Home Tour–A Modern Classic Dallas Home with Edge

 

We are impressed by how the design team transformed this 1980s Georgian-style home with high glamor and edge while  keeping  its classical bone.  The house was originally designed by local architect Paul Turney and built to such a high level. So the design team decided just to add new flooring and windows with larger panes, an iron stair rail in lieu of a more traditional wooden version, and a stone surround for the front door rather than tearing down the original structure.  Other changes include opening up the kitchen and incorporating  an adjacent family room, reconfiguring the master bathroom and adding  a covered back patio for easier outdoor living.  Here are highlights of our favorite spaces. Let’s take a tour together.

7 Ways to Design Wellness at Home IV- Home Fragrance for Aromatherapy

We talked about how color, light, plants, air quality, noise reduction..etc affect our well being at home in our recent blog series of 7 Ways to Design Wellness at Home.   You can click here for part Iclick here for part II   , and click here for part III. The more time we spend at home, the more important we feel home is to us.  Today, we are going to talk about one more important factor that will affect how we feel at home—the scent.  We often say Stop to Smell Roses. The sweet and fresh scent of those fresh roses often relaxes us and puts a big smile on our face in a second—that is the magical power of the natural fragrance.  Throughout history, fragrance has been used as a way to delight the senses. Some of the first known uses of fragrances date back to the times of the ancient Egyptians.   The Egyptians began incorporating fragrances and natural plants into ointments and other medical aids. The use of these fragrances and oils for medicinal purposes was the beginning of aromatherapy.  We now use scented candles, herbs, plants and flowers and diffuser to make  our  home smell great, not just for reducing nasty smells, helping clean the air of unwanted smells, but for improving our well being as  aromatherapy.

7 Ways to Design Wellness at Home I

With most of us staying at home over 7 weeks, we more and more realize how important our home is to us, specially a healthy home. By this coming Friday, some businesses in California will be re-open. But we know it will take a while to go back the normal. And  one of the facts of the new normal is that we will  still have to  spend more time at home. That being said, it may be a good idea to think a little bit deeper on how to create a home environment that makes us feel relaxing, soothing, comfortable and healthy.  Rooms that inspire wellness create more comfortable and livable space for our daily routines.  So, a  healthy home is the foundation for a healthy life.

From today, we are going to talk 7ways to design wellness at home

Color of Lilac

I was  on the webinars,zooms and Instagram lives all day.  I kind of like this life style since I don’t have to drive to anywhere. But, I had to agree that it did take a lot of energy to be on all-day webinars.

 

One of the good things is that I was able to do some yoga poses in my backyard in the beautiful sunset.

5 Beautiful Backsplash Ideas

We recently got some requests on specifying kitchen backsplash tiles. We think it will be a good idea to put together some of our favorites here  in case you are landing on our blog today and happen to look for some cool ideas.

We came across this glamorous house and  fell in love with the interiors immediately. Why?  Because the interiors are  airy, bright , clean-lined yet still have right doses of sophistication  and classical elements.  The home feels livable,  and not over-stuffed.  So, that being said, let’s take a look together.

Classical Black-and-White Checkered Marble Flooring at the entrance really excites our eye and breaks away from the all  hardwood flooring, which injectc freshness, high-style and interests to the home.

Also what makes this home young, fashion-forward and glamorous are those clear crystal Lucite furniture.  And wait, did you see that awesome geometric pattern on the ceiling—kind of similar to  the pattern on the flooring.

Then, here comes pale French   blue on kitchen island —soft and light. Shimmering pearl backsplashes are elegant and chic, echoing the translucent Lucite furniture.  Brass trims on the range-hood, pendants and metal fame of the bar chairs elevate the whole kitchen.

A Breathtaking Weekend Retreat— a Modern farm House outside of Nashville, Tennessee

Meyer Davis was commissioned to design this hunting camp and weekend retreat outside of Nashville, Tennessee to be a gathering place for family and friends.

Dreamy Tennessee Landscape

“The sprawling middle Tennessee landscape offered the design team an opportunity to abstract from and respond to the surrounding nature of the farmhouse. Sitting on a grass plinth, the house acts as a simple geometric representation of the natural topography; it is essentially a glass box, taking advantage of all available views. Spatial playfulness between the interior and exterior, combined with exquisite detail of materials is what makes this home special.”
