This past week, I had the special privilege of getting to attend the Cashiers Designer Showhouse and experience that beautiful home in person again. It’s been years since I’ve been (this is their 25th year doing it) and it’s always fun to see. This particular showhouse is usually designed more traditionally (I’d say) than many other showhouses I attend and I think this one is really pretty. It’s bold with color and pattern, yet has a sophisticated air of traditional style with of course modern elements added as well. This classic NC mountain retreat in Cashiers, NC is a treat for the eyes.
I was invited by Cambria countertops to go along with them in a bus ride up and back for the day and I went with a friend of mine, Betsy, so it was a lot of fun. Full day, but lots to see.
The home is located in Fieldstone, the newest neighborhood of the prestigious High Hampton. Featuring 4 bedrooms, 4 1/2 baths, it has work-play areas and is the perfect retreat for modern families. The house has been open since August 26 and ends this weekend, September 4th (today), so not a really long run. I hope you enjoy my pics. I took a lot, so this tour will be in 2 parts. I’ll share the main floor this weekend and the 2nd level next weekend.
I’ll be sharing the designer names for each space along the way.
Front Porch, Foyer, Powder Room: Douglas Hilton, DWH Interiors
Great Room: Holly Laughridge, Old Edwards Inn
It was hard to get pics without people in them, but I managed for the most part.
Dining Room & Kitchen: Susan Vernon, Tribus Interior Design
The kitchen cabinets were a dark cream color, very pretty.
Cambria did the countertops and they are Britannica Gold in a mat finish.
Carolina Room (Screened Porch): Joan Anderson, Joan Anderson Interiors
I love love love the screened porch. Very homey and cozy, with a mix of new and vintage pieces.
Utility Room & Pantry: Lisa Wester, Lisa Wester Interiors
Laundry Room: Lisa Wester
Office: Lynn Monday, Lynn Monday Home
Back Patio: Louise Johnson, Louise Johnson Interior Design
Primary Bedroom: Blackberry Farm Design
Primary Bath & Closets: Stephanie Jarvis, Stephanie Jarvis Inc.
Loved the botanical wallpaper in here.
That’s it for the main floor, so stay tuned next week for the 2nd part of this tour. The upstairs is beautiful too! I know sometimes these home tours are not going to please everyone’s taste, but the designers work really hard on these spaces, so please keep that in mind with comments. I loved all the color, beautiful fabrics, and traditional design of the house overall.
Don’t miss Part 2 of the showhouse, the upstairs!
