In the affluent Buckhead neighborhood of Atlanta, Georgia there was once a home that needed a bit of updating. When a woman and her daughter from San Francisco decided to relocate to Buckhead, they moved into a circa 1930’s colonial home and called upon architect friend William B. Litchfield and designer Jackye Lanham to make a few updates. The homeowner was raised in Atlanta so moving back was considered sort of a “coming home”. Coincidently, she was able to find a home located on the very street she once lived while growing up as a child. It’s a wonderful thing to have such fond memories of the neighborhood where you grew up and to be able to call it home once again.One of the owner’s special requests was to have an interesting staircase. After much research, her architect found an intricate design from a home in Maine that could be recreated. “It has a contemporary, graphic appeal, but it’s based on a classic motif,” Litchfield says.
