Twinkling trees, a wonderful estate set among rolling hills in North Carolina
and lots of inspiration to be found around every corner…
The Biltmore in Asheville did not disappoint
and today I am sharing a glimpse…
for over a week long full of several events.
The first- being Market and a book signing at Eloquence.
After a red-eye flight that unfortunately was not conducive to sleeping- I arrived at Market
and quickly freshened up before the signing.
It was so wonderful to meet so many of you- you can read more about Eloquence and the signing here
I wrapped up at Market on Sunday with a fun event with HGTV and Surya
and then got ready for a drive through North Carolina to the mountains
and to the Biltmore.
This was my first time in this part of NC as well as to seeing The Biltmore in person.
It is incredible.
The outside. The inside. The gardens.
So much beauty around every corner.
I took a ton of photos- and the place is HUGE- so will break this up into 2 posts-
otherwise you might need a couple pots of coffee to get through all the photos.
Every single room in The Biltmore was dressed amazingly.
Elegant. Refined. and yet- welcoming and warm.
And can we talk about those floors?
And this hand painted ceiling?
This was in the Library.
That was literally the size of the library in town.
Another incredible ceiling
Fell in love with this blue wallpaper.
There were trees tucked pretty much everywhere.
This was the servants dining area I believe.
The fireplaces were grand in detail, scale and elegance.
Seriously wanted to wander over and grab a few close ups.
Even from here the details and intricate carvings looked incredible.
They were setting up the many Christmas trees they put up for the season while we were there.
And this one was in a bedroom- my kind of house. 🙂
Each of the bedrooms we saw were dressed impeccably.
This one is gorgeous red velvet with a canopy and detailed embroidery.
And can we talk about that ceiling height?
And – I discovered why the maid and butler have not been in our house in so long.
I am clearly missing the buttons to give them a call and request them.
In all seriousness though- how awesome is that?
Definitely need these buttons.
In the basement- which did not look like a basement at all
A bowling alley
and a swimming pool.
I am pretty sure our basement needs a pool…putting that on the project list.
We were at the Biltmore to do more than just drool as we wandered
we were there with Balsam Hill to celebrate a new partnership
The new Biltmore by Balsam Hill collection.
It has a signature tree and ornaments collection
and folks… it is INCREDIBLE.
This is the tree I decorated using the new Biltmore collection
Much closer look coming soon- and you can
shop the look here:
And stay tuned for another fun share with Balsam Hill coming your way soon about the tree close up
AND a post all about the architectural details
and gardens at The Biltmore
Because, they did not disappoint either. SO. PRETTY.
Happy Monday everyone.
