On my way back from a weekend in Austin, I stopped by the BIG antiques fair in Round Top, Texas and the surrounding towns.  I call it “Round Top,” but I end up spending most of my time in Warrenton.  ”Excess” is one of my favorite locations, and there are certainly some great deals to be had.  The above space is one of my favorites, and I came home with a few things from there.  The proprietor is not one for customer service…grrr…but his goods are really unique and “on trend.”

Lots of tortoise shells!

I loved this HUGE fixture pulled from a Palm Beach hotel – it was made entirely of lucite.  Trashy or Classy??  Me loves!

So that’s my quick recap, I was only there for a few hours.  The show is still going strong so check it out if you can!

Could there be a more fabulous console table then the little turquoise number designed by Frank Roop as seen above??  I think I could just stop there…perfection.  I won’t though… here are a few inspiration pictures for a favorite piece of furniture of mine, the console table.  I’m usually drawn to ones of the parsons nature, but they do come in all shapes and sizes!

I love, love, love, love the color combination of pink and orange!  This bedding would be soooo adorable in a young teen’s room!  I’m typically a white-bedding lover, but I could see mixing these colorful Euro-Shams with a simple coverlet and it being completely adorable.

I’ve loved armoires since I was very young.  It was my first “furniture crush,” so to speak.  I’ve always wanted to have one in my home.  Here are a few of my favorites…

If I were an outfit, I just might be this ensemble from the Milly Show.  A touch of ethnic paired with subtle glamour and a dash of pink!  I love it!

If you couldn’t just settle for “subtle glamour,’ this blingy pillow would do the trick!

Lago Vista Luxury

On a recent weekend jaunt to Lago Vista to enjoy a relaxing (yet waterless) weekend on Lake Travis (outside of Austin), our friends were dying to show us the new Waterstone lakeside condominiums.  Clad in Angelina Pedra, a Brazilian Hardwood, the exterior is Austin Contemporary at its finest.  I can see young professionals snapping up these condos for the perfect retreat with friends.  Minimal maintenance with maximum style!

Nice view!  The lake is sooooo low right now!

For all you Houstonians, this humble abode is where Mattress Mack calls home on Lake Travis.

So are you digging the Austin Contemporary style?  Would you like to call one of these condos home on the weekend?

Ahh, the Waldorf Dining Room…to me, it’s the epitome of Upper East Side Glamour.  At first I wasn’t so sure about the custom cushions for the ghost chairs, but now…I kind of love it!  I know I’ve said it over and over, but I LOVE Dining Rooms!  This Furniture Friday is dedicated to the Dining Table!
