Interior Design goes Country - Part 2 - Ya'll Come Visit!

If you missed Part 1 of the Southern Living Showhouse
at Fontanel (formerly Barbara Mandrell's property)

This shows the Idea house and the Bunkies.

 Before leaving the main house, we may want 
to stop in the powder room. 
Iron, granite tile and a beautiful vessel sink 
make for a nice mix of textures.

We will exit the main house through the mud room and head down 
the porch steps to the guest house.

But we must pause a minute and take a look
inside Cesar's dog house! 

In the downstairs Guest House suite. Phoebe used a rich
mushroom brown and cream color palette.

I love everything neutral and calm in this area. 
The basket texture, trims and fabrics make this a 
perfect getaway spot.

The Fig is the new plant to replace the sad and
dated ficus!

All of the fabrics in the downstairs suite, 
outside and inside are Sunbrella! 

Those are tiles (not wallpaper) used as a wainscot in
the guest bath. They are also from 
Ann Sacks.

For the upstairs guest suite, Medium Ticking in 
Warm Gray by laurakiran.com.

The ceiling is oxblood red and a red trim, pillows and
accessories  are used with white bedding.

On either side of the main house are his and hers bunkies!
They mimic each other inside and out. 

Hers has a soft and airy feel used with shades of blue.
Not to sure about that head, but wonderful 

I love this old chest! I think I have one in 
the attic. Now how to do this aged finish!
This picture doesn't do the finish justice!

I like how they have hung the mirror over the window.
That way they can still take advantage of the natural light.

Perfect little kitchenette.
*I wish I had one of these cute houses to 
use for a work/getaway space! 

Here is a peek at his bunkie. 

Darker furniture and pieces that have a heavier
look, offer a more masculine feel.

Outside you will find an unique rain chain.
Rain chains drain water to the ground from your gutter. 
They are like an artistic water spout!

And here it is on a rainy day! Leslie said the sound of the rain on
the tin roof was incredible!

It is getting dark now, so we must be leaving the house.
Lets go have a glass of wine and talk about all the
wonderful ideas we have seen today!
