Good Read: TRADhome

TRADhome is one of my very favorite digital reads, and they just unveiled their latest issue which is packed with gorgeous interiors.

This pretty powder bath designed by Caitlin Wilson especially caught by eye. It's probably the hand-painted de Gournay wallpaper, which I'm a real sucker for. The brass-legged vanity is from Stone Forest, sconces are Visual Comfort, and pretty burl mirror is made by Mirror Image Home.

Elizabeth Eakins Textiles

Elizabeth Eakins has some of the prettiest rugs in the business, and I'm so excited that she will soon be represented by Dallas' David Sutherland showroom. I can hardly wait to show the line of beautiful handwoven textiles to my clients! 

She also creates super pretty handwoven and handprinted fabrics. They're inspired by historic designs, but modern at the same time - perfect for a transitional home.

Around Town - Calcite Vessels

I'm saving my pennies for one of these beautiful organic vessels designed by Brenda Houston

Crafted naturally of calcite and onyx, they really stand alone as works of art. The minerals are mined in a private quarry, and then the pieces are finished by hand. No two are exactly alike, and sizes range from five to 52 inches. 

The smaller versions can be perched atop a coffee table book, and the larger bowls (which are the real showstoppers in my opinion) are right at home in the center of a dining room table - which is exactly where I will put my own (someday)!

Great Throw!

I'm crazy about my new super-soft herringbone throw from Lands Downunder. It's a cashmere impostor that's actually a durable blend of cotton and alpaca - so it pops right in the washing machine! Mary Cate's in Dallas has a pile by the register. Aren't the colors amazing?

It was a hard to choose but I went with this coral shade.

Now off to curl up for a marathon of "Orange is the New Black" - our current summer obsession!
