sweet retreats

WHILE I WON’T PRETEND THAT ATLANTA winters come anywhere close to touching the harsh conditions and bitter breezes of the northeast, can we all concur that this was one of the longest, dreariest winters on recent record?Our April issue promises to cure any remnant of seasonal affective disorder, thanks to Melanie Turner, Carole Weaks and Phoebe Howard, each of whom have mastered the art of fashioning vacation retreats that are pretty, practical and packed with personality—similar to the primary residences they design, but with unequivocally better views, cleaner breezes, and a healthy dash of fun.Escapism, of course, comes in many different forms, and the change of scenery doesn’t necessarily have to come from travel. After a recent residential move, our family has found that devoting one room to play—from puzzles…
