As a young artist, Lynn was working at a gallery in Atlanta where the framer only showed up to work sporadically. “I started going in and cutting the frames myself,” she says. Soon, Lynn’s deft hands and expertise led her to assume leadership of her own gallery, Accent Framing & Gallery, where her painter’s eye matches matting and metal or wood edging with paintings, photographs, and miscellaneous keepsakes. “What inspires me is how someone can bring in something ordinary and we can make it look so much better,” she says, though she’s also up for tackling the out-of-the ordinary: she once framed a deer’s tail, and she has helped conserve a 200-year-old silk painting as well as a sheepskin Latin document dating back to the 1300s. With a combined three decades of experience, Lynn and her assistant are ready to transform nearly anything into an ensemble fit for the guest room all homeowners keep ready in case the Queen of England drops by.
During her years in edging others’ artwork, Lynn hasn’t neglected her own. Her brush gives life to marshes and feathered wings, and she shares her wisdom with students during art classes on painting with oils and acrylics. The gallery also has plans to help photographers learn to manipulate their camera’s shutter speed, light settings, and advanced pancake-making features.
Family-owned-and-operated London Hair has kept tresses ahead of the times for each of its more than 50 years in business. The salon’s six scissor slingers have been trained in both cutting and color techniques and happily overhaul dated head threads on the run from the fashion police or relentless wigmongers. Ladies can treat cranial insulation to a chic new ‘do ($30–$96 depending on stylist) or send in a hairy he-beast for a men's trim ($25–$57 depending on stylist). Technicolor specially selected strands with highlights ($30+), or get dye distributed equally for an all-over color ($30–$67 depending on stylist) to keep follicles from quitting and joining the circus as bearded-lady beards.
Nadeau characterizes its furniture as "with a soul" because it's true artisan work: handcrafted from wood rather than mass-produced from gasket pylons. Showcase fine china and live gerbils in a double-domed glass-door cabinet ($284), or in a hefty, finely trimmed kitchen hutch ($410). Or, display a new moving picture box on a delicately polished TV stand/buffet ($500). Small console tables ($160) and storage chests ($224) come in a myriad of stains and colors, and many pieces are one-of-a-kind. Nadeau's ever-changing inventory includes a variety of sturdy dining room tables ($435–$548) and chairs ($80 each). Prices and selection may vary due to rotating inventory, but pieces are always fully assembled and ready to welcome any tuckered torso or mound of toothbrushes.
