Museum Tower Model Homes: Emily Summers Neutral Palette for a Building, a Work of Art Itself

Share News:

Emily Summers used pieces from her own furniture collection, as well as from the delectable SMINK here in the Dallas Design District to keep it soft and subtle and let the art sing. Her giant 4096 square foot model home seemed to take up an entire floor, and really, walking in there was almost like being on a cloud. Unlike Schooler’s complete change of wall finishes, Summers kept the original finishes, and the furnishings she brought in enhanced them. But she did lighten the floors, which you can see in the photo below. Amazing what a feel changing floor coloring can bring. Ashley Tatum’s art choices almost seemed as if they were created for their spaces. The design of a home, says Summers,  is a window into one’s soul.
