Fall 2017 Dream Home Update

While construction on the Summer Dream Home finishes, the Fall Dream Home rolls along.

Our Fall 2017 Dream Home, a Hill Country contemporary in West Fort Worth’s gated La Cantera development at Team Ranch, is the fourth Dream Home for our interior design and decoration partner, Grandeur Designs. The Dream Home will be “warm and comfortable, fresh,” says Brenda Blaylock, who heads the 17-year-old firm with partner Susan Semmelman. “It has a lot of texture, and texture feeds on texture.”

Glass tile in the guest bathroom is set vertically and detailed with a metal circle waterfall mosaic.

The Dream Home will include a lot of stainless, glass and wood finishes, which Semmelman says will combine for a “very clean urban, yet rustic feel. It’s bringing in a very industrial element.”

Tall ceilings, window arrays and hardwood floors with a distressed feel boost the Dream Home’s warmth. The color palette is full of grays, dove whites, mink and warm silvers, with bright metals and champagne accents. Semmelman and Blaylock have consulted with the homeowners on all of the home’s construction detailing, finishes and furnishings. Grandeur is also designing and constructing window treatments and bedding for the home.

The 5,300-square-foot home, on Estribo Circle in the fast-growing La Cantera development at Team Ranch just inside Loop 820, is the 15th in the magazine’s long-running series of Dream Homes. Fort Worth Magazine teams with builders, designers, decorators and vendors to present the latest in design and fashion trends. The Fall 2017 Dream Home in La Cantera, already sold, will be open for tours in October to benefit a Wish with Wings, a Fort Worth charity that grants wishes to terminally ill children.
