14 | SignatureMT Urban Affairs U GOT STYLE Text by Holly Markin • Photography by Eric Visocan As the owner of the Grand Union Hotel in Fort Benton, Cheryl Gagnon spends her days surrounded by the timeless elegance of vintage treasures. An interior designer by trade, she and her husband, Jim, spent years restoring the historic Grand Union hotel before reintroducing "The Grand Olde Lady" to the public in 1999. "I think there are a lot of parallels between the hotel and the way I like to dress," Cheryl muses. "I like clean, classic lines accentuated with unique accessories and designs that don't go out of style." She prefers neutral tones and fall colors, and has a special place in her heart for turtlenecks. "Then I'll add something special," she explains, "like a bright scarf from India or a long leather vest." She also collected a variety of authentic vintage pieces while living in Hong Kong, including jewelry made from antique hair pins and old buttons. The classic designs of Cheryl's wardrobe are a perfect match for the one-of-a-kind treasures she finds. "I like that I can change the whole look of an outfit – just by changing the accessories." Adorn with Unique Antiques MT S Cheryl Gagnon complements her classic look with dazzling accessories.
