Timeless style....that takes my breath away ~


I always return to things I love.
I just can't help it....

I was talking to Lisa the other day and she told me
that she wanted to do a Rose Hicks post....
we couldn't stop talking about the amazing style she has!!
And of course, all of her daughters are blessed with
a design style that is unmatched, just like their mom.
Lisa has featured Rose's home on her latest post....
and I found a few pages that feature her daughters style ~


These wonderful pages have been in my inspiration stash for many years...
and they are all just as gorgeous now as the day they were published.

You can click on these photos to enlarge,
then click them again for the full page size.

Janet Proch's home....



A gorgeous space Carol Hicks Bolton designed.....




More of Janet's home....





A feature about Homestead,
a store that Carol formerly owned in Fredricksburg, TX
...so gorgeous!









These amazing women listen to their heart and design with what they love.
With all of this wonderful talent, wouldn't it be so neat
if they had a book of their own??!!

A girl can dream can't she??



I hope you have a wonderful Thursday dear friends....
hugs and love,
Dawn

Hi Dawn

I'm afraid to day that I've never heard of Carol. But oh my I sure missed a lot of wonderfulness. I love the barn photo it's so warm and inviting.

Thanks for bringing her into my life.

Hi Dawn,
I really enjoyed Lisa's post about Rose's home. I remember that issue and I still have it.
The pictures of these beautiful rooms are amazing. I am always in awe that someone can take such a mixture of textures and make it breathtaking.
Lovely post. Now I want to change everything in my house! LOL

Dawn,
Oh yeah baby, a book! I would be down at the publisher's everyday waiting for the release. I actually had a few Texas girls comment on my post yesterday that they didn't know the Boltons' ???? How can it be, we must school them. Maybe we should ghost write the Bolton book, but we need to bring June in it! LOL Lisa

The Tin Rabbit said...

A sweet hello from Frog Hollow Farm! What a beautiful post. Thank you for sharing these lovely photos and great decorating ideas. How inspiring!
Ciao, bella!

rebecca's rainbow kisses said...

Wow! Janet's home is amazing. I love the entry way with the display of feathers and prints above the beautiful bench. Just lovely. What will you be doing with all the watch gears? Steampunk art? I look forward to seeing your next wonderful creation.
hugs, Rebecca

Vee said...

Thank you for introducing me to these decorators. I could be right at home in any of these spaces. Off to follow some links...

Anne - Fiona and Twig said...

Thank you so much Dawn for getting the word out!

People!!!
You simply MUST know the Boltons!
They have influenced your style more than you know. More, I dare say, than even Rachel Ashwell,I'd wager.

Let's start a petition to get them featured in a national mag again. It's past time. :-)

Hugs,
Anne

Rebecca said...

Hi Dawn
I have all of those in my folder for inspiration! Carol's style is unsurpassed, I was sorry when she closed down her shops. Only one left and it isn't near what it was.
Thanks for the reminder
Have a lovely day
Blessings
Rebecca

Well, you learn something new everyday! These gals are new to me also...wonder where my head was or what rock I was under?! but I *love* it! Thanks for more inspiration!

Stacey said...

Oh I love this post! I miss the days when they used to be featured on HGTV. Remember when they showed Rose Hicks in her little Fredricksburg cottage? I think it was on Country Style.

They are very talented women and so gracious.

Linda K. said...

Her use of Sepias, creams, tans and the textures of laces, crochet, and I can see tea stained gauzes and burlap would fit in with all this. Also some handmade sepia and cream roses, with tarnished silver. I love the opened displayed books! Feathers on the wall yummy! Right up our alley, dear Dawn.....

Linda

June said...
