In this beautiful book, Mark and Sally Bailey of Baileys Home Store share their passion for rescued, repaired, reused, and recycled pieces.
The look they love is simple, stripped back and stylish, focusing on the integrity of the materials and surface quality—chipped paint revealing the layers beneath, combinations of rough textures with clean lines, or old materials with sleek stainless steel or concrete.
The book begins by taking a look at the many different Elements of the Baileys’ style including Textures, Storage, Walls & Floors, Lighting, and Display. Following on, a section on Rooms shows how well the look can work throughout the home, including workspaces and children’s rooms.
For more than 30 years, we’ve described our business as a residential design firm. These days we're also Shopkeepers, in both our brick and mortar store and online.
Early in 2013, we moved from Fort Worth so we could live on our farms and work in the area we now call home. We set up our office in the historic Wooden Indian Building at 118 N. Pecan Street in Hico, Texas.
The old building was much larger than we needed for an office, so we opened a small retail store on the first floor. Initially we sold handcrafted farmhouse tables and a few accessories. We soon realized that most of our customers were travelers, so we began offering items they could take home as a reminder of their trip, including T-shirts, candles, books, toys and jewelry.
And today, the store brings clients to the design business. Folks come in to shop, wander back to Cindy’s drafting table and notice her drawings pinned to the wall. Soon we find out they’re in the area looking for land and are in the market for a set of house plans. (We can't claim that was some brilliant marketing strategy...just a lucky accident.)
One thing we know for certain...we're thankful every day to be here, working with great people who share our passion for this part of Texas.
