To see more of this gorgeous home go to Hampden Road - you won't be disappointed!
Amazing how much these green drapes add to this room.
Look out the left window - love that house covered in ivy!
Love the black lattice and the circular window in this courtyard. (image via Porchlight Interiors - Vogue Living)

Les Indiennes now offers upholstered furniture - love these daybeds and chairs.
Gorgeous pillows from John Robshaw. I think the Spring 09 collection is one of the best yet with lots of happy pinks!

Renovate a couple of caves? Leave the corporate world behind? You see Michael of Oia Santorini had a dream that spanned over 20 years, a dream to wake up each morning to a spectacular Santorini view. Above is one of the two cave homes he and his family are renovating. Love this blue door. Below is the spectacular view of his dreams.
His blog, Oia Santorini, is about "adventures, trials & tribulations, sheer joy, wonder, frustration, inspiration and self discovery..." Below is a picture of the mules who move away the dirt and the rocks, bag-by-bag.
A special application of plastic and mesh prevents moisture problems that can cause the interior paint to peel away in the winter.
I'm looking forward to following this blog as the renovation continues and to vicariously enjoying these incredible views along the way.
Cheers to dreams, to paths contemplated, to journeys taken!

Beautiful bureau and artwork.
Here is the Hickory Chair Invisible table by Mariette Himes Gomez that I've seen in stores currently for $640 - $780. These were priced at $300 a piece.
Vintage cans converted into light fixtures. If you don't live in Atlanta, there's DIY potential with these.
Loved this iron bench. If I lived there I would have bought it on the spot.
One of a unique pair of lamps. Savvy Snoot has a second store in Alpharetta. Maybe on my next trip...
Couldn't resist taking this photo below.
It's the hip bathroom in Star Provisions, a market/restaurant near Savvy Snoot. Love the acid lemon walls, the leather bench and hexagonal tiles. The food was terrific too!

Love this mod office and the patterned carpeting. The glass desk keeps it center stage.
This upholstered bed is so fun! Love the tiled accent wall below.
It's amazing what a difference the addition of a simple detail like gold edging can make to a chair or other piece of furniture.
More details that make a statement - the multi-colored trim on the curtains pulls in all the colors from the upholstery.
How could you not be happy in this room?
