Evacuation in Style!

Tuesday, September 30, 2008 | Category: Bed and Bath, Decorating, Design Inspiration

Things are finally feeling a little more normal after Hurricane Ike here in Houston. Some traffic lights are still out but electricity has {mostly} been restored to the millions of people who went without for so long. I think almost everyone in Houston knows someone who was drastically affected by Ike, but our city has really rallied together in an impressive way.

My husband and I hopped around from house to house like gypsies (we were without power for over a week) and I wanted to share the LOVELY guest bedroom we stayed in a few nights. Our friends, Katherine and Brett opened their home for over a week to friends, friends-of-friends, pets, you name it. We watched a lot of this….

Had many a laugh about my dog’s mad camouflage skills….

We did a little bit of shopping and a lot of eating!

Back to the guest bedroom… I just adore it or as Jonathan Adler would say, it’s “j’adorable!” It is a very nice color combination of grey, black, and purple. Here’s what I can remember: headboard – Archer by Crate and Barrel; lamps – Neiman Marcus Last Call; Bedding – Chambers by Williams Sonoma; two dark purple throw pillows – Crate & Barrel: prints above bed – Katherine found them in England; nightstands – thrifted, re-painted, & new knobs.

I have a sneakin’ suspicion that Hartley wants to go back to Brett and Katherine’s and roll around in the flokati.

I also think my husband would go to the zoo once a week if he could! Nothing like a nice “hurrication.”

Ah the Hurrication!
Isn’t it nice to have friends and family who open their lovely homes to us?
But I’m thinking of taking a real Hurrication the next tiem, like book Jet Blue to NYC, or a flight to Paris ha ha
