I Always Like Seeing How Designers
Decorate their Own Spaces . . .
. . . Don't you?
This was a space that was selected as a feature by a national magazine, but it never ran. And I doubt it will. At least that's the last word I got about it. I don't know why. Things happen in the ever-changing business of publishing . . . . But, it is such a lovely and very feminine space that I thought you might like to see it. Plus, Kara is such a sweet and gracious woman; I think this space reflects who she is at heart.
All the photos are by Dallas photographer Gustav Schmiege.
Kara and her husband have their own bathrooms and dressing areas. Isn't that the best idea?! His is masculine and more directly appointed. Nice and functional. Hers is personal and pretty. You can tell it's a relaxing retreat for her. Her home, overall, reflects a country French and European feel. Included in the house mix are longhorns and other Texas flavors, of course. Architect Ed Eubanks designed the home. I like details such as the inset shelving above the tub.
And I love the tile, hand-painted cabinets, antique silver pieces . . .
She had tiles used on the countertop sporadically placed on the floor. See below. You know, just here and there:
Kara's kitchen was featured in last fall's edition of Kitchen and Bath Ideas. I will find it and share it, too. Stay tuned.
I enjoy hearing from you! If you have a moment, please take a moment and say hello or share your thoughts below in the Comment Section.
Gus photographed another site -- a beautiful and inspiring red and white kitchen.
