No Hillbillies Here.....For Sure!


 Hillbilly - the definition A person from the backwoods or a remote mountain area.

That's what you might think from this first picture. Right?

Do you want to go inside and see how beautiful this place is?
I think it is the perfect place for all of us blogging pals to spend a nice long weekend.

Let's go down the English garden path to the house.
You will love it.
I know I do.

Could you die?
I am. I am dying right her in bed while I am tapping these words out on my little laptop.
* my little laptop just got back from the hospital ( after the magic ass episode) and is doing well...thank you very much!!!

Could you have a sweet dream here?
I could.



Check out the little French cafe chairs.
I can see us sitting around that very table 'dishing' the dirt.....
*dishing what we dare not type out and put on our blogs.
Wouldn't it be fun?

Anyway, back to this gorgeous place.
I love this kitchen.....the cabinets and the finish is too yummy.
I don't need to say a word about the appliances. Do I?

Oh look...it's me. All  ready for my morning ride.

Would you enjoy a weekend in this home? 
Don't you think a blogging pal weekend would be fun?
Could you dish ?


*Is this place too rustic for you?

  3. Well Renee, I'm English and, although my house looks nothing like that, I have those exact chairs in my dining room !!!!....although, they do have more of a French influence.
    What a wonderful place. We went to a similar place in the Appalachian mountains called Sugar Tree Inn and, although not quite as luxurious, it was wonderful. The one that you have shown looks rural, somewhat authentic but with a luxurious touch. This is where I would like to spend some time. Absolutely smashing ( that's my enthusiastic English !! XXXX

    Boy,
    That looks like Cole's client's summer place just out of ASHVILLE.
    Not the inside, that is right up my ally.
    Set your watches and we'll all meet there.

  8. Alright friend, catch your breath! Isn't this an amazing place! I've been to this property, but these structures had not been built yet. Everything else I saw was quite lovely as well--but this one IS THE BEST!!!!!!

  9. Smokey Mountains and Magic Ass?!!
    ..oh, my.

    I would love to transplant that space and setting straight in sandwiched in the city. Nothing more odd and whimsical than a log cabin on a busy boulevard to make stop and think.

  15. this s igetting to be a pain in the ass.
    the anon commenting jerks will spoil 'commenting' for everyone.
    do i have to remove the anonymous option for my commenting?

    it is always amazing to me, that people do this stuff. promote stuff in the middle of an unrelated post.

    that no one would be interested in.

    i say yucko to you.

  20. I think is dreamlike. You take the horse. I'll take the range in the kitchen. And yes, I am on a campaign to rid the Anon button. Screen names, yes. ANON, just an invitation to cowards who love to hurt or hurl insults. Who needs that?

Thanks for participating!!

About Renée Finberg

I have been in this business since the age of 22.

I love what I do and cannot imagine my life without Design.

Design Challenges are great.

And because of those challenges

I have imported fine antique pieces from Paris,

Designed and Manufactured Furniture,

Created Fantastic Window Treatments,

And solved all kinds of spatial & architectural issues

With my unique style.

If I can't find it, I create it.

My rooms would make excellent movie sets.

I am a visual, tactile and audio sensitive individual.

Creating is what I live for, not math, not spelling, not science.

Just Great Design.

Just imagine how it would be if each of us,

If only for a few hours of everyday,We could be in a space that is our very own.A place that is exactly the way we want it to be

Surrounded by all the things we wanted to see,

The atmosphere we wanted feel, smell and the sound we wanted to listen to.
