Color Crushing on this Dallas Home

The unabashed and ballsy use of color in decor always draws me in. The current issue of F!D Luxe (the monthly style magazine published in the Dallas Morning News) is quite dog-eared because I can’t seem to put it down. I’ve gone back to this gorgeous home, full of life and personality, so many times, I thought I’d share it with you.

Designers Breck Woolsey and Charles Taylor amped up the rock ’n’ roll factor in the home of salon owner, Allane O’Neil.

I think it’s stunning, interesting and energetic. What do you think? Read the full article here.

    OK I know this is bad, but the first thing I fell in love with were her shoes! They are adorable! Then the color is also amazing. I'm so afraid of color mixing but I have been slowly trying! Thanks for sharing!

  11. That has to be one of my favorite dining rooms *ever*. I can't quite put my finger on exactly what it is: huge farmhouse table, *awesome* dining chairs, or that kick-a lighting…but wow, that does it for me! And the rest of it isn't too shabby, either…(c:

    I LOVE this home. I love rooms that break the rules and look fab! Like, "don't mix warm and cool colors" "use a maximum of 3 colors in your home to keep flow" Those are meant to be broken and this house illustrates it perfectly–LOVE this post, thanks.

    Love the bedroom with the stacked wood trunks. So fun and what a statement! The whole house uses so many different colors but doesn't look over the top.

  25. I was just thinking how "interesting" the house was when I read the same word from you. 🙂 I really like the house. The dinning room has to be my favorite. And that blue and wide dresser in the entry is fabulous! It's a nice change from the same old same old. Thanks for sharing!
