Question! I want to install laminate flooring but have knotty pine ceilings in the lounges and dining room, should the floor be laid in the same direction as the ceiling planks or wood it look odd if they run differently?

I know this isn't chairs, but it's in my dining room where I have chairs. It's my newest plate wall. I had an annoyingly boring wall and didn't know what to here's what happened last weekend. I painted the frame of my picture and that made all the difference. I used plate hangers that I found on Amazon and the rest is history. I was totally inspired by the plate wall created by April at @barnhomeliving You can read all about it on my latest blog.
I would love to know if you have plate walls too? Or would you consider doing one yourself?⠀⠀

How in the world is it the end of August? If I didn't live in Texas, that would mean the end of summer, but summer continues into October down here! Summer makes me think of this set of chairs...all bright and cheery. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I've got some fun things planned this week and I'll be sharing some hints in my stories tomorrow, so stay tuned!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

These aren't quite done, needs the trim, but you get the idea of the color explosion that has happened in my studio this week. I usually do these Mexican textiles on black or blue painted chairs, but now I've got a set of gold! Aren't these great? I'll be getting more pics to show you soon!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 07/01/2021

Happy Days Farm

Happy Sunday! Sharing a festive Christmas from the beach cottage this morning. I used things I had from last year, just changing it up a bit. Wish we were there this weekend. Hope you have a wonderful day.

Chair Whimsy

Two years ago, I traveled along with my assistant Sydney to Marfa, Texas and the Prada store way out in the middle of no where! Seriously...there's nothing there! We hauled all these chairs in the back of the car and set them up for a photoshoot. We met some new friends that day who helped us move the chairs around, pose for the chairs, and asked a lot of questions. It was definitely a day to remember. Sometimes you just need to do something crazy like drive 8 hours each way in one 24 hour period of time! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

It's beginning to look a bit like Christmas everywhere now! Remember this image from last year? Well, if you were one of the lucky ones to get Cottages & Bungalows magazine last month, then you will see tons of pictures from my friend Sara's house with my chairs in it! Here is one of the shots I took on that day. It was so much fun...and it was exhausting too! 🙂

Sometimes you just need to create what I call a cowboy chair! I rarely get to design for men, but when I do this is what you’ll see! What’s your favorite feature, mine is the aged gold leaf.

This little fun bunch has kept me quite busy but they are ready for their new home! Can you even imagine how much fun it was to design this set? It was so much fun. Every top coordinates with it's textured seat..and they are all different. We have yellow, chartreuse, blue, green, pink, purple, and turquoise. For some, I used remnants of leftover fabrics that are no longer in stock. And the tops are a variety of florals, embroideries, and suzani. It makes me happy!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

In the midst of chaos, there is beauty. This was my view yesterday as I worked on a set of chairs for a client. Sometimes I look up and it takes my breath away...this was one of those experiences. Take time to notice the beauty around will bring you joy (I'm talking to myself! 😉)⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

How do you decide when you can't pick a favorite? You pick ALL of your favorites and find a way to make them work together! My latest blog explains how to make a set like this work together even when every chair has different fabrics.
How would you mix a set like this?
