This beautiful Keith Summerour designed Atlanta house is situated on 4 acres and was built in 2000. It was featured in House Beautiful in June 2012 and was renovated 3 years ago by Chad Mattison, the interiors are by Beth Webb. Jane Douglas and I were lucky to see the house in person a year ago. We had lunch and a lovely visit with the delightful owners, who took us on a tour of the house and told us about many of the pieces of furniture and art in the house. The interior design was a real collaboration between the owners and Beth Webb.
I received my copy of the Beacham Series in the mail over the weekend and noticed that the house is now for sale. The photos from the sale pictures are very different from those in House Beautiful and I thought it would be fun to see the spaces through the lenses of the two cameras. I also found photos of the house shot by photographer Emily Followill and have included some of those as well.
Photos for shelter magazines are styled differently than photos for houses for sale - they are capturing different qualities of the house. For a shelter magazine the photographer is capturing the essence and feel of the house and its inherent beauty. When a house is photographed for listing purposes, the idea is to get a sense of the size and proportions of the rooms and to show off the unique features of the house that would make you want to own it.
I love that in the above three photos, each photographer used a different chair at the end of the table. Three different eyes looking at the same space, three different visions.
