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.

Ebby’s Iconic Little White House Gets Makeover


Ebby’s Iconic Little White House Gets Makeover
One of Dallas’ most recognizable landmarks recently received a major upgrade.

 

“While the exterior of Ebby’s Little White House at the corner of Northwest Highway and Preston Road still looks very familiar to the thousands of people who drive by daily, inside our valued clients, Associates and staff members are enjoying a brand-new, beautiful environment,” says Keith Newman, the office’s sales manager.

 

When the Little White House was built several miles north of downtown Dallas in 1926 it was surrounded only by fields. By 1939, enough people lived nearby – almost 800 – that the area incorporated as the Town of Preston Hollow and the building briefly doubled as its town hall.

 

Ebby Halliday bought the property in 1964 for approximately $100,000 and spent almost $50,000 repairing and remodeling the structure before making it her signature office.

 

While it’s the oldest building for miles around, Ebby’s Little White House today features a just-completed, beautiful interior with the latest technology. Below are just a few recent photos taken recently inside this Dallas landmark.
