I have been seeing a lot of red lately, but that is not a bad thing. Almost two years ago I started a project out of state for a bachelor client of mine, and red is his favorite color. I don’t despise the color, but I have found it very challenging to work with because it can be so aggressive and dominate a space in a hurry. I’m a excited to see that project in the final stages, we are actually photographing it in a few weeks!
The entry is one of my favorite parts of the house, these 5’x7′ paintings from Dallas artist Chris Judy are show stoppers and bring in the perfect amount of red. Narrowing down my favorite spots in this home is a challenge because there are so many to choose from. The main patio and pool are the first thing you see after entering the home and once you are outside looking in, the large art becomes the view. The space is absolutely stunning at night too!
When my client filled me in on his plans to purchase a smaller condo in Dallas, I was elated! This place would still have the masculine touches and pops of red that he loves, but it would be more on the modern side. Since his home out of state is very traditional, he wanted to have a space out of town that was unique and felt like he was visiting a swanky hotel.
Construction started this week and we are in the thick of ordering draperies, custom furniture and unique lighting! We are on the fast track for this one and hopefully every detail is in place by the October move in date. The space will still be very masculine but with an overall polished and sophisticated feel. Here is the inspiration board for the space, it looks like the chain chandelier and cowhide wall covering are a go!
