Seen: Fort Worth Villa / by Lynnea Schwieters

About two summers ago I had the privilege of working with my college professor on a project in the Colonial neighborhood in Fort Worth, Texas. Gale VanAckeran designs are well-put, magnificent, and understated. Here are images from the Modern Italian style villa that you won't find anywhere else but here on Site and Seen.

 

 

As you enter the house the formal living room and baby grand piano welcomes you.

Doggy door opens to a private courtyard

Every space need just a touch of animal print

The colors are interesting and rich and the floorplan is simple and comfortable

Kitchen with oversized island and jade green wall tiles

The grandiose dining room with empire style chairs by Baker
