Skyland Hotel Apartment Kitchen (BEFORE)

The kitchen was definitely the most challenging to work with since I love to cook and had a lot of kitchen gadgets and dishes. I was motivated by Rachel Khoo from The Little Paris Kitchen. Kitchens in Paris are basically closet size and that doesn’t hinder them from cooking delicious meals for am entire family and even entertain guests.

The crown molding along ceiling and the long curtains makes the room look a bit more dramatic. French door knobs and push button light switches are a few little touches that add to the Parisian feel.
It has turned into a very comfy space. Everything has a home so we keep clutter to a minimum. A must when living in 468 square feet.

Fascinating man because of the life he led and the woman he married. A famous couple’s life helps us realize what the jazz era was all about. Their love story goes from a fairy tale to tragedy with lots of crazy living in between.

Quote- “The test of a first-rate intelligence is the ability to hold two opposed ideas in the mind at the same time, and still retain the ability to function.”


Scott began to write The Crack-Up essays while staying at the Skyland Hotel in Hendersonville, NC November to December 1935.
