Hable Construction!!

Last Friday, we posted about the fabulous Athens, Georgia home of Susan Hable Smith. After reading about here, I took a walk through her website, Hable Construction, and fell so in love with so many of her designs!! Susan started Hable Construction with her sister, Katharine Hable. Both women (originally from here in Texas) have a love for design and creation which is obvious when you see what they produce. Love, love them!!

LOVE all their different bags!

Gorgeous in Georgia!!

Prints, color and fabulous textiles abound in this beautiful Athens, Georgia home!! The house belongs to textile designer/artist, Susan Hable Smith, and her family. I have never seen SO many different prints and color and lines and designs work so well in one place!! I absolutely adore their home. Some rooms are pretty tame compared to others but I love the mix of bright and playful with calm and relaxing. Thank you, Elle Decor, for sharing!!

Stand Alone Tubs!

The bathtub. Sometimes the tub is just part of a shower/tub combo and other times the tub is the focal point of a bathroom. I recently stayed in a hotel with the most beautiful stand alone tub. That got me thinking of the fact that the stand alone tub is not a usual design choice for the bathroom so I wanted to find some inspiration. Why don’t we all have tubs like these?

Happy Earth Day!

Approximately 4 million trees were lost in the destructive Texas wildfire in 2011.  High Fashion Home and Arbor Day Foundation will plant  34,864 trees in 2013 towards the Lost Pines Forest Recovery Campaign.  And we are hoping to plant considerably more.  Thanks to all of our wonderful customers for contributing to a meaningful cause. High Fashion Home might be just one store.  But when working together with caring people and incredible organizations, we can start making a difference.
As of March 31, 2013, High Fashion Home and the Arbor Day Foundation have committed to planting 50,604 trees around the world.

Here are some photos below that the Arbor Day Foundation was kind enough to share from their recent trip to the Bastrop State Park.

Mirror, Mirror On the Wall

I love using mirrors. Mirrors make rooms feel bigger, they add personality, the can do double duty for checking your hair and makeup as well as functioning as a piece of art; a piece of art that changes as you move about the room. Love ’em. Here is some mirror inspiration.

 You can go floor to ceiling to really open up an area.

Ellen and Portia at Home!!

Who knew Ellen was so passionate about interior design! And she’s so good at it. Ellen and wife, Portia de Rossi, bought their Santa Monica Ranch in 2009. This vast property has 8 cabins, horse stables and the most gorgeous surroundings!  Each room is full of simple touches, mid-century style pieces and gentle rustic accents. Love!
