Atlantans, mark your calendars. Atlanta Homes & Lifestyles High Style High Rise Tour kicks off this Thursday, March 8. Taking place at The Residences at W Atlanta-Downtown, the tour (which, by the way, benefits the High Museum of Art) features six apartments that have been decorated by a talented pool of Atlanta designers: Amy Morris; Susan Ferrier; Bill Peace; Barbara Westbrook; Kerry Howard; and Michel Boyd. And to make the tour even more interesting, each designer collaborated with a particular retailer to help furnish their respective apartments. Retail partners include R Hughes, The Mercantile, Redefined Home Boutique, Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams, Bradley-Hughes, and Room and Board.
I got a preview of the apartments yesterday, and I must commend all of the designers for their efforts. Both the designers and retailers made each apartment feel warm and comfortable, not always an easy task in a contemporary high rise building. Go see it for yourself and I don't think you'll be disappointed.
The tour runs through April 1. For more information, visit the tour's website or that of Atlanta Homes & Lifestyles.
The bedroom above plus the living room banquette at the top are part of Amy Morris' show house apartment, designed in conjunction with The Mercantile.
Susan Ferrier and her retail collaborator R Hughes are responsible for this chic unit.
Designer Michel Boyd, working with Bradley-Hughes, gave his unit an eclectic yet sleek look.
Bill Peace worked with Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams on this masculine, contemporary unit that is filled with amazing art. You can see two works by Louise Nevelson above the credenza. (Art from Alan Avery Art.)
Being a good Southern boy, Kerry Howard designed his apartment for a modern day Scarlett O'Hara- hence the pink accents. Redefined Home Boutique was Howard's design partner.
