The 2013 Cashiers Designer Showhouse "Serenity!" Part 2

Do you have times when things seem a bit overwhelming?

It just seems since we went to the Cashiers Showhouse and I got Part 1 
out, that I have been going in circles! I know it doesn't have anything
to do with family birthdays, a visit to St. Simons, 
committee meetings, paperwork (lots of that) 
trips to ADAC and area stores to find that
special something, and client appointments. 
The days just keep flying past me.

But finally, I am slowing down and grabbing some time to share
the rest of this fabulous showhouse with you!  
Here is the link to the part 1 in case you missed it.

We left off on the path leaving from the deck of the main house.
As we wind down the path, we come across what was 
originally a bunk house for the owners grandchildren. 
The inside now has an entirely new look from the designers.

We will go in the door on the left that opens up
into the living area. 

This was such a great place and even though the square footage
was small it felt big!

Lovely downstairs bedroom, designed by Kathryn Greeley. She always 
does beautiful rooms with exceptional details.

Upstairs you will find an artist loft with room to work 
and sleep.

This room was created by one of my absolute favorite designers, 
Charles Faudree. You can click Here to read about a past 
encounter with Charles and his friend Leslie, who we were so fortunate 
to meet at a past showhouse. In this showhouse he turned this
space into a combination  library - dining room.

On the back porch we found a fabulous little sleeping porch!

We next followed the path again. This time it  took us down to 
Guest House. I loved this special place! I could have moved 
right in! 

Too the left was a dining area and to the right was the
perfect place to visit with friends or curl up and read.

You enter into a large open room that houses
the living and the kitchen/dining area. 
This area was done by Francie Hargrove. 
Francie is one talented designer and a 
graduate of Gainesville's Brenau College. 
She is a great example of the new Southern Gal. 
If you are ever in the Cashiers area, be sure and
visit her shop. You will not be disappointed! 

As you head towards the back of the house you
entered a central hallway. 

Too the left was as bedroom with beautiful bedding.
The wonderful Chinese red continues into the bath off of
the bedroom.

Then sitting area has a modern twist.

and another bath off of it has  great
walls of old black and white photos! 

Another beautifully landscaped bath will take 
us down to the horses and stables! 

The stables were set up with a fantastic collection of artwork 
and gifts for sell.

Outside were beautiful flower baskets and containers you could
also purchase!

I hope you have enjoyed the tour of Serenity Acres. Be sure and 
make plans to head to Cashier's in August for next years showhouse, you will be
glad you did!
