YELLOW CONFERENCE FEATURE, THE VINTAGE ROUND TOP - PAIGE'S BLOG

Recently, we had the good fortune of connecting with the wonderful women at Yellow Conference when they reached out to us for an interview on their blog! The Yellow community was thought up by Joanna Waterfall and exists to gather and equip creative women to use their passion, strengths, and influence to serve the greater good in the world. Yellow celebrated their 3rd annual conference this past August with over 500 creative entrepreneurial women in Los Angeles. 

One of the things we love about Yellow is the sense of community that they promote. It's easy to get caught up in competition and comparing our work to others, when we can instead be learning from and empowering other women. We feel so honored to be included in such a strong community of creative women. Check out a short excerpt from the interview below and visit the Yellow Blog to read more about our inspiration, living with intention, our commitment to sustainability, and more!

Where do you live and what brought you there?

Our family home is in Houston, Texas. The Vintage Round Top (RVT), our vacation home rental, is located only an hour and fifteen minutes away in the magical town of Round Top, Texas. Fate brought us there a little over five years ago. We took the scenic route home from visiting Smoot’s (my husband) mom and stumbled upon an open house in Round Top. The open house realtor educated us on the need for rental property in the area. We thought buying a house in Round Top was out of the question until we learned they can be rented during the bi-annual world famous Antique Fair that attracts over 125,000 people per year to this tiny town of 90 permanent residents.

Do you have a favorite quote or motto that you live by?

Yes, “Live with Intention!” We were given this advice right before we stopped at the Open House we mentioned earlier. In fact, that’s why we stopped. We thought, let’s go inside and get the “mojo” going for when we’d be in a position to purchase a second home in the country. Had we not made that stop, we wouldn’t have been told about the rental property business and wouldn’t be answering your questions today. So, our advice is to take action oriented steps towards your goals and desires. Ours was simply to find something creative to do together. And boy, did we ever find that!

MODERN VINTAGE TRENDS - NEW COTTAGE SNEAK PEEK PART 1

Paige Hull

We spent the day in Round Top with stylist and decorator Becki Griffin of Curious Details, and designer Holly Mathis of Holly Mathis Interiors.  Smoot and I walked them through the selections we've made for the new cottage and event space.

Modern Vintage Trends - Part 1 - The Vintage Round Top

We set up vignettes in each room to represent the colors. style, and materials we've chosen. What a blessing it was to have these two over-the-top talented friends come by to spend the day with us.

The two Instagram posts above show a sneak peek of one of the bathroom's selections. The Moroccan tile is from Cle' Tile out of Los Angeles, and the lovely faucet is from Galveston Architectural Salvage Warehouse - yes, it's worth the drive!  

We're excited to be getting to this point in the project. There are so many details to think about and to coordinate. Seeing them all come together is a dream come true!
