This is Francis...He has quite a presence, doesn't he? My friend Dana has a thing for white ceramic animals, well any animal really. I snapped a few pictures of her gorgeously decorated home to show you guys. She has such a knack for merging rustic elements in a modern way. Each room seems to flow into the next with the same fresh feel.
A seasoned DIYer, Dana refinished the console table and also created white "book jackets" on her shelves. She grouped the books by tying them together with twine.
The dining table is from Pier 1. That amazing buffet cart below is from a shop called Loft in her hometown of Austin. (All the cool kids come from Austin. This is true.)
Remember the book of botanicals I tore pages from and framed? Dana was the one who discovered it. Below is her botanical gallery hanging created from the pages. She found the little "coffee table" at a garage sale we went to together; it cost a whopping $2. Can you believe that?
Here's Dana with Sara Lee. If you've seen some of my other posts (with Tanya, or Molly, or Stacie), you may be asking the question, "Are all of your friends gorgeous?". Yes. Yes they are. Sometimes I have to stop myself from staring. At least they love me and aren't creeped out when I gush over their amazing hair and poreless skin. OK, stopping now. Isn't that stonework in the entry just beautiful too?
I wanted to throw in another view of Francis. If you want a "Francis" of your own, he comes from the land of Z Gallerie. Such a handsome fella'
