Houzz Recognizes UDA! February 21, 2018

UDA has once again won a Best of Houzz award! The winning design was our adobe morning room in Privada. If the room looks familiar, it's because this home won an Excellence in Masonry award from the Arizona Masonry Guild. A great big thank you to R-Net Custom Homes, Old Mission Masonry, and Billi Springer & Associates for being part of our team, and for helping us bring this design to life. It's always a team effort!

This isn’t the first time Houzz has recognized UDA.  Over the years we have been bestowed a handful “badges,” including four “Best of Houzz” badges, a Houzz Influnencer badge, and 50K Ideabook Saves badge. If you would like to see the rest of our badges, make sure to check-out our Houzz page.

Thanks for enjoying and passing along our photos.  Let us know when you are ready to start your project!



    Round Top Antiques Fair

    On a recent adventure to Round Top Texas, Victoria visited the bi-annual Antiques Show featuring well over 60 venues. This event is on its 50th anniversary and covers about 25 miles along the highway including a few towns. Where do you start? How do you make sure you see all the best shows? Well, put all your worries to rest because there is a guide with every event, show and venue. There is even a map to help you get around, it’s no wonder why this is so well talked about! Today’s post highlights just a small handful of the shops and talent out there.

    The Big Red Barn is the original owner of the Round Top Antiques Fair. Their business blossomed from 22 people to over 100 quickly. Big Red Barn has some of the most seasoned antiquers on hand. Susan Franks, the owner, has a great amount of knowledge about antiques ranging from Native American artifacts to American primitives.

    Victoria visited Marbuger Farm, one of the antiques shows largest venues. Marburger has been with the show for 20 years and spans across 43 acres. They host about 350 dealers which gives you a variety of antique styles from mid-century modern to Texas primitives.

    Another stop was The Compound, owned by Mark Massey who is very hands on with all events. The compound is most known for its bright and colorful farm landscape and their 35,000 square foot venue space.

    Market Hill, established by Paul Michael, showcases 19 vendors in their facility. They carry unique and interesting items from all around the world.

    While in Round Top, Victoria was able to connect with these great antique dealers to keep our designs unique. She collected quite a few stunning furniture pieces and antique textiles had picked by the best resources out there. This trip was a great opportunity to refresh our southwest inspiration and soul.
