If you’re like us, you believe that good taste never means just one thing. It can apply to a range of styles, a mix of materials and all sorts of different feels. Hernandez Greene Interior Design creates a variety of worlds for its clients, each one encapsulating a style–and a version of good taste–that reflects the family that lives within. We hope you enjoy these stunning rooms as much as we did!

What Bloggers are Saying about Slightly South of Simple:

“[I]f I recommend one book to you this year (so far), let it be Slightly South of Simple for your first beach read. The darling and charming Kristy Woodson Harvey’s latest novel is the definition of a summer novel. I loved it almost as I love her.”–Jessica, Simply Bedazzled

House Tour: Cashiers

We love finding new places we love, and, as you probably gathered from our post yesterday, we absolutely loved Cashiers, NC! 

We stayed in a charming mountain cabin that was one of the highlights of the trip. Atlanta Homes & Lifestyles called this home “Cashiers Cool,” and we think that’s the perfect description!

This house embodies that enviable rustic luxury that provides the best of all possible design worlds. 

A clean, sleek, streamlined heart of the home sets the tone for a beautiful escape.

Creating a mountain retreat is much like creating a coastal retreat in that, when it comes to adding rustic charm, less is more. The wooden base of this table is the perfect mountainous touch in the breakfast room.

Window in front of the vanity? No problem! Just cover it with a mirror. We adore this idea!

Beams are the perfect mountainous touch in this stunning master bath–and the hardware steals the show in these builtins. 

Textures and fabrics combine in this room to make it feel luxe, layered and cozy. 

Rich hues and bold stripes combine for making the perfect bunk room. This one makes the most of a sloped ceiling. 

A mix of light and dark colors makes this room feel warm and cozy but still light enough to be clean and refreshing.

The best part of Cashiers? Why the view, of course! It’s the thing that, no doubt, keeps people coming back again and again. Do you love this Cashiers home as much as we do? Wishing you a wonderful day!

Library Restaurant in Cashiers, NC

The Library Restaurant and Bar - Cashiers, NC

Good morning, chic readers! We hope you had an amazing weekend. We had the most fun on our trip to Cashiers, NC last week. We think it is certainly one of the most beautiful spots in the country. 

The Library Restaurant - Cashiers, NC

We rented a house on the property of the High Hampton Inn and Country Club, which, incidentally, was the setting for the remake of Dirty Dancing. From the youngest to the oldest, we all loved this beautiful spot, with its hiking, lake activities and charming dining hall that seems like a throwback to a simpler time. 

Buttermilk Pie with Bing Cherry Compote

One of the highlights was our dinner at Library Restaurant – Cashiers, NC, a new favorite!

The Library Restaurant - Cashiers, NC

Owned by Chicos founders Marvin and Helene Gralnick and the utterly charming Liz Klapdohr and Chef Johannes, the restaurant is eclectic, warm and as inviting as its owners.

 

The stunning chandelier in the bar area is the only thing that survived Hurricane Katrina in the New Orleans Chicos location. It stands proudly lighting this beautiful yet chicly rustic space, which was originally a members only club where people could drink legally during Prohibition.

The bacon-maple rosemary popcorn and vegetable house chips with romesco sauce are not to be missed.

And the garden salad, marinated vegetables, toasted pecans, and passion fruit-tupelo honey vinaigrette go way beyond basic salads.

The east coast oysters with bloody mary- wasabi vinaigrette, memo chives and lime dust are transformative.

But, beyond the food, which was, we all agreed, among the best we have ever had, we have seldom felt so welcomed and so at ease in a space–even with a five year old. 

Buttermilk Pie with Bing Cherry Compote

Liz regaled us with a kitchen tour where my little guy got to have his Library hat signed by all of the chefs. He was thrilled!

And there was even a delectable gourmet children’s menu with meals made from all of the same local ingredients as the main menu.

And the dessert was legendary. We had this buttermilk pie with bing cherry compote–and a brownie with ice cream–and they were the perfect sweet complement to a truly extraordinary meal.

But perhaps the best part of this extraordinary restaurant was the incredible art, created by owner Marvin Gralnick.

It is abstract, fun and completely fabulous.

The art is the perfect juxtaposition to the interior of the restaurant.

And a good reminder to relax…

And be happy, which, once you visit the Library, you really can’t help but be both of those things. When it comes to summer vacations, this one was tops. Do you have any fun trips planned for the summer?

What design bloggers are saying about Slightly South of Simple (Currently on the Buy 2, Get 1 Free Promotion at Barnes and Noble!): 

“Kristy’s books are wonderful southern fiction and all of them have a mother daughter element that makes you reflect on your own relationship with your mother.  Her writing has touched me personally, and not just because I live in Charlotte and Kristy is a North Carolina native… I am now starting her third novel that debuted in April, Slightly South of Simple, and just like the others two books, I can’t put it down!” —Sarah Sofia Productions
