The master bathroom at Kevin and Brad Twitty’s house. They transformed a 1970’s ranch into an elegant, fun space with original character and modern looks and function.

Have you ever wondered if interior designers live in homes as fabulous as the ones they create?

One of our favorite designers, Kevin Twitty of IBB Design Fine Furnishings in Frisco, is giving us a sneak peek into his soon-to-be-listed house, and showing us before-and-after photos of the 1970s ranch he and his partner Brad bought three years ago. As you can see, Kevin and Brad have made exactly the kind of stylish, elegant, fun space you would expect of one of most creative designers in Dallas and his significant other.kevin twitty BEFORE living roomLocated at 9701 Vista Oaks Dr., this is a 3,314-square-foot home in Town Creek, near Royal Lane and Abrams Road (located in Richardson ISD). The couple made a conscience effort to enhance the charm that was already in the home by preserving original stonework and natural cedar in the great room atrium, master bath atrium, and covered outdoor patio.

“It’s amazing how the home’s original character can looks so fresh when you modernize the elements around it,” Kevin said.

Their partnership was perfect for creating this space—Kevin is an interior designer and very much about the creative inspiration; Brad is a project manager at an IT consulting firm and focused on the function side of things. Together, they made magic in this renovation.

This property will be listed Wednesday by Ray Mach of Raymond Leon & Associates for $524,900, and there is an open house Sunday, April 24, from 12 – 2 p.m.
