Georgia Bates grew up in Ruidoso, New Mexico, watching her parents design and build Santa Fe style homes. She traveled to Mexico with them as they searched for old doors, stonework, antique furniture and religious folk art. Surrounded by the beauty of colonial antiques, she fell in love with the style at an early age.
Bates has lived in Los Angeles, New York, and London. After living in Europe for eight years, she returned to the United States to look for a larger city offering growth and opportunity. She settled in Phoenix. Wanting to apply the talents and love of art and antiques taught by her father, Bates opened a gallery and established Bates Architectural Collection in downtown Scottsdale. The gallery was nationally recognized as one of the premier sources of Spanish colonial antiques and style. In addition to designing interiors and sourcing architectural elements, Bates consulted and guided buying trips in Mexico for select clients.
During the gallery years, Bates’ clientele came to rely on her for interior space planning and design. In realizing this passion, Bates Interiors was born. Bates bought her studio property, a 1927 neighborhood grocery in the historic Coronado district, in 2006. She also purchased an adjoining 1920s bungalow. Both structures were decrepit, and her friends and family thought she had finally gone mad. But a 2 year project yielded results that no one could argue. And though Bates has since sold the compound, her finished work, a vision only she could create, became a showplace for modern living, incorporating a separate and elaborate design studio with one of the most stunning homes ever to be sold in downtown Phoenix. See Photos of her finished property here.
Now, Georgia has turned her attention to Real Estate. Specializing in the areas that she's played in, worked in and loved for years, the Arcadia Neighborhood and Paradise Valley. Bates joins the Historic Phoenix Team, bringing with her a unique perspective for the remodeling process and an impeccable attention to detail that her clients will undoubtedly be impressed by.
