Get The Look / Art Deco

Post 7 - Deco finds

Many of Stone Textile’s designs, from the pillows and accessories to interiors and even the logo, have a touch of Art Deco in them, so today I’ve rounded up some favorite finds in that style. Nearly one hundred years after rising to popularity, Art Deco’s glamorous geometric details are still popping up in today’s spaces and products. If your home (or arm!) is feeling a little lackluster, one of this glitzy, patterned pieces may be just the ticket.

THE GOODS: 

Rug, Wallpaper, Tile, Chandelier, Dress, Wall Lamp, Mirror, Book, Ring, Cuff, Stone Textile Deco Stripe Pillow, Gold Pillow, Stone Textile Coasters

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.

Best Of 2014 / Interiors By Stone Textile

Stone-Textile_Living-Room-3

2014 was quite the year interior wise.  I was lucky enough to work on many design projects in Austin and throughout the county with our Edesign feature.   I wanted to share a few of my favorite design moments with you as the year comes to a close.  Big thank you to my amazing clients for letting me into their homes this year.  I have enjoyed working with each and every one of you and am very proud of what we accomplished together.  There are big things in store for 2015 and I will be back to taking regular clients starting in early May after my maternity leave.  Please email me at elizabeth@stonetextilestudio.com to discuss any Spring / Summer 2015 projects.  Happy New Year!  xx Elizabeth

A Minted Holiday…

Stone Textile _Minted 1

It’s that time of year….The holiday season is fast approaching!  Before Thanksgiving, we always start thinking about our company holiday cards.  I love doing something different each year.  This year, we are working with Minted.  They have so many great customizable options  to choose from.  We have  showcased a few favorites on our new diamond chalk wall in the studio.  Make sure to take a look at all of the corporate holiday card options that Minted has to offer here.

Minted 4

I love this color block one.  The letter-pressed foil boarder card is beautiful in person.

Minted 3

Look at all of these patterns!  You can also choose from 100′s of patterned backs for your holiday card.

Modern Bungalow / The Office

IMG_0003_7

Thank you for all of the kind words on our recent home tour in Lonny Magazine!  Each week I am going to breakdown each room and share my sources with you.  Today I am sharing photos from my old home office.  Yes, old–we just moved into our new space (to make room for the baby) this week.  It has been a little crazy over here and the new space is definitely not photo ready.  Above is a close up of my inspiration board.  Pretty much organized chaos in old fashioned “Pinterest” form.

Interiors By Stone Textile_Office 1

I had this desk custom made.  It’s called the “Deco Leg” desk.  I designed some benches for a client last year, very similar, and wanted to do the same thing for my desk.  There was a lot of black + white going on already so I knew I wanted to have it finished in a bright color.  I worked with a local company called AK Woodworking –they are fabulous to work with and made my design become a reality. The chair is vintage that I had reupholstered in a black and cream embroidered fabric.  The lamp is also vintage.  The gallery wall consists of prints from Minted, Amy V Cooper, Art.com, +  Alyson Fox.

The vintage brass etagere was a Craigslist find and I drove all the way to Dallas to pick it up.  You can read more about that vintage excursion here.  The acrylic globe is from Barney’s which we received as a wedding gift.

I fell in love with the design lines of the mirror above.  The colors were BAD.  I repainted it gold, black, and white and it is now one of my favorite pieces.  The daybed is covered in a African Mud Cloth+ Stone Textile Pillows.

One Room Challenge / Week No. 3

ORC_wallpaper-rolls

Welcome to week 3!  I wanted to start off by saying how grateful I am for all of the kind words on my recent Lonny Magazine feature.   I was so honored to see our Austin home in the October issue–if you have not checked it out please do so here!  

Ok, back to the ORC (play catch up here: Week No. 1 + Week No. 2) We did get a lot accomplished this week.  Perhaps the most exciting part was seeing the wallpaper installed.  Wow, does it look good.  I chose the B+W Storm Print by Lindsay Cowles.  Since we are working with a rental, I did not want to do crazy with painting the walls.  I was waiting to see how the wallpaper looked to decide if we needed to paint the walls.  Luckily we don’t and the white works.  Here is a peek at the wallpaper on the bed wall below:

ORC_Wallpaper

I also decided on curtain fabric.  Last week, I explained that we are having some vintage nightstands lacquered in a blue/green.  To stay in the same color family, I chose a beautiful turquoise heavyweight cotton fabric for the curtain panels.  I love green/blue tones with black and white and by the looks of my B+W bracelets it’s all going to work nicely.   See below:

ORC_curtain-swatch

Another project we have to tackle is the vintage armoire DIY.  This piece was such a find (only $100!!!).  My assistant, Audrey,  found this and knew it would be perfect for the ORC. Since we are doing this bedroom for my parents (who will be in and out) I wanted to find a functional storage piece for clothing ect.  This piece is in excellent condition and I am obsessed with the brass hardware.  We want to add a little something to it so, we will be lining the inside walls with the extra wallpaper scraps.  Stay turned….

ORC_Dresser

Besides the piece above, I have also found a lot of other vintage treasures for the space.  I love the design lines of this brass stool.  We will reupholster it in the blue marble fabric below for a little pop of color.

ORC_Stool

I purchased this diamond shaped mirror from Chairish.  We are going to spray paint it matte black…

ORC_Diamond-Mirror

These marble + brass planters are just as pretty in person as they look on Instagram.  Great additions for the console table…

Planters

This week we will be getting the bed from CB2, nightstands will come in, lampshades will be sprayed black (anyone ever done this before?–Tips please!), DIY projects will begin.  Check back next week to see how we are doing!

Make sure to check out what everyone else has accomplished this week!  You can also follow along on Instagram using #oneroomchallenge

Interiors By Stone Textile / Modern Bungalow: Lower Level No.1

Elizabeth Mollen_Living Room 2
Last week our Austin home was featured in the October issue of Lonny Magazine.  Over the next few weeks I am going to go room by room to share some of my favorite images from the shoot as well as the photos we took prior.  When we moved in there was an empty space in the living room area where our current media built in is now.  You can see the before photo below…Yes, the whole lower level was painted lime green when we bought the house.  What a different paint makes right?  I worked with a very talented builder to create this custom book shelve and TV unit.  I wanted it to be unique so each shelve is a different size.  The black and white multi-layered cabinets were inspired by a 1970′s credenza that I saw at a vintage shop years ago and also serve as the perfect cable box/speaker/wire storage. I like when all of that is hidden.  I also had to find something for the round wall (which is the outer wall of our staircase).  I chose a beautiful vintage macramé wall hanging that I purchased on Chairish.   Here are a few more detailed shots…

AFTER:  This after shot was taken before we switched out our dining room art.  I am always changing things around and as much as I love a good gallery wall I felt like a strong piece of artwork would work better for our dining room.

Love This House…Kelly Wearstler Does Austin

photo 3.PNG

I recently came across the image above on Porter Teleo’s Instagram.  Porter Teleo is the company behind all of Kelly Wearstler’s hand painted wall coverings.  How cool is the subtle pattern on the walls?  I had to see more of this penthouse apartment, designed by the very talented Kelly Wearstler.  After doing some searching I found out that this fabulous penthouse is located in downtown  Austin!   I would love to see it in person one day — the details are quite amazing.  Here are a few of my favorite shots….
