Long before the hip Southside district, long before the galleries and boutiques came to North Shore with the Walnut Street bridge reopening, and ten years before the Tennessee Aquarium was built, the Riverbend Festival was one of the first signs of life in a blighted, polluted town. The city was down on its luck. It was dirty and dangerous and no one came to downtown after dark. Locals had moved to the suburbs, and none of the vibrant riverfront nightlife we now associate with Chattanooga existed. That changed when several powerhouse local businesses and foundations came together and brought The…

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…
