Garden & Gun: The Southern Agenda (October 2015)

Kim Leggett has a keen eye for a particular sort of trash turned treasure that draws droves of shoppers to her chic store, City Farmhouse, in Franklin, where she sells everything from twelve-foot farm tables to repurposed lighting to antique spittoons and restored bicycles. Over the past two years, Leggett’s annual City Farmhouse Pop-up Fairs have attracted thousands of eager pickers to her neck of the Tennessee woods, in search of stylishly worn pieces similar to the ones she finds for private clients such as Sheryl Crow and Ralph Lauren. This year, she’s added fall and winter dates to follow her successful spring one. The upcoming autumn show (October 16–17) will take place on the grounds of the 17,000-square-foot mansion of the late music publisher Buddy Killen in nearby Leiper’s Fork. Vendors from almost twenty states will fill the spacious property with a range of decorative pieces for home and garden, as well as handmade jewelry and clothing. Come with plenty of spare time—and a pickup truck.—cityfarmhousefranklin.com

Country Living: The Decorating Almanac [September 2015]

Have you guys picked up the new September 2015 issue of Country Living magazine?

It’s the HOW-TO ISSUE -- secrets to doing everything better, from picking paint colors to kitchen cabinet upgrades to nine different ways to arrange my favorite -- subway tile!

A few months ago, one of the editors contacted me about contributing to the 2015 Country Living Almanac, to which I ecstatically replied "YES!" We just happened to be in Florida at the time, so I had a beautiful ocean view for inspiration. The center section of the magazine is where you’ll find the scoop.

I think you’ll love the "Yardage Forecaster." How many times have you wondered just how much fabric to buy for that upholstery job? This section explains it all with photos of various styles of sofas, chairs, pillows, table clothes, ottomans, table skirts -- even odd pieces like covered headboards, porch swings, sink curtains, hammocks, and lamp shades. You can even get the yardage for building a play tepee (in case you can’t wait to get the magazine to find out, it’s 6-8 yards!).

Country Living was kind enough to credit us on the editor's page, too. Thanks CL!


Country Living: Blogger-Designed Cabin (September 2015)

Take a sneak peek at the two-bedroom, one-bath house below, and get the rest of the tour here.

This Old Home: A Carefree 1920s Cottage

Just this week we received shoutouts in This Old House magazine: they published a house tour in their magazine of a 1920s cottage, and "a designer with an eye for a find [that] gives her humble house a clean and pretty look."  

That featured designer and homeowner is Lizzie McGraw, a friend of ours who was headed back to California from a design job in New York City when she stopped at our downtown Franklin store! She bought an antique light fixture, an old Turkey Trot sign--that I really can't believe we parted with--and a vintage chest of drawers. She was such a sweetheart to make sure that we were mentioned in the article (thanks so much Lizzie)!
