I am artist, decorator and colorist. My artist husband Lionel and I live in the 2nd home on our Briam Cottage property, where we have a studio and 3 small dogs who are very friendly and love to greet guests. We enjoy entertaining & traveling....Europe and Latin America are favorite destinations, and we decorate with textiles and treasures from our travels. My grandparents ran a rooming house and later became innkeepers, so there is hosting in my blood...I try to be as good at this as they were. And although I don't cook for my guests, like my grandmother assured that here in San Antonio, a great meal is easy to find, in whichever direction you go. We are happy to recommend eateries and drinkeries!
