We never thought we would have a second home in Asheville, North Carolina – but since we do
we decided to downsize a bit here in Oklahoma City. A quick close on our last house
necessitated a quick search in our favorite neighborhood. Lucky for us there was a house on the
market designed by our favorite architect. We really didn’t need to go inside the house because
we knew we could change whatever we didn’t like about it…and really all we ended up changing
were the finishes – out with the brown and in with the chalky white. We built a few things the
way we like them – a large island with built-in wine coolers, more storage for our dishes and
some cool art TV cabinets to hide the ugly but must-have large flat screen TVs.

We actually built the home we are now lucky to call home a few years ago…but we didn’t build it for ourselves – we built it as our first and one and only spec house. We sold the house very quickly to a wonderful client – but after a few years the house came on the market for sale…and with a twist of fate we became the lucky buyers.

Blue and white pottery and porcelain dates back to the 14th century. I love it all whether it’s the classic Delft Blue from Holland or the Chinese export ware and everything in between. It’s been interesting over the past few months to see it used as major color schemes in so many beautiful interiors. It never goes out of style…a testament to using the classics.
