I’ve already established that I’m a sucker for historic houses and museums. But historic house RUINS! What can be more romantic? There’s something absolutely stunning about a home that’s been abandoned and reclaimed by nature (usually in an intentional, manicured way).
So naturally, I was drawn to this styled shoot at Barnsley Resort. The Resort is the original site of Woodlands, an estate built in the 1840s in the north Georgia foothills. The home was directly in the path of General Sherman and was devastated by the Civil War, never returning to its former glory. In 1906 a tornado ripped off the roof of the manor house, which was sold in the 1940s by descendants of the original owners. In 1988 Prince Hubertes Fugger of Bavaria purchased the estate and revived it. Today it’s a glamorous resort, part of the Southern Living Hotel Collection. What a story!
So naturally, this is the ideal setting for a gorgeous inspiration shoot, designed by Edge Designs and Crush Event Rentals, photographed by Andie Freeman Photography. I love the stunning lounge furniture situated among the manor ruins, the beautiful drapes and dramatic florals. Enjoy!
I love the pop of neon in the drapery – such a juxtaposition to the natural surroundings!
This is a fantastic idea – wrapping the books with a photo of the ruins!
What’s your favorite detail? It’s hard to pick just one! Let me know in the comments!
