David Weekly never looked so good! 

Design aficionado and former Real Estate agent Abigail Reynolds transformed an East Dallas “dark and dreary,” in Buckner Terrace to a “fresh and airy” that would generate love in any part of town. And her work proves that a good design eye and talent can transform even the most plain of Janes — in this case, a budget minded David Weekly home — into a world of clean living with color.

When asked to describe her home, a certified David Weekly green – build in a coveted gated neighborhood adjacent to downtown and White Rock Lake, Reynolds says one word comes to mind: color.

“Don’t get me wrong, I’m a fan of color pops and love to incorporate color accents into designing a space that is fun and beautiful. I draw a lot of energy from our years in Palm Springs and Los Angeles, but this house was something else color wise,” says Reynolds. “Something else! It had no cohesion to the color choices and needed a complete design overhaul.”
