Well it finally arrived and y’all it was special day…after months of talking and planning with the owners, Cindy & Brian Taylor, and sketching (or having this amazing woman do the sketching), sourcing, researching, planning, planning, sometimes crying…being excited..being scared, praying, working and working…it all finally came together because so many worked so hard. The Taylor’s amazing friends and family and some of my friends and of course precious Nana and my kids…all pulled together and Sunday we opened our doors! And the community has been so warm and excited for us…thank you readers and clients that drove from afar and friends and family for cheering us all on!
True Blue Home is open!
We are so blessed to have several amazing photographer friends….Natalie Lange is one of them and she came by Saturday and took this below…we weren’t even finished styling and I am amazing at what she captured..thank you Natalie!
We have lots of linen slipcovers and of course mucho blue and white!
The old brick walls of this historic building are such a beautiful backdrop for any product featured! A dream to decorate around! So glad Becki got this close up shot of the walls!
One the other walls we did shilap and I love how it turned out!
Our Visual Comfort sconce wall shows all of the different finishes (or the most popular) offered by Visual Comfort and all of our ceiling lights are also from VC, they have THE BEST hand rubbed brass finish as many of you know!
Photo By Becki Griffin of Curious Details both above and below…We had such a good turnout on Sunday afternoon..thank you everyone for coming out to help us celebrate!
Lily Taylor below checking out customers, cutest shopgirl west of the Mississippi! And also a close up of our “mission statement” and me with my girl Melisse (who is at the Red Barn this week as usual) who came out to support!
Also taken by Becki below, that is Brian, the other half of “Brian and Cindy” with his hand in the air pointing to the cypress doors..he is our expert on the cypress cornices and doors! Oh and notice those chalkboards..they have our mission statement and fun facts about the building..Cindy’s friend did them herself… I am so loving how they turned out! And the brass Eugene pendants..yum!
This is a sample of the cypress cornices we “import” from Louisiana, the Taylors’ home state!
And of course we had monogram cookies y’all!
This is Cindy Taylor and I pictured below…no we aren’t related but people always ask if we are sisters and it always makes my day! We are kindred spirits in many ways both in our taste and in our priorities in life and vision for this store..pretty exciting!
In addition to furniture and pillows and Visual Comfort lighting we have paper, lots of paper and ribbon and prints as well..I love our mix!
And dishes, British pottery from Burleigh and Emma Bridgewater! Cindy and I are both anglophiles for sure! We will have jewelry designs by My London Flat including these made with antique shoe buckles and horse bridle rosettes!
So there you go a peek at our new store…we will be showing more on our new website soon. And we will be open 10-5 tomorrow through Saturday!!! Come see us 5080 Main Street in Chappell Hill, Texas, right of Hwy 290 between Houston and Austin near Brenham!
