When you get to be lucky enough as a designer to work with an Architect on his personal home – you jump at the opportunity – especially one with as man great ideas as this man had. A husband and wife had demolished their previous home that they loved so much to rebuild their forever home in the same lot. The cedar shingles on the exterior make this Preston Hollow home seem like it is tucked away in Nantucket. Shaker style cabinets provide depth to each area while maintaining clean lines. Interior lighting of wall sconces, track lights, ceiling fixtures and pendants add character that brings a smile to all who enter. The charm of this home is found in secret passageways, quirky rooflines on the second floor, white planked ceilings, a reading screen porch, and a pass through wardrobe for an under-the-stair reading area for grandchildren’s imaginations to run wild. The penny round and ceramic black and white tile in guest bathrooms add a touch of whimsy while remaining timeless.
