Sandy Springs: That's Italian!
Il Giallo Osteria and Bar in Sandy Springs is a chef-forward Italian experience located close to all of Atlanta's action but with the unusual appeal of plenty of free parking (yes, it is a big deal in this valet and paid parking-crazy town) in a handsome, open space. Chef and co-owner Jamie Adams features fresh, homemade pasta in his open-kitchen for diners who enjoy a little cooking show entertainment with their meal. Adams' agnolotti with brown butter and sage has been featured on Food Network's The Best Thing I Ever Ate, but there are plenty of other culinary delights on offer including polpette turkey and duck meatballs, a distinctive calamari studded with capers, and a short rib ravioli and a rotating cast of pasta dishes that make this a local favorite. With a talented pastry chef onboard, desserts are just as notable and some of the stars of the show, including the strawberry jam and mascarpone strawberry pizza, bomboloni and a decadent hazelnut bar like a European candy bar with a haute twist.

Luxury reins in this Naples, Florida, backyard, which features a lushly landscaped pool and hot tub. A water feature provides tranquil sound for guests to enjoy while they lounge on the lanai. Stately architecture with Classical details and a pink stucco facade fits the Florida setting.
Stone and glass blend on the facade of this modern home, which connects to its rugged, secluded site through its generous use of natural and organic materials, as well as broad expanses of glass that open the interiors to sweeping views. A stone fence creates a sinuous line that draws the eye to the clean, modern structure.

Transitional Master Bathroom Boasts City Views From Soaking Tub
