A little over a week ago, we found ourselves stuck in the children’s hospital again (watch for Wednesday’s update) and we were about to cancel our grown-up getaway trip to Atlanta. We needed this trip. Aside from the aforementioned new health issues, I am fortunate to have been promoted at work to a team leader position on the most high-profile product BlueCross BlueShield of Tennessee carries. Alan has taken on a new side job that will one day be full-time in financial planning (investments, debt, retirement planning, insurance, wills and trusts, etc.). *Message me if you don’t have an active plan in any of these areas – you can’t protect your family enough!* And we’ve come to another big family decision that has taken a lot of mental energy. Vacation necessary. So our family and friends rallied and jumped in to help and got us the heck out of dodge.
Thanks to Priceline‘s fantastic Name Your Own Price (I am not getting paid to say that), we got to stay at the swank W Buckhead. Here’s the pictures. Disclaimer: We were too busy being on vacation and did not take pictures. These are from the Starwood website.
This was the mural inside the elevators.Our room. The in-house restaurant. Now for the fun part. I’m using this to start a new series called “Hotel to Home.” This is for anyone who’s ever walked into a hotel or restaurant and thought, how can I do this look in my house? I scour the interwebs for affordable pieces that mimic the look and feel of the hotel in question. So if the swank, sophisticated, dramatic, deer stag and Carrera marble look is speaking to you, here’s one way to take the W Buckhead home. // Hilden Collection 4-Light Aged Bronze Pendant // Patterned Cushion Cover // Linen Cushion Cover // Guest Towels // Tall Grid Tufted Headboard // Royal Velvet Matte Satin Square Coverlet Set // Days of Summer Knit Throw // Metal Candlestick // Gray Link Shade Ceramic Lamp // Threshold Fretwork Accent Table // Avington Upholstered Slipper Chair // Cotton Rug //
