Presenting Sponsor:









When we tasked ourselves with rewarding the top well-designed spaces in the Fort Worth/Dallas area, we knew it would be difficult. And then the entries flowed in. Masculine, eclectic, Scandinavian-inspired, thematic, renovations, new builds, remodels, balconies, pools — projects filled with the kind of beauty a homeowner can only dream of poured in, ready for us to judge. We narrowed down the entries to, at most, three finalists in eight different categories, stripped projects of the designers’ names to keep them anonymous, and shipped it all off to a panel of expert judges. The winner in each category will be revealed at an awards ceremony at the new Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams showroom at The Shops at Clearfork on Dec. 7 and in the March issue of Fort Worth HOME. Until then, we revel in the beauty of the finalists, in no particular order.
