house in the 'hood

Hope y'all are having a great week so far.
I know I am.
We went to Round Top yesterday.
It started off shaky with rain and a dead battery
but only got better as the day went on.
Hope to post a picture filled tale of how the day went down.
Until then hope you enjoy a little peek into
this house in our 'hood that sold earlier this spring...
If you needed a definition of an open concept living space
this house would be it
with views into the kitchen, dining, and living areas from any one spot...
It seems like a great place to entertain doesn't it?
This reminds me that I need to de-clutter edit my book shelves.
I like the way there's just enough on the shelves...not too little or too much.
Plus I love the color.
Adding that to my to-do list too.
After I finish the office.
And the laundry room.
Oh yes and the boys room update.
One day but not soon
 I will paint the bookshelves in our family room.
Until then I'll be pinning this as a reminder.
Who is else is loving the random quirkiness of the art choices in the room?
I love a good theme but I like random too.
And apparently I like green apples and alligators.

If I had to guess I'd say the door you see above
is the powder room...
I like the color scheme they used for the walls and trim,
same same but different.
Yes...let's do that too one day.
Who else keeps a running tab of unending home projects?
I doubt I'm the only procrastinator dreamer here ;)


The kitchen crams a lot in without feeling too crowded...
the desk area to the left and informal bar area.
It feels like a gathering place doesn't it?

I like how they mixed the slate countertops with the butcher block top on the island.

Love the lantern in the entry way...

more lighting love in the man cave/family room at the top of the stairs...

The master bedroom is quite lovely and serene.
Who wouldn't love a little sitting room like this...
Love the huge shower in the master bath...

 The secondary bedrooms are simple but stylish...

The older I get the more the mantra "less is more" speaks to me...


 although I do love to expect the unexpected as well...
like how they used this secondary bedroom as a home office.
Loving the world map triptych...wonder if that was a DIY.



 Back downstairs is an awesome bar area.
Every thing is bigger in Texas including our wine fridges...
I wish I could find out where these owners moved.
These are my people, my tribe.
I like they way they roll.
I hope they have a pool area in their new house like this...

You know this is where I would be found most days.
Especially with a glass of wine in hand.

  1. Another great house. I love the art work. Can't wait to see your post on Round Top. Have a great week!

  2. Cannot wait to hear about Round Top!! Might have to schedule that for next year. Hated to miss out.

  3. Beautiful home! I am heading to Scott Antique Show in Atlanta next year and even though I'm in Texas, I've never been to Round Top. Need to go for sure!
