The other day I posted photos of an historic home for sale in Fredericksburg, TX. Fredericksburg is a popular Hill Country retreat for people seeking solace, antiques and a little German flavor. Many people from urban areas like Houston, Austin, and Dallas purchase weekend homes in Fredericksburg, as there are home decor stores, antique shops and interesting historic sites.
This 19th century home was purchased by a Houston couple. All pics are from CountryLiving.com.
You can tell by the photos that the couple opted to leave the home in much of its original state. That's pretty common in Fredericksburg. Fredericksburg designer Carol Hicks Bolton has a style that's all about vintage, antique and tea-stained fabrics and finishes. Her brother-in-law is a decorative painter, who's known for his antique paint finishes. Here's a small sample he did for Home Companion.
As much as I love vignettes, I'm more of a big picture gal, and I really would have loved to see room views of this interesting Fredericksburg home. What about you?
