Cashiers Designers Showhouse Pops With Fall Colors

Today begins the first full day of Fall, and many of us are ready for cooler weather and the beauty of the changing foliage.  When I visited the Cashiers Designer Showhouse earlier this month, I adored this lounging porch designed by Francie Hargrove.

The designer’s use of brown and orange reminded me of the fall season.  Fall weather is perfect for outdoor living so consider creating an outdoor space for you, your family and friends to enjoy the changing season. This room has a handsome outdoor fireplace.  No fireplace, easy solution — consider adding a fire pit. You also can add brown and orange accessories to your seating area to create an outdoor space to reflect and enjoy the changing leaves.

I love the brown and cream large-scale gingham along with the contrast of colors – the orange pops off the earthy brown upholstery on the lounging porch. Notice the mixture of textures and pattern as well.

Even though the Showhouse has closed, Cashiers, North Carolina is a wonderful place to visit — especially for those with an eye for design.  If you’re in the area, make sure you visit places such as Vivianne Metzger AntiquesRustics, D. Estes Antiques, Etc., Dovetail Antiques, Ryan and Company Antiques, Tess at Chestnut Square, and Bound’s Cave.  They offer wonderful furniture and accessories with character and history.  Sophisticated and distinctive, their pieces are sure to be the perfect complement to your homes.

On a side note, take a look at this Cashiers Designer Showhouse ad that I helped style with Atlanta Homes & Lifestyles’ Brad Hanner.  We had so much fun gathering antiques and other accessories from local antique dealers in Cashiers.
