Cottage Blue Bed & Breakfast

Cottage Blue Bed & Breakfast, formerly known as True Blue Cottage, is now available for overnight guests during Round Top/Texas Antiques Week, the summer and beyond.  The cottage sleeps up to 4, has a full kitchen and dining as well as charming screen porch area.  You can book the cottage here


As many of you know, I worked with Cindy & Brian Taylor to remodel and decorate True Blue Cottage in 2015 while we were also working on their retail venture, True Blue Home. Many (most in fact) of the furnishings for the TBH renovation are still in the cottage including white slipcovers, English Farmhouse furniture, custom drapes and beautiful lighting.  True Blue Home has recently moved from downtown Chappell Hill to a larger space on nearby Hwy 290… more soon on their expansion into a new space that includes a bakery and cafe and more showroom space!  IT IS AMAZING truly. Follow them on facebook and watch for their new website and online store!


It has been an honor to be a part of this journey for True Blue Home and the cottage.  When Christine and her mom (the new owners) stepped in my Studio last fall and said “we might be buying the cottage,” I knew the joy and beauty of the space would be maintained.  I am thrilled to be a part of the next chapter…and now you can some STAY in the cottage!~ Are there still a few spots available for Round Top weekend as of now…

God bless you Cottage Blue, your owners, and all who walk through your doors!

Catching up . . .

So many fun things going on, hard to know where to start . . .

Including work on this home above near Magnolia, Texas.  I have several new builds going on and its very exciting to work on these homes!  If you follow me on Instagram you saw some wallpaper photos this week…that is at this brick sidewalk home..hopefully the owners will let me show you more as it nears completion!  The team at Heartwood Custom Homes is doing an amazing job. I love that they don’t have a flashy showroom but they have been building homes in Texas for generations.  This is what you want in a builder y’all!

Texas Antique Week (originally known as Round Top Antiques Fair) is also ‘coming like a freight train’ and will be here soon!  And good news, this year Easter is late so no conflict with the spring show.  You can see exact dates for each show here at this site!

I know one of the things on my wish list this show is a new old pine hutch or welsh dresser as some call it…mom and I have combined furniture and sold some things and this is at the top of the list for our kitchen area!  I am trying to prepare her for the sticker shock.

Hopefully I can find one that is thin but its not likely..we will see, the hunt is on~

Another fun project I am working on is major remodel in Bellville, Texas.  Its a craftsman farmhouse and involves a lot of complicating factors but it is all going to be worth it..studying these old images and details have been crucial~ 


The owner is trying to decide between a Wolf range and french range….do any of you have a LaCanche or La Cornue??  What do you love or not love about it?? 

Back to Texas Antique Week, I am toying with the idea of offering a shopping adventure/mini class probably at the Marburger show, unless I can find a bus lol (don’t laugh I might).  Stay tuned if you are interested in that..the tentative dates are 3/24 and 3/31 both on Fridays!

And last but not least I hope to share more of our new home soon.  We have officially been here two months and almost (maybe) unpacked.  Some things you never unpack right?? lol.  We are still putting things away and hanging things on wall…it takes TIME for sure but I am trying to practice what I preach and not rush or get flustered (which is sooo hard..this is very good for me to go through, builds empathy for my clients)..A TRUE HOME TAKES TIME..it can’t happen in a one day install. SO thank you for being patient!

Have a happy weekend!
