Art at Home – and Home as Art in Dallas
May 9th, 2016 | by Michelle
From lighting and space to placement and proportion, museums take every nuance into account to maximize the presentation value for each work of art. Incorporating the same principles and techniques into one’s home elevates living to an art form in itself.
The Sotheby’s brand has a long heritage representing the finest in art, and now the best of luxury real estate. These homes show how art enhances any space – and how good home design is like a fine work of art.
When a young, hip modern art collector reimagines the interiors of a traditional home – the results are stunning. Museum walls, art lighting and lighter finishes combine to create a gallery effect, while the modern-day floorplan remains practical and relevant for today’s lifestyle.
Situated on 3.38 magnificent acres with a meandering creek, this extraordinary contemporary was designed to connect the inside to the outside. Family friendly, inviting and sophisticated, this home is perfect for living and dramatic entertaining.
Clean lines and museum-style quality define this thoughtfully planned transitional from the gourmet kitchen with quartz countertops and a butler’s pantry to the spa-like master suite. Snider Plaza, SMU, Gore Park, the UP Pool and McCulloch Intermediate School are just around the corner.
A stone’s throw from Inwood Village in Mockingbird Park, this mid-century modern captivates all with an eye for structure and design. Almost 3,000 square feet of contemporary framework includes clean, crisp lines, beautiful bamboo floors and gallery wall lighting. Indoor/outdoor dining serves as a focal point, ideal for entertaining.
Far North Dallas
Atop a bluff overlooking a rolling creek, this renovated sleek contemporary offers a rare sense of sophistication and privacy – complete with high ceilings, gleaming wood floors, a wrap-around deck, and a second floor devoted to the master retreat. It’s the ideal spaces for discerning art collectors.
