The Southern Living Idea House is in Austin This Year

The gurus at JAMES Showroom are some of the local pros behind this year's Southern Living Idea House.

You predicted Sharp Objects would become a TV series and bore your friends by complaining that Sweetbitter isn't nearly as good as the book. 

Girls who love the next buzzy bestseller book will feel right at home at the Southern Living Idea House, which is in Austin this year. Located in the Northwest Hills area, Meredith Ellis, respected interior designer and founder of JAMES Showroom, created a green dining room that doubles as a library, and filled other nooks, rooms and closets with hardbacks, all arranged in color wheel order. Make a day of idea exploring by snagging a ticket for a self-guided tour to take in and be inspired by other unexpected elements like sunroom cabinets that open up to reveal a secret powder room.
It's where the home kindle fires are burning.
