As the new year begins, many of us make lists of things we would like to accomplish during the next 12 months, whether it’s embarking on a new exercise routine, making a commitment to eating well, or striving for a certain goal in the workplace. Or maybe this past year was just a little too hectic, so your resolution is to make relaxing and spending time with family and friends a priority. What better place to do that than in your own home? In this “Before and After” issue, we offer plenty of inspiration to help you discover the hidden potential in your home and make it a welcoming haven. In Atlanta, William Baker and Suzanne Kasler bring a deteriorating historic house back to its former life as a stunning and stately Colonial.
