All of the interior design inspiration I have been sharing
from the archives of Pamela Pierce Designs
(today’s topic is BEDROOMS)
has me itching to load up my SUV and hightail
it to Houston to drink whatever the creatives
in Texas are imbibing – they’re truly on their game
and designing the lovely I love!
To whom could I be referring?
In addition to Pam Pierce, there is the team
at Milieu, including Shannon Bowers,
Eleanor Cummings (featured in the magazine),
Chateau Domingue’s Ruth Gay,
blogger/designer/Milieu contributor Greet Lefevre
(by way of Belgium!), Texas bloggers/designers
Leslie Sinclair and Joni Webb, Round Top’s
shabby chic Brit on the prairie, Rachel Ashwell,
and Fixer Upper Phenoms, Joanna and Chip.
Methinks I am spacing out royally and neglecting
too many Texas lovelies…je suis désolé, but
in any case, I do believe
I’m fixin’ to get my Texas on soon
(fixin’ to is the only Texas-speak the fairy
from the heartland knows and hails from a
former neighbor who habitually cracked her up).
They used to sort of love me in Texas.
I’m a writer and was a regular contributor
to a column in PARENTWISE AUSTIN for years.
I wrote these edgy, true, humiliating stories
about “My Life as a Parent” of two
naughty independent thinking sons.
I was so sad to see that magazine close its
doors…an artist would draw these
illustrations to accompany my essays,
and seeing those depictions thrilled me and
soothed the inevitable vulnerability hangovers.
They (magazine editors) also loved me in
New York and Vermont.
And San Diego. Canada still thinks I’m a hoot!
But the state I call home? Boo. Not so much.
(Maybe Illinois finds me one bubble off plumb?)
These beautiful bedrooms by Pamela Pierce.
Were they a dessert, surely they would taste of
strawberries and cream, deliciously not too sweet.
I admire how they’re fleeky on pointe without
becoming fussy, too presh, or granny frou frou.
There’s romantic elegance, classic timelessness,
feminine refinery and gentle quietude in them.
Honest? Oui, Honest.
As opposed to dishonest
(which would be more slippery than a pocketful of puddin‘).
These bedrooms are lovely to behold, and so we shall.
