I am very please to share that Victoria magazine has featured Chestnut Cottage in their October issue!
Victoria has long been a favorite publication of mine due to their features on travel, food, entertaining, and particularly English design!
I hope you will pick up a copy of the October Victoria, curl up in a comfy chair with a cup of tea and savor all this issue has to offer…including Chestnut Cottage!
Most people seem to enter Chestnut Cottage at the back door which opens directly into our spacious kitchen… where I spend a great deal of time.
All entertaining begins here!
I have recently added more “shades of blue and white” in the kitchen with a tree mural on the painted white tongue and groove paneling.
Shades of blue continue to be woven throughout the canvas of Chestnut Cottage.
Every piece of blue and white in this niche gets used regularly!
For the library, I commissioned an Asheville Artist, Bee Sieburg, for this painting depicting Portaferry, County Down, Northern Ireland, which is very close to my grandfather’s family home.
Bee also painted a typical County Down scene for our gathering room.
My favorite room at Chestnut Cottage is the library where blue and white is in every design element!
I’m not the only one who loves this room!
Stay tuned for other rooms featured in Victoria!
