HOUSE TOUR: A SPECTACULAR SPANISH REVIVAL IN DALLAS

Miles of ironwork and painstaking consideration to the flow of the designs — from exterior perimeter to front entry, from foyer to stairway, from living room to wine cellar — showcase a wide range of Solara's work.

HOUSE TOUR: A SPECTACULAR SPANISH REVIVAL IN DALLAS

Custom home builder MMH Homes worked with renowned Dallas architect Lloyd Lumpkins to bring to life a magnificent Spanish Revival home in the older part of the exclusive Preston Hollow neighborhood. The 12,400-square-foot house has seven bedrooms and nine bathrooms, as well as two offices and a five-car garage. Built on spec, it’s sure to soon be the dream home of some lucky family.

Solara was an essential part of the design team on this house. We created many authentic ironwork designs for outside and inside: Balconies, doors, lanterns, interior lighting, railings, and more accent this home and elevate it to perfection. The flow of seemingly miles of ironwork was painstakingly considered, so that from moment to moment designs and patterns complement rather than repeat.

The house sits on a large and beautifully treed lot, so it has a rural estate feel. Nevertheless, it is in the heart of the city, and custom gates and perimeter fencing create privacy and security.

To set an impressive stage and warmly welcome all who visit, we designed a soaring iron front entry door. Above it, a delightful Romeo balcony.

Second-story doors are secured with iron window balconies. Other windows around the house have protective iron guards. Additional iron accents make this home's exterior extra special.

Gorgeous gas lanterns with Flemish glass light the exterior. Though similar in style to our Cadiz family of iron lights, they are custom for this home.

Inside the house is a mix of transitional and contemporary ironwork and lighting. Solara crafted doors, pendants, chandeliers, and more for the many spaces in the home — from kitchen to wine cellar to family room to even hallways and closets.

The designers placed transitional chandeliers in some areas of the home; more modern chandeliers in others mean a stylish combination.

The custom chandelier in the breakfast nook has forged-iron leaves and grapes.

For the interior, the collaboration included iron railing for a sweeping staircase. The curving, arching, and crisscrossing ironwork is dizzyingly intriguing on its own, but a modern finish and mounting take it to the next level.
