You have heard me mention and show Leftovers Antiques a lot on my blog. They are a large antiques and home goods store near my home and near the famous Round Top Antiques Fair. They have an amazing selection of bedding, antiques, rugs, homegoods, books and more.
And they love dogs.
Well it is “Round Top Time” in Texas and I know how my readers love to not only shop, but also look inside great houses. So I have a tour today of the home of Leftovers’ Co-owner Ed Fulkerson. Michael Breddin, the other half of Leftovers Antiques, has an amazing house too that I will show you another time. Michael is a native of Brenham and has quite a long history with Texas antiques and the Round Top show. They both have great taste but different looks and collections so it will be great to see it all. I want to be clear I did not design this house or help decorate it. I am just taking you on a tour. I have been working with Leftovers on their new website and branding and I can’t to show you that SOON but for now, let’s take a look at Ed’s Victorian farmhouse. It’s so handsome even with the winter landscape, things are slowly blooming and warming up here!
The outside is painted dark gray and has a wrap around porch. I adore the brick work at the street.
Inside there is a big central hall.
Ed used lots of basic grays throughout the house on walls and floors. A great backdrop for his collection of antiques and art. His friend dear friend and wonderful artis Neltje did the abstract art.
Off of the central hall is the living room with new black leather and Ed’s quirky animal art collection. He grew up in Kansas showing cattle so these people are both sentimental and fun. I believe they said the dog statue was from a department store window?
The antique sheep is so interesting. But that dog has my heart.
How about this vintage wallpaper book I found in the drawer!
From the living room you walk directly into the dining room and wow what a room! Notice the floor changed colors. Love that.
The dining room is stunning with museum quality 18th century American and European antiques mixed with industrial lighting and leather chairs! Ed is all antiques with a dash of rock n’ roll! (I can hear him laughing and blushing at that but he is cool!)
How appropriate is the junk dealer sign??? And the post office cabinet from England used for wine storage. It fits the wall so well….meant to be!
From the dining into the square kitchen there is an island, old sink, vintage signage, old cabinets and exposed brick. All in one room. I love Ed’s use or red in the kitchen!
He set up bar in this antique cupboard, works well! They have those fab German brushes at store.
On from the kitchen there is amazing signs in hallway and darling powder and this great little man cave/tv room.
And then he made the cutest little tiny guest room out of this old sleeping porch. So sweet and serene.
And then the master bedroom complete with Dash & Albert stripe rug and yummy bed linens from the store!
These curved doors are so perfect and lead from Ed’s bedroom into his dressing and bath area.
I love the utilitarian charm and railroaded beadboard.
Darn I don’t think we got a picture of his classic clawfoot bathtub! My fave thing in his bathroom is that striped light. I am hoping Ed will hop on the blog comments and tell us the backstory on some of the antiques show in the photos. He and Michael always have the best stories about where pieces came from and their adventures bringing them home.
Fun tour huh? Well I can’t wait to tell you more about what I have been doing with Leftovers, along with my friends Kate Baird and Whitney English, we have been working on new logo and website for the store.
We plan on launching in the next day or two and I can’t wait to show you the the entire site. In the meantime, here is a peak at their new “style guide” so fun. Whitney really captured their style I think!
Thanks for looking and thanks Ed for sharing your home with my readers!
