New House fun with Sue Whitney, JunkMarket Style

We've been fortunate to host Sue Whitney, author and public speaker on JunkMarket style -- the essence of reuse, repurpose, recycle and elegant/fun and funky decorating.

We're finishing out the home on 707 Live Oak, yes in the coveted 78704 zip code here in Austin, Texas. Walking through the dust, the tape, the dropcloths, etc., she gave us some terrific ideas for unexpected touches in this place we are creating using local artisans (cabinetry, plasterers, stained glass makers and trim carpenter to name a few)...

The kitchen is AMAZING ... where we'll implement a couple of her surprises that will complement this home that combines contemporary with classic and cottage cues for a cozy, homey feel.
