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.
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.
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.
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.

As most of you know, it took a while for the Boho cottage to be built. We opened our doors during the Spring 2017 Antique Show with our Business, Branding & Social Media Workshop as the first event and Emily Henderson's crew as our first guests.Read More

It's hard to put into words how grateful we are that Emily Henderson and her team stayed at at our place during the spring antique show. Life works in mysterious ways, because none of this would have happened if we hadn't received a cancellation the day before we got a call from Emily's team. I was upset and frustrated about the cancellation, but obviously everything happens for a reason and I'm unbelievably thankful for it now.

When opportunity knocks, you roll up your sleeves and get to work. We had a major push to get everything done with Boho (the new cottage) in time for Emily's stay. We worked late nights and early mornings, living on caffeine to get the job done. We appreciate our staff, our contractors that worked round the clock, our children who pitched in and helped weekend after weekend, and our family and friends who cared for our kids while we were away. It truly does take a village!
As a short recap of their stay, we had the pleasure of guiding them around Round Top while they stayed at our No. 1450 and Boho cottages. We were able to show them our magical town, and gave them tips on where to shop and dine. It was such a fun time getting to explore Round Top with them and to see it from the perspective of first-timers!

As a result of hard work and this amazing opportunity, we gained a new audience from Emily but we also gained new friends. Emily and her team were the sweetest people you could ever meet. We spent a lot of time with them and really got to know them well. Hosting Emily not only helped our business, but it also was great for our souls!

Watching Emily and her team was remarkable. They are like a well oiled machine. We're humbled by their reaction to our space and brand and are thankful for everything they've done to get the word out about us and Round Top!
