Recently while in San Antonio, my sis-in-law Sarah had us over for a small lunch. I thought you’d love to see the details of her home.
Sarah’s always gracious and welcoming from the moment you are at the front door. See the small chalkboard with our names on the door:
I could easily take photos of their entire “magazine worthy” 3 story amazing house, but with only a short visit, I just snapped a few photos to share.
The living room is refined yet casual….
Sarah knew zebra was cool before it was everywhere in the design world.
my favorite table detail.
Sarah recently purchased the runner on a Uganda missionary trip. She’s planning on turning it into a valance later.
Old style tags were used for place cards on top of plaid goody boxes.
A painted gold tree holds goody boxes for those not able to join the lunch:
Sarah is thinking about going into the monogram business one day, and owns the rights to this antique, special Arabesque monogram on her dining chair:
Love the coordinating chair with the daisy detail on the nailheads,
… her collection of antique blue and white china,
…the simplicity of live ferns in tall vases.
Sarah’s kitchen is the heart of the home. We normally eat in the kitchen at a large farmhouse table. And I should’ve taken more pics of this fab kitchen, but I’ll remember next time.
The backsplash of her stove is an antique painting, isn’t it gorgeous??
Her double refrigerator/freezer doors are my fave…..they’re antique Italian scenes painted on wood, retrofitted to each door:
Before leaving, Sarah had to share her latest gadget, the Nespresso machine. I’m telling you this needs to be on your Christmas list. The Nespresso machine made the best cup of Espresso cup & it’s super EZ!!
Looks appropos for a Fall day , don’t you agree?
