A Beautiful House in Atlanta—Again!

lighitng and lanterns

CThis beautiful home in Atlanta was featured on the blog this past May under the title Paris Flea Market in Atlanta. The home belonged to the talented Helen Ballard Weeks—the founder of Ballard Designs. Joni Webb of Cote de Texas featured this home (and my blog 😉 in a recent post about the home and the uber-creative Helen. Joni  featured photos from the real estate listing, the Peachtree Battle Antiques estate sale listing and on-line articles about Helen and her home in Atlanta. Here are a few pictures of the fabulous sale.

Thank you Joni for featuring my blog in your very informative story about Helen, her beautiful home and her business. I can’t wait to see what the inventive and beautiful Helen does next!

    I just love that console table in the picture! Is that a one of a kind or do you think that can be purchased as a pair somewhere?

      Sheryl, Everything at the sale was one of a kind. Most of the items were the inspiration for Helen’s creations at Ballard Designs. Maybe she will have another sale one day—stay posted.
