On this episode I am talking with boutique hotel owner Paige Hull.
Paige and her husband, Smoot, are one of the most powerhouse couples with experience in restaurants, a modeling agency, design, markets, products and more.
The main thing that comes across again and again in their story is that what was and is good for them always finds a way to bless others too.
This noticeable element goes hand in hand in their journey, success, offerings and lifestyle.
Paige, along with her husband Smoot, own The Vintage Round Top, a boutique lodging property and lifestyle brand based in Round Top, Texas – home to the largest antique show in the US. The full property encompasses four cottages and numerous outdoor spaces designed by the couple in their “Modern Vintage” style – a trendsetting, artful mix of clean lines with vintage and reclaimed touches that marries style, sustainability, and soul.
The Vintage Round Top lifestyle brand includes artisan-made home goods and handpicked antiques curated for their online shop and a custom hotel amenity line. Paige + Smoot also produce events, retreats, and workshops on varied topics like social media, branding, marketing, and can be hired to speak on those topics as well as design and business.
The full property can be rented for events, corporate or creative retreats, workshops, photo or video shoots, brand launches, luncheons, dinners and more. It sits on an acre and a half and is only one mile from town with art galleries, antique shops, wine bars, and cafes.
The interiors of these highly publicized homes are intimate, peaceful, serene, and inspiring. They’ve been featured and named the Best Place To Stay in Round Top in countless magazines and news articles including Country Living, Modern Luxury Interiors, Texas Monthly, Southern Living, as well as in numerous design and coffee table books and blogs like Apartment Therapy and Emily Henderson, just to name a few.
Paige + Smoot offer collaboration packages to businesses a few times a year to co-create events, workshops or retreats. They also work with talented artisans, brands and suppliers to create and promote content. Inquire how to work with them by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
