Peace Design was honored to be part of a one-of-a-kind project creating a spectacular home on an expansive south Texas ranch. And, we are now thrilled to have it featured in DEPARTURES Home + Design Spring 2021 magazine. The landscape of Hill Country, with its uniquely understated kind of grandeur, created a serene setting. The international lifestyle of the homeowner, Spanish and African influences, and the rich Texas history provided unparalleled inspiration. But, it was the natural elements of the property such as limestone, clay, cypress, oak, cedar, and walnut that brought the design to life. Most notably, paneling hewed from solid gunstock walnut, ancient stone from Italy and Egypt and thousand-year-old sinker cypress, used in the photo here of the library.

We spent years getting all of the details right and worked closely with the owner and architect to use materials collected from around the world. The result is a spectacular Texas ranch that feels as if it has always been there and will belong there for generations to come.
