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.

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!

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.

Beyond the Curb: Allyson Runnels Interiors

Earlier this summer, I went on a lovely trip to Watercolor on 30A in Florida’s panhandle. While walking through the beautiful neighborhoods, I came across several homes that caught my eye. After sharing the homes with my followers on instagram stories, I was able to connect with the talented designer behind these stunning coastal homes. Allyson Runnels designs homes on 30A and throughout the United States. From layers of fabric to terrifically textured walls, her interiors are both refreshing and warm.
