Ziggy Stardust with an mid-century Italian mirror

Tell us a little (or a lot) about your home and the people who live there: I purchased my home on the morning of New Years Eve of 2019 and three months later, I lost a 15-year career to the pandemic. I spent the whole of the lockdown redoing the house and making it my own. The house had been flipped and drained of all character and personality so I changed that. The majority of the work I’ve done on my own, using contractors for the plumbing and electrical upgrades prior to the lockdown beginning. The house is a part of a 1956 neighborhood where the Atlanta Braves once resided.

Palm Springs inspired. Mid-century meets the South.

I have a unique, vibrant, colorful, and organized personality. My home is an expression of the things I love; sophisticated use of color, vintage touches, high quality mid-century furniture intermixed with joy and whimsy.
