Favorite Watering Holes, and Food in Lake Placid, NY.

Since renovating a 100 year old house in the town of Lake Placid, we have come to really know this area!
There is something so comfortable and warm about LP! Experience instant stress decompression as you enter Keene off of 86, filled with mountains and birch trees, smells of pine filling the air... and knowledge of the fact that we're almost there!  Once in town, almost everything is within walking distance... but there are a couple of places worth getting in the car for!!  They include "The Lake Placid Lodge" and "The Whiteface Lodge".  Here's a glimpse of both places and their beautiful and unique andirondack decor.   And if you every make it up this way... put them down as a must visit!!

 House Beautiful Foyer- Antique gold chandelier in foyer , and silver lighting in dining room.

Gilded mirrors with nickel fixtures great in the House Beautiful bath.

Mixed brass and silver - Living room: Stephenson/Patyk for Town & Country Interiors LLC

Love polished nickel kitchens, but brass is a bit refreshing!

"SiIver and Gold"... "Silver and Gold"

Well, looking around at all the wonderful decorations this christmas has us thinking of "What else, but Silver & Gold"!! How great they look mixed.. and how its making its way back into Decor.
Yes, I dare say,"Brass is back"!  Dont cringe.. we are not talking about shiny fake brass of the 80's!
We are talking traditional classic aged and true brass.  Yes, brass can be mixed with the ever popular polished nickel.. and we have some beautiful posts to prove it!!
