The Texas market remains as hot as the state’s sweltering temperatures, so why not have a little voyeuristic fun? After all, perusing the most expensive home listings in the state feels more akin to appreciating great art than actual house hunting (at least for most).

Which sought-after interior designer do you choose to plot your flow and finishes?

Any design lover can appreciate the lavishness of the priciest residential real estate listings in Texas — or at the very least ogle.
