Stalking & Starbucks

Wednesday, August 19, 2009 | Category: Color, Design Bloggers, Designers, Living Rooms, Magazines

Once upon a time, there was a very talented Houston design blogger named Joni Webb.

Joni set out on her daily Starbucks run one morning and happened upon a beautiful French styled Houston home belonging to Sally Wheat.  Joni stalked this house for over a year from her car window until one day she was invited to take a peek inside.  Joni’s love for the home only continued to grow after she visited its interior.  What started as stalking, quickly turned into friendship between Joni and the Wheats.


The rest is history as they say…

And why am I telling you this story?  Sally’s house was recently featured in the August issue of Houston House and Home.  My mom went to Houston last week and after she finished stalking all of Joni’s recommended Houston haunts, she came home and brought me a surprise.  She knew how much I loved Joni’s blog and Sally’s home, so she gave me a copy of this issue and let me just tell you how amazing Sally’s house is!

My favorite photo is the one of her living room that was on the cover-


The rest of the house is just gorgeous!  But I won’t spoil it for you…Cote de Texas has the full story here.

And a big congrats to Joni, who wrote its cover story!  The writing was excellent and the story is more than entertaining.

Joni’s original blog post, Stalking the Wheats, has proved to be one of the most popular stories on her blog.  People have fallen in love with the Wheat’s house and Sally’s unique style.

Can’t wait to see photos of the next time Sally decides to rearrange her furniture.  Congrats to the both of you!!

I thoroughly enjoyed the article. However, I had a little shiver of distaste over “the both of you”–that’s like nails scratching a blackboard.
