blog21aOver 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."

It's been so much fun designing these rooms as we go along.. The starting point for Room Twenty-Six was the rug, it has great colors like deep rich red and navy in it, and before too long I came across a fabric with much the same feeling and same colors both to edge the draperies with and to contrast with the new white bedding as a luxe pillow.

Rearranging the room allowed for the two natural focal points - the head of the bed, and those marvelous windows - to work together. The linen draperies catch the light and let the room just glow in the late afternoon sun. The antique chair found new life wearing two fabrics – a woven plaid and a great floral with the same colors in them as the rug.

The finished room captures everything we want for the Inn: timeless, gentlemanly, stately, with a few feminine touches.

Our Bed and Breakfast Inspiration

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.

blog16ablog16bInspiration for Room 24, now officially called "The Colonial Room",  came from some of the key elements of the room such as the fabulous fireplace mantel, the four-poster style bed,  the round, black mirror and pair of pewter candleholders which point to  Colonial Williamsburg. Cris Angsten, our Interior Decorator took these classic elements from that period's design style and aimed to make the room decor more comfortable and approachable.  Cris said "The idea isn’t to feel like you just stepped back in time. It’s the look, but updated and more comfortable."  The classic bedside lamps are an unexpected surprise.  Guests will also notice the richer color of the fireplace mantel.

We'll be sharing pictures of more redecorated rooms on Facebook and our new Pinterest page.

Chattanooga Urban Inn: Room 26
