Last week Jill had the pleasure of visiting the north Georgia countryside, full of fall color, to tour the This Old House The Cottage at Cloudland Station in Chickamauga, Georgia. Not only is it set in a picturesque valley, this 1,998 square foot house packs a punch with refined colors, textures and design, thanks to the talented designer, and good friend, Yvonne McFadden.
Here are some highlights and notes: Partial to these peacock blue cabinets combined with the Montclair Danby marble countertop.
Versatile seating in the family room, and that smart mahogany coffee table by Holland and Company with clever pull outs…must remember that…
Two inch thick stairs from homegrown wood on the property – conservation and recycling at its best!
Shot in the heart by this stunner! Black penny tile on the walls and white penny tile in the bath, combined with the black tile border, black pearl marble countertop, blue cabinet color and then the arrow motif stencil by Cutting Edge Stencils. Top it all off with a custom mirror, framed by the venerable Brooks & Black Fine Framing.
Outdoor living plays a huge part in this cozy cottage with a 10-foot-deep porch that accesses the family and dining rooms. Yvonne and her team continued the relaxed feeling outside with the colors, textures and wrapped the spaces together with the Franklin Iron Works Hickory Point outdoor light collection by Lamps Plus.
Make plans to visit this dreamy development this fall – pack a picnic to enjoy on the grounds, perhaps around the communal firepit, or the pool or the adult size tree house! Thank you to Vicki Bolick (The Ace of Space) for joining me on this mountain adventure. Happy Fall y’all!
