By Lana Wynn |

The designer cast for Dwell with Dignity’s annual fundraiser, Thrift Studio, has been announced, and it’s a good one. From April 5 to May 4, Dwell With Dignity’s 30-day pop-up will feature gorgeous, shoppable vignettes by the designers listed below, along with works from 34 talented artists.

Judy Aldridge

The owner and creator of Atlantis Home is known for her vibrant, Boho-inspired style. See her work showcased on her design blog, Instagram, and her online shop, where customers can purchase hand-woven textiles and sterling silver jewelry.

Teaming up with: Genesis Thrift Store


Brant McFarlain

The owner of R Brant Design offers a clean, elegant aesthetic for high-end residential projects (like this Stoneleigh residence featured in a 2017 issue of D Home), corporate clientele, and national hospitality chains.


Peters Cates Design

Bill Cates and Russ Peters’ Oak Cliff home was featured in our most recent holiday issue.

Peters and Cates specialize in creating tailor-made spaces for clients, whether its a charming Oak Cliff bungalow or a prestigious Preston Hollow estate.

Alice Cottrell and Russell Brightwell

The TCU graduate got her start designing hotel interiors in New York City, and launched her eponymous firm in Dallas 30 years ago. Brightwell got his start in advertising (he spent 30 years as a creative executive in London, New York, and Houston), but decided to move to Dallas in 2017 to share his passion for collecting. Shoppers can make appointments to visit his Fair Park loft to discover a treasure trove of  out-of-production, contemporary design objects, and vintage ceramics, as well as rare fashion, art, and design books.

Maestri Studio

Maestri’s boutique design firm in Exposition Park (which expanded to encompass an art gallery last summer) is known for its scrupulous detail in full-service architecture and interior design.

Teaming up with: Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams

Pulp Design Studios

Pulp Design Studios’ work on a Highland Park home was featured in our Jan/Feb 2016 issue.

The interior design firm, founded by Beth Dotolo and Carolina Gentry, is known for its personalization and “Splendid Living” approach, which ensures livability in addition to beauty.

Harbinger Designs

Owned by Dallas-based decorator Alison Gross Dale, Harbinger Designs creates custom, timeless furniture and sources unique finds for clients.

Our homes say so much about us—whether we’re serious or playful, over-the-top or minimalistic—and their contents speak to our interests and idiosyncrasies. The same is true for those whose livelihoods are made making homes for others. We visited the eclectic and cozy Highland Park bungalow of one of our 2022 Best Designers and found it equally inspiring and revealing.
