HGTV Star Donna Moss collaborates on a kitchen with the most expensive perfume designer in the world to create a kitchen valued at more than one half million US dollars! Yes, that’s over $650,000 British pounds!

Just in case you are one of the three people in America who aren’t familiar with HGTV show host, Donna Moss, from her very own show, Donna Decorates Dallas, please allow me to introduce you to the “Queen of Bling”!

Donna brings glamorous, lush decor into every space she decorates. A former finalist on HGTV’s “Design Star,” she was also a guest judge on HGTV’s “White Room Challenge”. With over 25 years of design experience, Donna owns and operates her own interior design firm based in Dallas, Texas with her daughters Ashley & Tiffany. Even though they are Dallas based, the Moss family creates beautiful projects everywhere!

Team Moss focuses on rich colors and & detailed embellishments that sparkle and shine, and she knows how to bling it on!!! With numerous awards achieved and her work featured in the home decor photography book “Beautiful Bedrooms & Bath,” Donna proves that anything is possible in design. This is especially evident in the 2017 Dallas Decorators Showhouse presented by Traditional Home and hosted by Donna.

Kitchen

Because kitchens take center stage in today’s homes, Donna Moss, the host and co-builder of Dallas Decorators Showhouse, was chosen to make this room a masterpiece in collaboration with British cabinetry designer and manufacturer, Clive Christian of London.

Even though cookies, coffee, and takeout are the only thing on this Queen’s menu, Donna was inspired to create a kitchen layout that would make this home welcoming and functional.

Her design includes both the main kitchen—with a spacious 12-foot backlit agate island—and an all-white prep kitchen with Lisa Jarvis hardware.

“You can work in one space and play in the other,” says Donna. “I was sparked by my love of timeless design with a touch of glamorous Old Hollywood, Art Deco style plus Jenn-Air’s black interior fridge sealed the deal with the burled walnut inlay and dark finish.”

“I wanted to create a fabulous melting pot of design with a tasteful, modern mix of sleek, shiny surfaces paired with the classic luxury of our custom Clive Christian cabinets.” For her palette, Donna gave a nod to the showhouse charity, the Alzheimer’s Association, and its official color, purple. “Fortunately for me, one of our sponsors, Cosentino, has a line of semiprecious stone slabs in amethyst,” says Donna, who used the slab as a backlit feature on the front of the island. Custom chandeliers frame an Art Deco-style mantelpiece over the Jenn-Air cooktop.

The hallway Clive Christian butler’s pantry with reeded glass doors isn’t too shabby either, complete with Dom Perignon and French macaroons (straight from Trader Joe’s of Southlake) waiting for the lucky new homeowner of this nearly half million dollar kitchen complete with a hand faux finished purple ceiling and glitzy gold Crossville Tile.

Oh! And we haven’t even made it to the wine room completely stocked with Moet Hennessy USA thanks to Big Creek Spirits & Wine of Southlake, Texas. If your wine room needs stocking and staging like this, Randy, the owner of Big Creek, is the man for the job!” Sorry, the photographs with the glitz, glass, and reflections don’t do this room justice. Subscribe to Traditional Home magazine and watch for their professional photos. The beautiful handmade crystallized Maya Romanoff paper doesn’t even show up here 🙁

As if that wasn’t enough designing for the host of the Dallas Decorators Showhouse, Donna also designed the outdoor kitchen, and Kimberly Schlegel Whitman, author, public speaker, and lifestyle maven, partnered with her to design the tablescape. “I love everything monogrammed,” Kimberly says. “I incorporated monogrammed dinnerware and fringed linens based on the iridescent tiles around the pool—blues, silver, and pops of green.” And when she says she loves monograms, she’s not lying. Monograms for the Home: The Art of Making Your Mark is the seventh book that Kimberly has written, with an eighth due to be published in 2018.

“Exterior spaces now hold their own against their interior cousins,” says Krissa Rossbund, Senior Style Editor of Traditional Home magazine. “Case in point: Donna Moss’ chic loggia space that cooks up refined preparation stations and a custom dining table suited for a memorable meal.”

“It reflects a sexy, modern Texas lifestyle that is quite different from what we typically see in indoor formal kitchen and dining areas,” Donna says. This woman, whose larger-than-life personality brought spirit to television on Donna Decorates Dallas, weaves that same glamour and sass into the spaces she designs. In the loggia, she poised the contemporary table for a beautiful tablescape.

“THE MORE YOU ENTERTAIN, THE EASIER IT BECOMES,” says Kimberly.
