Be Still My Heart

It will not come as a surprise to you that I am mad for this house. It belongs to Kevin and Jane McGarry of Ft. Worth, Texas. Jane is an anchorwoman for NBC-DFW, Channel 5. She and Ft. Worth designer Ken Blasingame found they were sympatico and between his skill and their mutual taste,  they created a beautiful home full of texture, color and soul.

To read the entire article go here to the recent D Magazine issue.



Fabulous green doors, Spanish tiles, great lantern, sweet dog.....


Oh yes, Mexican pottery.....Gorky Gonzales (www.gorkypottery.com) and those sconces!







Oh my........this for a girl who just wanted to add a little color to my kitchen.





 More Mexican pottery - vintage , too!







Gorgeous - every detail.........






I wish I could run on over for a margarita on the back porch this afternoon!!

  15. Oh my goodness! I love your style! I'm going to subscribe to this blog immediately! I found it while looking around for photos of the interiors of Anthropologie stores. That store always makes me happy and inspires creativity. I needed a pick me up tonight...what can I say?

    By the way, quite the coincidence, but I have several relatives in Fredericksburg. Do you know Anne Strickland or Anne Sultemeir? They're my grandmother and aunt, respectively.

    I have a blog as well, and posted photos of my trip down there for Thanksgiving. You might recognize some of the people in these photos: www.thepovertydiet.wordpress.com/2009/11/28/a-very-anti-poverty-thanksgiving/. Fredericksburg is a small town!

    I'm so happy I stumbled across this blog. Thanks!

  19. While I am such a neutral girl at heart, when I see a house like this is makes me reconsider my palette. GORGEOUS. The front doors are my favorite.
