Don't you just love a good road trip?
This past weekend we drove up to New Hampshire to visit our son at school. I was looking forward to seeing him and staying at the newly refurbished Hanover Inn in Hanover, NH. The hotel recently underwent an extensive renovation-the tired faux Early American decor has been replaced with an assortment of classically elegant, yet comfortable seating. Deep green velvet sofas and buttery leather chairs play beautifully against the Dartmouth green bead board walls. The statement piece of the new lobby is a majestic stone table fashioned from New Hampshire granite. The thick slab is perched on blocks of natural wood-it's a beautiful, nature inspired piece that showcases the state's famous stone. To lighten the look, a collection of local designer, Simon Pearce's table lamps give a soft, luminous aura to the tablescape. The new lobby is fresh and modern, incorporating New Hamphire's best natural resources with great design.
