Re-discovering life with my camera.
If I had to choose one quality to describe Lynn Forres it would be: Good taste. For “Downton Abbey’s” fans, she would be a modern “Lady Lynn” www.pbs.org
Lynn Forres and her husband Don own one of my favorite restaurants in New Braunfels. Huisache Grill is located in what used to be the town’s rail road station, which they renovated to become a cool and cozy place. Wine connoisseurs, their wine selection is perfect. And their food is not only fresh and delicious, but also beautiful. www.huisache.com
While following Lynn through this photo shoot I found out why everything she does becomes a success: details. She walks around the restaurant straightening crooked paintings, re-arranging her book collection and cleaning up dead flowers from flower pots. She believes things belong in one place or they don’t belong at all.
Huisache Grill used to be the only place in town where artists were welcome to display their art. Today, Lynn also opens her doors to musicians for casual performances in the restaurant’s yard. These details make the Forres family visionaries in this small town in Texas.
As an owner of several self-remodeled houses, her own house is a beautiful old house in downtown New Braunfels. Every room is decorated with beautiful things and her unique touch. Her love for traveling and for her second home, San Miguel De Allende, Mexico, is seen throughout the house. Her kitchen, being my favorite room, reminds me of a Tuscan kitchen. With an L-shaped, rich, golden pine cabinets and big windows make this kitchen perfect for a real foodie like Lynn.
OK, Lynn, when can I move in?
