What’s Trending in 2014? Décor & Design Above, Below & Beyond

Groin ceiling treatment designed by Larry Boerder.

Groin ceiling treatment designed by Larry Boerder.

This year – 2014 – will be a year of looking up. Architects are inspiring us to new design heights with artfully coffered ceilings, repurposed or hand-hewn beams, vaulted groins, ornate medallions and dramatic moldings. Dallas architect Larry Boerder has been searching from the Fort Worth stockyards to dusty warehouses as far away as Pennsylvania to find age-old beams that add just the right dash of rustic warmth to a new or newly-redone home. He’s also working with local artisans to create highly detailed, deeply coffered ceilings that add texture and dimension to living and entertaining spaces. “The ceiling is just another part of the room that can be made to stand out,” Boerder says. “As an architectural element it’s very important that a ceiling be authentic and that it be done well. Faux is finished.”

Best of Fall – Must-do Activities in Dallas

10/14/2013

Did you feel that? Yes, even though it’s raining outside this Monday morning, the temperature has finally dropped into boot-friendly temperatures! With the heat retreating at last, we can don our favorite scarves, grab a pumpkin spice latte, and check out the best events of fall in Dallas! (Don’t worry. We’ve got plenty of indoor fun for you and the whole family for all those wet Mondays to come. . .)

 

Chinese Lantern Festival at Fair Park

Through January 5, 2014

Chinese-Lantern-Festival-at-Fair-Park4

 

Chinese-Lantern-Festival-at-Fair-Park2
The festival debuted last year during the State Fair of Texas, and it was so popular that its run was extended. Back for its second year, this exquisite illuminated exhibit still enchants us at night. You won’t want to miss the 52-foot porcelain pagoda handmade from 68,000 plates, bowls, spoons and wine cups.

 

Autumn at the Arboretum

IMG_5953

The Dallas Arboretum’s incredible fall transformation includes 50,000 orange pumpkins, green squash and speckled gourds spread throughout pumpkin village. Take an evening stroll through the pumpkin patch before settling in for one of the fall concerts on the lawn.

 

Animal Inside Out at Perot Museum

Through February 17, 2014

Created by Body Worlds mastermind Dr. Gunther von Hagens, this exhibit offers museum-goers an unprecedented — and, at times, creepy — look into animals’ anatomy. Explore 100 preserved specimens and learn about the incredible science of some of the world’s most interesting mammals.

Partygoers will also enjoy hors dʼoeuvres by local culinary artists, as well as beer, wine, and coffee provided by Grapevine Craft Brewery, Times Ten Cellars and Cedarwood Roasting Company.

North Oak Cliff Music Festival at Lake Cliff Park

November 2

Now in its second year, this music fest is bringing acts such as Jason Eady, Black Lillies, The Relatives, Daphne Willis, Band of Heathens, Seryn, Ian Moore, Ruthie Foster and Bob Schneider to its stage.

In addition to a full day of concerts, enthusiasts can indulge in complimentary bites from local food trucks and children’s activities. Pets are welcome too.

 

Dallas YMCA Turkey Trot

November 28

This Dallas tradition, now in its 46th year, is our favorite way to start the holiday — mainly because it eases the guilt for the meal we’re about to consume, and it supports a good cause. Join fellow Dallasites — some of whom are decked out in turkey and pilgrim costumes — at City Hall Plaza for the 5K or 8-mile race.
