The Holladay House in Orange, Virginia has witnessed over 175 years of American history and is now a bed and breakfast inn. Built in the Federal architectural style, the Holladay House is located in central Virginia wine country amidst some of our nation's most historic sites.
Originally built in 1901, this historic building was purchased by country singer, Miranda Lambert, and renovated into a boutique bed and breakfast. Efforts were made to salvage much of the original millwork and plaster, the entire building was rewired, and central heat and air was installed. Where the original building could not be salvaged, sheet rock was hung where original plaster walls had been, and walls and ceilings were filled out with wood. To preserve as much of the original building as possible, most of the work had to be done in the attic as well as crawl spaces between each floor.
Each bedroom designed by Phara Queen has loads of character and their own style. In this design, ruby red throw pillows pair with the thick red curtains to bring bold color and interest to the otherwise neutral and gray palette.
The bar area boasts rustic flair with a wood paneled accent wall, wood bar and taxidermy on the wall. Mixing patterns and textures and pairing the old with the new creates a cohesive palette that is cozy, yet adds an unexpected element of fun to keep people coming back for more.
Fresh white linens and a painted headboard create a dreamy look in this Mediterranean-inspired bedroom. A tasseled Roman shade and an urn table lamp are romantic accessories, while rough-hewn beams add rustic character to the feminine design.
