Adirondack Style

As the days get shorter and the weather turns colder, the urge to be cozy is a natural!  I came across a Trend Alert in Elle Decor that resonated with my desire for comfort!  Adirondack has been around for over 100 years and it is still just as appealing as ever.

An excerpt from the website Adrinoncack Design says: Adirondack architecture dates back to the 1800's. William West Durant has been credited as being the originator of this style, having created rustic estates for wealthy clients in the 1880's. His use of native materials such as birch bark wallpaper and rustic details was then and still is well known. The style quickly spread through the Adirondack Park, and eventually throughout the country, evident in mountainous areas from the Appalachians in North Carolina as far west as the Rocky Mountains.

I decided to dig through our designs and see what had this cozy American feeling. The focus on reds and greens accented with black and brown make it a great style for the holidays! Enjoy.
