We’re not sure if you caught the exciting news this weekend… BUT one of our favorite Dallas design jobs was featured on Candy’s Dirt and we are reliving all of the feels from this stunning project! With a complete renovation from top to bottom, gorgeous wallpaper, recessed LED lighting and hardwoods in the living areas, our Dallas Designers had it cut out from the very beginning! With only days on the market, our favorite townhouse is officially under contract and we are excited to work on another project with our fabulous clients!

When this sweet couple brought us into their home, they had a dream home in mind. Visions of chic city life in a glam magazine—a worthy setting with masculine and cheeky touches all began to paint a picture. While our designer wheels always begin to turn right away, this one had our Dallas Designers instantly transporting to swanky New York City with a vision of high-class style to overtake their builder grade town-home!
Our Dallas Designers worked hard to achieve a cohesive and exciting picture on paper so they could trust us to make their dreams a reality. Working with clients who are fully invested in the outcome made for a wonderful end-result and a true designer/client friendship. With contractors and designers in and out of their home for several transforming months, we would want nothing less!
Now you step out of the city and into this showstopper foyer to be instantly transported to another world, where amuse-bouche and cocktails await just beyond the stairs! Cream travertine and tough-to-clean grout had to go in this town-home entry. Striking large scale mosaic marble is used to bring artistic impact to the floor, sealed to withstand the dress shoes and heels, and even the pups.
Baker Design Group loves mixing metals for the warm and cool qualities. Our Dallas Designers used a lot of warm golds to contrast the cool grays on the walls and doors. In the entry, warmth of brushed gold on the console lamps calls to the warmth of the wood stairs and creates a soothing balance. Lines on angles, on lines on angles; the eye is bounced in a jazz-like swell of design elements. Chiseled crystal base lamps meet the black glass console over a powerful black iron base, all stealing after just a little of the new flooring’s limelight.
Simple and elegant, the round mirror ties our black and gold together and gives a strong contrast to the linear motifs throughout. Reflecting a newly finished guest room filled with more luxe silks and plush furs, the two spaces join together as one grand experience through that one simple reflection.
We are not down with the builder brown! The kitchen was suffering, and living a fun and vibrant lifestyle in the heart of Downtown Dallas, our clients were ready to overhaul the brown and down for the bright and brilliant in their town-home. Gutting the whole kitchen, modern painted cabinetry with a brushed gold hardware icing brings new life. Grand cabinets up top and large drawers for easy storage below serve up high function. Shiny new appliances integrate both in hidden and on -display ways to showcase this chef’s dream kitchen!
A new larger surface extends over the island to offer more seating, while beautiful, durable quartz waterfalls both sides and cascades up the back splash under the grandiose architectural hood feature. New pendants of brushed gold and white glass drop into the kitchen, grounding the island and making for any level of mood lighting desired, while a conversation starter of glass and golden metal bursts light over the dining area adjacent. Brighter can bulbs allow the fresh cooler palette to read true to the space and bring a modern edge to this once traditional creamy space. Crisp white trim highlights deep charcoal doors and gray washed walls and ceilings, creating a dramatic, urban feel.
Buttery leather counter stools swivel your guests wherever needed while custom dining chairs parade the edges of the dining table, never letting on that they indeed are performance-fabric clad and will stand the test of time! Intimate dining or entertaining for all, this kitchen dishes it all!
Continuing the brown leather rut, their family room called for a new direction. With a desire for comfortable seating to snuggle the pups, while still looking magazine-worthy for their guests, performance fabrics and materials were deployed in the chicest of ways! Not only pretreated and durable, the textiles come together to sing an urban New York feel of men’s suiting, luxe velvets, and faux leathers. Warm black tones and cool silvered platinum bounce off camel and cognac accents throughout. The same livability is brought in the area rug, shimmering with luxury, but in reality, playing the tough base to take all wear and tear.
The once dull niche is now a showstopper design with a hand- painted artisan giraffe finish in our cognac leathery hue while a graphic zebra art piece pops authoritatively over the space! From swivel chairs to flexible hide ottomans, this long room is now intentionally appointed to serve for large entertaining as well as intimate gatherings and just plain family time. The long main wall is broken into vignettes with a proper scale TV credenza anchoring the seating area, while a combination of storage, seating, and artful impact anchors a once unusable transition corner. A humbly masculine light-fixture brings the mood with the perfect combination of striking lines and soft curves. Drapery waterfalls floor-to-ceiling windows with a whimsy of pattern in our sophisticated, neutral palette, setting the perfect backdrop in this swanky family room.
Now grab your night-cap and lounge into some Tom Ford and Dior! This will always be one of our favorite design projects and have a very special place in our hearts. Tell us your thoughts in the comment section below!
