TRADITIONAL HOME - Body & Soul: Blackberry Farm

The current issue of TRADITIONAL HOME features a 16 page article on the beautiful Blackberry Farm resort near Walland, Tennessee in the Great Smoky Mountains. A 4,200 acre working farm owned by Kreis and Sandy Beill, the Blackberry Farm resort is considered on of the finest small hotels in America.

Shown right is The Farmhouse, one of the many luxurious houses and cottages you may choose for your getaway. It, like many of the buildings at Blackberry Farm was thoughfully designed with calm luxury in mind. Paraphrasing from the article, Kreis directs the design of each guest room and facility often with her friend, Atlanta based designer Suzanne Kasler. Sandy, a highly trained culinary chef that has worked also in the wine business in California.

The living room of the Farmhouse is peaceful and elegant. Timeless pieces from Hickory Chair were selected to create this beautiful setting. A Townsend Wing Chair from the James River Collection, the Kate Cocktail Table from the Alexa Hampton Collection and the Lili Slipper Chair from the TOB Collection by Thomas O'Brien accentuate the fully upholstered sofa and lounge chair from the Upholstery Collection.

A group of Samantha Chairs by Alexa Hampton surround the Sheraton Dining Table from the James River Collection dining room at the Farmhouse. The dining room, like the other spaces, feature classic architecture, timeless furniture forms from various styles and periods and are adorned by modern art and accessories. The result are modern interiors that are both relaxing and inspiring.
