folder_openLIFESTYLE
I can’t recall the last time I’ve visited a home that didn’t have a sitting area in the master bedroom. I know what you are thinking—not everyone is lucky enough to have extra space in their bedroom for purely sitting, but I beg to differ.

The GATHERING ROOM on Lullwater — Accommodating. Approachable. Elegant. This family home located in one of my most favorite historic Atlanta neighborhoods, Druid Hills, is truly a work of art.

Behind the drawers and doors of this hearty sideboard are silverware trays and  shelves that…
