A trip to Nashville, and falling in love with drapery.








As I mentioned in a previous post, we hit the Tennessee State Fair this weekend. I will write about it once I wade through the dozens and dozens of photos of Lydia standing next to goats and pigs. However, I couldn’t wait to show you some photos of the hotel we stayed at, Union Station - A Wyndham Historical Hotel.


Nashville has incredible history and dazzling architecture and this hotel encompasses the very best of both. It was originally constructed over 100 years ago as the main train station in the area. The main terminal is now the lobby and is utterly breathtaking. 65-foot barrel ceiling fitted with stained glass. Perfection. Every surface is a work of art. The staircase left me wishing I had packed a ball gown, just so I could dress up and glide down to the formal restaurant below.


Our room was perfectly lovely. After the 2 hour drive we collapsed into our lush king bed fitted with the softest pillows and a thick down comforter. Shane took photos of the molding to add to our “dream house” file. How incredible are theses arches? Personally, I fell in love with the drapes. I want to turn them in to play clothes “Sound of Music” style. I wouldn’t call this trip romantic per sa (with two kids sharing the room) but Shane and I are already making plans to stay here again - alone.
