Last week, Angela from the Painted House, Claire from High Gloss Blue and I took a road trip up to Cashiers which is a cute little town about 3 hours from Atlanta in the mountains of North Carolina. On our agenda was a tour of the 2010 Cashiers Designer Showhouse, a little antiquing and a lot of blog talk. It was as fun as it sounds!
First things first, we had to stop and eat. (We have our priorities straight.)Â We stopped in at the Orchard in Cashiers. How cute is this place?
Loved this porch! To me, there’s nothing more Southern or charming. Oh, and do you see what a perfectly beautiful day it was, too? It’s cooler in the mountains. I may have to move up there.
After lunch, off to the showhouse we went:
where we were greeted by these cuties:
then as soon as we walked in the front door, we were met with the greatest view. We couldn’t stop oohing and aahing.
Here’s a better look:
I went mad for all the copper piping:
This bedroom was one of my favorite spaces because of the color palette and all the lovely details:
This was a seating area on the upstairs landing and those “upholstered” walls were just nailheads tacked directly into the wall! Is that clever or what?
My favorite room in the whole house was probably the little girl’s room which really says something because having no kids, I’m usually not that into kids’ rooms. But this one was so fun, I loved every inch of it.
Remember Mr. Bubble?
Here are some of my favorite details from the rest of the house:
I want these:
and this was my favorite vignette:
I hope you enjoyed the virtual tour. For more photos and information about the designers featured, check out Angela’s post.
I’m already looking forward to next year’s showhouse!
