Some of you may know we have been in a long battle to honor my Dad’s wishes to keep his beloved mountain cabin as a family retreat. Well, that day has finally come and we now have a wonderful property in the North Georgia mountains for the whole family to enjoy. While the property was empty, there was a water leak that went undetected for some time. Needless to say, we have some renovations that need to happen. One of those spaces is a small bathroom that basically needed gutting. What could be considered a pain in the rear, is a blessing in disguise, as the whole home needs a little updating. These are the inspiration vanities:
The floors in this part of the cabin are 12″ Georgia pine, unstained. They naturally yellow over time. They were in the original cabin and cover the floors, walls, cathedral ceilings, so we will not be messing with those. Even though I’d rather see them less yellow, there is just too much square footage to try to change it.
We will create a pine countertop to match the floors. Here is the sink and faucet combo I’ll use:The sink is Kohler and the faucet is Newport Brass. And thinking about these light fixtures:Possibly this wallpaper from Duro of Sweden:
I’ll probably toss in a vintage mirror so I’m on the lookout for the right one. Maybe this one:
Anyone have any wonderful cabin inspiration out there? We’ve got lots of spaces to do and I look forward to sharing the process with you! We are shooting to spend our Thanksgiving holiday there, so I’ve got to get busy.
On another note, we leave this weekend for High Point market. Can’t wait to see what’s new out there. Look for our finds on Instagram. You can find me at @scoutdeb and Sarah at @sargibs Happy Monday everyone!
I can’t believe it’s been almost a month since High Point market and I haven’t even filled you in on what I took away as incoming trends. The consensus among designers was that it was a really good market. I think the reason is that there was color, color, and more color! After several seasons of “gray being the new black”, I know I for one, am excited to see some bright yet approachable colors in the next few seasons. The color that really stood out for me in all elements was PINK.
Pillows, walls, rugs, lighting, accessories, artwork and more!
So what are your thoughts on pink? Would you go for a pink wall covering in a room other than a girls’ room? I think pink can be very sophisticated and flattering when the right tone is used and in the right context. If you think you want to go pink, give me a call. I’d love to find the right place for it in your home.
We returned to the shop this morning after our fabulous trip to High Point. As expected, tons of things were waiting for us, some good and some not so good. One of the best things was the binder featuring the new Phillip Jeffries wallcovering collection.
Pretty wonderful! For us, wallpaper never went out of style, so we are thrilled with the resurgence of it. Phillip Jeffries does natural and textured papers like no other! This new collection hits the mark with color, texture and pattern. Contact Vintage Scout Interiors at firstname.lastname@example.org or 937-312-9461 if you would like to bring some of this magic into your home.
Another fun, successful day, exploring at market. So far, I think this is my favorite find. Acrylic antlers. Hot, hot, hot!
We had a little mini love affair at Bobo. Check out this dining table. Also available in round.
Planters from reclaimed wood, again from Bobo.
We are racking our brains where we can place this sconce from Bobo. It is amazing.
This is the kind of taxidermy Dana approves of. We love the bull. Once again, Bobo.
We found a great new source for some nice priced chandys and tables.
We noticed a trend toward deep seating. Seems every new chair or sofa sat a little deep for shorties like us. Hi Edith Ann!
Removable and repositional temporary wallpaper. Perfect for apartments or those of you afraid to commit.
Lots of antiques to look at here. This vintage train seat was really fun.
As soon as we post this, we hop the shuttle for another day of discovery. We come back to the hotel each night completely exhausted, but there is so much to say about the inspiration we draw just from being here. We’re excited to get back to the Store and start designing! Stay tuned…
