Logs and Lucite

Did you ever think you would hear those two words in the same sentence? The combination was truly a thing of beauty when designed by the always amazing Charles Faudree for the Cashiers North Carolina Designer Showhouse. The rustic log room with stone floors was decorated as a French inspired office. Mr. Faudree used a Lucite desk to visually lighten the room and let the Art and log walls be the ‘stars’ of this awesome room. I love that he included a small sitting area in this space–just the perfect place for coffee in the morning or a glass of wine after the day’s work is done.

These panels are the stars of this room. I would love to work here.

Small French chest used in this akward corner–so unexpected!

The sitting area is full of light and possibilities–cocktails anyone?

Checked draperies, a linen loveseat ,a Staffordshire lamp and stone floors–perfection!

I love this antique French urn used on the Entry table–ys please.

Mix a piece of contemporary furniture with antiques for a totally unique look! I went home and rearranged my furniture after visiting this house. Will you?
