Dallas Home Featured in House Beautiful

It is always fun to see a home from your own neighborhood show up on the pages of a shelter magazine.  A home you have driven past a million times, it is nice to get a peek inside.  This home, featured in the December/January 2016 issue of House Beautiful, was decorated by Tom Scheerer and is amazing.  All photographs by Francesco Lagnese and posted here with his permission.

I love the restraint used in this living room.  Almost entirely neutral, the dark finishes and natural fiber rug provide contrast.  I love the unexpected blush drapes with the playful fringe—and love the clean lined french arm drapery hardware.  The rug is from a local resource that makes a soft sisal product that is softer than traditional sisal but also more durable and stain resistant.  I’ve used it in a couple of client projects and we have loved it.  The fabric on the chairs and sofa is from Perrenials™ a Dallas based trade-only company that offers incredible indoor/outdoor fabrics with the hand of linen but the durability of a washable fabric.  I just used their fabrics in my family room and love them.  I am pretty sure you can access their fabrics when ordering from Restoration Hardware as well.

In total contrast to the living room, this dining room that opens to the kitchen is completely unexpected.  Sheerer often uses this China Seas Wallpaper and it seems completely unexpected in a traditional Dallas home.  I love how he paired it with the black Saarinen table and then traditional Queen Ann chairs with the green seats.  If you peek into the kitchen, the island is recessed with a mirrored panel to give the illusion of a Parson’s style table, but allowing for storage.  I think this is genius!

The Chinoiserie study has a paneled look thanks to Nobilis faux bois wallcovering.  The soft sisal rug makes another appearance and I love the mix of high and low, with CB2 and Restoration Hardware pieces mixing in with the high end trade resources.
