Wow Us Wednesdays #288


Welcome to Wow! Hope your week is going well so far. After having guests last weekend and touring the Cashiers showhome and shopping and eating and shopping some more I think I'm pooped. Now it's time to get back to real life. We are enjoying lower humidity for a couple days and it's like a breath of fresh air. I'm so ready for the fall cool down. How about y'all?

While we dream of fall let's look at some features from last week and get this party started.

Peonies and Orange Blossoms takes us on a tour of a Street Of Dreams showhome decorated in French farmhouse style. I hope they bring the Street Of Dreams back to the Atlanta area.

Cashiers Showhouse Tour....part two


Yesterday I shared part one of the Cashiers showhouse that we toured on Saturday. Today we are continuing with the study and the living room which was my favorite plus more.

Right across from the master bedroom is the study. Just look at those original planked walls. The ceiling planks and beams were painted to make the room feel lighter. 

Cashiers Showhouse Tour....part one


Do you know what makes touring a show house more fun? Touring it with your bestie. We had the best time traveling the very windy mountain roads to Cashiers, NC to tour this year's show house called Burt Farm. It was such a picturesque setting and it was cool and sprinkling a bit when we arrived, but after touring the inside of the house the sun was making an appearance again. This home sits on 131 secluded acres and is for sale for a hefty price tag.

After parking a golf cart shuttled us to the house and this is one of the first things I saw.

Weekend Plans


It's Friday, yay! Since my internet has been in and out for days, and finally repaired late yesterday, I was unable to get my normal post together for today, but I thought I would give you a peek at what I'm going to be doing this weekend. I am so excited that my friend Shirley of Housepitality Designs and her husband are coming down and we are going to tour the Cashiers Designer Showhouse on Saturday. Plus we will be eating and shopping and just having a good time. We haven't seen each other in over a year!

Adding Color and Pattern in the Guest Room


Recently I shared the new look in the other guest room with the new accent wall and some new blue patterned curtains in place of the neutral ones. Seems more color and pattern is creeping back in. I had actually hung those curtains in this guest room first, but then moved them. I started to order the same ones for this room, but thought I would do something different.

This is a bold print and a bit different for me, but I like them.

Welcome to Wow! Hope your week is going well. It's still sweltering here, but I'm holding on to the hope that cooler temps are in the near future. They have to be, right?

Let's look at some features from last week.

OMG, this chair makeover by Vintage Refined had me at blue and white buffalo checks!
