Atlanta is the couple’s sanctuary; as Catie said, “We’ll always keep Atlanta as our forever home.”

Jeff added, “There’s everything I want to do in Atlanta: Family, church, sports, and golf.”

As Jeff wished, the house was maneuvered with unpretentious furnishings for comfortable sofas and chairs.

It also includes a formal living room with a grand piano as a focal point—a reference to a delicate settee, fine art, and an Oriental rug.

Catie describes the porch as the favorite place to visit in their house, with Atlanta weather so lovely that they can always keep the doors open.
