Swoon: Blackberry Farm

This luxury resort in Walland, Tennessee is something dreams are made of.  Along with the  spectacularly designed cottages, farmhouses and barns, this place also offers cooking classes, fly fishing, horse back riding, hiking and a spa... what more could anyone ever want? It started as a 9- room farmhouse that played host to friends and family. Due to the perfect combination of the Smokey views, farm to table cuisine, and gorgeous interiors, it wasn't long before it expanded into one of the top rated hotel/inns in the United States.

BLACK and white

 From time to time, it makes me happy to drive around and look at gorgeous houses, dreaming and redoing little things in my head. I am partial to the black and white homes, which isn't really a surprise. They always seemed to be the most traditional, and in my opinion they look the most well built as well. Recently, I have been noticing this color combo in reverse, that is, black as the dominant color with white accents. I am not quite prepared to commit to liking it more than the traditional combo, but it is still strikingly beautiful....
