Kreiss Austin Showroom

I wasn't in love, to be honest, during my first visit to the Kreiss showroom on 6th, but I took some pictures to share of some of the things that stood out.

It felt more like a furniture store, like Ethan Allen, if you will.  Something was missing.

I thought these medicine bottles were pretty.  Then I saw them at Pier 1.  They were actually less at Kreiss though.

I thought this fixture would be perfect in a poolside cabana.  If only I had a cabana!
They usedlots of these squares to add color and texture.  I think I'd get tired of these at home, but I guess they work in a showroom.

Shopping Shabby Slips

Slipcovers, seagrass, linen, velvet, vintage finds, white orchids, contemporary lamps, guilded mirrors and crystal chandeliers....  Enjoy the beauty.

 The coral was eye catching.

 Here they mix shiny silvers with goldy brasses.
 These chairs looked like sculpture woven from cotton ribbons.

 My sister loved this jewelry cabinet. 
 Inside we found velvet lined jewelry storage hidden in the self closing drawer.

Shabby Slips on 6th near Z Tejas never disappoints.

Shawn Colvin in Austin Monthly HOME

Picked up the latest issue of Austin Monthly HOME at my new favorite shop, Twenty Three 07.  Shawn calls her home "Eclectic Chaos".  I'm overstimulated just looking at these pics in the Winter issueBut what caught my eye was the Schumacher Chiang Mai Dragon in mocha on the walls of her bedroom.  Her designer Jerri Kunz painted the ceiling a bold orange to accent stating that "Color is a muse for Shawn."  Here's to vivid dreams and a bright and bold Austin Star's home.
