Publisher Notes: May 2019

 

As the publisher of Augusta Magazine, I am afforded the opportunity to tour and feature some of the area’s most interesting homes. It’s one of the best parts of my job – to take a peak inside someone’s home is truly an honor.

When choosing a home to feature, I not only look at the exterior and interior of the home, but the homeowner/family. Do they have an interesting story? What’s their style? Why did they choose this house? Many factors go into selecting a home for the magazine.

For this issue, I think we hit the jackpot!

When looking for a house for our May issue, I reached out to a friend who found a unique home that also satisfied a curiosity. The Mediterranean-style home located behind the stucco wall off Cumming Road has always fascinated me. I have often wondered about that home and the family that lived there.

Lee West purchased the home about two years ago for herself and her boys. Their home is the perfect reflection of a well-lived life in happy home. From the moment Lee opened the door and I crossed the threshold, I could see why she loves this house and knew it was the place she could raise her boys. Not only was I inspired by her style and love for all things vintage, but her passion to create a happy environment for her children.

I thoroughly enjoyed getting to meet Lee and touring her home. I left feeling confident to make bolder choices in my own home. I hope it gives you some inspiration as well!
