Beadboard UpCountry

When Tall Husband and I learned that Maryanne Flaherty and husband Peter, owners of Beadboard UpCountry, had redecorated the front of their boutique, we couldn't resist a visit to Brenham, Texas to have a look this past weekend. Also, I could not resist bringing home some of the pale, porcelain figs (photo below.)

Beadboard UpCountry, an exquisite Euro-country boutique, is nestled in the restored 1916 Farmers National Bank building on the historic square in Brenham, Texas. The light-filled space exudes the atmospheric chic of pale French-country interiors. It's no wonder that Beadboard UpCountry was the 2007 winner of "Best Commercial Interior," awarded by the Texas Downtown Association. The talented owners, Maryanne and Peter have gathered antiques, luxury linens, soaps, reproduction items and much more from North America and Europe. Whether you are desiring merely to create an original tabletop; slipcover or upholster a piece of furniture; or redecorate your entire home, this is your source. Maryanne and Peter also carry a stunning line from a Dallas company, Aidan Gray, whose furnishings, accessories and architectural elements appear to have arrived from Provence or Tuscany.
