Paula Deen’s Cottage

IMG_2366

On Saturday, June 27th, Merry Acres Inn in Albany, Georgia unveiled their newly renovated “Rock House.” Now named Paula Deen’s Cottage, this 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom guest house features furniture from Turner’s Paula Deen Collection and was decorated by Bob Sleep from Turner’s Fine Furniture in Albany. Paula was on hand for the ribbon cutting and grand reveal. She was very pleased with the decor and said she can’t wait for guests to stay in the new cottage!

As you enter the living room in Paula Deen’s Cottage, featured is a traditional skirted loveseat with coordinating high back chairs from the Paula Deen Home Collection. Also included is a pair of small, skirted ottomans that function as extra seating.

The Paula Deen Down Home Collection is used in the bedrooms in a variety of dark, light and painted finishes. The collection captures the essence of comfortable and casual, and the natural character of poplar makes each of the pieces unique. The two bedrooms feature king beds and an upholstered swivel arm chair perfect for viewing the TV from any angle. Also in one bedroom is writing desk and chair.

In addition to the large furniture pieces, various side tables and chests from the Paula Deen Home Collection are used. Autographed restaurant menus, Paula Deen dishes and original Paula Deen watercolor artwork complete the space and add the finishing touches of Southern charm that make the cottage feel like a home away from home.

 About the Paula Deen Collection: The Paula Deen Collection is designed in collaboration with Paula Deen to bring a classic, down-to-earth style into your home. This collection offers affordable, high quality, multi-functional pieces that can be mixed and matched to fit the way your family lives. The complete Paula Deen Collection can be found locally at Turner’s Fine Furniture, which is an exclusive retailer of the Paula Deen furniture line. There are four separate collections within the Paula Deen furniture line – Home, Down Home, River House, and the brand new Dogwood collection, which is scheduled to arrive on Turner’s showroom floors by Labor Day.  All of the Paula Deen Home Collections can be found at Turner’s Fine Furniture and are available in multiple finishes including dark, light and painted pieces.
