Cristina Lynch’s Dallas townhome is a home of firsts—it’s the first house the Mi Golondrina founder and her husband bought together, as well as where they welcomed their first child. She was drawn to the warmth and openness of the home, which was designed by Bud Oglesby and had been carefully preserved by the homeowners before them. “My husband and I were just kind of in love with the feeling of the house,” Lynch says. The pair stayed with her parents while the team at SWOON, the Studio completed a design and renovation of the whole house. The project wrapped up in August 2019 with time for them to settle in before their baby girl’s arrival last winter. Now, the space reflects the things Lynch cherishes most—time spent with loved ones, art, travel, and making meaningful memories with a family of her own.
We chatted with Color Kind Studio founder Jill Elliott about her efforts to create calming, joy-filled spaces through wallpaper design.
