AROUND MY HOME: ANDIE & RUSS


AROUND MY HOME-ANDIEandRUSS

We've been wanting to shoot Andie's house ever since we step foot in it. It's right down the street from us and right in the heart of Montrose. Kelly and I have been over and every time Andie is the perfect host. I mean, we have had themed nights like Troop Beverly Hills, Bachlorette night, (yes the show), an Engagement party (her and Russ are getting married this year), or just for a hang, and every time you feel so welcome and leave with a full belly. Lately they have both been busy at work preparing it for when Russ moves in and it becomes their home, wish it was my home.
So here we show you the home of two geniuses. Good people. Love them.

I try to go to every art fair and art festival that comes into town and will buy my favorite thing that I can afford. Its a great way to fill your home with unique pieces that will always have some story behind them. These glass balls are from the Bayou City Art Fest a couple years ago.

The vase came from my parent's as well. It has broken in pieces several times and I'm pretty sure only Love is holding it together at this point.

I am a scientist that masquerades as a Mid-Century modern design expert. I can't get enough of it.

The longhorn I bought at a craft store and was going to paint it gold as a gift to my fiancee- who is a Longhorn. The painting project failed, so I covered it in glitter instead. Glitter solves all problems.

I just fell in love with this home! I don't know how you did it, but it is pure elegance and beauty. I love how you mixed a classic and conservative look with detailed modernity and schick!
