Southern Living Idea House

This year one of the Southern Living Idea Homes was built in Senoia, GA, which is about twenty minutes from our house.  We have been anxiously waiting for it to open.  One of our friends, David Boyd, Jr., had his artwork featured in the home.  He was one of the artist mentioned in the Idea Home article in this month's Southern Living.  He is an amazing artist and married to the lovely and beautiful Julie Knott.  She is one of my bff's here in Georgia, and she and David are awesome couple!  David has a blog, Compelled to Paint, that has his latest paintings and photographs.  Please click here to check out his work on his blog or click his name above to go to his website.

Below you will find some of my favorite pictures from the article.  If you get the chance to visit the Idea House, I would suggest you spend some time in downtown Senoia.  There are some very cute boutiques and antique stores.  I would also suggest eating at Founder's Restaurant for lunch or dinner.  Jim and I love going there for a date night.  The atmosphere is great and so is the food.  Be sure to order their Fried Green Tomatoes with goat cheese.  You will not be disappointed!

I love the sea grass ottoman.

What a great color!  I may paint the island in the kitchen this color.

Great idea for a family calendar!
