ESCAPE: WHAT DOES IT LOOK AND FEEL like to you? As a working mom of three active young boys, escape can be as simple as the sound of silence when their heads hit the pillow each night, or as elaborate as an adults-only getaway with my husband—where our drink order is the most pressing decision we must make each day.But shouldn’t the notion of escape begin within our own personal dwellings? Sure, “self-care” and “Kondo-ing” are buzzwords for 2019, but we like to believe that proper, house-loving Atlantans have always taken that home-as-refuge mindset to heart.In our April issue, we explore three elegant, restful and relaxing retreats, from Lake Rabun and the Golden Isles to Alys Beach. In each of these projects, creating a sense of order and ease was…

ATLANTA HOMES & LIFESTYLES: Welcome to Atlanta! We’ve visited your showrooms in the past in High Point, New York, and AmericasMart, and we're thrilled to hear that you’ve opened a stand-alone showroom for Julian Chichester and Mr Brown London at ADAC. Why Atlanta?JULIAN CHICHESTER: We’ve enjoyed a special relationship with Atlanta over the years. Julian Chichester and Mr Brown styles seem to resonate with Southern designers and their clients. As a furniture designer, my inspiration comes from classic English furniture-making traditions, very much updated and modernized for today. Isn’t this quite like what I’ve heard called the New South? Style steeped in tradition but entirely current, in step with our modern world.AH&L: I’ve heard Julian Chichester and Mr Brown London referred to as brother brands. What are their main differences?JC: Well,…

captivating garden gates

Landscape architect John Howard and architect D. Stanley Dixon are responsible for this award-winning garden; the ironwork beautifully frames nature beyond.ORIGINSAlthough the gate is not as old as the wheel, it has been present throughout global societies for millennia. Garden gates have been found in all ancient civilizations, and whether in Asia or Europe, cultural tastes of the period infused practical building materials to create gates both grand and humble. At this time, we are more aware of their endurance and impact than their origins.Royal RootsFrom the majestic iron-and-gold gates of Versailles and the Royal Botanic Gardens at Kew, to the stately entrances of Dumbarton Oaks and the Swan House, to the simple pickets surrounding the Smith Family Farm at the Atlanta History Center and Colonial Williamsburg, garden gates have…
