If you’ve been looking for an event where you can hold a cocktail in one hand, mini quiche in another, and listen to some of the best modern designers in Dallas talk about some of the best modern homes — first of all, that’s oddly specific and second of all, The Dallas Architecture Forum’s got you. It’s time for their 365 Modern Living Cocktail Series beginning Tuesday, May 21, from 6 to 8 p.m. Three evenings, three houses, and three opportunities to discreetly wipe the drool from your lower lip.

This year’s theme is “I want that.”

JK. It’s Modern Living Every Day of the Year. And we should all live modernly all year long.

If you’re saying to yourself, “CandysDirt.com, should I attend these evenings?” The short answer is yes and the long answer is heck yes.

P.S. This majestic series sold out last year, so get on it if you love clean design, thoughtful architecture, own cocktail attire, are a bubbly conversationalist, or if you have ears. 

“Ears?”

Yes, ears.

Each evening there will be a short presentation from the actual designers of the homes. Which is even more exciting than you’re imagining right now. The creativity and attention to detail that goes into every inch of these homes will inspire you and open your mind to possibilities you never dreamed of. Maybe you’ll apply them to your own home or maybe you’ll just worship at the altar of what’s in front of you, either way, this year’s line-up is a can’t miss.
