As I started to write this post, I was going to preface it with the fact this is not my usual content. It is not about architecture, interiors, landscape, or design. However, I am currently typing this laughing at the paradox because that exactly what this post is about.
I’ll be honest, when I think of Etsy the first thing that comes to mind is monogrammed cups, bachelorette party swag, and knick-knacks that I do not need. It wasn’t until I did a Chic Peek Tour of Daley Bennett’s house that I completely changed my mindset. I now know I can buy everything from beautiful turkish rugs and chinoiserie panels, to luxe brass hardware and custom roman shades.
I realize it has been some time since I shared a selection of timeless Dallas homes with you all. Many of you do not follow me on instagram, and prefer to come here. So today, this post is for you! Here is a collection of some of the gorgeous facades I have captured in Dallas over the past year. It truly is #ChicInDallas.
One of the main places I shop is having a sale, so I definitely feel I need to share my favorites with you. From beautiful floral dresses and classic tops, to white jeans and chic summer sandals, there is a lot to choose from.
I recently received a copy of a truly lovely new book titled Visions Home by Andrew Cogar and Historical Concepts. With complete honesty, the homes featured in this book are some of the most beautiful I have seen. They are dripping with character, perfectly scaled, and lushly landscaped. Upon reading it, I was immediately infused with inspiration. This book will truly transport you to another level of timelessly chic.
I was emailing with designer Lisa Hilderbrand recently and she mentioned how she read the “About” section on my website for the first time. What caught her attention was the mention of my love of Southern Accents magazine. Do you remember it? Some kids are addicted to video games, I was addicted to Southern Accents.
There are so many wonderfully colorful, beautifully patterned, and gloriously refreshing finds out right now. I wonder maybe if all the downtime of the pandemic brought innovative inspiration to all the designers of clothing, toys, and home decor. There are seasons of drought when it comes to style, thankfully not this year. I am happy to share my favorite finds for a blossoming Easter table, pretty baskets, and cute clothes for the baby chick to the fully fledged.
I have been noticing a wonderfully chic trend in lighting recently. Again, I hesitate using the word trend. However, beautiful patterned lampshades were once reserved for those who could only afford custom design- not anymore! It is really something how a beautiful lampshade can immediately elevate a room. You can easily take a plain white or acrylic lamp base and add a punch of pattern and color. I have rounded up some of my favorite rooms incorporating patterned lampshades, as well as my personal picks that can chicly light up your living room.
With spring break and the thrill of summer approaching, we have gathered up some of our favorite finds for warmer weather. From cute suits to fabulous dresses, to everyday sandals and white jeans, these are the staples that we love!
