sneak peek: kate and ryan white of fossil

by anne

i’ve always dreamed of living an apartment that originally served another purpose, and kate and ryan white – catalog merchant and watch designer for fossil – are living my dream. this couple that got married last september found their first home in a 1920s building that used to be the department store tiche-goettinger [in dallas]. not only do they have a great location downtown, but their home is where the president’s office was located. their suite has kept its historical and architectural appeal with gorgeous wood paneling, authentic casement windows, ornate crown molding, panoramic views of the city, and to top it off, a bathroom with a stall! click here for more full-sized images, and stay tuned for more sneak peeks from fossil! [thanks, kate and ryan!]anne

[above: This is where the president’s secretary’s office was located.  We built a planter in the windowsill which is full of succulent plants.  This window overlooks the park. All the art-work in our home was painted by my talented husband.  See his artwork right here]

I like the cool shades of aqua and green in our bedroom.  Our dresser was a wedding present given to my parents over 30 years ago.


Pedestal sink, original black & white hexagon tile, and a marble stall for the bathroom.  Yes-a stall!

We have a galley style kitchen and I love the vintage green pendant lights!
