Tomorrow (01/20/12) we pick up the keys to the vacation cabin. It will be great to spend some time in the home without a realtor,inspector,appraiser or contractor in the way. Our goal is to complete all the necessary repairs in the next 3 months to make the property comfortable. In the meantime, I wanted to share one of the many inspiring spaces that capture the look and style I hope to bring to our cabin.
This home designed by Suzanne Kasler was the image that immediately came to me when I first saw our cabin. It was featured in Architectural Digest's June 2009 issue. This property is located in the Great Smoky Mountains of Tennessee.
Like this design, I envisioned classic European accent furniture and accessories such as a gilded baroque and/or Federal style convex mirrors anchored by neoclassical sconces with an antique brass finish.
Empire style chairs anchored by the yellow gold upholstered chairs on the end compliments the space perfectly! Suzanne did such an amazing job bringing everything together in this home.
She quickly became one of my favorite designers. You can visit her website to see more of her terrific work here. Please come back and visit as I share other inspiring rustic and elegant spaces.
