Beyond the Curb Beach House with Allyson Runnels

Visiting the beach on 30A in the panhandle of Florida is always a treat, especially when we get another fabulous home tour from designer Allyson Runnels. She recently worked with a family from Nashville to design a chic modern beach home. While the focus of the home is the direct access beach views, the interiors are fresh, comfortable, perfectly textured.

Springing into Summer

Hi friends! I have a fun beach house tour to be posted Friday and the PAINT blog post is coming Monday! In the meantime, I thought I would share a few things that have caught my eye recently.

Thankful for y’all and hope you are inspired by the latest XO

Beyond the Curb with Elizabeth Cook

I have been fortunate enough to step into the homes of some very talented women who have done an excellent job of sourcing unique finds for their spaces. Many of whom are not trained designers, but have sharp senses and ways to scour for high-end finds. I think it is safe to say that this home tour with Elizabeth Cook in Columbus, Georgia will leave you inspired. Why pay full price, when you can have the Veranda look for less?!

Beyond the Curb with Anna Fiascone

While I was in Hinsdale, I was fortunate enough to tour one of the most iconic homes in this charming Chicago suburb. Anna Fiascone took me through this colorful home that was once a dairy barn in 1898 for the house next door. In 1924, it was converted into a residence.  Despite a long history, the home is still perfectly functioning for a modern family- plus, full of charm!

Friday Favorites: Serena & Lily Sale

As you can see in many of the home tours on The Potted Boxwood, designers and homeowners alike incorporate many products from Serena & Lily into the mix. Most of the products they use add a touch of natural rattan and wicker to involve texture into their spaces. Since Serena & Lily is having one of their best sales of the year, I thought I would share a roundup of my favorite products. I even included photos of the S&L products that I have seen in many of my home tours!

Beyond the Curb with Anna Fiascone and Sarah Vaile

Last week, I visited the charming Chicago suburb of Hinsdale, Illinois. Real estate agent Anna Fiascone invited me to this sweet town to show me a glimpse of her chic Midwest. The downtown had hip restaurants, a delicious bakery, and lovely boutiques all a train ride away from the city. We are fortunate enough that she toured us through two remarkable homes in Hinsdale. The one today is not to be missed.

Please Stop Tearing Down Historic Homes

1938 Fooshee & Cheek home torn down January 12, 2022.

There is a major trend happening in cities all across America, and it is very active here in the Park Cities of Dallas. I have been voicing my outrage on social media for quite some time, but now it is spiraling out of control. Historic homes are meeting the fate of wrecking balls at rapid rates. Beautifully crafted homes prior to 1930 are being wiped out for souless modern white boxes with industrial windows. There, I said it.
