"Jane McGarry and husband Kevin’s Fort Worth residence is full of foreign flavor and sensational hues.
News Anchorwoman Jane McGarry met designer Ken Blasingame (the man designed the White House for Dubya) in Dallas, TX."
"Jane says color makes her happy. So she must be downright ecstatic as soon as she hits her driveway—her front door is lime green."
I think this place is great.
"A brilliant orange dining room with rich terra cotta walls housing collections of Italian and Mexican blue and white ceramics, green velvet chairs, and a profusion of pink and orange gladioli. Of the dining room, Jane says, “This is my favorite room. It’s so rich and vibrant.” All the color makes their guests happy, too. The McGarrys often entertain during the weekends."
An Television Anchorwoman (isn't she adorable?)
"On television, Jane is a bit formal—coiffed, buttoned up, and the consummate professional. But at home, the suits give way to workout clothes—she runs daily—suitable for the comfortable life she shares with Kevin and son Michael (not to mention all of Michael’s football and baseball friends) and the dog Chocolate. She is enthusiastic about her home and the things in it. Of her job, she says, “How you present yourself, the colors you wear, and the words you say are all part of a daily art production.” The same could be said about her lovely and vibrant home."
All of this reminds me of a company I worked for for years in the 90's (with heavy Mexican influences),
Casa Casa. There was a showroom in Boca Raton, and one on Worth Avenue in Palm Beach.
These rooms remind me of some of the work we did.
This look was very hot in Florida back then.
I still like the look, although I am not into the Santos.
But hey, it's only my opinion.
Out west.... people are still into it, and might always be.
What do you think of the kitchen?
I love the turquoise....
but not in this kitchen.
How about this fireplace mantle ??
I am in the process of doing a linen headboard for a client just like this one.
What is your take on these rooms?
Would you, could you live with all this color?
