My favorite room

From September of 2009 through September of 2011, my husband and I worked with our amazing project team to design and build a custom home.  During the process, my architect (Stan Dixon) was featured in the May of 2010 issue of Atlanta Homes & Lifestyles, and one of the sketches shown in the feature was the outdoor room that he designed for my housePhoto credit: Erica George Dines, via Atlanta Homes & Lifestyles.

From sketch to reality….come on over to La Dolce Vita to see how it turned out in my guest post on ‘My Favorite Room’.  http://paloma81.blogspot.com/2012/08/my-favorite-room-things-that-inspire.html

  2. I can see why it's your favorite room - it's truly stunning, Holly. I especially love the ceiling and fireplace details.

  3. Beautifully done and detailed!!! You must live out there!!!


  4. Wow, Holly, I am completely smitten. So many beautiful details and I LOVE the beadboard ceiling - adds such interest to the space. I don't think I'd ever go insides...gorgeous!!

  5. can't wait to hop over there, holly.

    come visit soon.


  6. Holly,
    I popped over to see the posting - I really love the style and finishes you used. We are currently designing a lanai for a home we just purchased {and are renovating}. I've wondered about a fan for the area, but wondered if we would use it. How much have to used the fan?

  7. Just beautiful Holly, I can hear the laughter from the pool and can invision you and your friends enjoying our beautiful fall!

  8. Oh Holly, You'd know that my favorite picture looks back at the main house. It's like 3 picture frames: a big blind arch over narrow niche with French door on the right which I'm sure is an enfilade, wider opening to the left with Zen view of the house's complex curves and straight lines, then the view framed by the big arch. The room has curves, horizontals, verticals, and diagonals, tied together with color, a tiny bit modern I think.

  9. Wow! That is really a cool page. Thanks a lot for the share.

  10. Holly I thought of you when photographing my current inspired home post. You will appreciate the incredible attention to detail that went into this home.. It's really spectacular and will be a series of posts.. I took 300 photos!

  11. Sketching is such an amazing skill, one I wish to perfect one day! Beautiful project!

    Love, Jamie Herzlinger

  12. Oh, it is absolutely fantastic! Thank you sooo much for sharing it with us!! And yes, I grew up in Albany, Georgia and live in Charlotte, NC ... so I can totally agree that a fan really is a necessity for an outdoor space. ;-)
