Victorian-era houses normally have a quite impressive asymmetrical facade. Different from other Victorian-era houses, the facade of this one in Melbourne actually is clean, open and quite airy. We love the intricate metalwork on the ceiling and the flooring tiles. The toner color palette of grey, black and white truly gives the house a modern feel.

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.
