Anglophilia meets Appalachia at Highlands Mountain House, newly opened lodgings in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina. There, in a redone 1885 house (and adjacent bunkhouse), charming wallpapers and textiles from Morris & Co. and House of Hackney mix with works by Cherokee artists and by Josef Albers (who taught at Black Mountain College nearby). Each guest room is a delightful lesson in pattern mixing, with the feel of a whimsical English house in an unlikely spot.
Let’s take a tour:
