After a quick couple of hours inside of Market, and Dayka’s second tutorial of day two, how-to’s, I was privileged to a VIP tour of Atlanta’s finest shopping venues. Our first stop was a marvelous little spot, South of Market. Located on Peachtree, (isn’t everything! If you haven’t been to Atlanta EVERYTHING is on some form of a Peachtree.)
What I loved the most about this store is the sizes. It suited the Gates InteriorDesign ideal and philosophy, GO BIG, OR GO HOME! The scale of all their furnishings and accessories were over the top, and well displayed. Large accessories are dramatic, and make a statement, and this store was just that, dramatic!
In true Atlanta style, most of the furnishings were upholstered in beautiful linens, adorned with nail heads, and finished off with small, but distinct details.
This photo above was by far my favorite. With all of Gates Interior Design’s favorites, simple and clean, large furnishings and accessories, no clutter and ORANGE (my favorite)!!
After South of Market we headed over to another lovely store called Armour and company, located on N. Highland. Dayka and I had a lovely conversation with Jamie the owner, and I was surprised to find out that she isn’t a designer. She wanted a retail store, and loved furniture, so it just seemed a good fit. Wow! Her stored is meticulously pulled together, and arranged like a pro!
