WHICH COLORS BRING YOU JOY? If you peered into my side of the closet, the answer would be swift: navy blues, creamy whites and hints of blush. But why shouldn’t we devote as much time to expressing ourselves (and the hues that become us) through fashion as we do through the palettes that envelop our homes? Our annual “Color” issue sets aside any notion of neutrality, and instead explores the ways bold, happy hues can coexist alongside classic silhouettes (“Striking Style,” page 106) or embolden the lives of its inhabitants (“Tudor with a Twist,” page 118), from floor to ceiling. While 2018...

FOR VICKIE AND TOM KIRBO, the screened porch of their Vinings home serves as a central gathering place for both entertaining friends and enjoying family time with their two children, Scott and Mary Cate. However, the space hadn’t been updated since the Kirbos renovated their home back in 2005, so the couple decided it was time for a much-needed style refresh. Vickie, who runs the fashion blog Kirb Your Style, wasted no time in calling upon designer Shayelyn Woodbery to transform the porch, along with the rest of their home. “Vickie wanted the new design to reflect her personal style and...

The kitchen of the 2017 Southeastern Showhouse, by Design Galleria. Hardware from Matthew Quinn Collection shines in this bath. Humble Origins A native of Key West, Florida, Matthew Quinn arrived in Atlanta to study medicine at Emory University but changed course within a week. “I decided [medicine] was not for me and started design school a few days later,” he says. In 1993, he began working as a draftsman at Design Galleria Kitchen and Bath Studio, and his passion for kitchens and bathrooms bloomed. When offered the opportunity, Quinn did not hesitate to purchase the firm in 2002, and today, the Design...

posh pavilions

(PAVILION BY EMILY FOLLOWILL) ATLANTANS’ LOVE AFFAIR WITH OUTDOOR LIVING continues as more homeowners add shaded pool pavilions, outdoor structures and outbuildings that house recreational equipment, and even unsightly garbage cans, to their properties. Architect D. Stanley Dixon says homeowners are trending away from screened porches—which, though they keep out the bugs, still maintain an indoor feel—and toward open, covered structures. Pavilions are outfitted with fireplaces, radiant floor heating, ceiling heating, shutters, accordion doors and even roll-down screens for colder months. About half of architect Bradley Heppner’s projects involve stand-alone pavilions or a house with a pavilion. Parents, in particular, desire an environment...
