Seven striking staircases

These seven staircases (all from Sebastian projects) are proof that even transitional spaces can be artfully designed. These eye-catching stairs are perfect for making grand entrances.

The staircase at the St. John’s residence, designed by Larry E. Boerder, with interiors by Betty Lou Phillips, evokes a picture-postcard perfect Christmas morning.

The staircase at Preston Road, below, originally designed by DC Broadstone and remodeled by Richard Giegengack, with interior design by John Phifer Marrs Interiors.

Larry E Boerder Architects designed the staircase at gorgeous staircase at the Oaks residence, while Kirsten-Kelli created the interiors.

San Antonio’s Lake | Flato Architects designed the modern Watuaga residence, with interiors by Nancy Leib.

Highland Park is another residence designed by Quinlan Terry and updated by the inimitable Larry E Boerder. London’s Mlinaric Henry & Zervudachi Ltd designed the interiors.

Hablinski-Manion Architects show their unique style in the Desert I residence, with interiors by Hallberg Wiseley Designers.

Striking black and white lacquer stairs make a strong visual impact in the DeLoache residence, designed by Robert AM Stern Architects.

Featured: Corley Design Associates

While some interior designers boast about their signature style, the website of Corley Design Associates proudly touts that the firm has “no signature style.” Principals Dawn Bergman and Julie Stryker – professionals who worked alongside founder David Corley for 15 years – believe that not being known for a particular design aesthetic lets them put “clients’ likes and dislikes first, thus helping them develop and hone their own personal style.”

David Corley Interior Design launched in 1993, after a partnership with Joe Minton as Minton-Corley. Today, Bergan and Stryker continue to carry out David’s vision, style, and impeccable reputation.

Eschewing trends for “quality and timelessness” Corley Design Associates’ work appears in books, in magazines and on awards across Texas and beyond. A Dallas perennial favorite, CDA has been named a Best Designer by DHome in 2014, 2015, 2016 and 2017.

Let’s take a closer look at a Sebastian/Corley Design Associates collaboration, Aledo Ranch. With architecture by Turner Boaz, this project artfully melds cowboy-chic with sublime comfort and a touch of whimsy.

In progress: Preston Hollow Residence by Booziotis

Enjoy a sneak peek at this sleek modern residence, designed by the inimitable Bill Booziotis, who passed away June 2016. The Dallas News called Booziotis one of Dallas’ “most thoughtful and beloved figures.” We couldn’t agree more – Bill was a brilliant architect who made work a pleasure.

He has forever left his mark on Dallas, through his service to community and through unique homes like this one, currently under construction in Preston Hollow.

Trend file: Spectacular wine cellars

Step aside, France and Italy. Despite Europe’s vino-loving reputation, the US has been the largest wine consuming nation since 2010.

The Silicon Valley Bank’s 2017 State of the Wine Industry report has good news for both the industry and for wine consumers: wine sales are up, unemployment is down. The report also points to trends such as the growth in demand for higher-end wines and the steady increase of per-capita consumption.

As our love of wine grows, so does our desire to make wine enjoyment integral to our daily lives.

At Sebastian, we’ve witnessed this firsthand. Rather than stashing their collection in a dusty basement closet, owners of Sebastian-built homes are having custom wine cellars and wine caves designed, with all the creature comforts you can imagine.

Pop a cork and enjoy these premium custom wine cellars:
