Step inside interior designer Jean Liu’s magical world! Her historic Dallas home, built in 1928 by esteemed architect Hal Thompson, offers so much more than just jaw-dropping curb appeal; inside this cavernous beauty, the walls are filled with Liu’s eclectic collection of art that she and her family have carefully and thoughtfully collected over the years. The long hallways of her expansive home are filled with laughter from her daughter Cricket and tail-wagging from the family dog, Comet. Couple those joyful noises with the beautifully appointed rooms swathed in Jean’s distinct style and you have a masterful mix of luxury design and casual living. While Jean’s work leans more contemporary, she struck a delicate balance between the home’s traditional bones and her flair for the modern. From bold wallpapers (even on the ceilings) to a few Johnathan Adler pills scattered about a coffee table, the contemporary accents spar with the classic architecture to create a unique mosaic that is utterly timeless. Watch and see how Liu, and her discerning eye for pitch perfect interior design, has made this house a home.
