The Dallas Show House, located in South Lake, TX, was a collaboration between Traditional Home Magazine, HGTV star Donna Moss, and her husband Paul Moss. It officially ended on October 22 the proceeds raised from this event went to the Alzheimers Association, an organization committed to providing care and support to those affected, while also pushing accelerated research to one day eliminate the disease.
Our studio took a little field trip during its opening, to visit the space, and we had lots to take away. After visiting we have pulled inspiration from different areas of the house to carry over into our own projects and we are so excited to share the recap of this 7,935 sq. ft. house! Scroll through to read more about each room.
1. The Grand Hallway
This Hallway created wonderful cohesion between the living room and the guest wing. With purple lights lining the ceiling in honor of the Alzheimers Association, we couldn’t help but stare in awe. Not only were we taken back by the ambient lighting, but we also admired the intentional overlap of the palm branches and the chandelier.
2. The Living Room
This side table located to the left of the fire place created the perfect balance for the entirety of the room. The bold, black shades not only made a statement, but they also contrasted the wallpaper perfectly.
3. Pool Area
This outdoor pool area was anyones dream hosting space. With a large tiled pool, salmon colored loungers with adorning accent mirrors, and three different levels of seating, we couldn’t help but applaud the designer behind this space. Not only is this the perfect space for the summer time but it was also created to be functional during the colder months of the year. They strategically placed three fireplaces throughout the space and also created a spacious jacuzzi as a statement piece.
4. Guest Bathroom
This guest bathroom caught our eye not only because of the decorative side tray, but also because of the immaculate gold faucet that sits uniquely to the left of the sink. It is not very often that you see the plumbing anywhere but behind the sink, so this definitely inspired us to mix things up from time to time.
5. Guest Bedroom
Blush is coming back and that statement is supported by the beauty of this room. We also couldn’t help but notice the relatively masculine pattern on the fabric above the bed contrasted with the brown tones on the wall. Top it all off with rustic wood floors and this room is set!
This stairway caught our eye simply because of the contrast between the abstract shapes on the wallpaper and the geometric shapes found in the banisters lining the stairs. With the three matching chandeliers and the Tina Turner piece, we couldn’t look away.
7. Sitting Room
Throughout the rest of the house there was a lot of grey and black tones used, especially in the living room, and we loved this space simply because it changed the tone for the rest of the house. With the jewel tones in the throw pillow and sofa, we felt rejuvenated to see what the other designers had to offer.
8. Wet Bar in Media Room
Check out the hardware on the drawer pull! This unique hardware really grabbed our attention. Not only that, but the bold and graphic art on the left wall compliments the bar area so it doesn’t feel too “beachy” with the powder blues and greens.
9. Guest Bedroom
Our camera was not able to capture the light of this space so please forgive us and believe us when we tell you that, this was much prettier in person. However, to note the beauty in this room, we loved the European vice of this room. The texture on the bolster contrasted with the texture of the wall art was the perfect balance of traditional and abstract.
10. Upstairs Hallway
This quaint seating area was found between a guest bedroom and the media room. The calmness of the colors and the cohesion between the furniture and the wall piece really caught our eye. Seems like the perfect place quietly sit and catch your breath after climbing all of those stairs!
