A Dallas Treasure Trove

My friend recently told me about a home that just sold here in Dallas and the treasure trove of design that lies within it. Betty Gertz is renowned for her antiques here in Dallas, so it is no surprise how well she displays them in her home (now, her former home). Gertz enlisted the worldly Belgium designer Axel Vervoordt to create this enchanting and collected home. It seems that every turn leads you into a room not like the other, yet they all flow seamlessly. I love that there is an unexpected surprise around every corner in this treasure trove.

What an entry. Could you imagine having flowing vines throughout. The skylights really give an outdoors-indoors appeal. dallas-home-of-betty-gertz-designed-by-axel-vervoordt-via-ad-2

I love the washes in this room. Really quite beautifully appointed. The details in the molding are beyond. Also, don’t you love how wide that skirted coffee table is?


Another view of this fabulous room in its violet hue.



What a way to display blue & white.


I normally love a white kitchen, but this does the trick. The woodwork is beautiful.


A wonderful combination of textures and understated simplicity.


The entrance of the home just proves it’s a hidden gem.



Gertz brought some of her former home to her house. The landscaping is unbelievable.
