Happy 4th!

This perfect patriotic table, above and below, was designed beautifully by Danielle Rollins, and you can go here to read her entertaining tips for the 4th of July.

Love this red, white and blue bedroom designed Robin Henry.

Happy Fourth of July!


Blue and White Monday: Curb Appeal

While interior design is a primary focus at TPP, I also love being charmed by a home's exterior.  Ever since I can remember, I've fixated on facades scrutinizing and analyzing them as I peer out a car window, go for a walk, or look at home magazines.  I'm noticing more and more front doors painted blue, and it's a trend I like a lot.

The houses above and below are here in Dallas, and I snapped these photos with my phone.  I love them both, and I'm keeping an eye out for more : ).


Ann Jackson's One Room Challenge Dining Room


Artist Ann Jackson, whom I featured here last September, recently participated in Calling It Home's Spring 2016 One Room Challenge. Using her new line of wallpaper, Ann made over her dining room. It's quite striking, and D Magazine featured the project here.  

Isn't this puppy the cutest?  It looks exactly like my little Maltipoo, Sugar.  As Ann and I live in the same neighborhood, I'm thinking they should be friends.

See more of Ann's One Room Challenge project here.

Gorgeous photography by Elizabeth Lanvin.


Porch Weather


Southern Living

The weather here in Dallas has been amazing as of late.  Today began looking less promising with lots of clouds and drizzle, but it's cleared up, and I hear birds chirping.  How I wish I could enjoy this lovely time of year on a fantastic porch like the one above.  Soon, the Texas heat will be too much for me, and enjoying the outdoors and the AC simultaneously will be preferable.  The glassed-in porch below would be perfect for me in July and August.


I've been way too busy to stop and enjoy this gorgeous weather. I'm going to try very hard to take the time to make that happen before it's gone.  I hope you're able to go outdoors and indulge in this lovely time of year.
