Does A Southern Drawl Belong In This Atlanta Home?

Recently-Updated944.jpg

Susan Ferrier | Featured on House of Valentina The South has a reputation to maintain.  A big one.  It's got it's chaaarmin' drawl, it's hospitality, it's sweet tea sippin' days on scorchin' hot days, and traditions so thick you could cut em', but Susan Ferrier isn't playing by the rules. How daaare her!  (Said with a Southern Accent, of course.)  Rather than bringing in heavy cherry woods and traditional florals, Susan filled her home with dark and sensual colors so scandalous that even Scarlett O'hara would blush!  (I declaaare!)

With a focus on her collected objects, a balance of light and dark, and an underlying feeling of warmth and elegance, this home might just convince you to move to Atlanta... at least that is how I feel!
