Cashiers Showhouse Part II

In Part I we explored the greatness that was the setting for the 2015 Cashiers Showhouse. Today, we go inside!

This is the floorplan for the house if that helps you. It rambled so much we all got lost in a wonderful way.

Cathy Kincade knocked it out of the ballpark with this gorgeous wall. Love that table and those chairs and as Clinton Smith of Veranda Magazine was overheard saying, “And not an antler in sight.”  LOL

Cashiers’ Show House Part 1

I had the privilege of joining ADAC (where my fabric showroom is located) and the Atlanta Design Network for a bus trip to view the 2015 Cashiers Show House before it opened to the public last Friday. What a fun day! I actually enjoy bus rides because it gives you several hours to just concentrate on the people around you. I made many new friends and finally got caught up with my friend, Joy, who manages the Duralee showroom. We have had a very close relationship with all of the Duralee family since they bought the rights to my very first fabric design several years ago. Sweet peeps. I was excited to learn that they are moving a big chunk of their operations from NYC to North Carolina. The design team will remain in the city though; so I will still have an excuse to visit my favorite city!

Inspection Day Down South

 

 

After months and months of planning and scheming and tweaking and drawing, this beauty is coming together in a marvelous way! Inspection Day in the south end of the state was as much fun as the one we featured last week from the northern end.

Here is a little peek into the back story of how a house is birthed.

Cindy Barganier Interiors

Every wall, doorway and ceiling was examined to determine if it could be made better. Many heads create a great project.

It is really fun when you start to see the “flesh” come on the bones.

That ceiling. Those beams. Designer is happy. And wait ’til you see the antique doors from France that fit those door frames.  Yep.

They had to come down for staining but they are show stoppers!

Cindy Barganier Interiors

Love, love, loving the dark trim and the view that it frames.

Two weeks ago the view outside those windows looked like this.

Today!……..

The hot tub is in and ready for stone. The pool is ready for the liner and the dam has been expanded in order to double the size of the pond.

I am screaming. Hate that I never get excited about work anymore. 🙂

On the left side of the last frame this pretty boy is going up. Just in time for beautiful fall.

At the front of the house, things are just as exciting.

You know I am going to be adding wood. Here you go. (Trim is not finished).

And then, there are the bathrooms.

Europe, welcome to Bama!

I don’t think this shower is big enough.  Bring it! Steam shower.

Thank you for joining me on this little walk-through.

Cindy Barganier Interiors

 

And a big, heart felt thank you to these sweet girls from Auburn who have interned with us this summer and have been a huge part of this project.

War Eagle! And I hope you sleep at least two nights a week. Welcome to the world of design studios. I don’t miss that.

Enjoy!

Photo Shoot With Southern Lady

We had a blast staging houses for a recent photo shoot. Cindy Barganeir Interiors

 

The whole neighborhood got caught up in the excitement and came bearing garden flowers, food, smiles and well wishes.

Cindy Barganeir Interiors

 

We stripped Parish, one of my favorite go to places for all things fabulous, of their tabletop goodies for this sweet tablescape. Thank you Ashley!

Cindy Barganeir Interiors

Beth Bridges came over with her giant clam shell that I love and we began to fill it with happy dance flowers: blue hydrangeas and tiny ferns.

Farmer’s market loved us and it made for a yummy post shoot feast! Pretty green vase available at B Barganier Interiors.

Then the uber talented Marcy Simpson, senior photographer for Southern Lady Magazine, arrived and things really started hopping.

She worked straight for about eight hours THEN we started on the outside shots. These photographers work hard in some extreme weather.

The game here was “what position, which angle, what light and what “feel”. That’s a lot of questions at the end of a long day.

Too far away?

 

Cindy Barganeir Interiors

 

Too “in your face”?

 

 

Cindy Barganeir Interiors

 

Now that’s a pretty shot. Wonder how it looks in the camera? Glad you asked.

 

Cindy Barganeir Interiors

 

And that was just the first house. Grab your vitamins!

For the second one, she had to bring out the big guns…. umbrellas and lights were everywhere. It always amazes me how many rooms they shoot in total darkness though. Crazy, right? Layla from The Lettered Cottage was the first to do that. I was sure she had lost it. haha

And then ……… drum roll please……. like magic, it arrived.  And I cried happy tears and clients squealed and neighbors pointed out their favorite spots and Jeff and I hugged because all of the blood, sweat and tears had payed off.

It’s Site Inspection Week.

 

It’s site inspection week.

Remember the days when your kids were little… OK, when your GIRLS were little, and they would come home from school just bursting with exciting things to tell you about? And the words would come as a

rush so quickly

that there was no time to breathe,

no time to even comprehend what had been said?          But the joy was palatable?

Well that is sort of how I am right now. There has been no time to write but God has been so good and I have so much joy to share…..

 

I got so excited today I was jumping and screaming like a crazy woman.  Inspection week means I am on the road a lot and today, this happened.

 (Forgive the first two grainy iphone pics. I was driving.)

The old drive shoots off to the left through the trees. This was my first time to experience the new orientation.

Well, hello beautiful!

Old South architecture

And then I stepped inside….

and saw this

They are like our children. Just yesterday, it seems, it looked like this.

This is the view from inside.

And it just keeps getting better!

The cabinet man tells me that if I will select the hardware he will get those doors installed. oops!

kitchen design

If you are questioning the placement of the hood/island etc we will explore that in a later post. It was all about creating a site line from the fireplace.

I have a very long speech about the value of an architect. They really are worth their weight in gold when you understand what they bring to the table.

I have literally spent the entire summer re-drawing multiple plans to create symmetry and rhythm or to try to repair issues with proportion and scale that should have been addressed at the drafting stage. Some of it I understand. It is very hard for most people to look at a drawing and see it in 3-D so sometimes you just have to do it the hard way…. more on that later.

At the end of the day though it’s all about fulfilling dreams and that what we aim to do.

The flip side of the kitchen looks like this.

This is the dining room.

And finally, the master bedroom.

Marble is going in and an antique Waterford chandelier is being cleaned to join it. Wait til you see the tub! Yum!
marble walls
  And that’s just half of the first floor!   Tomorrow? Time to make some decisions on the rest of the lighting. Can’t wait.  

Thanks for letting me rave. To steal my friend’s line: “I dig my gig.”
