Our Favorite Fall Reads

Fall is the perfect season to snuggle up with a new book. We have lots of new titles coming into McIntyre’s every day for you to choose from! 

One of my newest favorites is Sweet Caress by William Boyd. Boyd has said this is his best novel, and I believe him. Sweet Caress is the fictional story of Amory Clay, a woman photographer whose life almost blankets the 20th century.

Her accounts of taking pictures of the pre-WWII Berlin clubs, the Blackshirts marching in Moseley’s London and the pictures included throughout the book left me marveling what a fascinating life Amory has led — but then I had to put down the book and remind myself repeatedly that this was a work of fiction. I loved it!

Don’t forget to check out our upcoming author events, including our Cooks & Books luncheon with beloved author Ruth Reichl, and our Savor The South Extravaganza.

We met on April 4, 2008. I was a Junior at Elon and Luis was living in Chapel Hill. I had gotten back from studying in Argentina in December, so some friends thought it would be fun to go salsa dancing. We found out about this once a month "international night" at the restaurant called Spice Street,... Full Post >

When dining at the House a convenient space for your group to first gather is the Garden House.  This space features... Full Post >

Q&A with Blair Stanley

We were excited to catch up with Blair Stanley before his trunk show at Dovecote on Friday, October 9th through Sunday, October 10th. Here is what he shared with us about the collection! What has been your inspiration this season? I am always inspired by the fabrics that we choose. Jaquards and soft easy fabrics were of the most interest to me this season. Red, greys and blues were my favorites. Black of course is always a staple color. How has your collection evolved this season... Full Post >

Style Defined: CLASSIC

This look was styled by Sharon. We have the most beautiful featherlight cashmere turtleneck shells in the shop these days, in classic colors such as navy, black and chestnut. They pair perfectly with a simple pencil skirt, making for a great base for outerwear and accessories. Here, we’ve thrown on a lightweight jacket from Ronen Chen and layered with a matte navy beaded necklace made in Italy from Fairchild Baldwin (though this outfit looks amazing with each color of this...

What A View

The Fearrington House Inn has quite a few guests who return year after year for anniversaries, birthdays, or to just get away for the weekend. Many of those guests have been able to experience a variety of our rooms, yet they always seem to find one they like the best. Our most requested room is Room 5, a Deluxe Room with a view that in unparalleled. Two walls are completely filled with windows that are nearly floor to ceiling that fill the room with natural warm light. Since Room 5 is on... Full Post >
