JVW HOME – First Event Party

Finally getting around to sharing some pics of our first Open House Event, from May 4th.  
JVW HOME hosted the event along with Tara Camp of Scout Lighting and Design Goods
and  Lea & Stephen Veras of Direct Natural Stones.  We all share a beautiful property out in Spicewood, Texas.  Where is Spicewood?  We’re outside of Austin, in the Lake Travis area, close to Lakeway, Bee Cave and Marble Falls.   Direct Natural Stones is up front with JVW HOME in a cute , cozy log cabin with a welcoming front porch.  In the back, SCOUT has an amazing warehouse of gorgeous lighting and other design goods.

Some pics of my studio before the guests arrive:

We quickly discovered that the cute lil round table just doesn’t cut it when you’re going through wallpaper books with clients.  We hang out on the floor sometimes showing clients our books.  We’ll be replacing the small table soon with a larger table so it’s easier for everyone :).  
We didn’t get a pic of our wallpaper books!  But yall we have loads of great books so come in and see all the fun stuff we’re carrying.  Some of the lines we showcase right now are Claire Bella Studio,  Thibaut, Schumacher, Kravet,  Joanna Gaines’ Magnolia Home, York Wallcoverings, Innovations, Caitlin Wilson, Hygge & West, etc….we’ll be adding more lines every month and welcome your requests of new vendors!
Here’s our conference room where we normally have client meetings/presentations and our quartz displays.
For the event, the  lovely and charming Katya of Lyukum Cooking Lab brought in her amazing Ukrainian appetizers.  Katya is a local Spicewood Chef and Caterer.
The adorable Brazilian couple behind Direct Natural Stones:
Lea Pedrosa Veras and Stephen Veras

The Veras import gorgeous stone countertops such as marbles, granites, and quartz. They are so kind to their clients and want to give you the best deal.  If there’s a stone they don’t have, then they’ll find it at an area stone yard and fabricate & install it for you.

Walking out to the back of our cabin, you’ll find Tara’s very cool warehouse of lighting & design goods.  Look at the gorgeous steel doors she bought from another downtown ATX designer!  The designer had them in his downtown home but didn’t realize how the local Austin music would reverberate noise in his house with the glass. He had to sell them and replace with wood doors to keep the sound down….gotta love Austin and our live music scene!
