It’s a well known fact that we are die-hard fans of Round Top, Texas. We make the trip every Spring and Fall, along with every other Texan and creative junkie to experience Antique Week. It’s a magical place and one of our happiest places to visit as it is an inspiration mecca. Fields upon fields, tents upon tents, filled with treasures with their own stories just waiting to be reborn and retold. So, when our good friends at The Vintage Round Top invited us to a social luncheon to meet and connect with the beautiful faces behind the legendary antique week and creatives alike – we could hardly resist!
Held at the iconic Texas bistro, Royers Cafe “home of the Pie Man”, the whole afternoon and experience was tailored to reflect the atmosphere this creative bubble has worked hard to establish. From the local organic centerpieces to the hand-dyed tablecloths; it was friendly, comfortable and colorful just like the people of “Roundtopolis”. But, what is it that makes this sprawling countryside so appealing? The ladies of the Round Top Register described it best – “where the creatives gather for the thrill of the hunt!” Entrepreneur and Trend-setter Courtney Barton of Mela + Roam spoke more on the drive of a creative. “Everyone is authentic to who they are,” Barton said. “Get to know the people behind the product and what they’re selling.” That afternoon we discovered a room full of women, more alike than different – mothers, wives, business owners, trend-setters, stylists and artists – passionate about their craft and their clients, very similar to the heart of our own company. We didn’t think it was possible but in that country pie store, we fell even more in love with Round Top.
But it wouldn’t be an official trip to Round Top without visiting our favorite B&B and vacation home – The Vintage Round Top. It is the most chic, comfortable and conventionally located accommodations on Hwy 237. Owners, Paige and Smoot Hull, initially purchased and renovated the farmhouse as a creative outlet and family vacation getaway, but got much more than they bargained for. They have made their dream into a reality, and their mission is focused on helping other young artisans to nurture their own creativity into business ventures. We love this power couple and we love what they have created. Stylish lodging featuring modern clean lines, re-purposed vintage furniture and a home away from home that marries style, sustainability and soul. The perfect retreat for an anniversary, honeymoon, girls weekend, rehearsal dinner and more! See more of the space and the stunning decor on the VRT website, or see it person and book your stay now! Stay tuned for a collaborative project with VRT this fall!
A special thank you to The Vintage Round Top and the Round Top Register for hosting this special luncheon!
