  • Description or summary of the book: This Southern gentleman's beloved property in bucolic Americus, Georgia, has absorbed him for over six decades. It consists of four intimate dwellings that exemplify various southern architectural traditions - from a mid-nineteenth-century Gothic to a Palladian-inspired cottage - charming gardens, and out buildings. Gatewood shares his personal reflections on how he has created a unique world for himself tailored to his refined sensibility. Captured in thoughtful photographs, his seductive spaces illustrate a relaxed Arcadian style. Gatewood describes the hunt for discovering singular antique and vintage pieces with a poetic patina. He is an expert on custom paint finishes and composing subtle colour palettes, and has an innate talent for incorporating arresting architectural elements. With flair, he has collected art, antique furnishings, and decorative objects, which are artfully displayed in the beautifully appointed dwellings. Gatewood respects the importance of old world craftsmanship and architectural restoration, and takes delight in designing picturesque grounds and plantings, as well as creating comfy areas for his beloved dogs and peacocks.His close friend, Bunny Williams, has contributed a section about the lessons she has learned from this master of discernment.
