An Enchanting Mountain Hideaway from the New Southern Home

When our newest edition of Southern Home was placed on my desk, my heart skipped a beat when I came to the article “Mountain Hideaway.” In the fall I always dream of living in the mountains where the autumn leaves surround you with an explosion of color.

Toby West and Tom Hayes own the most enchanting cabin, and I wanted to share a few of the wonderful details that make this place my dream home in the mountains. As we all know, I am a red person. The exquisite red upholstery and decorative accents are just perfect for the setting. I love the contrast of the exposed logs and beams with sophisticated furniture and accessories.

Each chair gathered around the table is different, which adds character and an element of fun to the dining area; their lovely collection of red-and-white transferware completes the look.

While I loved everything about the home, I found myself especially thrilled when I came to the bedroom appointed with a red-and-white quilt elegantly arranged at the end of an antique oak bed. I would never tire of this peaceful room.

The entire magazine is filled with beautiful homes where every detail is perfectly planned and presented. There is something for everyone and every taste.

What is your dream home like? I would love to hear about it.

  1. I have been a fan of Toby West for years. Love all his mountain cabins (and the homes he has decorated in Seaside Fl.) So thank you so much for featuring him. I have not seen much of his work in magazines recently. I miss those beautiful rooms! We have been living in our dream home for 19 years with A LOT of red. It is currently featured in two magazines decorated for Christmas, but I would still like to build a smaller home in either Highlands, NC or Blowing Rock, NC…some place that gets snow. 🙂

  2. Phyllis, I want to move into that darling cabin today and spend the season. I love every room and would not change a single thing.
    Its just a feel good cabin with warmth, decorating style, and love.
    My kind of place, can’t wait to buy the magazine. As always, thanks
    for a feel good atmosphere to gaze at…Carmel

  3. Their cabin is lovely. It reminds me of the beloved Charles Faudree’s style that he used in decorating mountain homes.

  4. My husband has always wanted to live in a Log Cabin. I just couldn’t see me and my more formal things in
    a cabin. But after seeing this cabin, I have changed my mind. It is “rustic elegance” and I love it. Absolutely
    having you cake and eating it too. Beautiful.

  5. Thank you Phyllis for sharing such a Beautiful cabin. I am a red person also! I am in the mountains in Jackson Hole WY. Right now . Enjoying every minute. Being from Texas, every chance we get we head to the mountains to enjoy the cool weather and the beauty that God has created. Our Favorite place is Estes Park, CO. Hoffma Publishing is the Best. Love their magazines.

  6. My dream home is exactly where I live now, McKinney, Texas. I am a very fortunate gal! Love all the publications. Can’t wait to see the Chtistmas editions!

  7. Absolutely gorgeous! My fantasy is I have more than one dream home–one by the ocean, one in Deep South, one in Scotland, somewhere around the Mediterranean…and one in the mountains…which would certainly be this one!

  8. O wow , wish I could jump right into that cabin and stay !! I love red too. Looking forward to picking up this issue. Thank you Phillis !!

  9. The splendid interior so much reminds me of some of the enchanting interiors I’ve seen in Alsace France, I love it!
    Wish I could enjoy this beautiful issue curled up by one of those charming fireplaces. Thank you for such a pleasurable article.

  10. Beautiful magazine! Why wouldn’t it be? I have come to expect no less from Hoffman Publications. Being from NC, I have had the privilege to experience the beauty of our land from the mountains to the coast. I think a dream home for me would be anything located on a lake in the mountains! Almost
    heaven! Enjoy the season!

  11. I just picked this magazine up yesterday and I think that cabin was my favorite! Read the entire magazine in one sitting – yet another fine example of Hoffman publications. Thank you for keeping your standards high!
