Roswell Woman's Club's annual tour supports scholarships and educators

This month, finishing touches are being added to the fabulous homes on this year's Roswell Woman’s Club Spring Home & Garden Tour, set for April 22. The home tours are a community favorite and continue to be the mainstay of the group's fundraising efforts. Join them for a spring day in Historic Roswell to visit beautifully decorated homes and get ideas for sprucing up your own home.

In 2022, Roswell Woman’s Club distributed scholarships and educational grants benefiting students in our community. Scholarships were awarded to fourteen graduating high school seniors to help further their education. 34 Educator Grants were awarded to North Fulton teachers in 18 different schools. New in 2022, they awarded one non-traditional Education Grant to a deserving recipient. 

We joined homeowner Carrie Bonham for a sneak peek tour of their lovely home. Carrie works part-time as the receptionist at Plum Tree Salon on Canton Street and her husband is Vice President and Chief Merchandising Officer at Paradies Lagardère.

Carrie: We have lived in Roswell just over a year after spending 14 years in Acworth, then moving to a townhome in Avalon for two years. We are empty nesters and the one-level, four-bedroom home was an ideal match for us, with no “extra" rooms we didn’t need and no wasted space in the design. The house was near perfect and the only thing we did after moving in was to add wallpaper to a few rooms and outdoor lighting to showcase the home after dark.

We have two daughters who visit as often as they can, especially in the spring and summer, to take advantage of our fabulous outdoor space. Our oldest, Austin, is a buyer for Macy’s and lives in Manhattan. Our youngest, Kenzie, is in her senior year at Georgia Southern University.

Nearly all the art in the house is from artists located in the South. The two pieces in the dining area are from Andrea Costa. The space above the fireplace features work from mixed media artist Brandon Luther, while the kitchen showcases art from Johns Creek artist Ali Leja (above bar cart) and Miramar Beach artist Brendan Parker.

We absolutely love the feature wall in our master bedroom with the various textures provided by the heavy mortar application of the bricks and the Brazilian teak sliding doors. The artwork from Lisa Soucie brings the colors and elements all together.
