It’s been two years since I wrote about how much the North Carolina mountains moved me. Today, for my final Apartment Healing feature for November, I’m going to highlight a house that I’d love to have if I moved there.
This is Apartment Healing, the Saturday feature of the The Black Urbanist where I talk about my love of interior design. This month, I’ll be spotlighting a few of my favorite home tours from sites such as Apartment Therapy, AprhoChic and others that share my sense of simple, eclectic and transformative style, especially in spaces and places where its un-expected. Before we get back into the meat of the post, I’m releasing A Black Urbanist-Essays Vol. 1., this Monday. In honor of Small Business Saturday and Cyber Monday and in solidarity with those calling for support for black businesses this holiday season, the ebook is only $5, if you enter the code blacksmallbiz. Head here to get your copy.
I’m going to put the disclaimer out now, that this is technically a house in a town, that just so happens to be in a mountain valley. Still, any house where I can look out of the window and see mountain ranges, is a mountain house.
I’d like to highlight is in Franklin, North Carolina. Apartment Therapy has named it Elise’s Electic Cottage in the Mountains. I was immediately drawn in by her use of primary colors and this image of the sunroom/bedroom.
I love a good sunroom, especially when there’s more to it than patio furniture. This one has a full bed, and if you aren’t shy, you can sleep in what literally is the front of the house. The rest of the house has lots of blue, yellow, green and love pillows and florals. The article describes the house as having the effect of Dorothy walking into the world of color.
As a resident of an emerald city myself, I can appreciate that. Find out more about this house in the original article here.
This post is part of my participation in #NaBloPoMo, the time of the year when bloggers come together to pump out daily content and connect. Find out more about that project and how I’m participating, here and here.
