Allison Marusic: Vintage Home

Posted: February 16th, 2011 | Filed under: collector, home | 2 Comments »

I met Allison Marusic last summer. Somehow I heard about her Red Barn Roundup, and it sounded exciting. At that time, I lived in a condo in East Nashville. I think RBR started as a pot-luck for a bunch of East Nashville friends, and they added live music in the covered carport behind Allison’s home. But it’s not until you enter her home that you really get the full effect — every room is like a vintage museum, detailed with wonderful furniture, artwork, personal photographs, and globes. (I didn’t count how many world globes, but a lot). Plus, to boot, Allison is as sweet as they come — always welcoming, with a smile, and just a kind genuine person.

Once upon a time, I was married, long long ago, and our home was decorated (by Gina) in a very similar style as Allison’s, so maybe that’s why I feel so at home there. (I told Allison the other day about a story of our old home, where the kitchen cabinet doors were removed, to highlight the FiestaWare collection, and I was given one tiny, skinny cabinet for my real-world coffee cups). It was kind of a funny story. Kind of.

I’m not sure about the plans for the next Red Barn Roundup; I think it might even be June of 2011 before she cranks it up again.
