Texas Living (roll tide)

This past weekend we went to Texas for the Alabama vs. Texas A & M game.  The game was absolutely exhausting but wonderful.  So thrilled that we had the chance to go.  Nothing like watching Alabama win such a big game.  While there, we got to stay with some friends on their ranch.  It was so inspiring for me to be surrounded by Texan architecture. I loved the earth tones and the use of rock/stone.  Also, its true that everything is bigger in Texas.  The large scale of the architecture (high ceilings and big windows) made a statement in the Lonestar state.

Below are pictures from an awesome Texas home designed by P. Joe Shaffer and architect Don B. McDonald.  I like this project because it illustrates that a rustic ranch house can be simple and soft.  I'd like to imitate some of these elements in some of our projects-- wood planks, iron beds, wood beams, and pretty much everything about this kitchen.
