5350 Falls Road Front

Patricia Stampley will hold open the six-bedroom estate home at 5830 Falls Road from 2 to 5 p.m. on April 24. This exceptional new-construction residence in Old Preston Hollow is offered for $5.25 million.

It seemed as if, during the turn of the 21st Century, every builder under the sun wanted to try their hand at designing a Mediterranean. What we ended up with was a bunch of half-done, mish-mash homes that all sort of look the same. It gave the style a bad name, that’s for sure.

But this Mediterranean is helping win people back to the style, with its unique facade and fabulous interiors. Perfect for today’s luxury homebuyers, this stunning example of Mediterranean done right at 5350 Falls Road in Old Preston Hollow is listed with Patricia Stampley of Ebby Halliday Realtors for $5.25 million. You can see all of the details that make this home the perfect warm embrace to the end of your day at her open house on Sunday, April 24, from 2 to 5 p.m.

Of course, I got an advance tour with Patricia herself!

Shay Geyer of IBB Design is in the running for the 2016 New Trads Rising Stars of Design by Traditional Home.

We absolutely adore Shay Geyer’s Hollywood Regency-meets-transitional aesthetic. She combines colors and shapes with glitz and glamour, all of which you can find in IBB Design Fine Furnishings. So we weren’t suprised to see Shay among the nominees for the 2016 New Trads Rising Stars of Design from Traditional Home.

“I am so honored to have been nominated amongst some of the country’s best design talent,” Geyer said.  “This contest is the perfect opportunity to showcase my work to the editors of Traditional Home and highlight the amazing talent and resources we have to offer our design clients here in Dallas.”

You can vote for Shay once every day on the magazine’s website. The top 50 designers with the most votes will move on to the finals, where a panel of judges will determine the 10 winners.

“To be selected amongst the group of 2016 New Trad Rising Stars would be a dream come true and pinnacle point in my career,” Geyer added. “I’d be so grateful for the support of our community by voting for me for this wonderful opportunity.”

Of course, if you’ve already planned to vote for Shay, but you want to get a little more insight into her personal style, check out her Starwood home that she just put on the market two weeks ago. The gorgeous Frisco home at 5504 Burkett is listed with Ebby Halliday Realtors Pam and Mike Harvey for $1.25 million. It has five bedrooms, five full and two half baths, a game room and a media room, as well as a beautifully landscaped backyard with plenty of room for entertaining.
