Holiday Havens

When the holidays become just too much - too much food, too much activity, too much noise, too much anything - a retreat to one of these rooms would be heaven sent!

Holiday Dining

These are some of my favorite dining rooms from over the years.  Some formal, some informal - but all are charming, colorful and most importantly, inviting!

Enjoy!

A French Country Christmas

Here is another of Charles Faudree's wonderful homes - his weekend home, better known as 'The Roost'.

Even though I gleaned these pictures from one of my old Traditional Home magazines (2002), they still look as classic today as they did then........and the timelessness is what makes it classic. 

I was mesmerized by his talent then and I still am.

Enjoy!
