Last weekend, seven of my closest friends from Colorado, Florida, and Maryland met me here in Chattanooga and we all stayed at the Stonefort Inn. My friends loved the charm and personality of the Inn and the Inn's wonderful staff. Each room is so unique and comfortable, and the limestone dining room is spectacular. The highlights at the Inn included the wine & cheese hour, chocolate covered strawberries, and, of course, the fabulous breakfast that is included with the room fees. Normally, I take our visitors to some of Chattanooga's big attractions such as the Tennessee Aquarium, Southern Belle and…

Chattanooga Urban Inn: Room 26

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…
Inspiration 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…

Our Bed and Breakfast Inspiration

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…
