I headed out to Round Top this past week to check out one of my favorite shopping spots, Arbor Antiques. It's a grouping of tented vendor stalls along that Round Top antique trail that have been curated to appeal to more of an interior designer look.
I've been checking out their stalls for years and love to see who is back each season and who is new to group.
There were more jewelry boutiques there this time than I've seem to have seen before, so if you are into some handmade jewelry, you should go. Cool necklaces, bracelets, etc.
That was not what I was there for this time, I was looking for a few items for my clients and my own stash of unique accessories that I keep on hand for styling.
Here's what I ran across though that made me stop and look.
Gosh, these were gorgeous!
And although I'm not much of a silk flower fan.....I can get behind this more minimal look in a heartbeat.
I love the low, grassy green look. Don't you?
This vendor, Botanica Unlimited, had some gorgeous selections.
More Finds From Round Top
Here are a few more pics of what I saw at the Arbor Antiques stalls.
There are always some artists and framers that have really beautiful works to peruse. This one below is venetian plaster on board, by Scott Kerr. Wouldn't they make great pieces for these large two story spaces we have here in Texas?
Some lovely soft, pastel oil paintings by Page Gregory Matthews.
This antique print and framer caught my eye, Michael Paul Designs. Loved that he used fabric and different burlaps and textural matting with his work. This piece below is a set with a walnut wood mat. Great for a library or other masculine type space, no?
There was color and pattern too. I spoke with the owner of this shop, Courtney Barton of Mela and Roam.
These are her textiles, printed on cotton, then upholstered or sewn to create all kinds of one-of-a-kind items for the home. She has a small shop in Houston for her bespoke pieces. Her pillows are just lovely and have such pretty details.
Moroccan style isn't going anywhere anytime soon. Loved these blankets with their fun colors and poms from Antevasins.
More pillows for the color loving people!
As a texture and neutral lover, this collection of baskets caught my eye, from Azulina Home.
This was a cool furniture stall, Resurrected Furniture, with all kinds of old chests that had been painted and refinished. Nice hardware pulls and I love the grays.
I need a project to incorporate old finds like these. Seems like everyone wants new these days. I think this would make such an interesting powder room vanity.
Right next door to Arbor Antiques is Chelsea Meadows.
I like one vendor there on the corner for his rugs and Turkish olive jars. A few years ago he started spraying them white since all of Houston is so into white these days. (I have a collection of black ones, but these whites are nice.)
I'm checking these rugs out for a client's entry hall. Unusual color, no?
