"In this house," she says simply, "we're able to live in the moment and in the midst of all of the things that are so wonderful about our family."
We just returned from a weekend in Asheville, NC where we attended a beautiful wedding ceremony on a farm. In between the rehearsal dinner and the wedding ceremony, we squeezed in a few hours to check out the main drag. Asheville's quaint and friendly town is due in large part to its appreciation of tradition mixed with modern taste, resulting in unique shops, restaurants, and homes that are full of personality. For a great example, here's Christie Rogers' 1,500 sq ft home that was designed by her father on the Elk Mountain and featured in Asheville's own WNC magazine. A few more shots after the jump...
Living room. "As far as the house was concerned, small was the first order of business," she says. "I wanted to live in every part of it. I didn't need any formal rooms."
