This Eclectic Texas Cottage Is an Animal Lover's Dream

Spot the monkey, rhino and peacock in this lively home.

A lifelong fondness for collecting is on full display in Mackay Boynton's Southern home, which lives — and looks — larger than its years.

An antique French pink marble mantel adds an architectural focal point to the living room of this small, postwar cottage. Boynton revitalized antique chairs with a brown velvet from the Silk Trading Co. and pillows with a green Kravet velvet, creating a dressy contrast to the sisal rug.

Antique Chinese porcelain birds rest on gilt-wood brackets. The dining chairs are from a local country club. The cashmere throw on the cane armchair is by Ralph Lauren Home.

Library: Gallery Wall View

"I have this sick love for artwork, but I'm running out of room, so the best choice is to stack it up," Boynton says. He employed this strategy to great effect in the library, painted in Sherwin-Williams's Relentless Olive in high gloss. His collection of malachite objets d'art rests on an antique writing table. The pineapple needlepoint pillow is Boynton's handiwork.

Master Bedroom

In the bedroom, Boynton created a dramatic backdrop for the bed by hanging a valance from the ceiling and along the wall and lining the canopy in a navy-and-white lattice-patterned fabric. The coverlet is an antique suzani, and the monogrammed shams are from Pottery Barn.
