This month we are simply thrilled to be included in the lush pages of the November/December issue of Veranda magazine. Editor-in-chief, Clint Smith, came on board this elegant shelter publication about two years ago and ours was among one of the first homes he selected to be photographed for their pages.
In the last two years Clint has brought such a wonderfully inspiring array of homes to this venerable magazine. I love the diversity of designers, projects, and people he's included in each and every issue, bringing that elusive aspirational beauty back to the book. We're grateful to Clint that he felt the home I share with my husband William Zeitz was worthy of inclusion, too.
The process was such fun. As a longtime contributing editor to PaperCity magazine who has written and styled many homes alongside terrifically talented photographers from Texas and around the nation, it was neat to be the subject, watch and learn how their talented team pulled together and propped every shot. Remarkable!
We worked with the incredible team at David Brown Flowers in Houston. I'm fortunate enough to call David a great friend and lucky for us, he knows William and I well and how we live, making it easy for him to pull off floral designs that are true to our spirit and style. Fresh flowers are magical and in his hands they simply elevate and transform a space.
It was nothing short of kismet when the powers-that-be at Veranda assigned photographer Tria Giovan to shoot the piece and Rob Brinkley to write it. Tria and I had worked together for nearly a decade capturing images of beautiful homes all over Texas (mostly in Houston), while Rob Brinkley was my colleague at PC in Dallas and co-writer with myself and Holly Moore of our book, Domestic Art (Assouline, 2008). Both are highly respected pros in their fields, contributing monthly to national home magazines. Working with each of them was like coming home again, letting go of any apprehension knowing I was in trust worthy hands.
Thank you Clint Smith, David Brown, Gail Rubin and Mia Wittern (who both diligently work to spread the word about C + K each month), Rob Brinkley, Tria Giovan, my darling husband William and supportive sister and co-founder, Lizbeth King.

For years, long before we pinned wise words spoken by some enlightened someone, I jotted those inspiring words uttered by another–past or present– in a quote journal. Today, as technology gives us a digital journal of sorts (Pinterest), I've combed the site to share a few quotes I find intriguing. At least for this moment in [...]
