OK.....I watched the episode of Hoarders about the Julian Price House.  2 things....I am now convinced I am not a hoarder.....if only for the fact I do not have 31 rooms to fill.  

Second thing....when they showed all of those vintage fabric samples in the basement....I had a desire to have them.

What a haul that would be!

Next up on the agenda is I neglected to tell you guys about my House Beautiful dinner at the String and Splinter Club while in Highpoint.

Yes.... as I was casually packing for my trip I got an invite to a small dinner of designers and vendors thrown by Sophie Donelson.   Gulp.  This changes everything.

What the hell to wear.  I destroyed my closet and came up with nothing.  Zero....zilch....nada.  So I went to my neighbors house and we tried on things....still nothing.  Poop.

In the end I just threw in half my closet and said "maybe when my hair is clean....with makeup on....things will look better".


Anyway I managed to pull it together and after accessing everyone else I feel like I did a decent job of faking my fashion sense.

Now back to what I saw at Highpoint.  I will try to remember the vendors but can't promise!

Starting with some new products from Circa Lighting

This collection below from Julie Neill was stunning.....it also came in white!

Julian Chichester had us all gasping with this pattern from Christopher Farr Cloth

Branches everyday....all day.

Everything was beautiful!

This pretty flower arrangement made with babies breath in the Universal Showroom

This bed....

Nice leather modern chair.....

Love this "faux bois" bench from Currey and Co

This gallery wall from 214 Modern Vintage  Love visiting this store.....

I can't remember where I saw this....but I liked it!

Next up is Design Legacy

This new fabric collection from Denise McGaha

Love this sofa fabric....

CR Laine chairs

Headed over to BoBo Intriguing Objects 

Something as simple as old wood on the wall....

Celerie Kemble's collection for Eastern Accents

So textural!

I am sure you are glazing over by now.....there is so much more!

And....the most asked question from the Julian Price House......lighting over the kitchen island....they are from Currey and Co.



OK.....before we dive into more pictures of The Julian Price House [you can find list of designers]....here is the update on my Weight Watchers journey.....

Down 5 pounds in 20 days.....definitely a little slow for this instant gratification girl:)  When I weighed myself I was moving the scale all over the bathroom floor to see if it would change ha ha.  I plan to kick in the workout schedule a little more to get this ball rolling.

I find myself eating the same food everyday for lack of imagination.....meaning it's too much trouble to figure out something else and get it together to cook it.

Anyway....I'm not discouraged!  I don't give up that easily.

Let's get back to the showhouse sponsored by Southern Home Magazine.

Before you walked into the kitchen there was one of my favorite rooms.....

It was like a butlers pantry....small dining area.

I remember looking at this bread and thinking "Good Lord I could dive into that right now....eat the whole loaf without looking up even if it had been tied up and dragged behind a car for an hour."

The kitchen was totally renovated.

Love this cute girls room.....

My friend Cheryl [Dwell By Cheryl] put this perfectly layered closet together and it was fabulous!!!

This wall treatment!

She is going places.....only just starting her full time design business recently....

Cheryl you killed it with this layered textural space.

And that's all I got.  I believe it's open until May 1st so if you are local you should definitely see!

I've got what is known as a Highpoint hangover....seeing so much product and pretty things! Kinda hard to get back into the swing of things but no choice here.....
