Ready for more gorgeous eye candy from Swiss Avenue in Dallas?
Ok, good, here goes!
This is 5922 Swiss Avenue. From the outside, I wasn’t all that impressed. I’m not a fan of light colored brick and there just wasn’t much going on with it for me. But alas, I walked in the front door and all that changed.
Please pardon the poor angle of the shot of the door. Unless I removed the staircase from the home, this is as good as it was going to get.
Built in 1925 for $25,000, this Italian Renaissance-inspired home was once home to a prominent Dallas attorney and mayor of Rusk, Texas. The house is now a popular location for professional photo shoots and has been used for staging in both the Bombay Company and Peacock Alley catalogs.
The best part about this house is they are able to mix the Italian Renaissance-inspired outside with modern and vintage furnishings on the inside.
The stained glass windows in this room are original to the house and they are absolutely gorgeous!
The crown molding in this room was also amazing. There was so much detail in it!
There was a sitting room in the front of the house as well, and the walls were covered in grasscloth. Unfortunately, the lighting in there wasn’t great, so this was the best shot I could get of it.
What house would be complete without a gallery wall of simple black and white frames filled with pictures of family and friends at the top of the staircase?
Going to the left of the staircase are three kids rooms, two bathrooms and a game room.
The first girls room was amazing. You can tell the family loves color and had fun decorating this space. Everyone that was on the tour loved this room.
The connected bathroom matched the style of the room.
The floor tiles are what really caught my eye. I loved the soft green color on the floor and as the girls grow, the bathroom has the ability to be transformed into an elegant, spa-like retreat.
The next room was a nursery/little boy’s room.
I love the soft colors and green and tan plaid.
The furniture was so fun! The custom paint and design really made the room feel like it was made for a kid.
There was a jack-and-jill bathroom between the nursery another boy’s room, which I didn’t get pictures of.
This bathroom was very similar to the girl’s bathroom, except the floor tiles.
But my favorite part of the house was the master bedroom.
I definitely could have put the tangerine and yellow together, but I would not have been brave enough to throw a dusty blue into the mix. If you ask me though, they nailed it in this room. I am a color lover and this room made me so happy!
I’m digging the vintage chairs in the sitting area of the room. I’m pretty sure I could read right there all day.
And the master bathroom was no let down either.
It’s like their own personal spa. From the dark hardwoods to the green/blue marble and large open windows, this room was perfect.
I love how they mixed the tiles in the shower. So serene.
This is the view of the kitchen from the stairs. I love their family dining area also!
Going to the right of the kitchen you will see the family room. They did a wonderful job of mixing old with new and I love that green is carried throughout all of the downstairs.
That’s it for the inside.
The porch area is also swoon-worthy.
In the back is the garage and carriage house. They renovated the upstairs of the carriage house to be it’s own guest house for when family frequently visits. Best idea ever!
And to finish off the backyard…
The kids get their own tennis court and sport area. Personally, I would have preferred to see a pool, but as my mom pointed out, they have small children and this probably suits their needs now better than a pool would!
So, with a lot to choose from, what is your favorite room in this gorgeous Dallas house?
Or is the style not for you? What don’t you like?
I would love to hear your reactions!
