Photoshoots And Move Ins

I am up to my eyeballs right now in another photoshoot (you should see the van!) but wanted to share with you a peek at what’s to come with a future move in.

We have been shopping, shopping, shopping and after months of dreaming and scheming have finally filled in the blanks on many of the rooms for our scheduled March move-in. The following is a snippet of what was ordered last week. I will be writing more and more about this in the following 8 weeks.

Chest Kind A Wonderful New Source For Chests

 

I am always on the look-out for great new sources to share with my clients and I just discovered a wonderful chest manufacturer: Chest Kind.

Made in Portugal and warehoused in Highpoint, NC Chest Kind caught my eye for many reasons:

  1. It is to the trade only and truly geared toward designers in that it is totally customizable.
  2. It is beautiful.

They have two collections, Vogue and Vintage.

From the Vogue Collection these are my favorites:chest kind

We are headed to market in Atlanta today. The list is loooong and excitement is great as we prepare to place orders to finally “dress” the “big house on the hill at the end of the long drive” as so many of you have called it.

My Favorite Things: Sketches



One of the things I wish I was more proficient at is sketches. Hand-rendered sketches are among my favorite things! We have some local firms that excel.

sketches

These by Christopher Architects are so perfect to me because the loose strokes of the pencil help you to experience the space in a very friendly way. The hand rendering is warm and inviting and not too serious.

SOUTHERN HOME SELECTED FOR ANNUAL HOTTEST LAUNCHES OF THE YEAR LIST

 

Hoffman Media Executives Accept Prestigious Honor at min Awards

 

Birmingham, AL, December 8, 2015 – Hoffman Media has launched Southern Home, a new wide-format shelter publication dedicated to high-style southern décor. Southern Home was selected by min (Media Industry Newsletter) for their annual list of “Hottest Launches”. On December 3, min hosted the annual Most Intriguing People + Hottest Launches awards breakfast in New York, NY.  President and Chief Creative Officer Brian Hart Hoffman and President and Chief Operating Officer Eric Hoffman were on hand to accept the award from guest presenter, Dr. Samir “Mr. Magazine” Husni.

 

Southern Home brings some of the area’s most inviting and interesting homes, as well as the talented architects, designers, and homeowners behind them. Accents are thick in this part of the country, translating into accessible styles indicative of the surrounds, such as Lowcountry charm, Texas chic, and Carolina comfort.  So many hands go into each facet of a design, and Southern Home celebrates those who lend theirs to the process—from blueprints and build-outs to furnishings and floral arrangements. Look for Southern Home magazine on newsstands nationwide quarterly.

 

We were honored to be featured twice in this beautiful publication. Click on the link to read about our photo shoot and subsequent features. Rumor has it that the Cindy Barganier team might be in 5 more publications in 2016. We will keep you posted as things progress.

Southern Home Wins
