The Inman Park Tour of Homes – See You There!
It’s that time of year again! The Inman Park Festival is only a few weeks away and we are thrilled to be part of The Tour of Homes for the fourth consecutive year. It’s an honor that we don’t take for granted. We are delighted that one of our projects will be featured amongst some of the most beautiful homes in the area.
THE FESTIVAL – APRIL 24th-26th
Inman Park is one of the city’s most attractive and historical neighbourhoods. The festival celebrates it’s beauty and promotes restoration in the area. The festival includes a popular street market, The Tour of Homes; which showcases the beautiful Victorian buildings in the area, a 5k run and of course a colorful street parade. There will be something for everyone.
The Tour of Homes is our chance to give something back to the Inman Park neighborhood. It’s a community which has always supported us and it is a place we consider home. We will be participating in the event in a number of ways: a Nandina Home & Design booth in the street market, a seminar with activities and giveaways in our home decor store in Inman Park and our featured property will be open to the public during The Tour of Homes.
Tour of Homes – Our Project
Our selected property, 926 Waverly Way, was designed by John Ishmael and it is home to mother and son Tia and Albert Landau. Tia came to us with the request to create an interesting yet livable space; somewhere where she could entertain but that was also functional. This is what the Nandina team specializes in; “real life, real style.” To work with Tia’s needs and the condo’s contemporary theme with some rustic elements, John created a modern, playful, eclectic space that brings together the best of old world charm, contemporary colors, modern comforts and a touch of Hollywood glamour.
The roman shades and draperies on display, as well as most of the pillows, were all made in our custom workroom, while the Norwalk chaise in Tia’s dressing room, along with most of the furnishings in Tia’s home, were sourced from our Atlanta store. The modern swivel chair by Lee Industries and the equestrian painting by Susan Easton Burns are both part of collections that are big sellers in our Atlanta location. This piece works exceptionally well in Tia’s living room.
You can see more of Susan’s spectacular work in our store.
Did you know?
Tia owns the popular Inman Park bar and restaurant, The Albert. She named her bar after her son. Her son was named after Albert Einstein, her father’s godfather. Yes, really! If you come along to the Tour of Homes you may even get a peak of a picture of the physicist himself, holding Tia’s father as a baby!
What’s on offer from Nandina:
During the festival we will be hosting a design seminar in our Atlanta store which will be open to the public. There will be snacks and refreshments offered and several promotions and giveaways. And if that’s not enough, we will also have a booth at the festival, manned by our Nandina Design staff. Please come to say hello!
Our lead designer on this project John, will be present in the home for the three days of the tour. He will be accompanied by his assistant Jennings Williams to meet, greet and answer any questions you may have. This is always a great opportunity to pick our brains. Why those colors? How did you choose the lighting? What tricks did you use to make that big table work in this small space? Come along and we will tell you.
Whether it’s just to appreciate the beauty of a well designed home or to get ideas for styling your own space, The Inman Park Tour of Homes is a great way to do both. The festival runs from 24th-26th April. Advance tickets for the tour are $15 ($20 on the day) and are available on the festival website or in our store. It’s a hugely popular event so get yours now to avoid disappointment.
Tour of Homes – Friday 12-4pm, Saturday & Sunday 12-6pm.
We look forward to seeing you there.

Explore our past three years in the Tour of Homes:
2014: We designed two on this Tour of Homes: an art-filled modern loft (conveniently right upstairs from the store), and a gorgeous town home right around the corner.
2013: Our lead designer, John Ishmael, designed the interior of 434 Sinclair Avenue: a contemporary Craftsman-style home with contrasting yet complementary touches of modern and industrial styles.
2012: Our first year on the Tour of Homes, we began to see what a wonderful opportunity the Tour is to support the community and open private residence to the public for a few wonderful days.
