ATLANTA HOMES & LIFESTYLES





Have you guys seen the cover of AH&L this month?  As somebody who adores white interiors it was the MOTHERLOAD!

It features a beautiful home in Rosemary Beach designed by Melanie Turner.  It's a stunner y'all. 


I have always loved this gorgeous wallpaper from Schumacher.

Oh Melanie.....you got some talent girl.

Next up is Dawne Raulet Hall who is a stockbroker turned artist.

She took a 1930's fishing cottage in Lake Burton and turned it into just plain WOW.


Starting with gallons of white paint to lighten up the wood paneling it was transformed into a place I could call home:)


Love the mix of Ikea chairs with "found objects".

I had to find out more about Dawn and her art and I was not disappointed.


When I saw this one I slapped my head in an ah ha moment remembering designer Monique Gibson's work.


Remember this?


And I created this design board.....


So now I know who my new "art crush" is!

Full circle.


I am in love with her paintings.

In fact one of these would be the perfect piece in my ORC.  Dang I wish she was my neighbor and we shared casseroles and wine together.

Dawne.....you would like me.....I would make you laugh while you painted and and we could be besties.

In Atlanta you can find Dawne's work at Huff Harrington Home

I feel a serious obsession coming on.  Maybe even some stalking.

I hate when I get like this....kind of reminds me of when I was little and my shoelaces had to be tied in perfect bows that were exactly even on both sides.

No exceptions.

Are you guys ready for Wednesday?  
The start of the ORC.

I have got to get my butt in gear because there is some serious talent on this list and I am sure they are way ahead of me with the process.

It is going to be a 10 on the Wizometer today!

Of course she would like you (probably already does). Need to pick up that mag and obsess along with you.

I love it when people leave their professions to follow their talents! She's amazing.

Thanks for featuring Dawne's gorgeous work, Sherry! Isn't her lake home something spectacular? As you can imagine, we just adore her (talent included!) & she's so fun to work with.

Thank you for this post, Sherry!! And, I must show you my very own Dawne Raulet piece...it's only 8" x 8" but is drop dead killer and one of my all-time faves. She has great style...as do you!

Have I ever mentioned you are my favorite person ever? Seriously. You make me laugh every single day. Beautiful inspiration as well!

Barbara Moore said...

Wow, beautiful art! My take away here though...I went home after reading this yesterday and took the slipcover off of my Ikea chair...I like it SO much better! Thanks :)

I am with you on this post all the way, Gorgeous interiors, with so much character and warmth added by great textures. The artwork is definitely something you need in your space. I think it is time for a fan letter to Dawn from YOU.

Oh my god, i'm gonna die from artist envy. Her work is insanely wonderful... We'll both have to crush on her. Love the other white rooms too... stunning.

A white theme is always a classic, in my opinion. It's timeless beauty can turn a boring house into a sophisticated one. But in all of this, my favorite part is the sliding glass door. It's very inviting, especially since it connects to a garden or a porch. That will definitely be a good place to have a nice cup of coffee or just a place to relax.
