Drooling Designers at a Show House

What a treat to be invited by Angela who pens The Painted House to join her and several other designer/bloggers to head to the mountains of North Carolina. It would be a fabulous girlie weekend to visit the show house in Cashiers.
She was the most gracious hostess at her 'cottage' in a nearby town where we could giggle and eat yummy food and enjoy the beauty that God created.  The locals say ca-shers, can't you just hear the mountain folk? Her 'cottage' is another post as it is simply...extraordinary!

The gardens at the front entrance of the show house were beautiful and so lush.
Right inside the entry and to the left was this beautiful office designed by Charles Faudree.  
I am not a huge lucite fan but this desk was just stunning.  I could definitely handle it in my own office!

What I realized after looking at my collection of pictures is that I seemed to focus more on design elements instead of the entire room.  Interesting.

legs taken off of this settee and mounted on a board and tied to rafters for a porch swing...genius!

Painted floors.

Quilt made from clothing labels!
View from the lawn, house facing pond.  We got to eat lunch on these beautiful grounds.  Such a beautiful and inspiring day.
