Ingram says he was influ- enced at an early age by the work of South Georgia’s native architec- tural masters, including Frank McCall Jr., of Moultrie, and Ed- ward Vason Jones, of Albany. “Their ability to create architecture that is unique and of its time, while also being respectful of the traditional architecture of the past, has become a benchmark and goal of every home I design,” he has said. “For me, scale and pro- portion are more than just catch phrases; charm and character are never mere happenstance.” Ingram is the 2016 winner of the prestigious Philip Trammel Shutze Award from the Institute of Classical Ar- chitecture and Art and is an active member of The Institute of Clas- sical Art and Architecture, The American Society of Architectural Illustrators and The Atlanta His- torical Society. Mallory Mathison Mallory Mathison Glenn’s ca- reer path was inspired by her love of dollhouses and childhood trips with her mother to estate sales on weekends. Today the owner of Mallory Mathison Fine Interior Design, she approaches today’s design opportunities as a way to combine all that the past and future offer to provide personally expressive interiors, tai- lored to each client. With a BS in Interior Design and Art History from the University of Alabama and a post-graduate certificate in Antiques and Interiors Connoisseurship from Parsons School of Design in New York, Mathi- son has a natural vision for creating statement de- sign projects for residential and commercial clients. Her Atlanta-based firm has developed a client base across the South and Northeast. Mathison aims to create interiors that showcase not only the best designs, but also her clients’ per- sonal histories and lifestyles. Her process, she says, varies from project to project. “Many homes we work on are newly built or renovations, so we begin with the architecture, land, and a few key pieces, and build from there. Sometimes it’s an inherited rug or a piece of art they they’ve won at an auction, but mostly the process is driven by putting the pieces together that will ele- vate their lives at home.” Her work has been featured in Southern Living and Domino magazine. She also had the honor of designing a room in the 2017 Atlanta Homes & Lifestyles Holi- day Designer Showhouse. “The past is a valuable and proven teacher of classic and iconic design,” she has said. “The future can be viewed as an open canvas, waiting for the next im- pactful expression of design that will become history.” Personal passions for inter- national travel, entertaining, dec- orative art and history of design provide inspiration and influence on Mathison’s aesthetic and life- style.
