Houzz Tour | Nat and Dana Pugh

Last week I posted a little sneak peek at Dana Pugh's house. And as promised I'm back this week with the whole she-bang! I love covering homes for Houzz.com because I always meet the most creative home owners. Dana is an interior stylist who spends her days knee-deep in vibrant paint samples, bold patterns and flashy home accessories. But when she returns home from work, she needs a palate cleanser. Neutrals reign supreme at the Pugh house.

Dana and her husband, Nat, have created a serene, creamy-hued dream home using natural materials, vintage furniture and lots of unique found objects. To see the full article and see more photos of Dana's home, click HERE.

Thrifted Blanc de Chine Lamp

While browsing a thrift store yesterday with my kids, I happened upon an awesome Blanc de Chine lamp!  I was so excited I yelped aloud and ran over to it.  After a breathless explanation to my four-year-old about the history and importance of Chinoiserie style, to which I received a bored, blank stare, I hauled my score to the front counter and paid five dollars. Well, my actual total was $5.50 because the four-year-old found some vintage Hot Wheels. I'm still on cloud nine.  Here she is:



And here are some more vintage Blanc de Chine lattice style lamps for fun:

And I love the slick black lamp shade!

Green Dining Chairs

I've got little shots of green all over my house, but I'm very tempted to go all out and surround my dining table with green green green.  I've been collecting photos for a while and thought you might enjoy seeing some of what I'm thinking.  The cool thing about this color is that it doesn't matter whether you choose a vintage or contemporary style and shape, it always looks contemporary and fresh.  What do you think?

Bronze Owl Bookends

I just wanted to share my newest thrift find.  The other day, I met Brandi from Flights of Whimsy for a cup of coffee and some light shopping at Lula B's in Dallas.  I love meeting blog friends in real life!  Brandi scored a beautiful gold leaf wall hanging and I picked up these awesome bronze owl bookends.  Remember my prediction about bronze as a style trend in the coming year?  I thought I'd kick things off myself. These suckers are heavy and can double as weapons for self defense.  What do you think?
