A Single Frame of Texas Sky is the Centerpiece of Her Room

Overview of Loft

The goal for the loft area, a hidden space away from the rest of the home, was to design a contemporary place to get away and find peace from the chaos of our everyday lives. This is a place to chat with friends, unwind, play games, enjoy an after-dinner drink, or sit and look at the clouds and let your mind wander. If true wealth is health and time, space isn’t far behind, and this area is the perfect bonus to the house.

When I first visited the loft, I was immediately drawn to the clouds as I gazed through the skylight. The room doesn’t have windows, so it was like a single frame of the Texas sky — the centerpiece of the design. The submerged series of art boxes and the custom skylight art are by artist Carmen Menza. Other talented local artists’ works are incorporated throughout the space — I’m passionate about supporting the Dallas art scene. Generous vendors and sponsors partnered with us, including Arteriors, Benjamin Moore, Cambria, Dan Lam, Edelman Leather, Garden Gate, Jeanne Sanders, Joan Winter, Kravet, Perennials, Phillip Jeffries (who provided a new wallpaper from its specialty collection), Rebecca Carter, Sabina Fay Braxton, Stallings Art Services, and The Rug Company. — Sherry Hayslip Interiors
