What makes a great house? “It’s all about texture, scale, and detail,” said Lisa Luby Ryan. And Ryan should know. She designed this modern neoclassical mansion in Old Preston Hollow from the ground up. Ryan has been one of the go-to interior designers in Dallas for years. Her firm, Lisa Luby Ryan Design & Build, is responsible for some of the most luxurious, but livable homes in America.
One of the toughest things about new construction is finding a way to add character so a home is not just another white box. It helps to have a stellar team comprised of not only Ryan, but also architect Richard Drummond Davis, and builder Mark L. Rose. Harold Leidner added the perfect touch to the landscape.
Ryan and her team excel at building in character. “We’re known for mixing in old elements, that look like they’ve been there forever, with the new materials,” she said.
