Sometimes I write a post about something, and all I see for the next few weeks (or even months) is the subject matter of the post. Such was the case this week – I posted about awnings earlier in the week, and when I walked my dog yesterday, I saw so many beautiful examples of awnings (in particular, metal awnings) that I had never noticed before. It is clearly an architectural element that is much loved in Atlanta!
I am not sure if this awning was original to the house, or whether it was an addition when the house was renovated, but the design is just exquisite. It is clearly not designed for weather protection (there is a covered entry just beyond), but rather to make the entrance more distinct and special. Note how it is capped by a carved stone piece – I can’t remember the name of the shape, can you? This shape is repeated in other places around the property, including the gates. Details like this really make a house incredibly special.
On another note, I receive so many inquiries from shops, blogs, architects, designers, artists, and home related vendors about advertising opportunities on the blog. Please see my advertising information page for more details on sponsorship opportunities available for the month of September.
