Kathleen Rivers cottage

Good morning, chic readers! We hope your week is off to a terrific start! One of our favorite things about traveling now is discovering new designers that we absolutely love. When we were in Cashiers, NC a couple of weeks ago our friend and event planner extraordinaire Elizabeth Fletcher of I Do Events Atlanta introduced us to the work of Kathleen Rivers, whose stunning Cashiers home is pictured above.

Needless to say, it was love at first sight.

Mountain style is a genre all its own, a look that, when done right, can conjure not just an opinion about a room but a feeling about a place.

Walking into one of Rivers’ rooms is like being transported to a completely different place, and she creates the perfect rustic elegance to make her spaces feel chic and upscale yet homey.

From luxe and layered,

Every detail of Rivers’ rooms tells a story.

Combined with an enviable view, it’s a stunning combination! 

Chattooga Club Cashiers

One of our favorite stops in Cashiers was Rivers’ incredible Chattooga Club.

Chattooga Club wood entry

Of all the places we visited on our fun-filled adventure, we think it might have been our very favorite.

Kathleen Rivers lodge

This sitting room was so inviting and so cozy we wanted to stay all day! And the fireplace is perfect for taking the edge off of that mountain chill.

A handful of magnificently appointed guest rooms are available for the usage of club members and their guests, and we are hoping to get to stay in them very, very soon. The pictures don’t do them justice!

Chattooga Club organic garden

And organic garden and hen house contributes to the rustic charm.

The spa is a one-of-a-kind experience.

Rivers’ own home is a beautiful blend of what we love about her style.

Laid back yet elegant, comfortable yet refined, we could move right in to any of Rivers’ perfectly appointed spaces.

What Design Bloggers are Saying about Slightly South of Simple (currently part of the Buy 2, Get 1 Free Promo at Barnes &Noble):

Thank you so much to Shelley from Crazy Wonderful!

“Let me start by saying I’m not a HUGE book person in that I don’t finish one book and immediately go on to another.  I may only get to one or two books a year.  But, when I find a good book I have a hard time putting it down.  Slightly South of Simple was like that for me.  I couldn’t wait to get to the next chapter!  This is your perfect read this summer…  If you have a list of books your going to read this summer, or if you’re like me and only read once in a while, do yourself a favor and grab this book.  I have no doubt you will fall for these women like I did.” —Shelley from Crazy Wonderful
