Jennifer Egglestone House Tour

Rainy morning again here in Rio. And today interior designer Jennifer Eggleston lets us step into her 1920s farmhouse in Fredericksburg, Texas. I have featured one or two of these photographs in previous posts but it's nice to see all the rooms of the house in a single post. Within a carefree style, an understated palette, lots of wood and white, reclaimed furniture and vintage items make each room soothing and pleasing to the eye.

Simple lines and beautiful pine floors.

"I gave the house an urban country look," says Jennifer, "because I like to mix industrial textures such as metal with soft, upholstered country pieces."

The seemingly random arrangement of black-and-white-framed nature photographs and prints that surrounds a vintage train-station sign took Jennifer a long time to get just right.

Jennifer paired metal reproduction French bistro chairs with a black oak pedestal table topped with a vintage iron candelabra. To soften the hard surfaces she added a 1920s needlepoint rug.

Texas long-leaf pine floors and wood moldings create a stunning canvas.

"People frequently think that I'm nuts to have so much white," she explains. "But it's so much easier than color and pattern. We just toss everything into the wash when we need to."

More photographs right here.
