Over the past few months, Cris Angsten, Interior Decorator, has been busy assisting the StoneFort Inn with redecorating the Inn. Here are some of her thoughts:
"The general idea for the redecoration of the StoneFort Inn is to make it a little more balanced between feminine and masculine. It's naturally a masculine building, with its Civil War history, exposed brick and solid timbers. We sought to make it a little more timeless than historic – for example, using classic furnishings and prints, but updating them so they offer that wonderful gathered-over-time feel."
Room 28 is a bit Gentleman meets Elle Décor – Old World richness, texture and a touch of glamour. The trim on the curtains is a rich, deep green velvet Greek Key, too luxurious not to touch! Green is found in doses throughout the space.
Textures are in all the textiles in the room – from velvet pillows to the almost carpetbagger feeling fabric on the channelback chair. The large gold-framed mirror reflects more light into the room and adds a little drama, and contrast is brought in with wonderful antique and vintage wood furniture.
