real life

One of my neighbors told me the other day that we don’t show enough “real houses” in the pages of BH&G. She said some of the projects we publish make her feel bad about her own home. I truly hate to hear that. Trust me, if you walked into my house right now it would not be photo-worthy enough for any magazine. I still have the bargain curtain panels in the living room that I tacked up as a stopgap privacy measure when I first moved in—and yes, they are literally hung up with tacks. My storm doors either stick or fly open in the slightest breeze when they aren’t secured by wire. My front threshold is a chipped-paint eyesore. All these problems, big and small, are on my ongoing…

forever in fashion

Not just a place to buy—a place to be. That’s what Ann and Sid Mashburn wanted to create when they expanded their Atlanta flagship store. The couple, known for their eponymous clothing designs and a signature style built on luxe basics with a quirky edge (like African beads layered with a classic button-down shirt), already had a mini style empire flourishing in five cities and online. In their new space they have room to offer hospitality (there’s a coffee bar) and to stock more of the things they love. Like Allyn Scura eyewear, melamine plates you’d swear were French ceramics, and Ann’s first kids’ clothing line (a longtime dream for the mom of five girls).
