Beadboard UpCountry, a Euro Country lifestyle and design shop, located in a beautifully renovated bank in the picturesque town of Brenham, Texas, opened in October 2006.
The Shop, the brainchild of Maryanne Flaherty, carries unique European inspired linens, antiques, upholstery, furnishings, and gifts from Europe, Canada, and, of course, the US. The shop also offers custom upholstery and washable slipcovers in linen and cotton offering a wide choice of natural fibers.
Assisted by her husband “Robes”, Maryanne fills the airy shop with items selected for their uniqueness, their ability to enhance, and to blend in with all types of Décor. After the first year, the shop was awarded the President’s Award for the “Best Commercial Interior” from the Texas Downtown Association (made up of architects, designers, and builders involved in renovation of urban areas of both big cities and smaller towns in Texas).
Having a background in both retail furnishings/design and apparel, and being a Californian with Texas Roots this space seemed perfect for showcasing the eye candy that abounds here. Upon entering the shop most people just utter the word “WOW” as they listen to French or Italian music, not expecting something on this level would exist outside of a large urban area. “That’s the UP in UpCountry…. Upscale, uptown, uptempo, uplifting”.
Since its opening, Beadboard has been moving UP now offering an exclusive line of Italian linens, Arte Pura….. ‘It is amazing, 32 colors, in linen, 8 different trims. All venues, for the bedroom, bath, table, curtains,and Dreamwear that no one is wearing to bed! You design it yourself!”…Maryanne invites you in to discover the fresh upcountry lifestyle that is Beadboard……
