Before I dive in to The Vintage Round Top, and the amazing evening I had at this boutique lodging and event space, I want to give you a little run-down on what makes Round Top, TX a place you’ll want to visit. Round Top, TX is a super small town located in between Austin and Houston. I mean, the town only has a population of 90 people, so why would you want to visit?… A few words – Round Top Antiques Week. Antiques Week is held twice per year – in the spring (late March, early April) and the fall (end of September, beginning of October). It’s basically the largest antique market you’ll ever experience. It’s over a 15-day period, with around 60 shops, that reside on an 11-mile stretch of Highway 237, with smaller displays outside of Round Top, in neighboring towns. Most of the vendor’s displays take place during the day, but several booths offer late-night shopping, along with live music and drinks. I have yet to make it out to Antiques Week, but I definitely plan on making the trip this fall. To me, and anyone else who’s even slightly in to antique shopping, this sounds like a small piece of Heaven. To learn more about Antiques Week, head on over to The Vintage Round Top’s Guide to Antiques Week – they give you all the deets on everything you need to know before planning your first trip!
Now, on to this 3-way collaboration. When I was asked by The Vintage Round Top’s team to be a part of this collab, I JUMPED at the chance. Being able to work with this amazing lodging and lifestyle brand has been one of my favorites to date. If you’ve read any of my past interior design posts, you know that the style of the Modern Farmhouse or Modern Vintage look, is my fave. It was definitely an honor to be recognized by a brand such as The Vintage Round Top, that loved my style, and wanted me to be a part of theirs.
Along with The Vintage Round Top team, I worked with Stacy Allen, of Mountainside Photo Co. and Travis, of Manready Mercantile, who you’ll see in a few of the photos, below. He provided beautiful travel bags and home goods for this shoot from his store, based out of Houston, TX (more on Manready Mercantile and the awesome products his brand offers in a post to come – stay tuned)! Stacy is an amazing photographer, and her work has been featured in People Magazine and Southern Living, so I was super stoked for all of the beautiful photos we were able to create together.
When you book your stay at The Vintage Round Top, expect to find curated vintage pieces, mixed with a modern look. They call it a “Modern Vintage Style.” Almost all of the pieces you’ll find in this vacation rental home have been refurbished, which I love. There’s always a story behind vintage pieces that just make a space feel extra special. The space is one house, with two cottages – the No. 1450 and Boho. Each space can be booked separately, or together. Perhaps my fave part of the property is the acre and a half of country pasture that the home sits on. For our last part of the shoot, we shot outside on the back porch, just as the sun was setting in front of us. The lot next to the home is a field full of cows, and it doesn’t get much more Texas that that.
I highly suggest jumping on the chance book your stay here during Antiques Week, to get the full Round Top experience. But even if you just decide to book your stay for a quiet weekend getaway, you can’t go wrong. There’s nothing better for the soul than to take a mental break, even if just for a long weekend. And The Vintage Round top is the perfect space, located in a perfect little Texas, countryside town. To learn more about rates and availability, be sure to head over to the site, to book your upcoming stay.
The Vintage Round Top’s mantra is “Living with Intention.” This mantra is shown through their online vintage shop, their seasonal Branding & Social Media Workshops, and numerous collaborations they have been a part of with influencers and creatives. This lifestyle brand encompasses the very essence of intentional living, with a modern, vintage twist. I could go on and on about this brand, but I suggest you just check it out for yourself by heading over to their site. You can read all about the story of Paige and Smoot Hull, the founders of the brand, along with a comprehensive guide to the city of Round Top, Texas. And be sure to check out all of the photos from Stacy, below – I just couldn’t resist posting so many photos of this beautiful space!
