nspired is the only word that can describe Atlanta designer Bill Cook’s home in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Highlands, North Carolina. With an amazing mix of reclaimed barn beams, stone, and poplar bark, architect Michael Faust has created a ‘Storybook’ inspired cottage perched high on a hill overlooking Mirror Lake. Over the next few posts I will take you on a guided tour of the home–so grab a cup of coffee, a warm blanket and nestle in for all of the charm—starting at the front door.
This home is featured in the current issue of Atlanta Homes & Lifestyles. Also, Bill and Michael’s company, Vermilion Designs, will be having an Insider’s Event in association with the magazine, ‘Vintage and Designer Picks: Cabin and Lodge’ on One Kings Lane starting Sunday, November 18th at 9:00 pm. It will feature a wide range of 18th, 19th and 20th century one-of-a-kind antiques. Check it out and shop ’til you drop!
Much, much more of this charming cottage to come in the next post. Check back soon!
