Joanna Gaines' guiding principle in designing for the carriage house was to incorporate as much character as possible and do so in a style that suitably matched that of the recently restored B&B. She added rustic accents like the tool bin used for filing papers, french doors and an antique wood desk.

This woodsy and witty bathroom from Vermilion Design Interiors took its cue from a fox who designer Bill Cook says decorated this carriage house bath with some of his favorite things. Cook adds that, "while our main space of the apartment was inspired by a country English gentleman’s den, we chose to give the bathroom more of a sense of whimsy and humor. We even had a bar set up, because we felt that this Fox was a bit of a playboy."
The home was originally built in 1921, but extensive renovations has brought the space up to date for modern times while maintaining the home's historic character. The estate includes a three-story main residence and a charming carriage-turned-guest house.
Adorable wallpaper from Spoonflower is the highlight of this Carriage House powder room from Vermilion Design Interiors with offices in both Atlanta and Highlands, North Carolina. Designer Bill Cook of Vermilion was inspired by the home's name, Foxtail, and so decided to decorate this bath appropriately. Cook says he "thought that this was the bath of a rather flamboyant and elusive fox who had escaped the hunt and flaunted his friends and family on the walls...swiping a couple of the red wool British hunting jackets and repurposing them as sink and window treatments."
The existing landscape provided a challenge, but also the opportunity to design outdoor living spaces on several levels. The flat-roofed family room needed a pitched roof to blend with the existing house, but the roof, along with the turret, couldn’t block existing windows. To accomplish the homeowners’ vision, interior walls had to be removed, but they were constructed of clay blocks, which supported two-story block walls above. We continued the 16:12 pitched roof over the existing family room, but shifted it back to allow light into the third-story window. The same pitched roof covers the garage addition, but a reverse gable with paneled accents provides interest and a carriage house feel.
