As I mentioned in an earlier post, the Alabama Chanin workshop's location - Springhouse Restaurant at Lake Martin - was equally wonderful. In fact, it was a perfect companion for the workshop.
This first group of photographs is of the spectacular views from the restaurant. This place is beautiful (even during winter)!! :)
Isn't this fireplace beautiful? All the stonework is by a local stone craftsman. (I want a fireplace like this one so bad!)
The stone artist's (and he is an artist) signature are these carved faces hidden behind a stone door. I love elements like this. The stone opens up and you get a nice little surprise. This fireplace had one on each side.
I love the burlap pendant over the table. I almost chose one similar to this for the kitchen eating area in our home. I went with linen instead. That burlap looks great though.
My photo doesn't do the glass tile justice. I love the contrast with the stone. Beautiful. I have a stone and glass backsplash planned for my house - long skinny tiles just like these.
I also love these sconces. It really felt like candlelight.
Okay. That's it. I know this was a long post, but hopefully you've enjoyed this little tour.
Enjoy your weekend.
