Many of my favorite homes have something in common- they have big beautiful planters out front. There is something about the symmetry of planters flanking a front door or entryway that really sets a home a part. Today, I have rounded up some of my favorite planters with all price points, as well as some beautiful inspiration from my latest walks around Dallas, and some from Palm Beach and South Carolina as well.
You know when you continue to hear someone’s name come up over and over again? Well, that is how I finally reached out to Meredith Ferrell. She is a top real estate agent here in Dallas whose style is very on brand with my own. We recently toured her 1940’s home that she renovated with her husband and two young children. With the help of builder Isler Homes and designer Lindley Arthur, they made it classic, chicly colorful and warmly comfortable.
I just returned from a quick weekend in Aspen. It was great to see deer, snow, and mountains surrounded by a cozy fireplace and warm drinks. There is something about the mountains that puts you in a festive spirit with a calming altitude! I was also able to sneak peek a spectacular project by a renown designer. Hopefully I can share that with you all soon (it is pretty swoon worthy!).
I know I have posted many homes from Aspen in the past, but this one by David Easton is just too pretty for words. Part Scandinavian provincial and part timeless Swedish, this home has every tranquil element of a mountain retreat. Who wouldn’t want to ring in the holidays here!
I love the light wash and paneling of this area. Hues of soft blues and shades of cream are welcoming and inviting.
More soft ambience and well upholstered seating. A warm and intimately scaled room.
Hand-painted walls and a white wash dining table make for a light-filled dining room that works all year long.
Patterns compliment each other perfectly in this living room. Love the boxwood urns and glass lamps.
Another stairway. The architectural details and woodwork give this home the pleasant warmth of a mountain chalet.
