With a proliferation of McMansions and generic white boxes cluttering the housing landscape, it is growing increasingly difficult to find architects who embrace fine classical architecture. And the same can be said for interior design. Atlanta-based designer Mallory Mathison Glenn has quickly become one of my favorites due to her fresh approach to classic style (she happens to hold a post graduate certificate in Antiques and Interiors Connoisseurship from Parsons School of Design). I follow Mallory on Instagram and have been watching the progress of today’s featured home with eager anticipation… and finally it was published last week!
Joe and Fran Brannen wanted to build a home in South Georgia that could serve as a backdrop for entertaining and ultimately be passed down through generations. They turned to architect Brandon Ingram, who introduced them to landscape architect Carson McElheney and interior designer Mallory Mathison Glenn in the project’s initial stages. “They wanted a young team in place that could give them a classically rooted house that still felt very fresh,” said Ingram. “All three of us were under 35 at the time, and the Brannens really allowed us to prove ourselves by giving us full creative rein,” adds Glenn. Four and a half years after Ingram’s first meeting with the Brannens, the main house was ready to host family and friends.
