Editor's Note: Today I am wearing J.Crew pants, Gianni shirt, and shoes by Stuart Weitzman.
Happy Friday! I am off to Atlanta to see my godchild graduate from high school. It seems like yesterday that I attended her Christening! She has grown up to be a beautiful young lady and is off to University of Tennessee. Exciting times ahead for Adair Sawyer! Today I am featuring a home in Preston Hollow in Dallas that I saw in my Luxury + Life + Briggs Freeman Sotherby's International Realty Magazine. If you have never seen this magazine you need to! Such quality! I loved the beginning of the article talking about how Eve moved into her husband's bachelor pad in the M's streets as a "late addition to the house." She described the house as "amateur-art-collector-meets-eclectic-bachelor-pad." I remember when I married my husband and he moved into our first apartment one of his friends asked how much of the furniture was going to remain after I moved in and I pointed to one small side table. I whispered the rest of it will depart but he has to have something to sit on in the mean time. Their new house in Preston Hollow the planned together and is wonderful. I am sure you will enjoy this article as much as did. Have a super weekend!
Eve and Blake Wiley described their new house in Preston Hollow a cleaned-line two-story with a Texas twist. All limestone and stucco. The Wiley's now have two children--a 3-year-old son and 6-month-old daughter. Their new designed house was built with two additions in mind. I love this room mainly featuring the art! The triptych on the wall is by Robert Rauschenberg circa 1968--how cool is that?!
When the Wiley's started to plan the furniture in the house with Gary Hatch + Alice Cottrell they did what I often tell my clients what to do and rip pictures out of magazines. This room is warm, comfortable, and family friendly. I love the pops of orange.
This tunic from the Nazca culture was likely made between 500-800 A.D. this incredible piece is in their entry.
What a beautiful warm space in the breakfast room. The sofa is covered in an outdoor fabric from Perennials so they can quote "clean the Spaghetti O's off with 409." Outdoor fabric has come a long way--you can hardly tell that it is outdoor. It is so family and man friendly!
Love the Kelly Wearstler cubist chandeliers in this dining room. The wallpaper from Frequency is so cool and adds so much interest to the room!

Self-confidence and perseverance are always the best answer!
Dinner last night was crab cakes and asparagus. So divine!
This song from Gerry Rafferty reminds me of the summer before my freshmen year at Tulane. Fun and exciting time! Just like Adair about to go to Tennessee.
