Houzz is the new way to design your home.
Melissa Smith Art for Houzz Call
My own original artwork and DIY crafts adorn the walls and accent the surfaces of our 2100 square foot home in Garland, TX where my husband Nathaniel and I and our two Chihuahua mix rescues live. Our home was built in 1996 in the golf course community of Firewheel Estates where traditional ornate style abounds, so we aimed for the opposite in creating a young, fun, rustic modern eclectic space that is dog friendly and that makes us smile. I love creating paintings and mirrors, antique shopping and upcycling existing pieces in which to decorate our home and we pride ourselves in reducing, reusing, and recycling to make a big design impact while keeping costs low.
