Philippe Ho, founder of Studio 8 Design, describes his interior design philosophy as a dynamic fusion of the classic and contemporary. This Dallas Residence is no different, while mostly contemporary it has wonderful classic details that make this home one of a kind. We had the privilege to talk with Philippe about this amazingly stylish bachelor pad and he discussed some of the ups and downs of this extensive project.
Philippe’s client is a bachelor that travels extensively and wanted to come back to a “hotel atmosphere that felt like home”. He was also inspired by the trendy Zaza Boutique Hotel in Dallas. One of the challenges Philippe had to face was the existing collections that the client had inherited from his family. Philippe’s job was to add cohesion and unity to these pieces while keeping the contemporary feel his client so strongly desired. Despite the challenges faced, the end project was sleek and contemporary and the client’s feedback was positive. “It’s a wonderful feeling when you can walk into your home and feel like you’re on a mini vacation,” said the client.
Join us as we take a mini tour of this luxurious Dallas Bachelor Pad.
The clients request was that the interior to feel like a hotel – sleek, comfort,cosmopolitan and luxurious, and this dining room is a clear example of just that.
The design phase started out with the living room as the center of entertainment for Philippe’s client. The different pieces that were selected for the room were based on the client’s lifestyle.
One of Philippe’s challenges was the antler chandelier in the living room. ” I figured what could be more Texas than that, I chose to design around that element and flow out from there to make it more innovative and to be able to capture the atmosphere of a boutique hotel that he was inspired by.”
This wonderful office space is bathed in natural light and fresh elements, which make it a great room to be productive in.
