Instead of opening and closing a big, old, clunky, plastic cooler at the tailgate party, pack a wheel barrel in the back of the truck, wheel it a few feet away from the truck, and then fill it with ice and beverages. This will also free up valuable space in the back for serving food or offering guests more spots to sit and relax.
If you want a scene-y, vibrant, stylish stay for your Alpharetta visit, you couldn't do better than The Hotel at Avalon, a hip Autograph Collection spot with a buzzy bar and lobby scene and a destination-worthy in-house restaurant, Atlanta favorite South City Kitchen, a great way to sample smart regional cuisine if you are feeling too lazy to head beyond the hotel's oasis-like ambiance (which could happen). Situated within the Avalon community, the hotel offers extreme walkability to the great food and shopping options at this new urbanist development. A pretty outdoor pool, in-house Starbucks, complimentary bicycles and coffee and tea in the lobby every morning, make this beautiful space feel like a cozy-but-cool home away from home.
To make these colorful treats blend watermelon chunks, then pulse, strain and pour into small paper cups. Top each cup with a thick slice of kiwi. Place the popsicle stick through the center of the fruit, then freeze. Once frozen, just remove the paper cup and serve!
Designer Kerrie Kelly's creative juices were flowing when she designed this ultra-cool living room in shades of yellow, gray and white. The room is reminiscent of a 1950's lounge, but with a slightly industrial flair, given the lighting fixtures, table and chairs and whitewashed brick accent wall. The space invites one to sit down, relax and have a cup of joe.
Pale blue penny tiles grace the walls of this contemporary bathroom, creating a cool ambiance. A striking zebra-wood vanity provides a stark, dark contrast to the cool walls. Streamlined round mirrors and simple cabinet hardware finish off this beautiful bathroom.
After being out in the hot Georgia sun, there's nothing like coming inside to a cool gray sitting area. Here, twin armchairs and a matching sofa provide comfortable seating, while a coffee table keeps sweet tea in reach.
What an inspiring house - the combination of the cool gray looks great with the stone. A vibrant landscape filled with year-round color and beautifully diverse foliage. There is always something new blooming each season!
