Home Tour: Glamorous and Feminine Apartment

29 Oct

Today I have a beautiful apartment tour for you. This apartment is not a full time residence, it is a getaway space for a busy mother of four whose main home is down the street. Isn’t that a great idea?!? Designers Hannon Kirk Doody and Doug Davis transformed this Birmingham, Alabama apartment into an ultra feminine, glamorous space. Take a look!
