Home Tour | Howard Jackson

I've just published another home tour on and it's one you won't want to miss. To see the full article and all of the photos, click HERE. But in the meantime, here's a little excerpt from the article:

Howard Jackson’s home is a treasure trove of estate sale finds and unique artifacts and art. However, he didn’t achieve this look all at once. It took Jackson many years to develop the home’s aesthetic. He says, “For a long time, it was clearly a bachelor’s residence. Lots of bare walls and nondescript furniture.” 

But that all changed in 2009 when Jackson’s mother became terminally ill. “I returned to California for about a month to be there for her. When I returned to Dallas after her funeral, I can remember going to sleep that first night in my house. I was in a bed without a headboard surrounded by clothes still packed in boxes,” he says. “After everything that had just happened, and after spending so much time back in the home that I grew up in, being back in my own place now suddenly felt so depressing. That’s when I decided to make the house a home.”

Oh, I really like his art - especially that man in the yellow turban in the living room!

The fireplace turned out great, and painting it was a clever way to save money!
