When it came time to renovate a 100-year-old bungalow in Dallas, Texas, the owners entrusted their interior to designer and stylist Paige.
“Paige tried to pick up more than a dozen different shades of gray before she settled on this option,” the owners say, “She knew that a neutral background is important and is able to emphasize all the details of the interior and our favorite furniture.
As a child, I had several books about beetles and butterflies with beautiful illustrations. These books made me appreciate nature and enjoy the beauty of insects. To this day, I really like drawings with beetles, butterflies and dragonflies. We decided to put some paintings on this topic in the room. These are educational tables, I think they look great in the house on the wall.
The wooden chairs came to me from my grandmother. I like their simple lines and unusual shape.
It’s actually my grandmother’s dining table. It was badly damaged, we restored it a little. I had to paint it black. Black highlights all the damage, it gives a wonderful effect. Chairs from different sets. I like this discrepancy. These are grandmother’s chairs from the 50s and chairs in the Danish style.
I also love textiles very much. I have accumulated a whole collection of fabrics. I wanted to add some energy and color to my office space, which is painted white, so I hung such a wonderful bright bedspread here, instead of a picture.
Instead of a sofa, we put an old couch and covered it with beautiful vintage fabrics.Most of the fabrics are from India. I sewed the pillows myself. We hung a blanket on the wall. I bought this poster during a trip to Granada, Spain. It cost me $2 and was already framed. It fits perfectly here and reminds me of my wonderful time spent there.
