Nov 19th Creative Class

Calling all Creatives, Decorators and Dreamers! This next class is for you!


The next Creative Class will be held Saturday, November 16th from 10 am-4 pm., in my studio space in downtown Brenham, Texas. I plan to share my journey  into the decorating business with tips and advice on how to start and expand your business, work with clients and navigate challenges and pitfalls of balancing home and business.


I AM NOT AN EXPERT on starting a small business or running a small business or even SMALL DECORATING BUSINESS.  I am an expert on my experience.  And I am willing to share what has worked, and NOT worked, for me on this 12 year journey!  This is a general class so I will not be giving technical advice on blogging or SEO or quickbooks! I will not have an answer for every question but I will have resources and tips and tricks to discuss and advice from my perspective. I plan to share my experiences and thoughts on the following topics:

  • GETTING STARTED: Education, Training and Business permits
  • TO BLOG OR NOT TO BLOG? Starting a website and how to navigate social media
  • BUILDING A PORTFOLIO. Using iphone pics or professional?
  • HOW TO CHARGE? What to do when friends only have a few questions? Hourly versus flat
  • BOOKKEEPING WAR STORIES: Quickbooks, Freshbooks, shoe boxes and more
  • CONTRACTS: Necessary?
  • PROJECT ORGANIZATION: Web-based versus notebooks etc
  • BUYING TO THE TRADE: Extending discounts and getting samples
  • AMBITION versus AUTHENTICITY Being published is great but not everything!

and more!


I can’t wait to share this space with you! It inspires me every time I step through the door.


We will spend the morning in the Studio then carpool the 2 minute drive to my home for lunch!


So lunch here and then head back to the Studio for more learning and discussion!


The November date will hopefully mean nice weather on the porch, if not we will crowd in my kitchen!

I can’t wait to reset this scene this time with fall pumpkins!


The menu will be a repeat of below along with pie of course!


Tara of Royers Pie Haven will be catering and Nib & Pixel and Bramble and Bee will also be helping with the event.  So thankful for these women! A tribe is so important to this journey and we will discuss that as well…The importance of building one another up!


Praying for gorgeous weather so I can wear a scarf and we can enjoy begin outside!


At lunch you will have time to visit with other creatives in the same boat as you…friendly faces that are also toying with the idea of putting their dreams out there finally, many already have and they will be a great resource as well.

I also hope to start a private Facebook group to follow our class so you can continue to share and support one another and hear from me ..more info on that at the class!


Hope to see you Nov 19th~

Real Homes- New England edition

I want to purpose to show more “real homes” in some future blog posts…homes I have consulted on but not done”full service expensive remodeling or decorating consults” on, just mini consults or “fluffing” here and there…sure these are very nice homes, and they may be anything from historic homes to lived in suburban or 1950s ranch style, whatever the case it does not matter.  All houses and homes have assets and things that can be tweaked and played up or down. My goal is show some non-perfect, non-Pinterest “real life” living and  photography in all of its BEAUTY and NORMALCY. And yes I know “normal” is subjective but let’s remember what real life, lived in homes look like without professional photography and perfect styling..they are still lovely, and this one is really lovely!


Indeed this one is a treat, straight from New England!

The email from the homeowner went like this

       I am interested in design, but I am looking for someone to help me finish my living room, family room, dining room, stairs, etc.  I have most of my furniture, but I need help with pillows, accessories, paint colors, lighting, etc.  I just bought my house three years ago.  It is our forever house, so I am taking my time to decorate it.  It is a sea captain’s house built in 1825, but renovated in around 1910.


Of course she had me at 1825 and Sea Captain’s home! And then she randomly showed me a photo of the kitchen (wish I had it, it was pre the lights and very lived in looking but i could see the beautiful bones beyond the backpacks and shoes…

I helped with pillow fabrics and pulling together the living room etc with a few accessories and coffee table. And a choosing new lights for kitchen. Online consults can be as big or little as needed!


You notice my favorite combo and starting points but evolved into more pattern and blue which was fine!… Ticking stripe for slipcovers, coffee table ideas and of course blue and right and neutral paint, the art is by a local artist Alison Hill, some of the other art in the room is by the family!

Online consults include basic boards but also some “crazy boards” with notes to illustrate and ideas for narrowing in on patterns and colors.  Some honest back and forth saying “you know I don’t love that KW ikat” or “I do!”


When you are working online sometimes choosing fabrics can be a bit of a puzzle but it is possible for sure especially with etsy and the willingness of showrooms and vendors to send samples! And lots of email!


Another real life aspect to these photos, which are simply phone pictures from the client, is they also show REAL LIFE transitions, meaning one picture shows her new rug in place and others show the temporary natural jute rug in place.  Because real life means sometimes you have to move the nice new red rug to the dining room until you find one for that space! It’s a good and reminds me how homes are always evolving and shifting!



And the kitchen oh the kitchen!! Once the homeowner sent me a random phone picture of the kitchen I was REALLY smitten with this home.  The kitchen addition/remodel is exquisite with the beams and floors and now with the new lights!


Look at the floor boards and beams…they did an amazing remodel..all I did was choose the lighting for island which the homeowner then ordered over phone and email with Cindy at True Blue Home.  I love working with True Blue  because they are true blue Visual Comfort retailer, unlike some of the flash sales sites that sell similar lights.   When you order through True Blue Home in Texas you get the full guarantee of Visual Comfort and more personalized customer service if there are any hiccups!  And wow that brass with the beams and look she has mixed finishes..brass lights (gilded iron to be specific) polished nickel on the kitchen hardware and bronze on the stools..and boy does it work!


Sometimes all you need is a few new pillows, a ticking stripe slipcover on an old chair, a rug or lights in kitchen…it is a process and it takes time but when it eventually starts to take shape it is so worth it.  My client’s husband is an artist so she already has some great art and of course the bones of an 1825 house doesn’t hurt!


And the big point is not to compare..her real life kitchen is amazing and her home is full of history but I bet she lacks big bathrooms and closets?! We all have different assets in our homes that we can play up..for some it is a kitchen or a porch or natural light or location.  Embrace the positive and try to downplay the things you love least.


Dreams DO come true

Sometimes GOOD things finally happen.


{Thank you to my dear friend Natalie Lacy Lange for stopping by and capturing these pics on the day I first opened!}

Not to sound ungrateful that life isn’t always perfect or that there aren’t always some small blessings each and every day, even on the worst day.

       But sometimes you get to see a dream come to fruition that has been growing in your heart for years, maybe decades and then finally, finally you get closer and closer and finally it happens.

And you get to exhale and say “God did this” through the help of others who love and encourage you to not give up and that “no you aren’t crazy.”  In a million ways. He provides.  He truly DOES see the desires of our hearts. I truly believe that.  He knows us like no other.  It isn’t always a yes answer. Sometimes He says no. or later.  But sometimes it gets to be a yes.  OH HAPPY DAY!  Thank you Lord for seeing me and making me the way you did and letting me be ME in this big wide world.

This small studio isn’t full on retail for me.  It’s a pop up shop and part of my office, my working studio where I work on homes and design which is my real job ( a dream in itself I know).. It is crazy to juggle. But to finally take it another step and to just be able to finally hang out an OPEN sign for my own little space, even if its temporary, it feels so good.  So keep dreaming you dreamers, staying true to your calling and dreams does feel pretty darn good.

It is more than just a pillow and playing shop.  It’s about following dreams and taking chances and leaning in to tough time and leaning into a heavenly Father like never before!


This building is old and dusty and often leaks but look at that old brick and original beadboard ceiling..inspires me everyday. Old and layered and full of story!


And the Eugene brass pendants are just the best, I first fell in love with them when helping design the True Blue Home store in nearby Chappell Hill and they are just great lights! They are available via True Blue Home and one of the most reasonable Visual Comfort pendant lights which makes them even better! They work in so many spots and come in two sizes.


Below is a portion of my Miss Mustard Seed Milk Paint waxes and Common Sense soaps (all natural so good!)

This cabinet is painted Miss Mustard Seed’s Farmhouse white paint color!~


Love this MMSP color on this is FLOW BLUE!


A close up below of my favorite book in the store..Anna Spiro’s Absolutelly Beautiful Things..she is so inspiring!


Come see me all this week from 10-6 pm (except when i have to run let the dog out or get kids from school..”be right back” means truly be right back..please wait;;;) and after Antiques Week we will be open Thurs, Fri and Saturdays most Instagram for any changes!  And thank you for the love and support and excitement! MEANS THE WORLD!

POP UP SHOP opening!

My very own little POP UP SHOP is opening TOMORROW in my office/studio in historic downtown BRENHAM, TEXAS at 220 East Alamo Street!!!  I am so excited!


Since I found this space a  year ago I knew it was too much space for just an office but it is such a wonderful place and I have spent the last year experimenting with what it should be…a place for classes, local art, pop up vintage or other goods??. . .. and so the experiment continues!  I plan to be open “most” Thursday/Friday/Saturdays from 10 am -6 pm.  Since this is a Pop Up Shop and not an official store you will need to check on Instagram before you make a trip but I can guarantee I will be opens these days during Texas Antique Week.  I continue to consult with and adore TRUE BLUE HOME in Chappell Hill (one town over)  this is just my own little venture in closer to our home- where we live and go to school! So don’t get confused, True Blue Home is in Chappell Hill and is open and thriving and my Pop Up & Studio are in Brenham, 15 miles a way in the downtown district, one block east of the courthouse! So now you have two places on your “must see list” when you come down Hwy 290 from Houston to Austin!  Not to mention Leftovers Antiques (which has expanded!) and all of the other wonderful shops here and Round Top.  Whether it is during Antiques time or not, there is so much to do out here in Washington County, Texas! And we all carry different things so you don’t want to miss anything!

What will I have???  Well, first of all I am excited to be an official retailer of Miss Mustard Seed Paint and I will have the paint and brushes and waxes in stock!

And books, old and new…cards, candles and of course a few rugs and random accents, and pillows we must have pillows right!


I hope you can make it this week of not, then soon!  Remember to follow me on instagram for updates!

More ‘Suburban Charm’ house

Finally more Before and Afters of this wonderful home. To see full gallery go here.


The kitchen alone is jaw-dropping.  Cabinets were removed and shiplap added to ceiling along with new range and counters that look like marble but perform like near steel!(I will share some sources in time) This home proves you can add charm to life in suburbia.  Becki Griffin of Curious Details helped me capture photos of this amazing transformation from dated cookie cutter to fresh and charming home.

These were the AFTER photos of the kitchen/dining/breakfast area . . . Complete with LG Haus Quartz countertops and Visual comfort lighting via True Blue Home.  That one big Darlana lantern is perfecto! I love the Darlana because it has no glass to keep clean and it also comes in lots of sizes and brass!


The light above the dining table is a bargain from Horchow and mixes just fine with the higher end lighting in the kitchen proper. Kitchen lighting (the lantern is the darlana and the sconce is the boston library) is by Visual Comfort via True Blue Home.

Speaking of light, adding a window to this space REALLY transformed it and let in the very best light, natural! Below you can see some of the before and during photos.

The window was added where his hand is placed to the left of fridge cabinet area if you can tell…and that window makes so much difference!  clarkeimagewindow
And the reclaimed shelves and larger than usual subway tile!

clarkekitchen1 clarkekitchen2

The Master bath is also one of my faves in this house…the tile is NOT marble..there is no real marble in this bath!


Mama said “with all of my kids I have to be able to use bleach!” So we used the marmot tile from Arizona tile and its magic along with more LG Haus on the counters and scads of white Daltile subway and tile picture railing..and an amazing Victoria + Albert tub!



What is so special is about the house is the children and family and sweet heart of hospitality of the family…since we shot these photos, they have added another babe to the pack!  Congratulations Clarke family..You are tops!



The contractor Jesus Melgar Contracting did an amazing job on this project as did Heather Chavez of Traditions Windows who did the blinds and drapes. (she can do ANYTHING with windows, cannot say enough good things about Traditions Windows!)

Thank you again to Becki Griffin for helping capture my work and the beautiful families and homes in my life!

More next week about the upcoming POP UP SHOP in my Studio!

Next Creative Class

In a little over one week, we will be gathering at my studio in Brenham for the third creative class, Saturday November 17th… this is going to be a small and intimate group and the last of my general “finding your style” and playing with pattern type classes…at least for the time being.


Becki and I have postponed our October class until spring and may move it to the Vintage Round Top to  have more room to talk about her Curious tips and Details.   I have also postponed the December natural holiday class with Keith Taylor, again Keith and I hope to do something in the spring as well.  We both got too booked with holiday decorating projects;(  BUT the November class on creative business is filling up and still ON, please note we will primarily be talking about design/decorating businesses and startups…may expand to general creative business for later classes but for now I will be sharing primarily on the the type of business I do and tricks of the trade.  So that is an update on classes at the Studio!


So again this next one will be the GENERAL talking about paint colors and favorite tips and tricks, surfaces, sharing lots of samples and talking a lot about the heart of the home and honing in on style and feel of the home!

And of course yummy food and playing with fabric!

hmiclasscollage and flowers! {via Bramble and Bee love that magical Maggie}


and treat bags!


So there you go, fall has been off to a quick start and I was ambitious thinking I could do a class every month and a POP UP in my studio as well (more about that coming soon) and keep up with my design clients but I am learning as I go still as well….

So bottom line, this is your last chance to sign up for the September General class and then the only other class this year will be the November “Business” class which is filling up soon.


If you want to sign up last minute for the class next Saturday (9/17) go here and you can use the code FRIEND for a 20% discount!

In the meantime keep checking back or watch instagram for more info on the Pop Up Shop and fun merchandise I will have in my studio this will be very small but I am excited about hosting and meeting some of you on weekends and enjoying the coming cooler weather visiting with friends!!!


Photos by Natalie Lacy Lange

Start to school + what I am reading

I know I promised to post photos of two (maybe three) fantastic homes I have been working on.  And I will.  But for some of us mamas, school only started last week and for some this week or after labor day.  This is a tender time not only for kids, but for mamas too.  I had time management anxiety and tears a good 3 out of 5  days last week. It is transition time. That time when you have mountains to climb but you aren’t in that groove yet. I forget about this required transition time and I am hard on myself and crater when its not seamless. I know we are all trying to get back in a groove, start projects, get going on things at home, etc…  But before I start sharing homes that look perfect, with unlimited budgets, none of which are true but it can seem that way some times, I want to talk about some other things going on with me. And maybe you too. And I want to encourage you to be gentle with yourself as we enter the fall. YOU ARE NOT ALONE, God sees you and He will order our days and schedules and lives. Fabric can wait, tile can wait. First take some deep breaths and sit with Him. (preaching to myself here but maybe its for you too)

So first off (in that vein of STILLNESS) I have been reading this.  And it. is. good. stuff.  I have stacks of books and honestly don’t read many of them all the way through (ok most I don’t read completely, blame it on grad school and a bad skimming habit that developed, it happens when you are a history major and they give you a million books A WEEK).  Anyway, this book is good. All the way to the end! And not only because it’s saying “slow down” and “you need margin” buzzwords that are the “it” thing right now to talk about instead of “hustle” blah blah. No, this book is different, it’s more than that. Why? Because she shares so raw and PRACTICAL about how it feels and how hard it is to actually slow down and sit in silence. To stop the madness. To start to say no to even some good things.  And what it looks like and how ugly and difficult it really is.  And why we need it. And that we are not alone. Busyness truly is killing so many of us. We must slow down. Shauna goes and digs deeper than anyone I have read on this topic. THANK YOU SHAuNA NIEQUIST! You have helped save me from myself.  It is hard, thank you for saying it takes YEARS. It is not overnight.


And this book.


Again WHY? Aren’t there tons of bloggers writing books and sharing their stories? Being real and authentic. Yep and I am sure many are good and many are so so and I have not read them all but THIS ONE . . . IT. IS. A. MUST.  At least for me and I dare say for many of you that have been through anything tough, and face it, that is ALL OF US for the most part right?!  I’ve read and admired Edie for years, met her once and seen her beauty and glow and even tasted her fudge and loved her blog! Yep drinking the Kool-aid all the way but that did not prepare me for her book.  And how again, it made me feel. NOT ALONE.  Sure Edie’s walk and struggle hasn’t been the same as mine but it’s a story of beauty from ashes and God’s faithfulness and that WE ARE NOT ALONE. It is a raw, real, encouraging word. I think that is what we are all looking for. It’s what I get from Brene Brown, and my brilliant friend Whitney English and Donald Miller. And its the message of the Gospel too. EMPATHY, encouragement, community (there is that buzzword but its the truth, its a good word).  and most important. HOPE.

         You have a story. I have a story

You want be loved.  I want to be loved. And Seen.

You are not alone.

God sees you. Others feel pain too.

Things aren’t perfect. Not at your house but not even in other homes. Even the ones that seem perfect.

It is going to be okay. Even beautiful again.

I am not a writer, or a Bible teacher or even a certified ASID designer, just a pilgrim like you trying to raise kids, and make a home, and figure out what I am doing. And it’s ugly sometimes. A lot in fact.

Most days, I want to do exactly what Hunter is doing right here. Crawl back in bed.  Or just look at the ball. Or send a text or pick up my phone before I pray or think or just sit and be.


{seriously he laid there the longest just looking at that ball}

And so, I just had to write this post before I start showing house photos with watermarks and carrying on like nothing has happened or is happening.  So much is.  With you. with me. I still struggle a lot since my divorce.  A LOT. And honestly, I struggled before. A lot. And now, the world seems crazier than ever before. I know you don’t come to my blog to know that but just….please, please be gentle with yourself sisters. I am trying to and its hard with so much noise in the world. So much to do. But we have to keep trying to SLOW IT DOWN. and Love more, hope more.

I will be back with pretty houses next time I promise. In the meantime I will be trying to . . .


Oh and why the transfer paper?  Well that was my amazon delivery last Sunday.  I immediately texted Camille to show her my bounty..Edie’s book (early? I thought it wasn’t even released yet and I was not on some special list, i just pre-ordered it on on amazon?? An amazon angel clearly carried it to me early). Also in the box, Camille’s recommended transfer paper that she blogged about THREE YEARS ago here and I just now purchased! Now I can get with the times and make my own pretty chalkboards.  Perfect chalkboard = perfect house right? Nah but I am still loving this transfer paper! I actually did this myself with the magical paper!! That is not a pin/photo above, well the graphic I traced it from is a pin likely (don’t remember for sure just grabbed it off of a pinboard) but my actual real life hand and chalk did this (along with the magical paper), counts right?

Have a good week y’all!

{Stay tuned for more on marble counter alternatives, new portfolio photos, more on recent travels, struggles and studio happenings)

Fall Creative Class Schedule + Pop Up

I was going to wait until after school starts to post the schedule (8/22 for us, so grateful to have a little more time with my boys) but I know some people are wanting to book lodging for Texas Antique Week and plan for fall so I am going to go ahead and post asap….so here you go..this is a full schedule but I am very excited looking forward to meeting lots of new friends this fall at my studio in Brenham!

We will start off with another general “finding your style, heart of the home” themed decorating class in September!


Then the next week we will do a mini Round Top “strategy breakfast” for Texas Antiques Week.


Class descriptions below include explanation in a little more detail, as will future blog posts, and there will be some special guests!creativeclassschedulefallOctober will include my good friend and prop stylist Becki Griffin of Curious Details, so excited about that..y’all she is hilarious and so so full of ideas and talent! This will be a good one for sure!


And then in November I want to invite all of you that are “piddling in decorating” or trying to get off your feet decorating as a side business or full time, or maybe you have been decorating for friends but it’s time to charge…well come and talk about your experiences and challenges and let me share my tips and tricks and some of what I have learned over the last 12 years. I certainly don’t have it all figured out and this will NOT BE A BOOKKEEPING CLASS your can bet on that ha, but I can share so much about buying to the trade, how you represent yourself legally if you are not ASID or don’t do auto cad, and lots of practical tips on fees and charging etc. I am ready to share it all because the world is a big place and we need all the decorating angels out there we can to make the world prettier, one home at a time! My bestie Camille of Camille Dickson Design will be here for this class to talk about her recent transition from French teacher to decorator and stylist and how she has made that transition and what she has learned so you will two different perspectives and lots of information in this class!


and then last but not least, THE Keith Taylor of Fayetteville, AR, is coming back to Texas to talk Christmas decorating with natural items…he is a ball, the sweetest ever and so full of talent.  His holiday home was featured in Southern Living last fall and I will be posting more about that soon as time nears. Another one not to miss!


So there you go, spots are limited, all will include meals and most will include tours of my home and of course time in my studio on the square in Brenham, Texas.  Brenham is 85 miles from both Houston Hobby and Austin airports and very easy to navigate.  If you need help with lodging we can help with that as well possibly just drop me a line but def move fast on lodging for the Sept classes held during Texas Antique Weeks/Round Top time!


Y’all this has been an exciting but scary venture to branch out into these classes but it has been so good and I can’t wait to go even deeper with the concept this fall! Please reach out with any questions and if you want to register click on this link here or go to the classes tab at top of the page. You can register for any of the classes posted on the class page at this time! Classes are non refundable but you may transfer to another person or later date if something comes up!

Coming soon! Homes & more

Checking in during this busy summer to give you a heads up what is going on at Holly Mathis Interiors. I have several newly decorated (and complete!) homes to show you..working on editing photos and we will have full posts up once school starts. Also a lot going on with future classes and pop-up shops at my Studio in Texas.

This recent shoot of my client’s home in Northwest Houston proves you can add charm to life in suburbia.  My friend and talented stylist Becki Griffin of Curious Details helped me capture photos of this amazing transformation from dated cookie cutter to fresh and charming home.


The kitchen alone is jaw-dropping.  Cabinets were removed and shiplap added to ceiling along with new range and counters that look like marble but perform like near steel!(I will share some sources in time)

The light above the dining table is a bargain from Horchow and mixes just fine with the higher end lighting in the kitchen proper. Kitchen lighting (the lantern is the darlana and the sconce is the boston library) is by Visual Comfort via True Blue Home.


Speaking of light, adding a window to this space REALLY transformed it and let in the very best light, natural! Below you can see some of the before and during photos.

Screen Shot 2016-08-04 at 1.52.55 PM Screen Shot 2016-08-04 at 1.54.27 PM Screen Shot 2016-08-04 at 1.53.07 PM Screen Shot 2016-08-04 at 1.52.45 PM

The window was added where his hand is placed to the left of fridge cabinet area if you can tell…and that window makes so much difference!

I don’t know about other moms but I have struggled this summer getting done what I need to do work-wise and also spend time and juggle schedules with my kids. I know it’s a familiar struggle but it doesn’t change the fact that it is tough when you are in it! I want to do both but it’s a challenge sometimes. And then I realized (for the millionth time, thank you Lord for reminding me again and again of your truths) when culling through these renovation pictures that GOOD THINGS TAKE TIME, renovation takes time, whether it’s a home or a life or season in growth of a small business. So I am giving myself permission just a few of these pictures with the promise of more later. The internet won’t break if I don’t get this all posted today!;

This beautiful schoolroom shown below in the same house tells me that soon my babies will be in school so I am going to cut it short today, I know you understand, and will show you more of this house later in August…it will keep!

But get ready to be inspired, very inspired . . .

The contractor Jesus Melgar Contracting did an amazing job on this project as did Heather Chavez of Traditions Windows. (she can do ANYTHING with windows, cannot say enough good things about Traditions Windows!) And the family of 7 (soon to be 8!) that live here, they are just treasures. I can’t wait to share more about them as well.


Good luck with back to school mamas and families and remember if you didn’t get all done you wanted this summer its OKAY…good things take time and often require days (seasons) of toilets setting in the middle of wrong rooms..but in time, slowly, BEAUTY WILL EMERGE! lol
