Style Defined: AVANT GARDE

This look was styled by Emma. Taking on avant garde fashion is not for the faint of heart. We like to take a page from our international friends, those from Paris or Tokyo or Sydney, and just go for it. Fashion is supposed to be fun. It’s supposed to be experimental and exciting. We love to play with proportions and textures and colors and this look is no different. We’ve taken a pair of...

Sustainable, Organic & Biodynamic Wine

We previously announced the beginning of our transition to include more organic and local wines on our wine by the glass menu at The Fearrington House. We live in a very exciting time for wine, and one fortunately where some of the best producers are using organic or biodynamic methods. There are three main types of eco-friendly viticulture: Sustainable, Organic, and...

Style Defined: CHIC

This look was styled by Cassie. Chic is always defined by restraint. Class, style, a balance of timeless elegance and not falling into trend traps, tempting as they may be. That's why we love this look; a beautiful leopard-print blouse could get very loud, very quickly, but not so with this outfit. Lareida makes the perfect blouse and we've layered it with a simple white tank and perfect...

Lauren & Peter

Lauren and Peter tied the knot on September 5, 2015. These newlyweds said their 'I dos' in the Garden Terrace and danced the night away in the Fearrington Barn. How did you and your partner meet? In Fall 2010, Pete was a third-year at the University of St Andrews in Scotland, and I had eagerly moved overseas for a one-year Masters program at the same school. As a part time job, Pete was...

Style Defined: BOHEMIAN CHIC

This look was styled by Sharon. We love the juxtaposition of this look, bringing 70’s-style characteristics such as a wide-brimmed hat and a fuzzy vest and 90’s-style flannel shirt to create a thoroughly modern look with great contemporary touches: the handcrafted Italian hardware on the handbag, the knit back of the vest in such a trendy olive tone, the textural funk of the...

The Art of Layering

Now is the time of year when layering becomes extra important, but there's definitely an art to it. If you do it wrong, it looks bulky and uncomfortable but when you do it right, it looks chic and warm. It's always great to layer a simple tank under anything you wear. We love the thin ones from AMB as well as Judy P's polished silhouettes. A silk tee from TY-LR also gets the job done. On top...

Style Defined: CLASSIC

This look was styled by Cassie. Sometimes, simplicity is key. With this look, we start with a simple base: black cashmere turtleneck from Kinross, simple leggings from Equestrian Designs, suede kitten heel from Bettye Muller. But there’s a twist! The turtleneck is topped with a beautiful charcoal and pink scarf, the leggings have the faintest foil design printed on them, the suede heel...
