Last week my aunt emailed me the most fabulous, colorful kitchen link, and I instantly went looking for more pictures of that glorious house! Turns out, it belongs to Jane McGarry, a longtime news anchor in Dallas. I found her spread in a back issue of D Magazine.
After a trip to Italy, she was inspired by the country houses of Sardinia, and designer Ken Blasingame helped her bring some of it back to her home in Ft. Worth, Texas. Clearly she crushes on color, since her front door is a punchy lime green!
In the dining room, a 17th-century Spanish mirror complements an Italian chandelier from the Pittet Company. Pottery by Gorky Gonzalez hails from Guanajuato, Mexico. Gold Majorcan chairs are from Orion.
The breakfast nook is the perfect place to start the day on a cheery note. It boasts a round wooden table, painted French chairs, and a Mexican chandelier. The wooden cabinet—a trastero—showcases a collection of Mexican ceramics from the 19th century.
The Entrance Hall table is covered in a 19th-century Mexican textile. The table holds her collection of antique silver. The door surrounds are faux bois!
The master bedroom features a 19th-century Italian macramé bedspread on a bed designed by Ken Blasingame.
Outdoor entertaining takes on a decidedly international feel in a setting complete with a Uzbekistan dowry cloth on an aged wood table.
