Round Top hangover

Well another Round Top Antiques show has come and gone!  It was fun and productive and yes exhausting!  I am trying to get myself together to tackle computer work and catching up! and laundry! But I had to drop and show you a few things…first, a photo from a fun Country Living dinner that design besties Becki Griffin and Jenny Johnston and I went to last week.  So fun! I didn’t get great photos of the styling but it was so cute and I bet Becki will do a fun post on it in the weeks to come!  She always gets better photos because well she is a photographer and all;;

Sorry for the cheesy grainy picture and goofy frin…hubs took this with his ancient cell phone (laying on the sofa) when I ran into the house to show him!! SO proud of this project and adore the homeowners and everything about what we did so much! Holly Kuhn gave us a lot of creative freedom and trusted me on this project and also gave me a great canvas to work with and all of her antiques at my disposal..dream job!

So aside from all of this, I was also searching for antiques and rugs the past few weeks for clients in Louisiana and Oklahoma and Dallas!  I found a great rug for my Dallas client and also THE most amazing table for my new Louisiana house I am working on…Just look at this…8 feet of French cherry BEAUTY!  19th century yall!  SEATS TEN!

That’s it for now..sorry I didn’t get more beauty shots of cool stuff in tents but my iphone kept getting clogged up with photos (I haven’t found my cord to download and erase since moving)…

Have a great week y’all!  I will be back soon to show you more from the Old Glory house that Country Living did not show…so many nooks and crannies in that house that need blog time!

New Children’s Room

In honor of Spring Break and kids and grandparents, I want to show you this children’s room I did last year in The Woodlands, Texas, near Houston.


Talk about wonderful grandparents huh?! You might remember me showing a sneak peak and phone pics of this space ages ago.  Well we finally finished it and did photos!


The paint by number circus art was done by the homeowners Uncle in the 1950s! She remembers them hanging in her nursery and it was so special to be able to use them in this room.  Their colors and style were the inspiration for everything including the fabric which is called CORNWALL.


The cabinet and Lee headboards are from Laurie’s Home Furnishings in Tomball, Texas, as well as the lamps.  I love how this is a Children’s Space but only the toys and art really are childlike..the fabric could be used anywhere but it is colorful!


All of the sewing and window coverings are by Monica Hancock of Custom Creations in Houston.  She is great!  I adore how the duvets and bedskirts turned out with the red linen bands!  Notice the windows and how the drapes cover so much of the wall, the window really isn’t that big so we used extra wide panels to provide a backdrop for the twin headboards so we could place them on that wall without it looking awkward.  I was determined the beds would be on that wall so you would see them when you enter the room as a focal point.  Extra long rod and “faked” extra wide drapes made it work!


Lots of vintage touchs everywhere in this room.  This is one my favorite clients for many reasons one being she saved everything for her childhood! So lots of fun stuff for me to work with like this red suitcase!


Photos by the fab Becki Griffin’s Curious Details of course. The word and dog and elephant art is by Sugarboo of course (which you can order through me) and of the little animal cars are from Wisteria.  I love the vintage blue shelf I found at Round Top last year.


You can read more about this project on a recent feature by RestyleSource here.

And YES Round Top Antiques Spring show is starting soon or has already in some pockets.  You can get more info here about show dates etc at the Round Top Chamber site and or by looking at the Round Top category in my categories tab….also lots of great pins and links to info on Pinterest of course!

I will also continue with the Southern Living house posts soon as well!
