As “Fixer Upper” fans continue to grow, we continue to get more and more requests for a “Farmhouse” or “Farmhouse Modern” style.  Our team just installed an entire “Farmhouse Modern” house Thursday (photos and details to come later) and last week we installed a farmhouse bedroom in the real ‘farm’ town of Giddings, about an hour east of Austin.

Our couple had a mix of design styles.  She likes vintage knick-knacks and farmhouse finds.  He likes modern and symmetrical.  No tchotchkes or ‘clutter’ for this guy.  When a couple has different tastes, it can be a really wise idea to hire a moderator, or in this case, interior designer.

BEFORE:

Our homeowners’ master bedroom was a wonderful size (lots of room!), but it felt unfinished.

Farmhouse bedroom before

The windows had blinds, but architecturally, they seemed lost in the corners.  And while the room had a lot of furniture, there were still several empty areas that needed to be addressed.

On the couples wish list: A desk for mom so she could work from home, a place to sit so the adults could ‘retreat’, a gallery wall for family photos and an overall clean and restful look with blues, greens and grays.

AFTER:

Our drapery fabric included the blues, greens and grays the homeowner requested, so that was our jumping off point for the total room scheme.

We focused on keeping the plan symmetrical and clean lined for him and used vintage looking prints, fabrics and wood finishes for her.

I am thrilled to say both husband and wife were happy with the end result!

A sitting area for them (the TV was moved and went above the existing wood dresser)…

The red piece was replaced by this grey bobbin desk.  We had a new seat cushion made for her grandmother’s chair and hung her mother’s print above the desk after we put it in a new frame.

A large basket can hold papers, cords, bags and any other clutter that makes its way into the room.

Simple, rustic wood shelves were hung and family photos placed in matching frames of different sizes.  This trick creates a cohesive look for a family photo wall which can quickly look messy and unruly.

This just goes to show you can combine two completely different styles and still have both parties end up happy.  It just takes some insider knowledge of interior design’s visual tricks.

And, I have to close with a quick reminder that our 10th Anniversary Sale is still on through this weekend. So hit the shop on Saturday to see what is in stock.  We just got a huge delivery today of additional pieces of our private label furniture we will be excited to share photos in coming “What’s New Wednesday” blog posts!

Shortly after our anniversary trip, Scott and I headed up to Montana for a couple of weeks to enjoy the fresh air and open land.  We stayed in Ennis, Montana, most of the time, but took some side trips to Bozeman and stayed a few days in Yellowstone at the Old Faithful Inn.

Since the park had just opened, it was not as crowded as it is in the middle of the summer (but it was a lot colder!).  We were able to see a lot of wildlife including bear (black and brown), buffalo, elk, pronghorn, wolves, eagle, etc.

We spent the night at the famous “Old Faithful Inn” which was built in 1903.

We arrived in time to take the last “Architectural Tour” of the property that day and it was really informative. If you enjoy architecture and interior design, this is not to be missed! The Inn is considered to be the largest log cabin structure in the world and was built from local stone and wood.

old faithful inn front

The craftsman details inside are really amazing.  You can see the detailed blacksmith work on the metal on the front door.

The massive clock hangs on the stone fireplace and still runs with many of the original parts.

The property has several custom-made fire screens with metal geyser detail on the front which I thought was a very creative idea.

custom fireplace cover

The massive wood structure is hard to appreciate until you are inside and can see it yourself.  The “crow’s nest” look out at the top is no longer accessible since an earthquake many years ago rocked the area and toppled the fireplace in the dining room.  There is some concern this feature is no longer structurally sound.

crows nest

If you stay in the property you can choose to sleep in the ‘old house’ rooms (in the main building).  These historic rooms have a ton of character, but no shower/toilet, so we elected to stay in the “new” rooms, which were built in the 1920’s (I think).   This photo of a ‘old house’ room shows the wood wall and a new sink on an example of what would have been the wash basin table before the rooms had running water.

And, lest you think these are in any way luxurious, let me forewarn you this is not the case!  After roughing it a couple of days we agreed we had checked this experience off the bucket list and were happy to move along to better food and more modern accommodations.

And, this wouldn’t be a travel blog post without a restaurant recommendation.  We had a great time at Open Range restaurant in Bozeman with some friends.  The food (and company!) was excellent.

Ironically, my mom already had the cookbook, so I was able to copy a few recipes before we left town.

All in all, an awesome trip with great experiences, Scott and I can’t wait to do it again!  If you happen to be headed that way, drop me a line and I can pass along additional recommendations.

The movement toward marble goes far beyond countertops. The clean and classic look of marble has trickled down to nearly every home accent. Our new arrangements pairs two classics (two of our favorites we might add): white orchids and marble.  Our white faux orchids can always freshen up a space, but our new styles combine the classics in a fresh and modern way.

marbleorchid3edit

Our first style is a ceramic bowl with veining and movement to imitate the look of Carrara marble. The double orchid and added succulents adds even more interest to the arrangement. It would look stunning in an entry, kitchen, or in a bathroom. It pairs well with transitional, modern or contemporary design.  The dimensions are 25 W x 10 D x 28 H. The orchids sell for $349.99.

Below is a close-up of the container.

Our second style features a single orchid and ceramic vase made to mimic the look of a marble. It has lovely grey, white, and taupe shades. Most times our orchids arrive in ‘jazzier’ mercury glass containers, but the simplicity of this vase is anything but dull. The natural look of the vase lends itself to look more casual and relaxed due the organic, earthy design.  The dimensions are 16 W x 7 D x 26 H. This orchid sells for $189.99.

White orchids add a brightness to a room and can add height/interest to a tabletop. Visit our store to see even more orchid styles and see which one fits the look of your home!

the Gladly back entrance

Scott & I recently celebrated our 15th Wedding Anniversary with a trip to the Phoenix area (including a side stop at Sedona).  We had a great time trying out new restaurants, touring some local communities for design ideas and spending a lot of time lounging at the pool.

One restaurant we both enjoyed was named “The Gladly”.  It had great interior design, branding and a cute outdoor patio/wall garden.  It felt very preppy and happy and the style was not what we expected for a Scottsdale bistro.

While in Scottsdale we drove through the DC Ranch Community and stopped to see a ‘model condo’ that a developer was just beginning sales for.  I snapped a few pics of the kitchen and bath for design ideas.  You will probably be able to tell pretty quickly these aren’t your typical condos.  They started in the low seven figures.

You can never go wrong with honed marble and handmade ceramic tile in my book.  And that stove hood was a show stopper.

The bathroom also had some lovely details and I thought it was both traditional and current at the same time.

Scott and I celebrated our anniversary with dinner and drinks at Lon’s at the Hermosa.  We actually spent an earlier anniversary here and it was fun to relive memories.

But, hands down, our favorite restaurant was the Elote Cafe in Sedona. We were told to show up no later than 4:30pm to stand in line in order to get a table for the evening.   Waiting in line is never what you want to do when given the choice, but the food (and view) made it worthwhile.  What a great way to end a great trip!

Elote Cafe

Sedona, AZ is a magical place you should visit if you get the chance!

I don’t know about you, but I was expecting to see a lot more adobe architecture and southwestern fabrics and rugs. It was a nice surprise to see such a variety of design styles in the area… not to mention amazing food!  Trips are always a great way to break up the routine and get inspired.  Feel free to share some of your trip plans with us in the comments or on our Facebook page!

A chic desktop can be the focal point of a stylish workplace. Your home office should be a space to motivate productivity, inspiration, or simply a relaxing place to shop online. Our new spindle desk in a lovely dove grey finish is relaxed and charming piece.

Our desk is made from solid white oak and painted in a dove grey paint. The design offers an air of nostalgia and will pair with other pieces in your home.

In our recent newsletter, we gave a brief sneak peek into our collaboration with Michelle Zuzek of Style Beacon. Now that we are in the beginning of the design stage, we wanted to give you a look into some of the fabulous things we have planned for this project.

beaconcollaboration

Michelle is a fabulous blogger who recently moved into a downtown Austin condo and came to us after falling in love with our design from FOUND . The goal is to give her a finished look with touches of glam and still be practical for her husband and puppy, Duke. Since Michelle is so stylish, our goal is to work with her to create a design concept which will reflect her personal panache!

fabric

The color scheme is navy, fuchsia with accents of black, gold, and white. There are a lot of textures and bold patterned fabrics. We also incorporated cheetah print fabric, because you can never have enough animal print when your design goal is all about ‘style’! This design project is sure to be stunning so stay tuned for more updates!
