Design Personality Quiz

August 20, 2021
Posted in , , ,

I was searching for new, fresh fabrics and wallcoverings today and came across something super fun. Harlequin has introduced their latest collection: HARLEQUIN COLOUR 1

I’m really excited about their #owntheroom approach because they have partnered with Professor Stephen Westland and Research Fellow Soojin Lee in their white paper, ‘Harlequin, to discuss a topic near and dear to my heart. In Harlequin, Professor Westland and Soojin Lee find that “there is convincing evidence that colour and light can affect our health and wellbeing and nowhere is this more important than in our homes”. As a former nurse turned Interior Designer, I couldn’t agree more, Professor!

“#OWNTHEROOM IS ALL ABOUT YOU. YOUR SPACE, YOUR STYLE, YOUR CHOICE.”

Harlequin believes that our best interiors are created when they reflect who we are. Unreservedly and unapologetically.

Based on the colour science (Harlequin White Paper), the Harlequin Own The Room Quiz, helps you crack your colour code, and create your perfect room.

I just love the work Harlequin put into this line and this project so I had to share it with you!

It’s Fall, Y’all!

Autumn has Arrived

It’s Fall, Y’all! And just like that, it’s upon us. As often happens in Texas, fall came suddenly this year. I can’t believe just last weekend we were out at the ranch enjoying rare 75-degree Texas days at the Ranch Party, and now suddenly it’s chilly this week.

Time to bring out all the comfy, cozy stuff and snuggle up with loved ones. I ADORE this time of year!

I’ve thrown together a few of my favorite items to help you create the perfect day in front of the fire, reading your favorite book, before you go take a long walk In the falling leaves. SWOON! What a perfect autumn day.

Check it out!

Original oil painting and lighting with beautiful patina

Cashmere pillow and big, comfy chair

Mindi wood sculptural side table and snuggly Mohair throw

Handwoven textured pouf and a giant Australian sheepskin rug

Of course I couldn’t resist adding two final things I love.

I have this book and I’m smitten with it. Since we’re going to build a modern cabin out at the ranch one day, I’m obsessed with all things cabin-related. This book is awesome. Also, check out one of my favorite Dallas based architects, Bentley Tibbs. Not only is he super talented, he’s also just a great guy to work with.

Get it Here Get it Here

And my very last Fall, Y’all thing is this adorable mug for your warm beverage. Some of you might think it reads P-U-M-P-K-I-N, but those of us from the South know that’s actually pronounced “pun’kin” and can refer to an orange winter squash, pie filling, or to a person you love.

Happy Fall, Y’all! Stay cozy, my friends!

Living this [Ranch] Life!

October 21, 2020

.

You guys know I’m all about LIVING THIS LIFE and making the most of every moment, which hasn’t been terribly easy this crazy, crazy year. Dear Lord baby Jesus knows we’ve had to seek our peace and happiness wherever we could find it these last many months.

In church last weekend our pastor preached about the importance of connection and having the kind of friends who would “sit around your campfire with you”. I am so very thankful to say I have a great freinds who will both sit around my campfire with me, and also dance in the moonlight with me! What would I do without these wonderful people?

Since we so love our staycations at the ranch, we decided we should share our joy with our pals and host the first ever #wingsout #bootson #danceinthemoonlight

Ranch Party!

Alane Beard Design Ranch Party-
Friends in Low Places

Every year in Fall I travel with my dear friend, Christy, on a grand junkin’ adventure in search of vintage treasure for my home and for my shop. We love the change of seasons and we love leaf peepin’! Since junkin’ hasn’t really been an option this year, it was awesome to get my fall fix with Christy at the ranch party instead. It was nice to be away from Dallas enjoying the countryside with our WINGS OUT and our BOOTS ON!

We had a firepit

and puppies

and dancing!

Alane Beard Design Ranch Life Vintage Tabletop

Of course we had to eat BBQ. I mean, we were on a ranch in Texas after all! But I couldn’t resist using mismatched vintage melamine dinner plates and midcentury flatware with wooden handles. I added some vintage cloth napkins from Etsy, a burlap table cloth topped with a cheap old scarf from a London junk shop, along with vintage gold anodized aluminum tumblers. And the wildflowers in the vase as well as the citrus fruit filling the bowl in the middle came from our very own Flying Dragon Bitter Orange trees that grow everywhere on the property. They smell heavenly!!!

Crowd  Favorites – Shop the Look

Everyone went nuts over these multi-purpose stump stools (a best seller in my store). We used them for foot stools, side tables, extra seating, even for tiny snack tables when lounging on the rugs.

We tossed down a tarp and then added rugs & pillows on top. Everyone lounged on these when we played cards and enjoyed the sounds of the country night.

It got a bit chilly after the sun went down and these super soft Alpaca throws were the perfect weight to keep us all cozy by the fire!

All in all it was a great weekend living this ranch life with great friends and family I love dearly! Can’t wait to do it again!

 

By the way, most of the photo credit here goes to my uber talented daughter, who happens to be a photographer, Ainsley Beard. Aren’t I lucky?
