Dallas Modern Home Tour: Architecture Voyeurs, Unite


How badly do you want to live in these freaking amazing houses? High ceilings, fine lines, and light -- oh, sweet beautiful light -- pouring in through abundant oversized windows. You and your houseplants would live perpetually invigorated, both the philodendron and your joy quadrant would quadruple in size.

Lovely art would be carefully placed and lit on your massive walls, providing a comforting glow as you and your interesting, jet-setting friends recline on original Eames commander chairs and bicker about the value of Bauhaus versus Usonion structure, while opulently flipping through Design Within Reach catalogs before storing them away in some secret wall nook/bookshelf that clicks open when tapped. Your ultra modern home is designed to allow the modern minimalist to also be a mild hoarder.

This is living.

Now let's look at architectural porn as we browse happily through some homes that will be featured on the Dallas Modern Home Tour next Saturday from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Tickets cost $25 in advance and $30 the day of, a bargain for that much daydreaming. Get them here.
