I hope everyone had a good long weekend! I think I have finally caught up from the trip and today is the first day I really feel like I am starting to get back into the swing of things. Our parents’ vacation was followed by two big birthday celebrations for our daughter, and tack on the long, lazy weekend soaking up the last days of summer and it felt like a triple whamie in our house. School starts this Friday and I’d be lying if I said I wan’t a little excited. Over the weekend, I was looking for interior inspiration and stumbled upon the home of Dana and David Porter, featured in the February/March 2013 issue of Traditional Home. The exterior’s Georgian architectural design and warm, neutral tones create the ultimate curbside appeal and the interior, designed by Joseph Minton, echoes the colors of the sea and combines various textures and shades of blue and white (with pops of green) to create a coastal chinoiserie chic feel in a stately Dallas home.
I hope you enjoy this gorgeous house as much as I did, each room is prettier then the next! If you want to see more of the Porter residence, you can read the full article from the February/March 2012 Traditional Home article here.
