The 2016 Turtle Creek Association Home Tour is the primary fundraiser for the non-profit organization dedicated to preserving the Turtle Creek area’s 87 acres of greenways and parklands.  The tour offers attendees a rare opportunity to walk through an impressive assortment of luxury homes customized by notable Dallas designers.

This designer showcase of homes offers a rare look at high-rise and upscale living in the Turtle Creek area.  Members of Turtle Creek Association serve as docents in each home sharing information about the owners’ personal art collections, accoutrements and the connection with local artists, designers, architects and builders.

Homes on the Tour:

14 Turtle Creek Bend

Located on the banks of Turtle Creek this three bedroom, three bath home was transformed by architect, Paul Pedigo, and interior designer, Lee Lormand, into light, open, livable spaces that integrate the soft contemporary design of the interior with the beauty of the creek and treed setting. The owners abstract and contemporary art collection includes many Texas artists including ceramic artist Marla Ziegler, sculptors Deborah Ballard and Michael O’Keefe as well as works by Frank Brown, Susan Sales, Gregg Coker, and Devin Nowlin. 

The Warrington, 3831 Turtle Creek Blvd

Former Dallas Mayor and Texas Instruments co-founder, Erik Johnson, originally owned this spectacular two-story penthouse. With the help of interior designer, Elizabeth Robertson, the current owners replaced contemporary decor with Old World European ambiance. Their passion for fine art collecting began many years ago with a portrait by renowned 19th century painter, Nadar (Gaspard-Félix Tournachon), with the background painted by Claude Monet. In addition to an extensive antique and art collection, porcelain dealer Dana Moore, helped acquire an unrivaled collection for the home that includes rare Staffordshire and Delftware pieces. 

3525 Condos

Combining two units, this traditional three bedroom, 4 1/2 bath condo features spectacular views of Turtle Creek and the downtown skyline. The open and comfortable design by architect, Howard Meyer, and interior designer, Brant McFarlain, serves as the perfect backdrop for an extensive art collection, which includes works by Pablo Picasso, Marc Chagall, Annie Leibovitz, Frank Stella, native Texan, Patricia Nix, and Dallas artist David Bates. Other notable pieces include a glass sculpture by Dale Chihuly and items acquired from the estate of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis. 

The Vendome on Turtle Creek, 3505 Turtle Creek Blvd.

Creating a “livable urban space that had the feel of a large Parisian apartment where we could display art” - the decorating goal of the owners of this spectacular home is exquisitely accomplished. The classical French architecture of the Vendome compliments this contemporary two bedroom 4 1/2 bath showpiece by interior designer, David Salem. The art and furnishings are a diverse collection of Modern American and European artists and styles including notable pieces by Pablo Picasso, Marc Chagall, Alexander Calder, Sir Terry Frost, and Dale Chihuly.

Park Towers, 3310 Fairmount St.

Inspired by the mid-century architecture of the Park Towers building, Gary Owens Design, combines mid-century and art deco design elements mixed with modern furnishings to create an elegant yet comfortable home. Large balconies and floor to ceiling windows offer spectacular views of the city. The mid-century modern style is reflected throughout in the furnishings and art highlighted by a commissioned bronze sculpture by Guy Dill, the focal point of the living room.

“This year we are focused on featuring the art along the creek; all homes on the tour have spectacular art collections including regionally and internationally known artists such as Pablo Picasso, Dale Chihuly and Annie Leibovitz,” said Jennifer Shultz, president and CEO of Turtle Creek Association.  “We deeply appreciate the homeowners who have so graciously opened their homes to our fundraising tour.”
