“Fun. Energetic. Welcoming. Confident. Brave. These five words describe not only this colorful dining room, but also my good friend and the homeowner, Beth Garza. From our first meeting, I knew that this fabulous mom of four was going to be different. I learned quickly that, in her eyes, absolutely no fabric has quite enough color or pattern; high-end lighting and mirrors make her happy; and her home would be unlike any other.
We worked with her existing metallic wall covering, adding brass hardware and lush purple drapery. Modern wing chairs clad in a bold pattern by Schumacher complement 18th century English-inspired side chairs that we modernized in a crisp white lacquer. I designed the one-of- a-kind emerald green buffet, made by a local artisan.
Friends have told Beth that when they walk into her home they immediately feel welcome and happy, and that her home is so very ‘her.’ As a designer, those words are the hallmark of a job well done. Our collaboration is effortless because Beth has a strong point of view and knows what she wants for her home. My role was to make her vision come to life, and we did—with flying colors!”
