and Roman temples. Based on the principles of symmetry and proportion, Palladio’s villas were balanced by a central pediment supported by columns that echoed the designs from 2,000 years earlier. Palladio’s Venetian creations were renowned for his windows: a central arch over two sides now commonly referred to as the Palladian window. ROYAL ROOTS Palladianism had a resurgence in Great Britain when 17th- and 18th-century architects Inigo Jones, Robert Adam and Lord Burlington populated the English countryside with lavish house estates featuring the archetypal designs accompanied by mock temples in the gardens. Although Kensington Palace was originally constructed as a Jacobean palace, subsequent Stuart and Georgian monarchs made additions that created a massive residence,…

around town with naomi von habersham

I TRY HARD TO KEEP MY EAR to the ground in hopes of learning what new design trends might be coming down the pike, and what I’ve been hearing lately has left me gobsmacked. Believe it or not, more than one person—we’re talking design authorities who have toiled in the profession for ages—has predicted that the next big thing will be some semblance of the Edwardian-redux look of the mid-1980s, which was most famously (and perhaps most notoriously) executed by those ’80s-era design darlings, Denning and Fourcade. If I could, I would insert the astonished-face emoji into my text right now. Before anyone flips out, let me say that today’s internet age just doesn’t seem like the right breeding ground for Gilded Age decor, and I sincerely doubt we’ll be indulging…
