Around Town -- Again and Again

I've posted about Again and Again before.  It's one of my very favorite Dallas shopping destinations.  They've just moved, and are now on Riverfront, if you're here in Dallas.  When I shop, I don't always think about taking blog photos, but I walked in the door of Again and Again Saturday and immediately wanted to take pics.  

Can you believe this table base?  Waaay too awesome for my house.

I would love this in my living room.  My in the future much cooler living room.

I love this in white, but it's fun to imagine it in other colors, too.

These pagoda mirrors are incredible.  And there's a pair.  My daughter was with me, and thought it was very cute to insert her arm in my photo (mirror on the left).

We went before everything had been moved from the other location.  I'll have to run in again soon to see what I missed.  Their website is worth checking out, too.  See it here.  Do you see anything here you like?

Look Familiar?

Does any of this look familiar to you?  Occasionally, I enjoy looking through Dallas real estate listings.  I was perusing last night and saw this house.  I knew immediately that it looked very familiar.  I'd seen this house in the December 2008 issue of Southern Accents.  Decorated for Christmas, it was so warm and beautiful that I shared the photos on my blog this past December.  And can you guess the well known Dallas designer who created these lovely interiors?  Cathy Kincaid, of course.  Even though summer is almost upon us, you should still take a look at this house in all its Christmas finery.  See it here.

Around Town -- Mecox

Are you familiar with Mecox?  There are eight of them in the country, and I visited the Dallas location Saturday.  It's in Uptown and a stone's throw from the new Jonathan Adler store.  These may be the most fantastic foo dogs I've seen in person.  The photo doesn't show scale, but they are huge.  And they should be for $800 for the pair.

The Mecox website has an incredible online catalog that you can see here.

Margaret, a customer, sent these photos from her recent powder room project.  The way she had her prints framed is so pretty.  I love the way she coordinated the prints and her towels.  Aren't those monograms gorgeous?

Blue Print and Collins Interiors

These photos are from Blue Print, an amazing and unique shop here in Dallas.  It's located inside a lovely old house with high ceilings and fabulous architectural details.  You can see from the photos, that what is a business, feels more like a beautiful home.  

What I didn't know is that the talented designers who created Blue Print also have an interior design firm called Collins Interiors.  The photos below are from their portfolio.

I think their work is gorgeous, and want to just go hang out in the unbelievably gorgeous store.  I love the eclectic, clean, but well layered look they create.  What are your thoughts?

Happy Friday!

My Visit to the New Dallas Jonathan Adler Store

We have a Jonathan Adler store in Dallas and I visited Saturday afternoon.  When I saw that the store had opened, I was excited to go in and it definitely did not disappoint.  

The orange in this store may be my favorite orange ever.  I like it even better than Hermes orange.  

My family room needs two of these. 

The quality of the merchandise looks great in person.  The furniture is very well done and the lamps are gorgeous.

This bold blue and white contrast is so fantastic in person.  My phone camera just didn't make it happen here.

Incredible fixtures.  This one is my favorite.

This everything is amazing.  I love JA's irreverent take.  These lamps are his version of Staffordshire dogs.  

I snapped these all over the store.  They're perfect with the happy, fun atmosphere.  The people who work there are quite nice and friendly.  I'll be going back soon as my daughter was very sad to have missed this excursion.  Thoughts?
