COUNTDOWN TO BABY DAY

So we are days away from welcoming our little baby girl. Amy picked out some wonderful modern baby furniture from Baby Bliss in Dallas. Simple white and neutral colors create the perfect palette for the soon-to-be onslaught of brightly colored plastic toys that will no dought cover the entire room at some point.

IN IT FOR THE LONG HALL(WAY) II

Updated images of the second floor hallway. Long thin windows at knee level provide ample light and create the perfect canvas above for artwork.

LET’S GO OUT AND PLAY

It’s that time of year to get out and play. It took us most of late winter to finish up the large retaining walls in the backyard. They are 40′ long runs of black lueders limestone. The 18″ x 18″ x 5′ blocks do a great job of holding everything back and defining a beautiful flat terrace of zoysia turf. The remainder of the sloped backyard is planted with Texas sage, mexican feather grass, purple fountain grass, orange african bulbine, rosemary, and a variety of other succulents.
