Dallas Market is this week and what a great show! We found a few new vendors, and have seen beautiful products from our go-to showrooms as well. Currently I am loving the playful company Cardboard Safari. What a fun way to incorporate animals into a little boys bedroom or a children's play space! They even have an ENORMOUS "Tex" cardboard longhorn that spans about 8 feet wide... and we are proud to have BIG TEX as the newest addition to JMI :) Keep your eyes peeled for this funky product in our new shop (opening September) J. McIntyre HOME.

JMI is excited to have a new client in BEAUTIFUL CHARLOTTE, NC! We visited with this home-owner during our trip to High Point and have just started designing for their fabulous residence. If you live outside the DFW area, don't hesitate to call! Have designs, will travel.

Ever since I saw Monique Lhuillier's home featured on the Jan/Feb 2008 cover of Elle Decor, I have been fascinated with petrified wood. The melted smooth top of grays and whites, combined with the rough outer shell of that side table... LOVE IT! I cannot wait to one day find a beautiful piece to fit the perfect place in my home. If you go after this updated au-naturale look, you better decide where it will go because these stumps (stools) and slabs (table tops) of stone can weigh a TON.
My local go-to spot for checking out the beauty of this wood-turned-stone is Dallas' Big Mango Trading Co. on Riverfront Boulevard. They have some amazing pieces! Check out the items below that we found from some online sources...

Bunny Williams is an amazing woman in design. Her book, An Affair with a House is on the must-have list for anyone who loves to feel at home in their home. I was lucky enough to bump into her at her new High Point showroom this spring... in addition to being a talented designer who has recently launched her own line, she is the NICEST woman!
The new home furniture and accessories line is named Beeline Home and we love it!!! This is perfect timing for JMI to have picked up new clientele... a young Dallas couple that has a thing for tradition. Bunny, we'll be calling soon!
