20 Ways to be Inspired

If you missed the 2011 Birmingham home and garden inspiration home, there’s still plenty of great ideas to be found on the following pages. Need more? It’s not too late to drive by or call a realtor and see it for yourself. Located at the Cove at Overton, a new community that incorporates both Mountain Brook and Vestavia, the home is tucked away in a gated community at the end of Poe Drive. Developed by Charles Kessler, his vision for a place where quality of life and maintenance free living in a charming, Old World setting is being fulfilled by architect Chris Reebals. “The beauty of this architecture has stood the test of time, ” says Chris. “Enduring classics transcend generational trends.” Interior designers Paige Schnell and Doug Davis of Tracery Interiors culled products and services from local businesses for the Inspiration Home proving that Birmingham is a one-stop shop for sophisticated design. “We don’t do anything in a set or suite, ” says Paige. “Things don’t always have to match. That’s why we look to a variety of shops for putting together personal looks.” Check out a few of our favorite ideas in the following slideshow.
