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 River, 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,
To minimalistic and cozy,
Every detail of Rivers’ rooms tells a story.
Combined with an enviable view, it’s a stunning combination!
One of our favorite stops in Cashiers was Rivers’ incredible Chattooga Club.
Of all the places we visited on our fun-filled adventure, we think it might have been our very favorite.
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!
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.
Are you a fan of mountain style? Thanks for making Design Chic a part of your day!
