The Cathedral Antiques Show Tour of Homes is February 2, 2014 from 11am - 4:30pm
. You won't want to miss this fabulous tour with seven - yes seven
- lovely residences for you to see. Several of Atlanta's premier architects and designers are featured on this tour as well as an award winning Palm Beach architect. This year, as I did last year, I was honored to write about the houses on the tour and Emily Followill took the gorgeous photographs.
Crossroads Community Ministry is the beneficiary for the CAS this year. Here is a description of Crossroads:
"Crossroads is a primary first stop for homeless individuals and families in metro Atlanta. Crossroads is focused on ending homelessness through a range of structured services designed to empower people who are homeless to progress on the road toward economic and personal self-sufficiency. In 2012 alone, Crossroads served 3,900 people. The Cathedral Antiques Show is proud to support this extraordinary organization with the net proceeds of the 2014 Show."

French perfection in Buckhead! This enchanting stucco house with a mansard
slate roof was built in 2000 and was designed by the Atlanta architecture firm
Pak-Heydt and Associates. Architect
Charles Heydt worked with clients Ginny and Craig Magher to create a French “hotel
particulier,” or grand townhouse.
No detail has been overlooked in the sublime
architecture and European concrete block construction. The curvilinear iron balconies outside the
second story windows intimate the beautiful iron rail of the interior staircase. The parquet and limestone floors evoke
Versailles, and the many French doors lead to beautiful gardens designed by
John Howard of Howard Design Studio.
The current owners finished two additional rooms in the
house and they are in keeping with the home’s Parisian style. The interior
design is faithful to its French inspiration; designers Ginny Magher and Judy
Jordan have created a beautiful Provencal setting with authentic French
boiserie paneled walls, luxurious toile fabrics, and exquisite antique French
furniture. All of these features create
a unique and charming residence which evokes French living at its best.

Palm Beach architecture is the inspiration for this
Mediterranean, Italianate style house in Buckhead. Architect Jeffery W. Smith has a deep
respect for Gilded Age pioneers Addison Mizner and Maurice Fatio, and Smith’s
designs seek to recreate the elegant design aesthetic they represented. The splendor of the Mediterranean
architectural style is on full display in this residence, which was finished in
2010. The lot was purchased by the
owner’s parents in 1951 and the original house was designed by Atlanta
architect Clem Ford.
In keeping with her
parents’ legacy, Ruth Dobbs Anthony and
her husband Tom built a house that would accommodate a large extended family
and also have a suite for the family matriarch, Ruth’s mother Ruth Dobbs
McDonald. In 2008 the original
structure was torn down and the new project team paired builder John Berndsen with
landscape architect Alex Michaeledes of Land Plus. Ruth Dobbs Anthony is an accomplished
interior designer and the interiors reflect her love of beauty, detail and
color. Myriad architectural details
delight the visitor and are a beautiful canvas for Ruth’s stunning furnishings
and the couple’s art collection. The
house recently won a 2013 Obie award for single family residence.

These handsome stucco condominiums were built by William Rooker
in 1968. First developed as 16
apartments for Bill’s widowed mother and her friends as they downsized from
their Buckhead homes, they are now privately owned condominiums. Mack Tucker of Tucker and Howell was just launching
his career as an architect when Rooker asked him to begin the drawings. He had been the project manager at The Villa
condominiums designed by Philip Shutze, and that project seems to have
influenced his ideas for these classic residences. They were built by JB Hiers, a master builder
who had worked with many talented Atlanta architects. The structure is stucco over masonry. The landscape design is by Billy Monroe and
interestingly there were no flowering plants planted in the landscape, only
The Cathedral Antique Show is excited to present three of
these beautiful residences for the house tour.
Two of the residences are the homes of interior designers Linda Beth
Loughlin and Allyson Kirkpatrick and the third residence was decorated by
Atlanta native and New York designer Sarah Norwood. All three homes are like jewel boxes and
delight the eye. They each present a unique style and approach
to decorating an exquisite small space.

Atlanta architect Robert Norris of
Spitzmiller & Norris describes this charming shingled country house as “East
Coast vernacular.” Sited on a wooded Buckhead lot, the inviting home is filled
with beautiful architectural details. Inspired by a previous collaboration with
the owners in Charlotte, architects Spitzmiller and Norris designed the home
for the family when they moved to Atlanta in 1998.
The team gathered again to
renovate the entire house in 2012, adding new entertaining spaces off
the back. Interior designer Candy Lloyd filled the house with warm
colors and interesting textures which coordinate perfectly with the
architecture. The kitchen and light-filled family room are the heart of the
house where this bustling family and friends gather.
Duane Stone designed this American Georgian house for an
Atlanta couple who wanted a classic family house that entertains well. The design of the house, which is red brick
with a cedar shake roof, has roots in the houses of Virginia horse country as
well as Charleston.
The house was built in 2007 and features traditional interior architectural details which set the stage for the beautiful furniture and art that the couple collected themselves and inherited from both of their families. The house is filled with gorgeous color, fabrics, and wallpaper, and is a reflection of the owners’ good taste.
Of particular interest is the bright sunroom at the rear of the house with metal casement windows and a vaulted ceiling. The light filled room is filled with vibrant fabrics and overlooks a spacious, appealing backyard.
