The Dawson-Ham family is "classic taste, modern life" to the core
With two adorable preschool children and a venerable Italianate home in Atlanta, the Dawson-Ham family is "classic taste, modern life" to the core. Their home teams richly detailed original architecture with idiosyncratic decorating represented by the oddball antique accessory, the slightly off-kilter arrangement, and fresh, fresh art. Here, Luke, left, 3, and Charlie, 5, enjoy the garden with their parents, Hillary Dawson and John Ham.
