Get to know Ms. Bowers

Dallas, Texas designer Shannon Bowers' home shows how one can take a once dark Georgian House and turn it into a pale "European Dream", bathed in sunlight.
Shannon is the daughter of Houston designer Pamela Pierce, so she comes by her passion for decorating naturally. I can definitely see Pierce's influence in her daughters work . . . can you?

Bowers decorates with practicality in mind . . . as a mother with two young children, she will tell you her home is filled with activity. So she wanted it to be as serene as possible, note the lack of pattern.


Like the homes she decorates for clients, her own home reflects her personal sense of style while allowing everyone to feel at ease . . . Beautiful, warm and comfortable. I love her style, how about you?

  3. I love her accessory pieces throughout these rooms. These are just a bit too light for my personal taste, but like with other styles that aren't to my personal taste, I can still appreciate them.

  6. I visited my sister in law's house yesterday and it's beautiful. Lots of dark, rich colors on the wall and big, heavy, dark wood furniture and sumptuous window treatments. This morning I was looking around my house, my house with pure white walls and white lace curtains and wondered why I don't do more with color. The I see you describe the serenity of Bowers choice of decor and I realized why. I love serenity and my house makes me feel that way. Thanks for that insight into myself :-)

  11. Bowing my knee to HRH Bowers...tipping my hat, saluting, hi-fiving ... and anything else you could think of that would let you know that I adore the palette and the sense and sensibility of new juxtaposed with old!

    You're rockin'out, as usual!

  12. I enjoyed these photos. I keep a copy of the second one with the 5 plaques on the barn wood...I would love to find something like them or even make them myself one of these days. Comfortable and serene indeed!

  13. The light in those rooms is enviable...I wish I could get that. The rooms are beautiful..there is color but it is so subtle. Just gorgeous.

  15. Shannon Bowers' previous home was profiled several years ago in a design magazine (can't remember which one). As beautiful as her current home is, her previous home truly rocked my world. She had a silk covered armless sofa/settee in her living room that I will probably always dream about.

    I do really like this current home, but would consider myself in heaven if I lived in her previous home. Jenny C.

  18. Love it all. I didn't know that Shannon was Pamela's daughter - that explains a few things. What a beautiful room for a baby. Soothing.
    Cheers!

  21. Mmmmmm, I do LOVE her decorating style but I'm afraid my hubby and the dog would have to go with so many light colours. :) -Brenda-
