Greg told me that Pastelcote was inspired by a brick treatment in Australia that is very similar to mortarwash.
I think the result is spectacular, and the slate roof is the perfect touch for this timeless house.
I had the privilege of a private tour of this house by Rodolfo himself (at the tail end of construction), and it is as beautiful on the inside as it is on the outside.
So is this charming new house, also designed by Stan Dixon.
I love this house; I drive on this street at least once a week just to see it.
This house still speaks to me…the windows, chimneys, palladian windows – all elements that I find to be quite beautiful. Working on a home from scratch, somehow I knew that I wanted to go more French in style.
Perhaps more accurately, a home that combines some aspects of the Georgian that I love, but which is inspired by French architecture but does not slavishly emulate it.
I mean, give me some "eye of the beholder" jokes, you know?
I love the symmetry and order of a classic Georgian house.
This beautiful new Georgian home in the Brookhaven area of Atlanta, also designed by Stan Dixon, is painted brick.
This is very common in Atlanta homes, old or new – Atlanta seems to like its painted brick homes!
It is stucco, which is very commonly found on French style houses in Europe (and America). It is my favorite material for the exterior of a house, and it is definitely a favorite in Atlanta.
