She and my SIL have mounted a search for Salterini, but they were having a few friends and their kids over yesterday and needed something for people to sit on in the meantime. After looking online in all the usual places, she decided to give Craigslist a shot and found a set of six vintage inspired stackable chairs that suited her needs perfectly.
We drove to Dallas to pick them up, and when we pulled into the driveway of the sellers' home, we practically chimed in unison, "This is an adorable house!" My daughter had been emailing and texting with husband Greg, and when we met his wife Chantal, she turned out to be vivacious and just as friendly as he was.
We were so impressed with the house that we asked if we could photograph it for my blog, and Chantal graciously allowed us to get several shots. Just look at the beautiful color scheme and the fabulous details...metal edging around their flower beds, trio of cactus planters and decorative concrete wall. Don't you love the slatted treatment on the end of the house and the slatted faux shutters? Absolutely brilliant design elements!

A huge thanks to Chantal and Greg for allowing us to photograph their home with no notice at all. What good sports they were! I wish the light had been more conducive to taking photos, but even with the late afternoon Texas sun creating bright spots and deep shade, you can still see the beauty of this thoughtfully restored home shining through.
