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!

Curious Details’ Art Shop

Oh y’all this is good. Really really good. Did you know my friend Becki at Curious Details has opened an art shop??  Three wonderful cow prints and more items coming soon… Check it out here.
 Becki says “Part of the inspiration for the wood panels project is that I love original art and was inspired by my work travels to the nearby Texas countryside( which I dearly love!). The project combines my passions of design, photography and road trips.”
What I love is that all of the work is original, photographed and edited by Becki. AND Printed in the USA

I thought my fave was the one below with the moon…GOODNIGHT MOO…but now I am loving the one above too!  It’s a hard decision.

The moon is definitely magical….I guess I just love them all to be honest!

She calls this one below modern moo..I can see it in a nursery..well anywhere.  They are so versatile!

She chose the wood panels to print on as an alternative to canvas or paper because they have a warm, clean and organic feel. Because they’re printed on wood they feel like an important substantial piece when they’re hung. No additional framing is needed. Look at the easy peasy sturdy hanger on back!
And they fit in perfectly with the clean modern farmhouse style we all love ( and other styles as well!!)

 The finished product has a subtle painterly feel which given the piece interesting depth.
She is having a Christmas sale too and the code is HOLLYJOLLY2016

 Like I said, more is coming.. I hear talk of a beautiful paint horse soon and some coastal subjects and trees.  We all need good art and many of you need large art for big spaces in your home..these come in various sizes and they have meaning and are made in Texas (Becki) and produced in USA….wouldn’t you rather invest in something like that for your walls over something from Pottery Barn etc… I know i sure would..i just need more walls!
Congratulations Becki on this new venture…it’s about time sister..we needed this option! SO GOOD!
