Southern Charm

Sometimes I leaf through my new magazines and then throw them on the pile to be fully read later. Sometimes I like a particular interior but forget about it until it pops up later for further consideration. That was the case with this house in Georgia designed by Furlow Gatewood that was featured in Veranda two years ago. Maybe it resonates now that I own more antiques and art or maybe because I have blue and white on the brain.  It’s worth taking a second look regardless. Mr. Gatewood definitely has a magic touch when it comes to design but then again, he’s worked with the best, John Rosselli.  I hope someone is reshooting this amazing house so we see more. You know, as is the case with all antique dealers, it’s probably undergone a complete transformation in the time since these photos were published. 
“Antiquing is the best entertainment I have down here.  If you don’t count decorating that is, and dogs, and peacocks.” – Furlow Gatewood

    House is simple outside, but the high ceilings change the game for original expectations once inside.

    Hope those potted hydrangeas lining the drive have drip.

    I love that first photo. I think it’s because I had never seen artwork framed against subway tile…or actually subway tile used as anything other than a kitchen backsplash. Regardless, I love it.

    Also really liked the formal living room. It’s really polished with the white sofa and neatly placed blue and white, but the books and antiques give it a slight “worn in” feel that I particularly enjoy.

    Thanks for a great post!

    A big thanks to Heather for sharing another great post.
    As I to share a love for blue and white this interior as sent me day dreaming. The first thing I plan to do when I get back to Shelter Isalnd on Wednesday is to dust off a terra cotta pot from the side of the shed and plant some hydrangea’s in it!

    The exterior of this home looks very similar to one we saw in the Netherlands. Lovely.
