My Favorite Place on the Modern Atlanta '13 Tour

All those moderns are rattling around in my head, know what I mean? I saw 10 of the 13 on the Modern Atlanta tour. I was docent at two them for 3 hours each.

I was fortunate to be able to do it. It's hard to see moderns except in magazines. There aren't many so they sell quickly, often before there's an open house. And you really, really need to see them in person.

Anyway, the 10 are rattling around in my head.

There was this one room in the Dyson house. There was a place in this room where I wanted to stay.

So I went back the next day to make sure. Yeah, it's where everyone would want to do everything all the time.

My place was that corner between range and sink, just give me a stool.

I don't think it has anything to do with style. The shape, the proportion, the sheltering roof, the light, I'd love it empty.


  1. I got to 12 of the 13 (the Dyson was the final one on my list—almost didn't go, glad I did!). I'd have to agree that the place between the sink and range was about as good as it gets! Loved a lot of the homes—still digesting some (the house in Roswell which did not allow photographs—how to explain the design to someone??). A good year—not the best ever—but a diverse group of homes (from professionally done to DIY). Looking forward to next year. Thank you for offering your time to be a docent.

  2. Now I really, really wish I'd gone. Had wanted to, just got busy with other stuff. Top of my list next year! Thanks for sharing, Terry.

  3. oh darn I would have stayed in 'Georgia if had know about this tour, love the link with all the photos.
