Editor's Note: Today I am wearing a vintage top, Ann Taylor bell bottom wool pants, and Vince Camuto shoes.
Today's feature is about materials. I love when I get to do a project from beginning to end and chose the different elements that go into a home. I love to score magazines and books for different materials--doors, windows, bookcases, sinks, baths, etc, etc. It is all the different materials go into a home that make the backdrop for my favorite part which is furniture and draperies. I love this spread of articles that Luxe Magazine did in this January issue. Happy Thursday! We are turning the corner to the weekend. Only two more days for Kay to be by herself until Michelle returns on Monday. I hope she is having a fabulous time skiing and that the snow is perfect!
The top of this Dining Room table is a solid slabs. I have a request for a similar dining table for a client so this really peeked my interest. The article says it took 5 days to install the slabs. WOW! I am sure they were sweating some bullets during those 5 days! I love the simple but elegant set of 4 chandeliers above the table.
This entry hall have two of my favorite men architect Jack Schutts and Joseph Minton. Jack Schutts daughter Mary Lou was president of Pi Phi of Tulane when I was a freshmen and she was a senior. These custom steel framed hopp's windows and doors are just stunning!
What a beautiful entry and what an incredible front door! The slate tiles on the wall extend from the outside to the inside. What a beautiful detail!
What a beautiful long hallway filled with antiques and incredible lanterns on the wall! Just stunning!
The staircase in this entry hall was engineered to be free standing and executed by Arcways. Even though this staircase is simply beautiful my favorite element of this room is the front door. How stunning is that?!
Another incredible and unique staircase in this mid-century home in Austin. Very unique!
I love the front of this Dallas home with these beautiful stone headers. So clean and lovely!
What an incredible wood scene sculpture in this Austin home. A true piece of art in itself!
