My Loft Looks

Like every room in my house, the loft has undergone some mighty changes these last couple years. Here are some of my all time favorite loft looks!! One of my favorite large pieces of furniture in the studio is a vintage daybed I found at Again and Again in the Dallas Design District. I use it to style every single day. Here’s a look from a while back that shows just how versatile this beautiful piece is. I shoot in every corner of my house and I really try to make use of the space I have. Here is a diagram/blueprint of …

SHOP ATLANTIS HOME!!

Shop Atlantis Home is now open! I am so thrilled to be sharing my beautiful, bohemian home goods with you. This collection includes pillows and throws from Guatemala, bedding and serape’s from Mexico, and accessories and rugs from my own vintage findings. I’ve styled the pillows on Shop Atlantis Home into my living room so you can see how they add vibrant pops of color to any room. Here, I’ve styled some of our larger pillows as floor cushions to add more seating in my space. The Patchwork Throw and Indigo Bedding works perfectly on the day bed for a layered look. …

Muy Bonita!

I have been collecting papyrus paintings from Guatemala and Mexico for some time.  While sifting through stacks of these beautiful papers in Mexico City over Easter, a lightbulb went off!  Why not cover an entire wall with these crazy, beautiful paintings?  I purchased enough to cover one wall in my guest bedroom.  And, voila!  Gualpaper! It was super easy to do, and took a little over an hour.  I used a staple gun and an Exacto knife for precise sizing. You can even get brown staples for your stable gun.  Below is a closeup of one of the paintings. I …

Dino DIY

I absolutely love it when my two favorite worlds collide!  Take thrift store art and plastic dinosaurs. Two of my favorite things.  I’ve been dying to create some whimsical art using thrifted landscape paintings and plastic dinos.  I think this project is a great idea for a child’s room or even  teenager’s. I even ended up using one in my kitchen! To create this look, I hit two thrift stores and two local antique malls to collect all of the art. I kept all paintings under thirty dollars. There are only four components necessary.  Thrifted art, plastic toys, a glue …

Perfect French Toast

I love making french toast! I used to make it all the time when my girls were smaller.  I was feeling nostalgic this week and whipped up a batch.  I really think I have crafted the perfect french toast recipe!  Stale bread is truly the secret! Perfect French Toast stale french baguette (I like the really thin ones, they make perfect little french toast medallions, and you can cook up about 8 at a time in a decent sized skillet) 2 eggs 1/2  to 3/4 cup whole milk 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon dash of vanilla extract Slice the baguette on the …

It’s no secret that I have a textile addiction, and my love of antique textiles has no limits!  ABC Carpet & Home has an amazing selection of their Antique Rugs on sale now!

This Antique Khotan wool rug in rich blue features …

DREAMING OF MEXICO

Oh wow!! My second blog post!!! I recently returned from Mexico.  While I was there, I visited Puebla and Oaxaca.  Along the way, I purchased many traditional Mexican textiles, and even tried a little moonshine Mescal.  I couldn’t wait to get home and try all of these beautiful fabrics in my own home. The Mexican textiles are very earthy, and homey.  Exactly what I have been in the mood for recently. They have a great modern bohemian vibe. I bought a lot!!!  I have always loved the floral embroidered pillows from Mexico. (my headboards are vintage Mexican) This is a …

I’m back to blogging

Hi Guys, I sure have missed everyone!!   A lot has happened and I have much to share with you.  Still have a pack of dogs, and I am still helping Jane with Sea of Shoes (which is why I have a hard time blogging).   I hope some of you are following me on Instagram @atlantishome. Just a really quick post today–I just redid Carol’s bedroom into the guest room because she has moved out on her own.   I miss her terribly.   I hope to be back to blogging regularly–at least two or three times a week.  I …
