letter editor HUNT SLONEM A s spring arrives, along with the vaccine, all thoughts lead to Round Top and the Spring Antiques Show, March 18 through April 4. This amazing little town is all grown up with Cinda and Armando Palacios' new Hotel Lulu (page 92); Lisa Pope Westerman, Erica Levit, and Amy Robins Dempsey's The Farm at Wellville (page 98); Cisco Home moving in from L.A. (page 88); Round Top's first public art exhibition with Rachel Hayes' hypnotic textile installations (page 102); the opening of The Halles venue for antiques and design (page 94) with Leigh Keno of the Keno Brothers appraising antiques and objects (page 86); and, at Red & White Gallery in Fayetteville, photographer Laura Wilson's extraordinary show, "Looking West," through May 31 (page 80). Have a cocktail at the Ellis Motel (it's a hopping watering hole and not a motel at all), sit by the pool (yes, pool) at Il Cuculo bar at Hotel Lulu, and shop at the new Round Top Antiques + Design Center at Henkel Square (page 100). Stop by the VIP Pavilion at The Halles and say hi. We'll be there! On the heels of Round Top's Spring Antiques Show is Texas Design Week Houston, scheduled for May 17 through 21, a week- long celebration of design with salon talks, book signings, cocktails, and product launches. Thursday, May 20, is the PaperCity Design Awards at Sarofim House on River Oaks Boulevard, hosted by New Orleans Auction Galleries. Enter your projects now at papercitymag. com/designawards.
