It’s been a crazy month with the holidays and moving into a new home in Atlanta. Good crazy but crazy so the blog has unfortunately been on the back burner. As I’m living deeper in the heart of the city, I’ll have so much to share with you as I’m able to walk to restaurants, shops, parks and museums. The proximity of everything Atlanta has to offer is closer than it was before even though I only moved four miles it feels like I’m discovering a new city.
One discovering I made before the holidays is a new store in Brookhaven called Marguerite’s on Dresden. The mother-daughter team has a love for home décor. Mom Cindy Lites-Richard has been a professional decorator for over 30 years and daughter Caroline Lites Thompson has followed in mom’s footsteps with her own love for home décor. The shop is a great combo of Cindy’s interior design expertise with Caroline’s youthful flair. The shop’s name pays tribute to other women in the family lineage: Cindy’s mom and Caroline’s grandmother Marguerite.
Marguerite’s on Dresden includes bedding by Haute, Legacy Linens, Monde Maison and Peacock Alley; bath and home items include Claus Soaps, books, art and accessories; tabletop items from Low Country Linens, Monte’s Dugget, Rebecca Wood Pottery and Vietri; gift items include candles, jewelry, baby gifts, PJs and robes as well as bags and accessories from Stephanie Johnson; plus furniture and more.
Marguerite’s on Dresden is located at 1430 Dresden Drive, Suite 200, Atlanta, Ga. 404.841.9171. They’re open Monday – Saturday 10:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m. and Sunday by appointment. www.margueritesondresden.com
