FOUND & FAVORITE FOR FALL IN DENVER

Even with all of the excitement and prep work we've been doing for Old Glory Texas, we haven't forgotten about Old Glory Denver! With the new season just around the corner, we have been getting ready for cooler weather and warmer decorating. It's the season for well-worn wooden tables for family gatherings, for old and beautiful but practical cabinets for the home nesting season to come, and for inviting upholstered pieces for making any room welcoming and warm. It might still be in the 80s this week in Denver, but that won't stop us from looking forward to getting our houses ready for falling leaves and yes, even falling snow. 

Here are a few of our favorite new (old) pieces and spots in the store from our latest loads and shopping trips. Come by and see us on South Broadway, Wednesday - Saturday from 10 am to 4 pm and let us help you welcome in a new season at home!

A Re-Introduction to Old Glory TEXAS!

From canvas and paint to brick and mortar, our vision has become a reality: Old Glory Style is opening in Round Top! From design to construction, we have been so lucky to work with such creative and hardworking people in Round Top to help make this happen. Check back soon to read all about our friends, partners, and collaborators who have helped us so much in Texas, but special thanks to Holly Mathis and Lewis Tindall for helping us make this happen. 

TEXAS ROOTS

Texas has always had a special place in my heart. It’s a love story that began in 1961, long before I fell in love with the tiny town of Round Top. I lived in Texas as a child and learned all about life and love in this great state. My mother taught me a strong and nurturing love of home—she kept a happy home and always made sure it was functional and still beautiful. My father led by example and taught me to work hard every single day at something worth doing. My older sister taught me to be my own person, always try new things, and think outside the box. And the addition of a baby brother made our life in Texas even brighter.

With each trip to Texas I am flooded with memories and lessons from a Texas childhood. I am so happy and grateful that I have such a strong foundation for a business I love and for what Old Glory has become. Texas is a place where I am inspired, energized, supported, and completely immersed in my craft. My business brought me back to Texas, and I feel like I’ve come home.
 

A NEW ADVENTURE FOR OLD GLORY TEXAS

I loved our dance-hall-turned-shop home in Burton and popping up shop twice a year for Antiques Week, but I am excited about our next chapter: our very own, built-from-scratch Old Glory Texas headquarters right in the heart of Round Top.

When Washington Square Park in Round Top became available for sale last year, I knew it was the perfect spot for Old Glory Texas, a 4,000 square foot blank canvas to make my creative vision for Old Glory Style come alive for Antiques Week and beyond. I can’t wait to be a permanent part of the Round Top community and share Old Glory’s signature mix of authenticity, sophistication, and function with my own unique touch.

I guess you can take the girl out of Texas, but you can’t take Texas out of the girl—I am so happy to return to my Texas roots and be able to call Texas home again. Here are some photos of our work in progress and behind-the-scenes shots of our big Round Top project!

FIND US THIS FALL IN ROUND TOP

While our store will not be ready for full-time operation until mid-October, we will be hosting an open house during Fall Antiques Week. And we are so excited to have Kim Leggett of City Farmhouse join us during our First Look for a book signing! Her beautiful new book, City Farmhouse Style, came out yesterday and we are so happy to have her there to sign copies and to help us celebrate our new store.

They're here! We have been poring over Becki Griffin's beautiful photos of the store from last week, and here are a few of our favorites. We are so excited to welcome in May in the store and we have been arranging, rearranging, and rearranging some more to bring in the new month. Thank you again to Becki for the photos and for capturing Old Glory Style so beautifully and creatively!

Creative Collaboration: beautiful photography from curious details

You know that feeling when you meet someone for the first time and you just click? That's how I felt when I met creative genius Becki Griffin. Founder of Creative Details, Becki is a talented photographer and stylist out of Houston, Texas. She is smart, funny, and fun to be around. And her photography is beautiful!

This past weekend we enjoyed our third annual photoshoot at Old Glory Denver with Becki, and I was so happy to have her in town to take beautiful photos of the store and offer endless styling inspiration and hard-working laughter. Since we met in Texas four years ago in the heat and excitement of Round Top, Becki has been a great addition to the Old Glory team as a collaborator and friend. People ask me, "What is Old Glory Style?" What I have a hard time putting into works, Becki captures effortless in her photography. She just "gets" Old Glory Style and makes it come to life in her beautiful shots. We are so happy to be able to work with her, and this past weekend was another productive and inspiring visit.

You can see Becki's styling, decorating, and photographic work in her portfolio here, and be sure and check out her blog too. Here are a few of our favorite of Becki's photos from past trips and collaborations, and we can't wait to share the photos from her latest trip to Denver soon!
