Bourbon County Historic Home

kentucky homes and gardensWe made the cover!  Well, technically, the home and the interior designers made the cover of Kentucky Homes and Gardens Magazine.  But we had a rug and furniture as the focal point in this amazing Bourbon County historic home, and that makes us feel pretty special.  Actually, we had quite a few rugs and pieces of furniture for this client, and we are extremely grateful to everyone who was involved in the project!

The customer recently moved to Kentucky from Florida and began renovating this 1800’s home on a working horse farm in Bourbon County, near Georgetown and Paris.  The homeowners worked with both Kimbrel/Birkman Interiors and Polka Dots and Rosebuds Interiors to create a comfortable home with modern amenities and timeless decor.

The formal dining room opens to an enclosed porch, and has very traditional Chipendale dining chairs and pedestal table.  Another rug from the Nourison Nourmak collection was chosen to accent wall colors and window treatments.

A guest apartment off of the formal living room features sofas and loveseats with a damask pattern to match the overstuffed chair.  Two matching rugs from Jaipur Rug’s Opus collection added a punch of color to coordinate with existing distinctive patterns.
