Home Improvement in Dallas

List of Top Home Improvement Pros in Dallas…

“Bella Vista helped us turn our house into a home. We transformed our kitchen and dining room to give our house an open, airy, comfortable feel. We also took our outdated master bathroom and created a spa-like retreat.

Not only did we love their work — from the design phase to the finished product — but they provide stellar customer service. We highly recommend them!” – missmallorylynne

A Must-See Outdoor Showhouse Space – Robert Allen Design

Robert Allen Designer Showhouse

Robert Allen Showroom

Alfresco Elegance

From the living room by Robert Frank to this loggia by Ederra Design Studio, the Pasadena Showcase House of Design was full of Robert Allen and Beacon Hill fabrics. For their concept, “Cocktails at Five,” designers Cynthia Lambakis and Samantha Williams used indoor/outdoor patterns in navy and turquoise hues from our new Wanderlust and Cloudscape collections.

“We wanted the fabrics to be sophisticated… blurring the lines between the interior and exterior spaces.”

Sheers enhanced the “living room” feel and framed the view for a happy hour setting as dreamy as the movie La La Land—which you may recognize the loggia from.
