Ivey Inspiration

I have to admit I don’t see a lot in the shelter magazine that I just love these days.  Boy I sound like an old fogey but hey I will be forty  *cough cough* in like six weeks so hey maybe it is an age issue.

Everything just seems a little too bright and ikea and just lacks soul to me (and that is from someone who loves Ikea and color)…..BUT i must say this February Issue of Better Homes & Gardens has something I love (can we believe the February issue is out…i was just wrapping gifts) Anyway, WHERE have I been, I love Kathryn Ivey (and my friends and faves Milk & Honey Home are also in this issue..whoop to my Atlanta girls,  y’all rock, they have gotten so much press lately and they deserve it!)  So get this issue, it is actually worth buying.

These are all from pinterest or her website and show Ivey’s fresh but still collected and great look.

The fact its a DC row house (talk about soul and charm) as a backdrop doesn’t hurt. I love the exposed brick and no mantle. And the hex tile in the entry..OMG i love that with the number!

The hats remind me of what Becki and I did at Old Glory..and you know i love the rug! And the botanical chart with red in her kitchen..oh yes..you can see more of her kitchen on the Everygirl blog tour.


In the article it says that Ivey and her family moved out of the row house right after this trip..so sad..except they moved to PARIS!  Such a good layout..of course the styling was by Jessica Thomas and images by THE Helen Norman so it had to be good..Good job BHG y’all check it out in print..it’s even better!

Fun, new project

Recently I started a new project in nearby Burton, Texas, with Holly Kuhn of Old Glory Antiques.


Talk about a match made in heaven.  I am so excited about this project.  Holly K (I know this could get confusing with our names;) lives in Colorado and has a antique store there but comes to Texas often for Round Top.  She recently purchased an old dance hall and property in Burton to open a shop here!  Some of you may have visited the store during this spring’s show. Well after meeting briefly at the show we’ve begun working together to style and “pull together” the house where she and her comrades stay during each Round Top show.  It’s already an amazing space, a two story historic home filled with great stuff from her stores.  All I have to do is fluff and choose some new lighting, bedding etc.  I am collaborating some with Becki Griffin of Curious Details on well, the details, because that is what Becki does well. We have so much fun working together. We’ve already put together ideas for the upstairs bunk room and more!


I am calling this project the OLD GLORY TEXAS HOUSE….is OLD GLORY not one of the best names ever for an antiques and vintage store?! I love flags and American style so this is so much fun more me.

Fun stuff to play with huh? I will keep you posted as things progress. And if you live near Colorado be sure and check out the Old Glory show there coming up in June! I wish I was going..I would rather be up there in June than experiencing the climbing temps in Texas;
