The third annual Kips Bay Decorator Show House in Dallas is currently on view through September 25th, 2022. Elysian Collective co-founder Michael had the exciting opportunity to collaborate with her long-time friend and fellow Designer, Jessica Davis of Atlanta based Atelier Davis. Jessica and Michael brought their creativity together to envision and select a few hand-crafted pieces from Elysian Collective's line that would flow beautifully with Atelier Davis' design of the primary hall and powder bath. Michael's styling eye brings a unique, sometimes quirky, special touch and interesting visual layer to the stunning space.
HALLWAY INTERIOR DESIGN - A TEXAS SORBET SUNSET
A native Texan herself, Jessica gave a nod to the house’s surroundings with a sorbet-colored hue (Benjamin Moore's Grazing Fawn) on the walls to mimic the warm golden hour glow from the late afternoon sun. An eye-catching onyx-print wallcovering by York Wallcoverings, reminiscent of limestone abundant throughout the state, caps off the space at the ceiling, while a deep clay colored staccato print drapery by Brook Perdigon Textiles envelops the space creating a jewel-box like effect.
"Jessica's stunning design elevates a pass-through space into a destination where you wish to linger."
Perched atop the elegant ebony console table at the landing is Elysian Collective's limited-edition Latona Bronze sculpture, whose feminine curves and natural bronze patina perfectly accent the earthy elements that flank it.
Further into the hall a painting of Texas flora by talented Dallas and Austin-based artist Erika Huddleston anchors a chartreuse velvet-covered bench, which is draped with our Abans Linen throw, softening the space with it’s natural earthtones and flowy character.

POWDER BATH INTERIOR DESIGN - THE EXCLAMATION POINT
The color palette deepens as you move into the powder bath, which is expertly swathed in a West Texas desert-hued stone mosaic by Artistic Tile. Perfectly adorning the dramatic autumnal vanity top, also by Artistic Tile, is a selection of Elysian Collective vases: The Forma Rosa Wave Form vases in matte black and experimental green complement each other while bringing nature in with their soft, organic silhouettes and finish. The Wave Red Clay Vase by Oaxaca-based rrres estudio anchors the trio and pulls in the warmth of the surrounding finishes.
Juxtaposing the Kohler faceted glass vessel sink is a trio of our beloved Bola Sabão soapstone pots, whose brass accents echo the jewel-like sink hardware. As a perfect flourish, the Rosa Negra scented candle infuses the room with the subtle fragrance of rose, cedar, amyris and amber grey, solidifying the memory of this unforgettable space.
