Y’all, I spent an amazing few days at the Junk Gypsy Headquarters in Roundtop, Texas last month. It was the perfect place to social distance and appreciate the peacefulness of Texas hill country.
We enjoyed coffee on the back porch with the sunrise and s’mores by the campfire each night. It’s as close to camping as I will get this summer. Or any summer in Texas!
I stayed at the Gypsy Farmhouse which is part of the Wander Inn. If you want to see inside the other creatively styled rooms at the Wander Inn, check out these blog posts… the Wander Inn at Junk Gypsy Co and Weekend in Roundtop.
It is available to rent, so you can stay at this funky farmhouse, too! Find availability and more details, here.
If you know the Junk Gypsy’s, then you know that Amie and Jolie Sykes are amazing purveyors of junk. For instance, the Gypsy Farmhouse is filled with chippy antiques, vintage finds and roadside relics.
From marquee letters to roadside signs… from honkey tonk posters plastered on the wall to bumper stickers covering the fridge… the Junk Gypsies can make art from practically anything.
Now, here is a tour of the Gypsy Farmhouse at The Junk Gypsy’s Wander Inn.
There are so many creative DIY’s in the farmhouse including this repurposed coke cooler, handmade table and the stenciled floor. Plus, it is a fully stocked kitchen so we made our meals, here.
One of my daughter’s favorite things to do at the Gypsy Farmhouse is play old records on the old record player. In addition, there is a plethora of great books to read on the coffee table. So many relaxing things to do!
My favorite thing about neutral spaces is the play on textures. For instance, the salvaged bead board accent walls and chippy painted doors add a lot of interest to this space. In addition, the linens, including the bedding and towels, are so soft and luxurious.
Yep, that’s a huge copper soaker tub! When I filled it with water, the sound of the water hitting the metal reminded me of being back on my parents’ farm filling water troughs for the cows and horses.
Two bedrooms with double beds and a full size bathroom are located upstairs.
This boho inspired bedroom is filled with amazing architectural finds, a vintage peacock chair and more junk inspired DIYs, like the glittered feather lamp shade, that the Junk Gypsies are known for.
The Gypsy Farmhouse wouldn’t be ‘Junk Gypsy’ without a little southwestern flair and a velvet chair.
Lastly, there is a half bathroom located downstairs with an iconic blue pedestal sink and decoupaged wall of vintage maps. Plus, the upstairs bathroom is outfitted with an old barn door and repurposed barn wood sink.
While we were in Roundtop, we watched the annual July 4th parade, ran through a field of purple wildflowers, and bought a homemade chocolate pecan pie from Royer’s Cafe. Next, we shopped at the Junk Gypsy store. Then, we stopped in a few antique shops between Roundtop and Warrenton.
These simple things in life are just what my ‘small town girl at heart’ needed.
Roundtop, Texas hosts several antique shows throughout the year!
The next Fall show is Sept 28th – October 3rd, 2020. In addition, the Spring show is March 23rd- April 3rd, 2021. However, there are usually vendors set up from Warrenton to Roundtop for 2-3 weeks around each of these show dates. It’s a great place to shop for antiques, furniture, and vintage junk!
