D esigner Melissa Gerstle landscaped the front lawn to be in symmetry with the uniquely shaped house. A wall of 12-foot shrubs backed New York artist Carolyn Salas' Gone sculpture, a powder-coated aluminum work that depicts a woman fleeing. Poufs and sofas by Brown Jordan and Sutherland surrounded the sculpture, while a nearby seating area was draped with lanterns. MELISSA GERSTLE MELISSA GERSTLE DESIGN DALLAS NICKOLAS SARGENT NICKOLAS SARGENT W hen the pandemic started, top party planner Todd Fiscus turned his attention to design, honing skills that were on full display beside the show house's glittering pool. Sphinx structures and an antique French fountain were sourced from Pittet Architecturals, while a newly constructed fireplace beckons guests during cooler months. In place of a former pool shed, Fiscus crafted something dear to his heart, a folly, to create balance in the side yard, filled with textiles from Perennials and Morris & Co. "My mom passed away in May, so I named all of this after her," he says. "She loved blue and white." Peninsula dining tables, Neo chaise lounge chairs, Dickinson hoofed side tables; cantilever umbrella, John Himmel sofa, and Louis armless chairs in pool folly, all from David Sutherland. Fabric: Loop De Loop Blanca on dining chairs and chaise cushions, En Plein Air rug in folly, Perennials. Willow Boughs indigo on dining chairs and Fruit Stripe indigo on lounge chairs on upper terrace; Rosehip mineral drapes and pillows, Zoffany, Morris & Co. from Sanderson Design Group.
