There is going to be a wide variety of unique items, but my inspiration for the show was tea towels and tabletop ideas. I had a variety of tea towels made and some exclusively designed for the spring show. Along with the tea towels, I had coordinating placemats and napkins made. Here is a sneak peak of a few tea towels that were hand stamped for the show...

Every house needs a central focal point. A front door would be nice. But we can't see the front door. So, I am going to attempt to have the middle wall of mystery torn down. Behind it is a sweet little courtyard with much potential- thus the focal point for this home.
Just like the eyes are the windows to one's soul, in the same way- windows are the windows to a home's heart. Wow, that sounded like a bad card. Anyways, this home definitley qualifies as lifeless because of the lack of windows. I am going to add windows to the front of this house and replace all the metal windows throughout so it can bring in some sunshine.
Paint and Landscape- Along with the new windows, I want a new color for this house. The Red, White, and Blue is a little too themey for me. I am thinking of painting the house a soft, creamy white with a stark white trim and black accents (Shutters, Front door, Sconces, and Iron Work). New roof for sure and new landscape that has heighth and a lot of movement.
On the interior, it has nice arched entries and wooden beams on the ceiling. I am normally not a saltillo tile girl, but the design theme I am going to play with is a traditional home with a spanish style twist. Tasty.
All the bathrooms are going to have a very clean spa-like look. The bedrooms will be simple and the living areas will be wide open and truly livable.
The kitchen will have a warm, stylish feel. I like to play with patterns and textures in the kitchen. The saltillo tile will be layed straight on the floor and diagnol or brick patterned on the backsplash. Chunky painted cabinets with substantial oil rubbed bronze knobs.
Are you starting to feel it? I am...

Laura and I had such a great time doing 5 months of Magnolia Weekend. We had such a great turnout every month and enjoyed every minute of it! We both have been praying about this new year and what we should do with the weekend shows and what paths to take in our own personal lives. For now, I am enjoying staying home with my new baby and 3 other wonderful children. I feel the need to slow down and really enjoy these little beings God has put before me. I am still working with Chip and our home business Magnolia Homes doing design. I will always be in the market of doing magnolia shows, but for now- the once a month thing is a little too much to take on. However, I will be sending out posts regularly on fresh ideas for your home and updates on any upcoming events.
Laura is still praying about several options she has in front of her... we will keep you posted. I know whatever she does will be exciting and creative! She is talented and ready for new and exciting ventures!
