A Dallas Home Gets a Stylish Yet Inviting Update
CANTONI DESIGNER JIJI AOUJI HELPS REVITALIZE A PRESTON HOLLOW HOME INTO A MODERN AND STYLISH HAVEN WITH ULTRA-CHIC FURNISHINGS THAT BOAST COMFORT AND WARMTH.
Step into the family room and you can’t help but feel drawn to the sumptuous Versa Grand Sectional, which looks towards the relaxed design of Gamma’s Loft Chairs and the kitchen beyond. Against the side wall, the home’s stark white walls and floors are contrasted beautifully by an impressive wood wall TV unit that is layered with various décor pieces to showcase Marina’s style. And in the main dining room, the high-style comfort continues. Malerba’s One and Only Side Chairs are clean and refined, making them the perfect companion to the sleek, One and Only oval-shaped dining table.
But the spaces that Jiji enjoyed designing the most were the bedrooms. “Marina really had each family member’s preference in mind,” she said. “She wanted to make sure everyone was pleased with their rooms.” In the master, Jiji opted for the Secret Love Bed and New in Town Nightstand and casegoods to complement the elegant statement chandelier. In the guest bedroom, Marina really wanted visitors to feel a sense of Zen, so Jiji paired the Lima Chair with the Benny Accent Tables to offer guests an additional spot for relaxation. For her son’s bedroom, Marina and Jiji chose a subtle yet chic low-profile leather bed to complement the bold custom street art wall.
As you walk through the finished home, it is apparent that each area exudes the comfort and warmth that Marina had envisioned. Each room stands out on its own but comes together as a cohesive whole that Marina and her family can call home. “That’s what I really like about this project, each room feels different,” says Jiji. “The entryway is symmetrical, the double ceiling height provides dimension, the big glass panels to the outdoor area create light, and the dropdown chandeliers are grand and inviting.”
