Check us out in Luxe interiors + design

I have to say that I have been slacking a bit (a lot) with my blog posts for a while.  Today, however, I was presented with the perfect opportunity to blog about something cool!
Our little Luxe Magazine champion, Shanan Koschak, brought over the latest copy, hot off the press, of Luxe interiors + design! (The Dallas + Fort Worth Luxe that is)
We're right at the front section of ASID DESIGNER'S CHOICE AWARDS!  For those who are not familiar, the American Society of Interior Designers [ASID] is a community of people - designers, industry reps, educators and students - committed to interior design.  Congratulations to all the winners! Well, now I'm starting to be very sorry we didn't participate, because if we did, we'd have two pages in Luxe for sure :)
Check us out! Page 230.
...and meanwhile, you can flip through the online version of the magazine's past issues.

Lantern Restoration

This is one of Richard Potter's grandfather's light fixtures which Henry Potter made in the 20's for a residence in Lakewood, Dallas.  From the looks of it, the fixture was probably painted white in the 60's and left to fight the elements since then.  The current owner of the home wanted to save the adorable little pendant, and so she brought it to us asking if we can help.  Although badly rusted, the fixture was in a good enough condition for us to simply de-rust, prime, and put a brand new coat of paint on.  The little patient is all better now and ready to warmly welcome the next generation home.
