Inside Atlanta: Made Again’s Margeau Bull

Made Again founder Margeau Bull shares her favorite spots in Atlanta

Inside Atlanta: Margeau Bull

We're back with our series Inside Atlanta—each week, we sit down with influential locals to talk about what Atlanta means to them. Today we’re chatting with Made Again founder and owner Margeau Bull. Previously a Los Angeles resident, Bull was a special effects makeup artist before jumping into the art gallery and boutique business. Now, Bull spends her days curating more than 100 Atlanta artists and planning large community events and art exhibitions for her Inman Park-based boutique. In its third year, her boutique features sustainably produced handmade goods and home décor, and even offers interior design services.

If you want your home to look stylish without increasing your carbon footprint, Made Again is the place to go.

Today we get a tour of The Big Peach lead by Bull herself.

I live in… Decatur with my husband, but I chose this neighborhood because it was everything opposite of Los Angeles. I have a house with a garage, a yard, a washer and dryer [giggles], which is more than most can say for other large cities. It’s a great neighborhood with a close-knit community tucked away in lush trees and a creek running through, but that speaks for most of Atlanta. I always refer to it as the "Big City in a Garden” with its secret nature side.”

I Wish People Knew…It’s actually a great time to live in Atlanta as a whole because it is growing so fast—you feel like you have an active role in shaping the city.”

You Can Find Me… “at Made Again most of the time, or Java Monkey in Decatur behind a coffee cup and a laptop.”

It’s Dinner Time, I’m headed to… Nam Phuong on Buford Highway for a great spread of Vietnamese, Il Localino for Italian, because it’s always a party there and Jang Su Jang is worth the drive for the best Korean. For breakfast, Stone Soup Kitchen and Apres Diem for brunch.”

Clock strikes 5 o’clock, I’m drinking… “Malbec or anything from the Cote Du Rhone region. I usually head to Fritti after a day of work or grab my second runner-up, an old fashioned, from One Eared Stag. When my day brings me a little north to Buckhead, I will grab either drink and people watch at Bistro Niko.”

If I Had to Stay in a Hotel, I’d check into… “The Artmore Hotel in Midtown because of its old-world architecture and great courtyard.”

Atlanta’s Best Kept Secret Is… “Improv at Village Theater on Saturday nights. Also, Gaja in East Atlanta for a cool, New York bar-vibe and the quaint, lush Springvale Park in Inman Park.”

When I’m Playing Tourist, I go to… Sope Creek Trail and Paper Mill Ruins in Marietta, paddle the Chattahoochee River and, of course, The Clermont Lounge.”

I Get My Sweat On… “At the trails of the North Georgia mountains, preferably Panther Creek, or taking a spin class at Torq Cycle.”

I Love Spending My Money At... Westside Market for everything furniture, accessories, and vintage finds, Brick + Mortar in Westside Provisions District or Scott Antique Markets once a month.”
