Above is perhaps the most beautiful home in Atlanta, the 1920s Swan House designed by architect Philip Trammell Shutze. It's definitely the most photographed.
On Thursday, August 9, from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m., Atlanta Homes & Lifestyles editor, Clinton Smith, will present Love The House You Live In: Personal Decorating, Atlanta Style, at Emory University.
From the city's real residences to homes depicted over the years in TV and movies (think Gone With the Wind and Designing Women) Smith will look at Atlanta's style -- past, present and future. Class participants will be briefed on color and style trends Smith expects to be dominant in the next few years. And the editor will also offer tips for solving pesky decorating challenges. Registration costs $79 and is available online.
BTW: the Swan House, located on the grounds of the Atlanta History Center, will be open tomorrow, July 4. Currently on view is Philip Trammell Shutze: Atlanta Classicist, Connoisseur, and Collector, a permanent exhibition that features a Chinese Export porcelain gallery, a re-creation of part of Shutze's living room, and an extensive collection of furniture and other decorative arts. Tomorrow is also opening day for the blockbuster show, Benjamin Franklin: In Search of A Better World.
