hauthaus: out and about

November 18, 2010

This week we popped in to Hunt & Gather on 50th and Xerxes in Edina to see what fun, new things we could find…

Holly spotted some lovely cat eye glasses and a vintage leopard print hat and just had to model them!  What fun!
I found these classic tin thermos lunch boxes. (One of them even had a shoulder harness!)  Oh, how they made me long for warmer weather and picnics in the park!

spring is in the air

April 8, 2010

Spring is in the air and you know what that means… the birds start chirping at a very early hour, gardens and nurseries are starting to pop up in parking lots with spring blooms and veggies, and the ASID designers are scurrying to get the finishing touches in order for the ASID Showcase House.

 But guess what?  This year there are TWO showcase houses!  That’s right – you get TWO beautiful home tours for the price of ONE ticket!!

One home is a condo located on Lake Calhoun, and the other is a turn-of-the-century home on Lake of the Isles.

For info, tickets, and a peek at the progress thus far click on this link:


Holly and I are working on the Lake of the Isles home owned by world traveller and author, Dan Beuttner. We are designing the front porch. It will be smart, delightful, and inspired. We hope to see you there during the tour!

more updates on the ASID showcase house to come…
