Another Field Trip Find: Savvy and Sensational!


Here’s another Becky and Sheri field trip find.  This is another one of those wonderful shops we women love to stumble onto and meander our way through – gawking, somewhat wonderstruck, at every little thing.  You ladies know what I mean!  This shop is a unique combination of traditional, contemporary, funk, farm style…you name it.  It’s filled with lots of fun styles and color combinations that you might not ordinarily consider.  It’s called Mary Cates and Co. and it’s located at 5015 Lovers Lane in Dallas right by our other field trip finds.  Sorry, no website for her at the moment.  But, take a look at some of the beautiful things she has in her shop.



I love the fun colors against the black headboard and soft gray walls.  It just makes them pop with fun and positivity.  A happy place with happy colors!



Isn’t this a great look?  The cool farm table with the iron chairs on one side and the traditional upholstered piece on the other.  And the simple row of cactus (cacti?) looks clean and understated, yet provides lots of interest with its unique look.  Combining all these textures make this a fun and inviting eating area.



A great way to display dishes.  Wish I had a wall in my kitchen big enough to have a piece like this!  The simplicity of the white against the gray looks clean and modern giving the traditional cupboard a fresh, new look.



Distressed Blue Hutch

This is a fun finish for a hutch…… distressed cerulean blue.  Adding the bronzy brown accessories makes it even more interesting.


Updated Antique Settee

 This antique settee looks fresh and “chic” with its yummy fabrics and pillows.  The “antiquesh” gold ormolu framing gives it a hip quality.  When these curves are paired with the harlequin shaped mirror and clunky iron sconces it gives it a feeling of funk and glam at the same time.


Crisp White Bedding With Browns and Blues

I love the crisp white bedding paired with rich, dark chocolate and blue.  Notice the wonderful screen behind the bed and great light fixture?



More yummy bedding with an upholstered settee.  Again the crisp white freshens up the space and the combination of textures, shapes and colors creates a warm, inviting bedroom.
