Laurel Magazine – “Home of Distinction”

Laurel Magazine is monthly shelter magazine focusing on life in Highlands and Cashiers, North Carolina and the surrounding community.  They do lots of interesting stories about local happenings, new restaurants, where to stay, what to see and do, and also feature some beautiful homes in the area.  For the September issue, they selected a home I designed in the Old Highland Park neighborhood in Highlands, for a couple whose main home is in Knoxville, for their “Home of Distinction” feature.

A little about the house……my clients love the mountains, and wanted a cozy retreat there.  We worked with a favorite color scheme of hers….blues and oranges.  The result is a beautiful interior that feels fresh.  This is an unexpected color scheme in an area where most people choose browns, greens, and neutrals.  Most of the rugs in the house were custom braided rugs I designed.  Antiques are a favorite source of inspiration for my client, so we used old pieces wherever we could.  The colors are happy, the upholstery is comfortable, and the space is relaxing.  I love it, and hope you enjoy.  More photos of this project are located in the portfolio section of my website under the heading “Old Highland Park.”
