Quick: For a Chance to Win a Pair of Custom Lamps from StyleSWOON.com

Custom Lamps by The Lamp Shoppe Dallas, Texas - Melissa Woody

Samantha: “Lucky for us (and by us I mean you and I) Melissa Woody is a good friend of Becky Frey. I wrote about one of her stunning mineral lamps in FD last year and since she has opened a store called The Lamp Shoppe in the Design District. She can make a lamp out of anything. Minerals, driftwood, antiques, you name it, she can make it – oh, and it will be exquisite. Add on options of tons of finials, lucite bases, custom shades and even cord options (did you even know there was such a thing?). So when Becky told me she was going to partner with “Woody” to make a lamp for the giveaway you bet I was excited.”

“There are those of us who love homes but hate grass. What the heck is so wonderful about it anyhow? It sucks up water we need to preserve, it burns up in August, it gets muddy, soggy, chiggers and collects dog poop. Grass, who needs it?

But I like homes, so this one might really be my dream home. 9011 Prominence is basically a 6,000 square foot patio home built in 1993, hence the great pricing: $499,000. (Today I saved you a dollar, don’t ever say I don’t give you anything.)  But in five years when we won’t be able to water our lawns, you will see more homes like 9011.

“The story here is families who want good schools and a big house don’t need to move to Plano to find one,” says listing agent Becky Frey. Big? The house is enormous: six bedrooms, four and a half baths. “And you are a hop or short walk from White Rock Lake.”

You get the updated kitchen, formals, a den, and that private, lush master on the first floor. Bye, kiddos, go upstairs and STAY upstairs unless someone is bleeding. Master has access to back patio and splash pool — yes, there is a pool! Upstairs you find a game room with wet bar and a balcony which is great for entertaining. There is a great view of the church steeple next door which is very soothing and church bells! Reminds me of Dartmouth! You also have many rooms for offices, media or playrooms. Great closets, big comfy kitchen, three fireplaces, workbench, mature rose bushes to fill you vase. Just. No. Grass.”
