H-Town Craigslist

Just before Christmas, I am going to be zipping down to Houston to decorate a house I discussed here months and months ago.  My “client” can’t resist a deal, so I couldn’t help but do a little poking around Houston’s Craigslist to see what I might be able to use.  I thought I would share with you to shake up my usual Denver Craigslist posts.

This would be a great breakfast nook set.   $575

I always love a Corbusier Lounge, probably won’t make its way to this project though $900

It looks like this could use a new cushion, the puffy down just isn’t working for me.  $700

Pretty 6′ diameter dining table  $350

Perhaps a fun chair for a kids bedroom.  $100

A rug for a kids bedroom  $100

Super cool coffee table.  $150

Gorgeous Swaim sofa (super good deal).  $550

Vintage office chair.  $250

Another breakfast nook table option.  $150

And another one.  $100

Coffee Table option 2.  $75

Some more fun chair options for kids rooms.  $100

For the entry hall or mud room.  $40

Kids bed #1  $75

Brand new Dwell Sofa (not sure this will make the cut).  $1300

Great sofa table.  $225

And, another breakfast nook option.  $300

Great tables  $99

Rockstar Dining Room Table  $200

Art Deco Bedroom Set

More kids beds.  $100 for 2

One more kids bed.  $300

Clearly, all this stuff won’t still be available when I make it to H-Town, but I am excited about the possibilities.  In reviewing the photos above, there is too much UT orange.  Lot’s of these options aren’t going to cut it in this A&M loving household.  Really, college alliances are going to affect design choices?

On a personal note, changes are afoot.  I will post details soon, but hopefully it will mean more regular blogging, more furniture fun and design projects.


About sanctuaryhome

The Sanctuary Home blog was created in May 2009 to augment my interior design business, Jamie Foley Interiors. Below is the design philosophy that guides my business and this blog. A beautiful house isn’t a home unless it speaks to its occupants and fits their lifestyle in appropriate and unique ways. I believe that design can be approached in two ways. The first is from the gut, what feels right. The second is from a logical methodical perspective. I design using the second approach. I feel that having a reason why a piece is selected, having similar elements in the room or throughout the home makes it feel unified even if the similarities are not obvious to the casual observer. It makes a home feel special and contemplative. Building the interior of a home is a process. I create a plan for investment pieces that will last a lifetime, filling in with less expensive, less important pieces that can be replaced when they wear out or look dated with additional investment pieces or of the moment trendy items that update the home. Using vintage or antique pieces with new grounds a home. If everything in a home is new, it feels like a model home, it has no soul. If you use all old pieces, if feels like you live in a garage sale. The beauty is in the mix. Creating timeless interiors involves using pieces from all design styles. It gives the home a layered look and allows a home to look as if the pieces have been acquired over time. Using furniture from all one style or period makes a home look fussy and intimidating. I look forward to working with clients with all budgets and design aesthetics to create a home that special to their family. I encourage clients to express their individuality throughout the entire design process, this ensures your home fits your needs and will delight you every time you walk through the door.
