Integrated appliances and crisp, clean lines give this open-concept kitchen a streamlined, airy appeal. A custom stainless steel vent hood hangs above the professional gas range, resulting in a cooking station built for a chef. The in-island sink and double oven form a perfect work triangle, and a pot filler above the cooktop offers added convenience.
A kitchen island is a great kitchen addition that is useful for preparing meals and is also an ideal place for the kids to do homework or have a snack after school. To keep them from kicking off their shoes and leaving them in the kitchen, a children’s shoe station was created just inside the kitchen and works great for corralling the mess.
Soft grays mix with the natural wood tones in this rustic, yet modern cabin retreat. Integrated appliances and a modern island with a sleek waterfall edge bring a streamlined look to the space, while timbered walls and ceiling beams emphasize the home's natural setting and log cabin feel. Windows are strategically placed to allow the chef to enjoy the view while working at the cooking station or sink.
The Parkers wanted to make sure that there was something for everyone in their new living space, so Chip and his team made sure to include lots of seating. The living area also includes a multi-use ottoman (pictured) for everyone in the family including the dog with a nail salon, gaming station and dog bed. This creates a central area for the kids to work and spend time with their parents, as seen on DIY Network's Elbow Room.
The scene-y Bully Boy in Atlanta's Old Fourth Ward, is modeled after a favorite childhood restaurant with the same name, fondly remembered by Concentrics Restaurants owner Bob Amick. Combing shareable plates from chef Michael Bertozzi, a beachy vibe and a very low key ambiance (translation: service can be spotty and the check-in at the hostess station needs work), this new Atlanta restaurant in the shadow of another Concentrics spot, the beloved Two Urban Licks is worth a try for its unique combo of seafood and global interests. The blue crab fried rice is a must.
What do you get when you combine works from a billion dollar art collection and a decadent, seasonal menu masterminded by French Laundry vet and executive chef Christopher Grossman? You get one of Atlanta's most memorable nights out in the tony Buckhead neighborhood. Atlas, on the ground floor of the St. Regis hotel has been open since 2015 but in spring 2019 adds a gorgeous glassed-in "outdoor" dining room reminiscent of vintage European train stations or Paris's Ritz dining room. There is live music in the Tavern Wednesday through Friday, so giddy dancing and general merriment is likely afoot, next to a subdued main dining room where you can dine beneath a Picasso or a Chagall. Locally-sourced ingredients pay homage to Georgia's red clay bounty and inventive, indulgent dishes like a foie gras jus with agnolotti and black truffles and trout with garlic-braised kale and mushrooms alongside pastry chef Christian Castillo's desserts make for destination dining. Oneophiles should check in with personable sommelier Samuel Gamble who offers more than 80 wines by the glass and can expand your vino knowledge exponentially in an evening.
