House Tour: Charming Mountain Cabin

Greg Busch and Meridy King cabin

 

When the temps start to drop, the days get shorter and the leaves begin to change, we immediately want to escape to a charming cabin

If you’re like us, you’re still limiting your travel for now.

But, lucky for us, Greg Busch and Meridy King and Atlanta Homes & Lifestyles are letting us share this absolutely pitch-perfect cabin that is the ultimate place to while away a few fall days by the fire.

For the epitome of cabin style, rustic wood paneling is an absolute must–and these designers have absolutely nailed it, even in the kitchen.

Elegant yet outdoorsy finishes create a seamless transition from the indoors to the lovely porches,

And wood beams and a stone fireplace lend that mountain feel in droves.

Every vignette is thoughtfully designed to capture the feel of the beauty outside the door,

And practically made for a good night’s sleep and capturing a stunning view to wake up to.

We are huge fans of having guests, and these lovely guest rooms are the perfect place to house plenty of them–

And a sophisticated bunk room is great for welcoming friends of any age.

Even the bathroom details are teeming with mountain style.

Simple accessories create showstopping moments,

As each room flows seamlessly into the next.

We think this is the perfect place to getaway all fall long. Are you a fan of this stunning mountain retreat?

The only thing better than fall at the beach is fall in the mountains.

Here’s What’s Next from the Murphy Women:

From internationally bestselling author and “rising star of Southern fiction” (Mary Alice Monroe, New York Times bestselling author) Kristy Woodson Harvey comes the third novel in her Peachtree Bluff series, in which a secret threatens the tight-knit bond between a trio of sisters and their mother.

With the man of her dreams back in her life and all three of her daughters happy, Ansley Murphy should be content. But she can’t help but feel like it’s all a little too good to be true.

Meanwhile, youngest daughter and actress Emerson, who is recently engaged and has just landed the role of a lifetime, seemingly has the world by the tail. Only, something she can’t quite put her finger on is worrying her—and it has nothing to do with her recent health scare.

When two new women arrive in Peachtree Bluff—one who has the potential to wreck Ansley’s happiness and one who could tear Emerson’s world apart—everything is put in perspective. And after secrets that were never meant to be told come to light, the powerful bond between the Murphy sisters and their mother comes crumbling down, testing their devotion to each other and forcing them to evaluate the meaning of family.

With Kristy Woodson Harvey’s signature charm, wit, and heart, The Southern Side of Paradise is another masterful Peachtree Bluff novel that proves she is a “Southern writer with staying power” (Booklist).

In Good Taste: Muskoska Living Design

For us, the holidays are about coming together, 

A time to gather family and friends to celebrate a year well lived and that the best is yet to come. 

So the holidays are probably the time that we’re most focused on our homes, on how well our living spaces entertain, how cozy our dining rooms are. 

Fabulous Muskoka Living of Ontario creates spaces that are absolutely perfect for special gatherings and entertaining–not only at the holidays but all year long.

We can picture a festive Thanksgiving lunch around this table,

A quick summer breakfast at this island

before jumping into the lake, of course!

Fall cocktails by this fireplace would be absolutely spectacular, 

And, of course, Muskoka Living even created the perfect space for us to clean up when it’s all over!

From charming architectural details that can’t help but define a space, 

To cozy, warm areas for finding calm and peace,

From a quick spruce to total design-build management

Muskoka Living creates the kind of spaces that we would want to return to again and again–holidays or not!

What do you do to prepare for a holiday crowd?

Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by our little corner of the web today. We always love seeing you!

House Tour: The Beauty of Cashiers

Cashiers living room

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

Cashiers dining room

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!

Cashiers living room

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

Cashiers kitchen

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

Cashiers dining room

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.

Cashiers living room

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

Cashiers bedroom

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

Blue and white bedroom

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

blue and white bedroom with built-in beds

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

bedroom Cashiers

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!
