I have been an admirer of Chateau Domingue's owner, Ruth Gay ever since I saw images of her home and showroom on Joni's Cote de Texas blog.
Looking at the stone walls and floors in Ruth's home, it's hard to believe that this house isn't 100 (or 200) years old!
The texture of the cobble floor adds to the interest and warmth of this space.

A fantastic antique stone mantel on a simple plaster wall... it doesn't get much better than that!
Ruth also filled her home with beautiful European antique furniture.
The piece de resistance? As a garden enthusiast, I would have to say that would be Ruth's unique greenhouse, with its magnificent shutter doors.
We are all so fortunate that Ruth searched all over Europe to find these gorgeous architectural antiques for her own home, because that was when she decided to open Chateau Domingue and offer all of these elements to all of us!
Here's Ruth, shopping for stone in Europe...
Steve and I can't wait to experience Chateau Domingue in person.
I'm looking forward to seeing their selection of reclaimed tiles.
I recently discovered Atelier Domingue Architectural Metalcrafts, Ruth Gay's new line of metal windows and doors. Atelier Domingue creates windows and doors that are contemporary yet also have a time worn feel to them... What a perfect combination!
