Designer Beth Erwin is a woman after my own heart. Her sense of style tends to gravitate toward the traditional but it’s not stuffy or stiff. It’s a balanced look of casual elegance and it seems to work well even in her own Atlanta home located in the prestigious Buckhead neighborhood. Beth Erwin’s work has been featured several times in Atlanta Homes and Lifestyles Magazine, but for the December issue she opens up her abode to share a glimpse of how she’s decorated her colonial home for the holidays. A festive garland and tree look right at home in the family room (so does their dog, Bunny), while small arrangements of fresh flowers are strategically placed in others. The online article mentions “an evergreen garland festooned with gold burlap ribbon cascades down the entry stairwell, and white hydrangeas and green apples fill heirloom silver vessels as centerpieces in the dining room.” The website features just the few pictures shared here. They whet my appetite with a desire to see more of the home (a sign that it might be time to renew my subscription). It’s clear that Erwin prefers to decorate with natural materials (again, woman…own heart….). The touches are small and tasteful but the home looks nothing short of beautiful.
