Divine Dwelling - Home of Kelli Ford

Photograph courtesy of Kirsten Kelli, kirstenkelli.com. 

There are lovely homes, chic homes, tasteful & classy homes, and then there are those that blow all the others away.  When I first saw photos of Kelli Ford's Dallas home, I was rendered speechless. With the help of her sister Kirsten Fitzgibbons, this power-twosome created a pied-a-terre rich with color, full of incredible design, a bit of whimsy and a few traditional touches that all come together with seamless perfection. Every room is full of surprises and small details that are mixed and matched to shine brightly. This might just be my dream home, or as close to it as I've ever seen.

So pretty and glamorous! all i think of when I see a house that large is, "I'd hate to clean it." I'm sure she has help, right? Teri

Erin said...

The veranda and the outdoor fireplace almost killed me with their perfection. I love how grand and opulent everything is, but I do think this is too much house for me. I don't know how I would keep it all clean!

Theresa / inspirationCOOPERATIVE said...

OH my! You're right, all the little details is what really takes this house to the next level. The ikat wallpaper in the dining room and the entire blue living room with ethnic inspired wallpaper and drapes are my favorite.
Ha, whenever I'm in a really large home, the cleaning factor always comes to mind. They surely have help.

California Chic said...

@Teri - so funny. I always think about that too, but I'm guessing they do!

@Erin - I love some grandeur too, but as with so many of the houses I see these days, they are way too big for anyone to live in, let alone clean! I really love the outdoor areas too..dreaming of some gorgeous patio furniture!

@Theresa - I think my favorite room in the house is the dining room. That ikat wallpaper with the bold mirror and luxe chandelier...love how everything comes together! And that blue room..no words. So genius!

DO YOU KNOW HOW MANY HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF STARVING PEOPLE IN THE WHOLE UNITED STATES COULD NEVER BE HUNGRY AGAIN. ESPECIALLY WITH THE RICH PERSON BEFORE YOU THAT SPENT MORE THAN 78 MILLION DOLLARS. ARE YOU PEOPLE RETARDEDLY GREEDY,SO SELFISH AND DON'T DESERVE TO BE HUMANS.

@Anonymous - Teach a man to fish and he will feed himself. Give a man a fish and he will always be waiting for the handout!
A project like this just employed hundreds if not thousands of people. From the people that weave the fabric to the crew that constructed the buildings.

I think this is an extremely tasteful and beautifully designed place.

I crеаte a leave a rеsponsе when I especiаlly еnjoу a
article on a website οr I haѵе somеthіng tο contributе

Uѕually it's caused by the sincerness communicated in the article I browsed. And on this article "Divine Dwelling - Home of Kelli Ford". I was actually excited enough to leave a thought ;) I do have a couple of questions for you if it'ѕ allright.

Is it just me or do a few of the commentѕ appear lіκе written by brain
ԁead pеople? :-P Аnd, if you are writing at additiοnal places, I'd like to keep up with anything fresh you have to post. Could you make a list the complete urls of all your community sites like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?
