Mount Vernon Part One (of Many)

This home in Washington County is so special.  The homeowners and I (and their architect and builder and many wonderful craftsmen) have been working for some time to see this beauty finally emerge and boy is it emerging to be everything we hoped!

Every site visit I am so excited to see it come to life and near completion!

 

Is there anything better than the smell of sawdust and fresh paint and the sound of saws and hammers!  Not to me!  

These colors are soft but fresh and feel so organic and fitting to their landscape, especially with the wildflowers still blooming just outside!

Most of the house is painted BM Pale Oak, SW Eider White with dark accents of SW Dorian Gray and SW Classic French Gray.  And SW Peppercorn in one very special room!  We may be discussing a drinking game with the aim of naming these colors!  The top color is custom just for the lady of the house!

I like to think Mr A. Hayes Town himself would approve of this color palette, I am so pleased with how they play of one another and the natural light. Not all my doing, the homeowners did a lot of samples and comparing colors, total team effort to get to this point.  Houses like this don’t just happen! I couldn’t help but think of this famous image of him today when I saw this Duxbury and Classic French Gray paint on the walls!

More to come including some wonderful exterior photos and brick flooring and grasscloth.  Also I am hoping the homeowners will let me share some of the tips and tricks they learned in researching some historic Natchez, Mississippi, paint colors!  They did their homework. It’s been such a joy to be a part..amazing team of architectural design, builder, craftsmen and more.  Including Fischer Tile of Brenham Texas and JM Floors. I can’t wait to see the lighting via True Blue Home installed and marble via BRENHAM AREA MARBLE in place.

Modern Farmhouse Feature

Thank you Modern Farmhouse magazine for this recent feature of my Texas cottage. 

This home was featured last year in Country Living but Modern Farmhouse, a new magazine from the editors of COUNTRY HOME, revisited it with a new twist.  Thank you to Buff Strickland for the amazing photos and Becki Griffin for styling as usual.  And to the homeowners AA & Tina Hodde for all they have done for my family and the restoration of this property. 

I feel more and more at home in our new hometown and I am so grateful for God’s hand and His people on this journey! 

I love the article title I must admit and I love how they worked in my love for draperies and how i push them on my client ha! and how i do exactly what my mother tells me!

The last line of the article is pure gold..Happy Mother’s Day nana..you are always right..well almost always;;;

Thank you Aubrey and Mitchell Davis for helping with the lovely door and Robinson Landcare for help with the yard..y’all are the best!  Window blinds are by selectblinds.com   

Bodhi (like a grass) in the top down bottom up style shade (privacy lined is private enough unless you want black out) is one of my faves, the exact color in this article in on backorder but very similar is the Tortiouse coral!

And Hunter Buns..you are a star!
