Modern Baby Gear

Interiors By Stone Textile_Dining Room

Well, after almost two weeks at home with Maxwell our house has turned into baby central. The designer in me has been very selective with what gear we chose.  I know the endless amounts of baby clutter is bound to happen but we are trying hard to keep it at a minimum (we will see how long that lasts!)  I tried to focus on the more  modern + practical pieces since our lower level is an open floor plan (dining room pre-baby featured above).  Here are a few of our favorite pieces so far…

The Nuna Leaf // Max loves swaying back and forth in this stylish rocker. Last night he slept in there for almost two hours!   We got the charcoal one — highly recommended.

The Bloom Fresco High Chair //  Max can use this piece as an infant up to toddler age.  I love the sleek design and how it can serve as a little bassinet for our lower level.  We went with black + metallic silver to match our kitchen.

Lion Baby Blanket //  I love this piece, perfect for tummy time.  I purchased it at Anthropologie a few months ago.

The Bloom Coco Rocker //  This is a rocker I got for the office.  Max can rock away in style when I take him to work.

Custom Boppy Pillow Cover // I love the Boppy pillow and just ordered a fun geometric cover for ours.

Fashion For The Home

AP 1

Blogger extraordinaire Blair Eadie is known for her incredible fashion sense and her enviable ability to mix and match. Her look is a blend of classic and statement pieces, and we couldn’t help but notice that many of her ensembles perfectly coordinate with Stone Textile pillows. Great minds! Because of Elizabeth’s background in fashion, it’s no wonder that the fabrics and draping of her pillows are right in line with Blair’s fabulous wardrobe.

Mr. Max

Maxwell

On 1.21.15 we welcomed our son Maxwell Reid into the world.  It has been a crazy few weeks adjusting to our new rolls as parents.  Thank you for all of the well wishes and sweet comments.  We are so in love with this little guy.   I am working on some (decor related) “new mom” posts that will go up in the next few weeks so stay tuned!

Inside the Tribeza Interiors Tour

This past Saturday I was thrilled to be able to attend the annual Tribeza Interiors Tour, especially since Elizabeth’s gorgeous home was just featured in their latest issue. The tour comprised of eight amazing homes around Austin, all of which had a great mix of aspirational and accessible decor. Each space had a unique style, from glamorous to casual, and from modern to traditional. There were some unifying trends, however, and they were all gorgeous enough for any style of decorator to get behind.

Wall coverings are making a huge comeback right now. Gone are the days of tacky borders and bland stripes; this generation of wallpaper is chic as can be. From masculine charcoal grasscloth in an office to a rainbow of Penguin Classics in a powder room, each home showed its own unique spin on dressed up walls.

Beautifully patterned tile was the second standout trend this year, whether found on bathroom floors, stair risers, or kitchen backsplashes (just check out the incredible mirrored detail in the second photo). Each of these tiled spaces felt exotic, like I was suddenly transported to a fabulous Greek hotel. Couldn’t we all use that feeling when we go to brush our teeth in the morning?

Lastly, it comes as no surprise that vintage rugs were always underfoot. Traditional patterns in gorgeous colors made these rooms feel vibrant and timeless. If only every designer would reveal his or her sources!

Style My…With Charish

Post 4 - Chairish Rugs

I love a good treasure hunt, but sometimes slogging through Craigslist ads or spending all day on my feet at an antique mall ends up being a fruitless pursuit. Enter Chairish, the magical retailer that seems to have an “Awesome Stuff Only” policy when it comes to their stash of vintage goodies. You can even sort by style, designer, or city to find the missing link for your space (every room needs a dash of vintage!). Here I’ve chosen an eclectic patchwork rug from Chairish to create a colorful entryway that’s as functional as it is chic. Look out though – my bare entry makes me think this rug may soon be unavailable…Shop all rugs on Chairish here.

Austin friends, this Saturday is the annual Tribeza Interiors Tour.  Last year, we had so much fun touring the homes of Austin’s top interior designers.  Read about that weekend here.  Since the baby will be arriving (hopefully this week!) I cannot make it this year.  My assistant Audrey will be going in my place so make sure to follow along on Instagram (@stonetextile) for her findings.  Tickets can be purchased on site at each of the houses or in advance here.  Take a look at what this round of Austin designers have in store for you–going to be good!

Style My / Guest Bedroom

Post 1 - Room Design

Now that holiday guests have come and gone, a guest room refresh may be in order to usher in a new year of hosting in style. This chic space is just the ticket for welcoming friends and family; a bright, energetic space with graphic textiles and cool metallic accents is definitely a respite from your average hotel suite. Add a few guest room essentials like a sleek carafe and scented candle, and your visitors may just overstay their welcome!

Around The Studio…

It’s finally January!  It seems like ages ago when I made the baby announcement and now he can really arrive any day.  I am trying to keep really busy and get into new mom mode.  I am lucky to have my new assistant, Audrey, help me with this transition.   She will be taking over for the time being and handling all of our online orders +  special orders.   She will also be guest blogging on Stone Textile At Home from time to time and  I will pop in occasionally as well.  I will be taking Austin based interior clients starting in May and  Edesign clients starting in April.  Please contact me if you have a new project you would like to discuss and in the meantime Audrey can answer all of your product related questions! (audrey@stonetextilestudio.com)  I will still be posting on Instagram so you can follow my new adventures in baby land (@stonetextile)  Have a great weekend!  Xx Elizabeth

Keeping It Local / Maggie Louise Confections

Candy 8

I came across Maggie Louise Confections a few months ago and I knew I had to work with them in some way.  They take the basic box of chocolate to the next level–chocolate couture.  We recently worked together to create a box as a thank you  for the Tribeza office and I was so pleased with how it turned out (see below).  More eye candy  (literally) below…

Tribeza Interiors Issue / Modern Bungalow Home Tour

Interiors By Stone Textile_Living Room

Local love is the best.  I am honored to have my home featured in the Tribeza Interiors Issue (Austin’s premier lifestyle magazine) .  Austin friends, the magazine hits newsstands today.   We had the pleasure of working with the very talented photographer, Casey Dunn.  I loved the direction he took and the photos really turned out beautifully.  Big thank you to the Tribeza team!    Above:  My dog Toby modeling in our living room.  Yes, he matches.

This shot is a favorite.  I worked with a local woodworker to design this custom book shelf and entertainment center.

The black and white kitchen, Casey really captured all of the layers here.  Such a great shot.
