WE'RE MOVING TO AUSTIN

Paige Hull

For the past 10 years, Smoot and I have talked about wanting to relocate our family. We didn't know exactly where, we just knew there was something missing.  We love our home in Houston, but the constant feeling that there was more, out there, waiting for us, kept the conversation going.

VINTAGE METAL SIGN

Paige Hull

As long as we can remember, we've always had a thing for numeric typography. It has always spoken to us from the very beginning when we first started with the various ways we've incorporated numbers into the decor of No. 1450 cottage. I think it's such a cool aspect in design, and it continues to catch our eye, especially with authentic pieces like this vintage metal sign.

MODERN VINTAGE STYLE - AGED GLASS PANES

Paige Hull

This past spring at Marburger, we found these absolutely amazing aged glass panes at the Counter Culture booth, owned by Chad Kilgore. By the time we got there, Chad had already sold all of them, which was so sad! But luckily, he was able to secure a few more once he went back home to Kansas City. We were able to snag a few from this sought-after collection.

4th OF JULY IN ROUND TOP

Paige Hull

Aside from the Antique Show, Round Top is such a wonderful place to visit all year round! One of our favorite times of the year to spend in Round Top is the 4th of July. It's the absolute perfect place to celebrate our country, our freedom, and those who died to preserve it.

FRENCH METAL ROUTE MILITAIRE SIGN

Paige Hull

Back in its day, this vintage French sign may have served as a signal post for military traffic or a town road sign. Today, it serves as a sign post from the past with the its vintage paint and worn edges. 

We found this cool sign in the French town of Marseilles, which is a beautiful beach town on the water. As we explored and took in the sights, you could really feel the soul of this old French town. It was such an incredible experience visiting this amazing place, much less being able to shop for priceless antiques there. 

This vintage sign is an authentic French piece. Today there is a tremendous amount of vintage and antique knock-offs, so there's something to be said about the soul and stories carried with an authentic piece. We think this sign was used on a military road, so each man or woman who drive by it had a story and a reason for being there. That's the soul that these pieces carry with them throughout the years. 

This charmingly worn sign can bring a bit of French nostalgia to your home decor. Lean it on a shelf among other cherished trinkets or hang it amid your gallery wall.

MODERN VINTAGE STYLE - HOME EXTERIOR

LODGING, THE VINTAGE ROUND TOP

As I'm sure you've heard/seen by now, we re-painted the exterior of the house from blue to Nordic black! We gave a little sneak peek back in February, but today we're posting additional photos and giving a little more background into the Modern Vintage Style choice. If you haven't yet, you can read more about my family's Scandinavian heritage and how that played into our black color choice in our Sneak Peek post.

LODGING, THE VINTAGE ROUND TOP

There are about a million different shades of black, so it's always hard to make a choice. Especially when so many are just ever so slightly different. But, we ended up picking this particular shade, which is Valspar Lincoln Cottage. We liked that is was a true black, and did not have overt purple or blue undertones. We felt like it paired best with the white trim and stained wood.  

LODGING, THE VINTAGE ROUND TOP

Along with picking the color, we also had to pick a finish. From flat to eggshell and satin to gloss, there are so many choices and things to think about when choosing a finish. We decided to go with the satin finish because it gives the black a silky quality and it's much more durable than flat. And we feel that the satin finish matched the Modern Vintage Style the best.

LODGING, THE VINTAGE ROUND TOP

We loved the idea of black and white, not only because of my Scandinavian heritage, but also because it is very clean and modern. We added the stained wood for warmth and interest. We couldn't be happier with the outcome.
