Accent Garde: Find Statement-Worthy Decor at This Wycliff Home Store

Decorative statements are seldom built with a whisper—and as aesthetics go, Dallas’ new Garde is unabashedly outspoken. The West Coast import, owned by California ex-pats Scotti Sitz and John Davidson, opened a 6,000-sq.-foot retail store on Wycliff late last yr, showcasing an expertly curated blend of lights, furnishings, and dwelling equipment by emerging and set up designers from around the earth. Coveted worldwide lines—including Parisian brand name Pierre Augustin Rose, Milan’s cc-tapis, and London designer Faye Toogood—are interspersed with domestic choices from the likes of Equipment, Bec Brittain, and Ben and Aja Blanc.

Irrespective of their countries of origin, however, the makers highlighted at Garde have one factor in popular. “There’s a significant thing to consider for what they are placing out there and how they do it,” Sitz states. “We get in touch with it slow home furniture due to the fact it is in many cases one particular of a variety. That I really appreciate.” Rhonda Reinhart

Does every single room need to have a assertion piece? 

We posed this inquiries to interior designers throughout Dallas. Here’s what they explained.

“No, I believe a area must be a wonderful composition of things that guidance each individual other.” —Mil Bodron, Bodron/Fruit

“I like to rely on the entire composition to be the dialogue. I like unique but peaceful information used liberally.” —Barry Williams, Williams Design Inc.

“If you’ve led an appealing existence, you are heading to come across some thing to converse about in every single area. Don’t try to pressure it.” —John Bobbitt, Bobbitt & Organization
