Chic Peek with Betsy Best
I am so excited to bring you a Chic Peek tour from my place of birth, Tampa, Florida! I had the honor to speak to a garden club in Tampa at the stunning home of Betsy Best. She graciously welcomed us to film her beautiful home for The Potted Boxwood. As you will see, the home is adorned in many lovely fabrics and full of timeless collections.
Beyond the Curb with Jenkins Interiors
I am thrilled to bring you this tour that has been in the works for quite some time! The darling Leslie Jenkins of Jenkins Interiors restored a beautiful Fort Worth home using her signature elements of playful pattern and color, all while keeping the home traditionally fresh.
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. I feel so drawn to color and pretty pattern these days, more than usual. I can’t believe summer is almost here, and with it the rush of May. Thankful for y’all and hope you are inspired by the latest XO

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.

Affordable Home Finds
I recently did a Q&A with my instagram audience and many of them asked for chic looks for less. I have truly been impressed with the quality coming from Walmart. Gold bamboo picture frames, high-quality faux topiaries, blue & white ginger jars, caned bed frames, and sleek desks…all at affordable prices.
Beyond the Preservation with Meredith Ferrell
I have been speaking up on my social media platforms about the lack of preservation around Dallas, and many have commented that it is happening in other cities as well. So often, it is hard for young families to envision how you can make a historic home relevant for a modern lifestyle. I am thrilled to be able to bring you a perfect example of how a family did just that.

Chic Peek with AnnBlair Housefield
The minute you meet AnnBlair Housefield, you want to be in her orbit. She is magnetic, charming, funny, and effortlessly chic. Her home equally embodies all those qualities. Despite being a 1946 home lightly touched up over the years, this West Highland Park home in Dallas is still very relevant. AnnBlair was not afraid to use color, especially in the two darling girls’ nurseries featured. This is an ideal example of young family making fresh waves in an older home without losing the intended aesthetic.
Beyond The Curb with Susan Baldwin
Like every city, there are certain homes that you just can’t help but adore. This Dallas home I am about to share with you is one of them. On a very quiet street in the middle of University Park, lies this enchanting property that feels like it could easily be in the french provencal countryside. In the spring, wisteria falls from the front trellis patio, the boxwoods grow abundantly in terracotta pots, and the patina of the paint against the sophisticated blue shutters blends into the natural elements.
