So have you heard the news?
Southern Accents is closing its doors. :(
I will no longer check my mailbox to find the latest S.A. issue and say aloud "YESSSSSSSS"- then practically fall flat on my face as I head to my front door...walking-while-flipping, flipping-while-tripping.
So today I am posting an ode to Southern Accents with some pictures from their ever popular showhouses.
*if you click on each showhouse title it will take you to the main article that includes all of the key players in creating each house. From there you can click to the virtual tours which will show you every nook and cranny-- Enjoy!
Dallas Showhouse, 2003
Suzanne Kasler at her best...
Remember Liza from Style Blueprint? She
has always said if she built a house she would build it like this one. I might have to fight her for it-
To see more of these pictures see Liza's post here
Mystery Showhouse, 2009
I was sent a link to this post----here
---- about the 8500 sq. ft. 2009 showhouse in Fort Worth...??
Keep your fingers crossed it will be in their last issue!
Dearest Southern Accents,
Thank you for providing such joy every month when I check the mailbox. I don't know where I'd be without magazines like you. You (and your fabulous showhouses) will be profoundly missed.
**If you feel strongly about this magazine you can add on to this letter in the comments section. I'll copy/paste them in a big email to the editor- so she'll know how much we've appreciated the inspiration over the years!
