Blackberry Inspired

My sister-in-law Leslie works for Blackberry Farm, a luxury resort in the foothills of the Smoky Mountains of Tennessee. Last time I was there we toured some of the resort properties and I found the FarmHouse to be insanely cool. One of my favorite things about it was how they used painted pine instead of traditional drywall throughout the interior of the house. This is an alternative for drywall that really adds some amazing character.

Here is a shot of the Master Suite on the first floor of the Farmhouse. You can get a good look at the various widths of pine (which they painted dark brown). Simple and so clean.

They even used one width of pine on the ceiling throughout the whole house (6" planks)

Another good shot of the random plank widths of 4", 6", 8" and 10". I love how they use a 6" horizontal piece to break up the verticals in a chair rail layout.


  1. My cousin works for Oprah's chef and toured this facility..said it was amazing! I would LOVE to see it someday and horseback through there. WOW
