At Dallas Moderns, we get excited about modern design. We love to hear from local interior designers about how they transform the blasé to the bold and extraordinary. That’s why we’re starting the Dallas Moderns Q&A series, where we ask the best modern designers the secrets of their trade.
We’re so thrilled to have Best of Houzz 2014 and D Best winner (2014, 2013, 2012, and 2011) Mary Anne Smiley to kick off the series. For those of you new to the Dallas interior design block, Mary Anne Smiley Interiors ranks as one of Dallas’ most sought-after designers, featured in exclusive publications such as D Magazine, Patron, Luxe, D Design book, Southern Accents, and Modern Luxury, to name a few. Smiley’s eye for color; sophisticated, luxe, modern look; and keen sense of style win over even the most timid of homeowners.
Smiley graciously invited us into her home so we could talk over some questions about modern style–and design in general. Here’s a bit of our conversation. Keep watching Dallas Moderns to see more of her insights in the coming months.
In our first video, Smiley answers the question: “What is the most difficult thing for people considering a design change?” Click the play button above to hear her insightful answer.
