We love to boast about how ingenious and imaginative the housing construction and design pros are in North Texas. So when Houzz announced their winners of “Best Of Houzz 2015” awards, it was no surprise that Dallas-Fort Worth made quite a splash.
Houzz is an online home remodeling and design site that showcases the work of architects, homebuilders, interior designers, landscape pros, and other residential remodeling professionals. Their Best Of Houzz awards come in two categories: customer service and design. Customer service honors are determined by a variety of factors, including the number and quality of client reviews from 2014. Design winners’ work ranked most popular among the more than 25 million monthly users on the site.
I’ve spent the better part of the last five days combing through the champs, savoring the superb photos, and picking a few of my favorites to share with you today. Candy already mentioned Tatum Brown Custom Homes’ win yesterday, but I’ve got a few others that caught my eye.
First, all five of the designers I wrote about at the beginning of the month in 5 Dallas Interior Designers to Watch in 2015 were Houzz winners (bam!), so a huge shout-out to these five:
- Kevin Twitty: service award
- Barbara Gilbert Interiors: service award
- Dona Rosene Interiors: design and service awards
- Traci Connell Interiors: design and service awards
- RSVP Design Services, Rhonda Vandiver-White: design and service awards
Here are seven other DFW Houzz winners that will impress you with their discerning style and exquisite work.
1. CAROLINA V. GENTRY, RID: DESIGN AND SERVICE AWARDS
Carolina V. Gentry is a principal interior designer at Pulp Design Studios in East Dallas and her aesthetic is fluid and elegant. What I loved most about her interior designs was the clean, almost architectural feel, and details that feel high-end without being fussy. Many of the photos in her Houzz portfolio feature mirrored or silver accents that lend a midcentury vibe to the overall modern look.
But there’s nothing sterile about her the contemporary ambience—her work is warm and welcoming. She has more than one hundred photos on Houzz that will inspire you. Jump to read about six more winners!
