The Atlantan // Material Girl

Take a look at who is gracing the pages of The Atlantan this month! We were gobsmacked (to quote Tami in all her southern charm) when they approached Tami about being featured in the Best of the City issue - what a tremendous honor. With opportunity knocking, we set out to make it totally killer, including tapping into our dear and talented friends at Katharine Kidd and Bradley USA.

Katharine Kidd is an LA and Atlanta based fashion designer who is deservedly basking in her growing reputation as one of the hottest clothing designers around and who is, hands down, a genius at blending feminine details with edge and luscious materials. She is our go-to for unique and showstopping fashion - but don't take our word for it, check out the celebrities donning her frocks. Katharine was kind enough to outfit Ms. Ramsay head to toe for the shoot - and let me tell you, finding digs in her Atlanta store was as easy as pie. Here's Tami making her selections and trying stuff on. And can we please talk about that light fixture while we're at it?

This dress below was my personal favorite - I mean, what's not to love about dripping gold embroidery? However, the outfit Tami ended up wearing included a beloved, and therefore, mainstay fits-like-a-glove Charlotte Printed Blouse that Katherine brings back every season and mixes it up with new colors and patterns, along with Kimberly Pant, a sexy black slack with a revealing peek-a-boo leg slit.

Michelle Bradley, the sassy and wickedly talented founder and creative genius behind Bradley, ever so graciously welcomed The Atlantan to shoot Tami in her drop dead gorgeous showroom at ADAC.

I swear, we both want like one of everything in her showroom and appreciate the fully customizable nature of her product lines. Tami is mad for the large scale art featuring works by paper-cut-project, which you can get a glimpse of in the shot of her above.  I personally have my eye on this concrete side table in a major way... but I digress.

Anyway, besides all the fun leading up to and on the day of the photo shoot, we just adored being able to share Tami's local Atlanta favorites including Hugh Acheson's Empire State South restaurant, Susan Hable Smith's Hable Construction textiles for Hickory Chair, Bungalow Classic, Sally King Benedict's art, Gogo Ferguson's jewelry and Clay McLaurin's fabrics. Many of these talented folks we've already written about extensively on our blog so be sure to check out these links for deep dive looks at Susan Hable Smith, Sally King Benedict, Clay McLaurin and paper-cut-project. We've always loved sharing our favorite sources... it's our firm belief that sharing the news about others doing great things in the design world is the best way to help get them recognized and to spread the design love. In fact, if you haven't already, check out our Little Black Book for a complete list of the companies we routinely turn to over and over again in our own design practice.


A most sincere thanks to The Atlantan and Kate Abney for a piece that we are exceptionally proud to be a part of.

PS - and just because I'm so proud of my girl, I have to mention that Tami was also featured on the Contents page in addition to the piece on her on p. 48. Eeek!
