Please Stop Tearing Down Historic Homes
1938 Fooshee & Cheek home torn down January 12, 2022.
There is a major trend happening in cities all across America, and it is very active here in the Park Cities of Dallas. I have been voicing my outrage on social media for quite some time, but now it is spiraling out of control. Historic homes are meeting the fate of wrecking balls at rapid rates. Beautifully crafted homes prior to 1930 are being wiped out for souless modern white boxes with industrial windows. There, I said it.
Beyond the Curb with Cathy Kincaid
It is a true Christmas treat and a major personal privilege to bring you a Beyond the Curb home tour of renown interior designer Cathy Kincaid. Cathy’s lovely 1918 Dallas home is every bit as charming and thoughtfully designed as you would expect it to be. With a masterful eye, Cathy uses pattern in perfect proportion. She strives to make her design equally layered and refined, while still being comfortably chic.

Chic Peek with AnnBlair Housefield
The minute you meet AnnBlair Housefield, you want to be in her orbit. She is magnetic, charming, funny, and effortlessly chic. Her home equally embodies all those qualities. Despite being a 1946 home lightly touched up over the years, this West Highland Park home in Dallas is still very relevant. AnnBlair was not afraid to use color, especially in the two darling girls’ nurseries featured. This is an ideal example of young family making fresh waves in an older home without losing the intended aesthetic.
Kips Bay Dallas 2021
Kips Bay has made its way back to Dallas this year. I truly enjoyed every aspect of the exterior design of this home, as well these favorite interior moments I featured below. Show houses give designers the capacity to design without limits, so I always find it insightful what they choose to do. This home had so many beautiful and complimenting layers. I know you will love to see.
Chic Peek with Lacy Lange
The Chic Peek I am about to share with you today is bold in color, bright in personality, and all around refreshing in its charm. Homeowner Lacy Lange did a spectacular job transforming her home into a wow worthy project. She was not shy with her use of color, texture, and art. This tour is a true delight!
