Fabulous Room Friday 08.07.09

The home of my dear friend, the extraordinarily talented Sally Wheat is featured on the cover of this month's Houston House and Home Magazine. I couldn't be happier for her because she truly is as sweet as she is talented. She also has a very fresh point of view which I find completely inspiring.

My other friend, Joni Webb of Cote de Texas was asked to write the article for the magazine, so it is doubly exciting to know that two of my friends were involved in such a wonderful project. You may remember Sally's house from when Joni first "stalked" it last year. Anyway, take a moment to enjoy the pictures of Sally's family room / downstairs living area here, then hop on over to Cote de Texas to see Joni's tour of the rest of Sally's gorgeous home. In the famous words of Rachel Zoe, "I DIE!!".

This home is fantastic! I love the mix of traditional and modern pieces. Paloma- when you have a chance come by and visit, the new City Escapes series started today. Have a wonderful weekend.

I was so excited when our, "Houston House & Home" copies arrived at the office! Her home is beautiful!

Wow! This house is fabulous; there are so many inviting layers to her space that appear as you look through the images. Hope you get to help your friends celebrate this great feature!!

I love Joni's "Stalking the Wheats" story. Beautiful house, inside and out.

I could live in ONE ROOM of that house!

Surely Sally can't be happy in this home...? Fortunately, I am an exceptionally giving person and would be happy (for kharma's sake, of course) to live here for her. I know... I'm just THAT nice.

LOVE it! And that collection of plates in the kitchen is spot on! Sigh. :)

What a great house! I love the living room with the white slipcovers and beautiful grey floor to ceiling shutters!

Cote de Texas said...

Oh, Paloma! How sweet of you to do this! I love it. What a wonderful world blogging is.

Thank you, my friend!
Joni

Love it, what a great space! I love the restrained palette, the mix of the old and new, the industrial and the refined and the subtle layers of accessories and art. Look as though I may have to make a trip out to Houston, I have seen so many beautiful spaces out of there over the past year. Well done!

Really beautiful! And I have to say I am partial to texans, being a southern girl myself (and soon to be texan)! =) Have a great weekend!

Love your blog! Love, love, love this house :-)
Do you know where the black and white flower prints in the dining area are from? Thanks!

I am also wondering about the black and white flower prints..anyone????

Paloma {La Dolce Vita} said...

For those who asked about the black and white prints, this is from Sally:

I got the paintings at Frame Tek (in Houston). The owner, Chris Lesiker (sp?) painted them and probably has more there at the shop that are the same or similar. He's located off Washington.
