Pat in her "Morning Room"
Tonight Pat Miker was the hostess for our DWTS group. I was so taken with her design ideas......AWESOME!!!!
This Blog is based on Interior Design and I have to share Pat's home with you all.
Her ideas are "Out of the Box". Very refreshing and ingenious.
Pat has taken a fabulous approach to the use of space in her beautiful Cumberland Hall Model.
CUMBERLAND HALL MODEL
Pat is photographed in her "Morning Room". It's the space designated as the Kitchen Eating Nook in the Model.... Pat has turned it into a welcoming, comfortable sitting area. She said when she first lived in the Atlanta area, everyone had Morning Rooms off their kitchen. What a unique use of this space.
But.....what really grabbed my attention was what she did with the Library!!!
She made it her DINING ROOM !!!!!! French Doors, marvelous chandelier ! It WORKS!!!!
For over a year I worked as "Cookie Lady" in the Model Homes. I spent most of my time in the Cumberland Hall Model. It is one of the most popular models and I found it interesting asking the buyers how they planned on using the different spaces!!! Not one ever came up with using the Library as a Dining Room!!!! I LOVE IT!!!
Pat also has a gorgeous crystal chandelier over her Master Bed. Now you know I love that!!!!!
Another innovative idea was adding up-lighting on the top of the kitchen cabinets. The picture is dark, but hopefully you will see the effect. And..... guess where her office is????? She converted her hall coat closet into a fabulous office space!! Very clever!
EVERYONE WAS SO INTERESTED IN HOW PAT DESIGNED AND USED HER SPACES.
THAT'S WHAT MAKES VISITING EACH OTHER'S HOMES SO MUCH FUN.
MC AND I , ALONG WITH THE MASONS, WILL RUN THE HOLIDAY TOUR OF HOMES THIS COMING DECEMBER. WE WILL HAVE APPROXIMATELY 10 TO 12 HOMES. I ASSURE YOU THAT THE "GUESTS" WILL BE MORE INTERESTED IN SEEING THE DESIGN IDEAS, THAN THE CHRISTMAS DECORS!!! WE FOUND THIS THE CASE LAST YEAR WHEN OUR HOME WAS ON THE TOUR. WE HAD ONE TREE, A WREATH OVER THE FIREPLACE AND A WREATH ON THE FRONT DOOR....THAT WAS THE EXTENT OF THE CHRISTMAS DECOR.....
