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.

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.

Chic Looks for Less

I often get asked about timeless and affordable furniture for the home. If we know anything about furniture, the word affordable is hard to apply with most things that are of good taste. It is very clear to me that Walmart Home is changing that they way we shop for furniture. I have selected several pieces of furniture that I would gladly put in any room in my house. Tufted chairs, high gloss benches, gold and glass consoles, and pretty textured tables.

Serena & Lily Summer Favorites

 

We are in the full swing of summer, my favorite time of the year and the best time to entertain. When I think about a lot of my new favorite items for the home, I can’t help but recognize that they are from Serena & Lily. This summer especially, I am constantly using my Serena & Lily Cayman Vessel to either hold my fresh summer hydrangeas, or to light a pretty candle in inside of it for an ambient tabletop centerpiece.

Patina Homes

Occasionally a new coffee table book hits the market and it is beautiful to look at for a day…and then you never open it again. When you have a true stand-out and staple book, you find yourself referring to it over and over again. The new book Patina Homes by Steve and Brooke Giannetti most certainly belongs in the stand-out category. While their beautiful California home is noteworthy for it’s light-filled architecture, effortlessly inviting decor, and lushly sophisticated gardens, the Gianetti’s also focus on architecture and interiors for clients as well.
