Old Glory Antiques Denver

My spring work season has been a busy one, just like I like it.  A nice big flurry of projects before the slower days of summer.

I recently made my 3rd annual trip up to Denver to photograph Old Glory Antiques for owner Holly Kuhn. Spring has officially sprung in Denver!

Holly's style is hands down one of my favorites. She mixes beautiful American antiques with large scale art and just the right amount of accessories so that one isn't visually overwhelmed and can easily envision how each piece might work in their own home.

The fun starts at the front door with these whimsical glass vessels displaying vintage silverware. How many great ideas are running through your mind of how to play with these? I especially love them on that gorgeous farm table.

Holly keeps a great selection of custom chairs, many one of a kind, with beautiful fabric details.

As a stylist, you can only image how I go a little bonkers over the accessories at Old Glory. A little patina, a little texture and that collected over time look, hits just the right note.

Inventory moves fast at high altitude so checking in often is the best way to get that special piece before it's gone. 

Like this absolutely delicious little console in the perfect shade of french bleu:

This trip was made even better because I teamed up with my friend and colleague Holly Mathis to also work on a little side project while we were there.

Old Glory Antiques owners, Holly and Brian Kuhn, recently moved to a beautiful new home and invited Holly and me to come for a quick fluffing session ahead of her son's upcoming wedding. The Kuhns had just moved in two weeks prior and were to be hosting extended family so we kicked it into high gear and fluffed guest bedrooms and living spaces. 

Full reveal to come as Holly and Brian settle in, but I did snap a couple of styling shots with my phone before we high-tailed it back to Texas:

The biggest and best news I have to share is that Old Glory Antiques is coming back to Texas! I don't think I've been this excited about a store opening in a very long time. Old Glory Antiques is currently under construction in Round Top with Holly Mathis working on the details locally while Holly Kuhn is holding down the fort in Denver and gathering the inventory for the Texas store. The exact opening date is still to be determined and as soon as I hear something solid I'll shout it out. 

You guys...it's going to be so good. As soon as I get the "ok" I'll share a few sneak peeks of the inventory. 

Until then, if you're in Denver stop by Old Glory at 1930 S. Broadway.

H.A.S Bins

I have a really fun local event to share with you! Three wonderful lady friends have put together a Pop Up Shop of antiques and decor. I got a sneak peek this morning and it was so good!!! 

The concept sounds really fun.  The plan is for HAS Bins to open every month or so with new antique and vintage finds. The sale is located in the big pretty living room of one of the ladies homes and it feels like a petite indoor flea market. Isn't the name so cute? It's the first initial of each of the ladies names and they also "has bins" to sell...lol.  They're a fun bunch and you'll love shopping with them. 

If you can't make it to this pop up, follow H.A.S Bins on

Facebook

 for their next event which will be in November, just in time for Christmas shopping.

Thanks for letting me in early ladies...I love the goodies I got this morning!!! 

Round Top Antique Week Fall Shows 2012


Who's going?    Who's never been?   Who has it on their bucket list?  Who wants more information about what it is and how to best navigate the miles of tents, barns and pastures that make up this wonderful bi-annual event that makes up Round Top/Warrenton/Margurger Farm and the many other shows that are Antique Week?

I get asked about Round Top all the time and even though I've gone to the shows for years, it's almost impossible to describe how big it is and how it works.Wanna know how big it is? Well, I always say it's three weeks big.

 It would be nearly impossible to see it all. New shows and venues are being added every show and it's grown exponentially since it began. Here's the biggest insider secret I can share with you....it's happening right now. No matter what any schedule you are looking at says, if you get in your car right now and head that way you will get to do some shopping. If there's a specific show you like, check the schedules (info below) and plan your trip for that day.

These images are from my trip to Antique Week earlier this year for the spring shows:
