In honor of my home state which is suffering right now, this post is a tribute to Texas talent – designers who have made the state more beautiful and influenced others.
The state is full of Texas-sized talent.
Cathy Kincaid is a master at designing luxurious comfortable bedrooms. The perfect place to weather the deep freeze last week for those lucky enough to inhabit a Kincaid-designed home.
Eleanor Cummings is a Texas talent from Houston creating serene interiors with a European feel.
Pam Pierce’s work has evolved a bit in the last decade or so. She began mixing in more contemporary objects for unexpected touches. Pam Pierce is the founder of Milieu magazine enlightening us all to beauty around the world.
Michelle Nussbaumer at Round Top.
The entrance to a no-doubt amazing ranch house up the road. Near Round Top.
A peak at Round Top treasures.
Texans are generous people.
Cynthia gives back to her community constantly. In light of the current crisis, she is giving away her cool cord necklaces for only $1 when you make a donation to the San Antonio Food Bank. See here for details.
Warehouses are the new house.
A few snaps above of the not yet completed warehouse/home Michelle Nussbaumer is building in the Dallas Design District. It is near her shop Ceylon & Cie.
Long before Michelle, down in San Antonio, Gwynn Griffith turned an 1883 warehouse into her home. It had the high ceilings and large sized rooms that she craved. I was amazed by the luxurious Fortuny and antiques within when I first saw this feature in Southern Accents (I think).
I wasn’t the only one taken with this home. An Orlando designer recreated this brown and green marble bathroom in her Winter Park home.
Texans are a resourceful optimistic lot that will come back even better than before. I can’t wait to see what they do next.
Casa V can bring the spirit of Texas to your home wherever it is.
