Cashiers Designer Showhouse

September 8, 2009

Long time no blog, but I promise to get better.

A few weeks ago my fiancé met me down in Atlanta to help drive Lady Liberty (my Jeep) up to Boston.  After 20+ hours of driving, mostly by him, my move to New England was complete!

We had the great fortune of combining the drive with a stop over in gorgeous Cashiers, NC to attend the Cashiers Designer Showhouse opening party with my parents.  I wish I had a better camera on me that night, because it was the most exquisite party I have ever attended, but the iPhone served me well.  The house decorated and showcased was the THE NANCY HANKS HOUSE, in Cashiers, North Carolina, and designers from Atlanta, Ashville and beyond contributed their designs and visions.  The party and showhouse ticket sales go to benefit the Cashiers Historical Society.

(My mom swiped my program so I apologise sincerely that I am not able to give proper credit to the designers.)

This little sitting area was gorgeous with the black and white block rug, simply stacked books, traditional chair and sofa, and fun modern art.



I just love these two whimsical table settings.  Like a cabinet of curiosities or botany study.  Elegant indoors and out.




Scenes from the party.

Wish I had taken more, because it was fabulous.  The band, Anita, played late into the evening, whom we were particularly excited to see play as they  will be playing at our wedding in less than three weeks!  They were amazingly fun and extremely talented



I’ll leave you with more North Carolina scenes, courtesy of my fiancé

And as we approached Boston via I-90 a full rainbow appeared in the sky…Oh, Boston you’re my home…
