Pretty is Back

This beautiful Dallas home decorated by Cathy Kincaid is a real delight to pore over.

The trelliswork is a wonderful addition to the interiors as it gives a feeling of bringing the outdoors in.  Also, the color chosen for the wall behind the trelliswork gives the room a very calming feeling. Apparently, this house was originally a Tudor with very dark interiors and dark woodwork throughout.  The transformation is spectacular.

This family has kids and dogs, so although the interiors may appear to be a little formal, in actuality all the rooms are well lived in.........a total English country ambience.


The solarium where the family entertains.

Hand painted floor and high gloss ceiling.

Egrets on palm wall bracket.

Notice the high gloss ceiling.

A small dining table in bay window of dining room.


Extension of solarium.

Family room.

Two storey glass wall behind floating staircase floods the area with light.

Such a cozy master bedroom.

Sister Parish influenced attic guestroom.

Antique desk now vanity table.


  1. The solarium is amazing! Do you know the square footage of the home?

    1. Hi Donna,

      Thanks for your comments! I'm not sure what the square footage of this home is, but I'll see what I can find out........if I do find it, I'll let you know. Yes, the solarium is really something......just beautiful - so pretty, light-filled and spacious! Have a great day!
