Traditional Home in a Neutral Color Scheme That You’ll Love

Happy New Year and welcome to a beautiful and serene traditional home by SHM Architects that feels comfortable and spacious in its neutral color scheme. Both the interior and exterior spaces were given careful thought and design consideration. I’m especially fond of the home’s outside curb appeal.

Today’s home is located in Dallas, Texas. It’s filled with classic furniture and traditional style. Not too stuffy, and not too cutesy, it maintains a balance of timeless appeal.

A charming dining nook is tucked off to the side of the sitting area that’s adjacent to the kitchen. A pretty fireplace and landscape painting are the focal point of this cozy little gathering spot.

A built-in banquette, painted plank ceiling, and windows all around make this dining nook a wonderful spot for morning coffee or a mid-day lunch with friends.

Here you can see how the sitting area is right off the light-filled custom kitchen.

A closer view of the kitchen reveals its details like the large window and kitchen island with built-in shelving for cookbooks.

A beamed ceiling presides over the gorgeous living room with its classic furniture and floral patterned area rug. A mix of antiques and new pieces come together for timeless appeal.

Warm wood paneling and a built-in bookcase hug the home office. Paneling used to be associated with the seventies, but it’s making a comeback and you’ll see it more in interior spaces.

What a beautiful ceiling with a hint of color in a gorgeous bedroom. The neutral color scheme is both elegant and comforting. I love the addition of the little square window above the main window.

This bedroom isn’t quite as grand, but it’s equally pretty. I think white bedrooms are peaceful and serene. Plus that comforter looks like a big fluffy cloud you want to sink in to.

The outdoor living spaces of this traditional home in Dallas are just as stunning as the inside. Since it’s Texas, you’ll find several outdoor areas for entertaining and gardening. This space is ideal since the roof shields you from the sun and there’s even a fan above.

A beautiful fountain bowl takes center stage in a garden courtyard. Every home should have some type of water feature, but then, I work for a company who creates them. But seriously, you’ll be amazed by the peace that can be generated by the sound of flowing water in the garden.

From the garden spaces to the interior rooms, this Dallas home is pretty close to perfection. The beautiful curb appeal tells the story of the beauty that’s inside.

  1. A very nice home. I love the color of the ceiling in the master bedroom. I couldn’t figure out if it was more green or blue but no matter it was a pretty color. If I was ever to be able to have an island I too would want shelves at the end for my cookbooks as of now my favorites are piled on top of my fridge. I could see my Dad living in this home for he loves traditional and the beiges/brown/rust colors with those pops of blue. Thanks for posting.

  2. This is a beautiful home, inside and out. Thanks for sharing it.
    I especially liked the garden areas….ahhh……one more month or so until Spring, right?

  3. J agree, the outside is well done right to the large tree, that I love. The kitchen is very pretty I wonder what color is used on the cabinets. They aren’t bright white but not a yellow ivory either. Hmm… Happy New Year’s day. 2024 here we come.
