Design Love

I've spent countless hours looking at beautiful homes lately as we prepare to move. Our new house is a little different from what we are used to and will have a little more space to play with.

Just by lucky accident, I ran across Jeanette Van Wicklen's design blog. Her current home is for sale and it is breath taking in true Texas style! Take a look...



This amazing home is just a block from Lake Travis. 
Imagine living here and being able to go take a dip or eat at one of the nearby restaurants. Wow! My Texas friends will understand all of this.





I love Jeanette's style.  Its traditional but with a youthful current look.
This is what I want in my new house.


Isn't this little sitting room perfect?
I love the way she used the old china cabinet to display beautiful objects. Love the fabric on those drapes - that's the modern edge I'm liking little touches of.


This kitchen is dreamy to me.
 Love the old signs, the granite, and the clever way she has extended the eating area at the island.


Love, Love, Love

That darling Coffee Shop sign is from Ballard Designs long ago. 
Wish I wouldn't have missed out on that.



My husband would be in heaven if his office looked like this.  We do have a deer head around here somewhere (hidden).

I spy cowboy boots.  When we move back, I think I'll get some. :)

Now don't leave, there's more!


This guest room is beautiful and welcoming. Don't you agree?

Last but not least, look at the backyard area.

Just imagine having a margarita out under the live oaks!!

Be sure to visit Jeanette and her beautiful home.

If you are looking for a new place, this just might be the one for you.
