Here is part 2 of Inspiring Homes and Facades from our Instagram Account, Glimpses of the South. We continue with architecture, homes and beautiful facades that captured our attention in 2018! Images included are from Charleston, Vickery, Downtown Woodstock, Historic Marietta, Madison Georgia, and the fabulous Swan House in Atlanta!
Charleston, South Carolina is packed full of inspiring homes. Homes in Charleston seem to have that special magic with their colorful histories and enchanting facades. The blue-green exterior coupled with the gas lantern, Charleston Green shutters, iron gate, and lush window boxes make us swoon!
This bright pink crepe myrtle provides the perfect frame for this Charleston home. Like many Charleston homes, hinged shutters were installed protect windows during severe storms
Major curb appeal here! The gingerbread trim, white picket fence, and red door contrasting with the blue siding make decorating simple for the 4th of July, Memorial and Veteran's Day!

The front porch of Oakton shows the ornate detail of the columns and trim. Numerous photos of Historic Marietta Homes can be found in Douglas' Frey's book Marietta - The Gem City of Georgia. It took 10 years of research to create this beautiful coffee table book and the detailed information Douglas has gathered is fascinating and informative.
Vickery, Cumming GA
The perfect pop of red on this front door on this cottage style home in Vickery.
Also located in Vickery, this simple facade has a European flair with its' white painted brick, black mullion windows, and rich wooden front door.
Wowing us with her massive front porch is The James T. Anderson House (c. 1900) on Whitlock Avenue. This Electic Revival home features classic architectural elements such as Ionic columns, dental molding, arched windows and doors, and wrap around front porch.
Madison Georgia Homes Oh my goodness! That white picket fence, gingerbread trim and screened front door - the perfect spot for some front porch sitting!
Charleston Homes at Christmas
This Cobblestone street in Charleston showcases some of the loveliest homes in the city. This Church Street beauty is delightful any time of the year, but especially at Christmas with its' simple and classic holiday decor.
Everything was glowing after this summertime sun shower in Historic Marietta.
The Swan House - Atlanta, Georgia
Built in 1928 by Emily and Edward Inman and designed by architect Philip Trammell Shutze, The Swan House is an Atlanta treasure. Does the facade look familiar? If you are a fan of The Hunger Games, you'll will know why! Want a tour? Tickets can be purchased through the Atlanta History Center.
Interior of the Swan House
No informal dinners here! The gilded mirrors, ornate fireplace, and Chinoiserie wallpaper of the Swan House dining room ooze luxury.
