Gilded,Texas Inspired by European decorations of the Gilded Age, Michael Aiduss Studio dresses a Texas brick Georgian house with layered elegance. Photographed by Bjorn Wallander The Georgian house selected for the 2021 Kips Bay Decorator Showhouse sits quietly in the Old Preston Hollow District of Dallas, taking its place in a line of estates shrouded in Live Oaks and Southern Magno- lias. e strict georgian vernacular creates a calming sense of classical proportion and scale. Michael Aiduss Studio was selected to conceptualize not only a design for the Living Room but also an elaborate backstory and fantasy client, resulting in a dashing expatriate returning home with his new French wife. Re-nam- ing the the Living Room "e Salon", the plan was to bring a classically European sense of style to the interi- or appointments and surround them with architectur- al detailing that is part Edwin Lutyens and part French Beaux-Arts. Custom plaster mouldings, fireplace and door and window casings were commissioned by lo- cal artisan Casci Plaster with great effect, resulting in a beautifully soft palette that captures and holds the natural light. e final touch was contributed by art- ist Barry Martin and his delicate painted accents to the architectural mouldings. e interior decoration is a collection of antiques and commissioned pieces, grouped together in quiet sophistication.
