Your Favorites: Luella & June

Today I am HONORED to be sharing one of the most gorgeous homes I've seen yet! Bradley of the amazing blog, Luella & June is sharing her abode with us TTS readers today, and wow, we are in for a treat. I'm pretty sure this is the kind of girly home every girl dreams of. On top of this stunning home, Bradley has got some serious style. If for some crazy reason you haven't seen her blog, go, run, look immediately (after reading this post).


Favorite Piece of Furniture:
The couch in my living room is probably my very favorite. This couch has had so many lives. My mom originally found it on the curb at a garage sale. She purchased it for nearly nothing and recovered it in a cheetah print (we like to refer to it as a "cheetah nightmare" now) for our playroom growing up. When I moved out I took it with me, and Beth Dotolo of Pulp Design Studios recovered it in this beautiful gray fabric finished off with a white vinyl lining. It's a pull-out couch, too, so it's very functional. This couch has come a long way, hasn't it? It's a great reminder that there are some serious treasures lurking at those garage sales!

Favorite Piece of Art: 
My favorite pieces of art are these Prada Marfa photographs. The installation is definitely something to see if you're ever in Marfa, Texas. Not only are these photographs special because they were taken in my home state, but the photographer, Gray Malin, and I went to high school together. (These just came back from the framer which explains why they haven't been hung yet! I'm living with them for a little while before I figure out just the right place for them.) 


Favorite Textile:
This is the easiest question so far. The vintage Pucci print in my living room! I found this fabric while browsing through a vintage store in Dallas with my mother. This is actually the fabric that was used to make the Braniff Airline flight attendant uniforms in the late 1960's. The owner had the leftover spools, and I bought them right on the spot. I've always been a Pucci devotee, but the story behind this fabric makes it that much better. 


Favorite Room:
This is my bedroom. It's very "me," and it holds all of my favorite things. It's a great space and offers lots of natural light. The walls are bright white (I think white walls looks so fresh) accented by plenty of color. I really love coming home to this cozy little room. 


 
Favorite Misc. Item: 
I couldn't pick just one here, so you're getting my favorite two. I found this pair of lamps (which sit in my living room) at a thrift store in Austin, Texas. It was love at first sight with these. All they needed was a good cleaning and new lampshades. The turquoise and gold combination remind me of Waylande Gregory's designs. I think these might be one of my best thrift store finds to date.
My second favorite is this little heart chair. My mom got it for me in college. It's teeny, but really the perfect size for the corner of my bedroom. I don't sit in it very often, but the heart-shaped back makes me think of my mom every time I look at it.
