How to Pamper Your Holiday Guests


How to Pamper Your Holiday Guests

 

In addition to showcasing the luxury listings of Ebby Halliday Realtors, the fall 2016 issue of Grand Vie: Luxury in Living magazine offers a plethora of interesting editorial content, including “Home Away from Home,” featuring advice on designing the ideal guest room from design and lifestyle expert Kathy Fielder.

 

How to Pamper Your Holiday Guests

 

“With the holiday season quickly approaching, now is the time to consider your home’s guest accommodations and what you can do to make your friends and family members feel at home — in your home,” Fielder says. “The first tip I always provide clients, family and friends about their guest rooms? ‘Spend the night there to see if you would enjoy it.’

 

How to Pamper Your Holiday Guests

 

Fielder says the key to the success of your guest bedroom design is in the planning. Each detail should be carefully considered so that you optimize the space available.

 

How to Pamper Your Holiday Guests

 

Fielder recommends creating a Pinterest board or making some sort of inspiration board. When you do, you will start to see a pattern.

 

“Once you have decided on modern or traditional, eclectic or transitional, you’ll be motivated to choose your color palette,” Fielder says.

 

Color defines and breathes life into our spaces. It appeals to our senses, and studies show that our bodies physically react to color. That being said, it makes sense to choose the colors you will use in your guest bedroom wisely.

Spring is Here!


Spring is Here!

 

It’s the first day of spring, and if you haven’t done so already, now is definitely the time to give your yard the respect it deserves. As homeowners everywhere know, nothing can bring you down from the weather high that March brings quite like a backyard that’s still caught in winter.

 

In the brand-new spring 2015 edition of Grand Vie: Luxury in Living magazine, the only luxury-home publication to bring you the very best of Dallas and Fort Worth, we chatted with two renowned local landscape architects, Harold Leidner and Angelynn Harvey, about their top tips for getting your yard ready for the season.

 

Grand Vie: Yard trends change just like home décor trends. What’s a new fad you are seeing in residential yards this year?

 

Harold Leidner: A more modern style and feel. We have always
loved a more modern style, but clients traditionally are more reserved in the style of homes they build, which often dictates the surrounding gardens. Thankfully, more modern architecture in the market means our clients are receptive to a cleaner and more sophisticated design style.

 

GV: What is the most extreme thing a client has asked you to do?

 

HL: We had a great client who asked us to create a movie projection water screen as a part of his pool design. This way he could sit in his pool and watch a movie projected on a sheet of water. It started as a wild idea but we turned it into reality. The result was amazing.
