South of MarketAfter a quick couple of hours inside of Market, and Dayka's second tutorial of day two, how-to's, I was privileged to a VIP tour of Atlanta's finest shopping venues. Our first stop was a marvelous little spot, South of Market. Located on Peachtree, (isn't everything! If you haven't been to Atlanta EVERYTHING is on some form of a Peachtree.)
South of MarketWhat I loved the most about this store is the sizes. It suited the AB HOME ideal and philosophy, GO BIG, OR GO HOME! The scale of all their furnishings and accessories were over the top, and well displayed. Large accessories are dramatic, and make a statement, and this store was just that, dramatic!
South of MarketIn true Atlanta style, most of the furnishings were upholstered in beautiful linens, adorned with nail heads, and finished off with small, but distinct details.
South of MarketThis photo above was by far my favorite. With all of AB HOME's favorites, simple and clean, large furnishings and accessories, no clutter and ORANGE (my favorite)!!
Armour and Co
After South of Market we headed over to another lovely store called Armour and company, located on N. Highland. Dayka and I had a lovely conversation with Jamie the owner, and I was surprised to find out that she isn't a designer. She wanted a retail store, and loved furniture, so it just seemed a good fit. Wow! Her stored is meticulously pulled together, and arranged like a pro!
Armour and Co
She had several wonderful pieces and a great mix of collected things. And again, in true Atlanta fashion, many pieces had linen, washed wood, and clean accessories. Jamey was a delight to talk to, so if you are in the Atlanta area, I highly recommend you stop by to say hello!

Dayka and I went a few more places and then decided to get a bite to eat at an awesome little place called PURE. Also on N. Highland Ave, this little Taqueria will quench your thirst, and indulge your appetite!
