I am back from the "wine country"....no not Napa...but to my amazement Georgia has a smaller version. When I say small...like 5-6 but hey it is only an hour away in Dahlonega.
We stayed at Mountain Laurel Creek Inn and Spa. Hello comfort.
Seriously Dennis and David thought of everything. The beds were so comfortable, breakfast every morning....and the massage was perfect. I will go back.
We went to 4 wineries...and hands down our favorite was Wolf Mountain Vineyards and Winery. Good wine and gorgeous setting. We also hired a taxi for all three days [you know wine tastings!] and spent less then we would have if we had taken the tour bus. Good to know. I don't like a tour bus unless I'm with a famous rock star.
I don't want to spend this whole post talking about it but if anyone is interested in the details please email me.....It is only an hour from Atlanta!
Before I left I started working on a new project. It is a master bedroom and I think I better check with the client before I post a before picture. You know I lucked out during the ORC being so daring...
Here are a few of the plans I showed her....
The walls are a very dark brown now and the first thing that will happen is to lighten those babies up. We will do a new headboard and with this one it could be the dark brown velvet or the light blue/gray velvet....
You might be thinking that I am a one trick pony. Always the same colors....but this is what they asked for. After speaking with the manager of Kravet the other day and she said that these colors are still going strong......I think we can all admit that soft neutrals work well for bedrooms.
Number 2....maybe my favorite. Besides the bedding we will have a chaise and chair in this room so there is plenty of places for pretty pillows! I am thinking the brown/taupe velvet for the headboard.
Just in case...I threw together these gray fabrics. You never know right?
Nice trims for some neutral curtains.
This was the last one. She emailed me last night with her pick! Any guesses?
I have been so irresponsible lately about reading blogs.....too much vacation and out of my routine. Shame on me. All it takes is a week and you can be so outdated....then you are having a conversation and someone will say..."whoa girl...chevron is so July".
One more bit of news....I am working with Room Service again this year. More to come but expect me to be asking for help from my wonderful readers :)
Here are some pictures from my room last year.
