Prickly pear cactus lamps and an antler chandelier

Say the title of this post three times fast.

I'm going to let you in on a little secret.

I have a guilty pleasure.

I love, receiving in the mail, the King Ranch Saddle Shop catalog.

When it arrives, I lust over it.
If I had tons of money...and a house of my own...
I'd totally decorate it completely out of this catalog.

I love the earthly, ranch look.

I'd take everything in these photos.
Give me the cattle too.

I'd be in heaven.

The rich colors.
The lived-in feel.

I love it.

Where else could you find a metal, prickly pear lamp?!

Or an antler chandelier?!

Nothing quite says "Texas" like an antler coat rack.

Or a Zapotec pillow in bright colors on your leather couch.

This bed is calling my name.
"Rhea, Rhea, Rhea..."

Screw Regency or Victorian or any of those eras.

Give me good ole Texas ranch style any day.

Now you know my secret pleasure.

What catalog would you decorate your house out of?

That stuff is fun...not sure how it would go over in New England though....

I squee over the IKEA catalog.

Beautiful! I love Texas Ranch Style.

PS: If anyone calls it Southwest, I'm gonna kick your hiney. :)

I don't know if they have a catalog, but I love the furniture from World Market. I love the Asian, African, Indonesian, etc.....look. The more exotic, the better.

My landlord makes those antler chandeliers. And probably for a lot cheaper than the catalog.

I'm right there with ya. I love the rich colors. And I've never been to Texas.
I love rustic in all areas. Someday I want a wagon wheel chandalier. I think they are so cool. I could go on and on. I love that catalog.
Except for that coat rack. That could be dangerous with kids around.

I'm not a big fan of the sofa-chair thingy... but I luuurve those blue vases! And the bed and tableware!

I would decorate out of crate and barrel:-)

Pottery Barn. Michael has to hide the catalog from me cause I just want it all. Especially the kids catalog. It's a sickness.
