Home Bunch - Interior Design Ideas


How are you doing today? As a mother of three, I am well aware of all the worries in the world but I want this to be a place where we all can get away from all of this stress, even if it’s only for a few minutes (or hours, if you choose to, because you certainly can find plenty of house tours on Home Bunch’s archives). This is our corner of the world where we won’t be thinking about the problems and we will be in charge of our emotions, leaving all of the worries and fears behind. We, you and I, are creating a moment for only good and positive vibes and thoughts.

I am happy to be featuring @traciconnellinteriors (make sure to follow her! 🙂 ) on our “Beautiful Homes of Instagram” series today because this is a home of a very special client. Keep reading to know more details below:

“Perfectly embedded on an acre of land overlooking a pond, in the heart of Willow Bend of Plano, this dated, 1990’s traditional home got more than a complete facelift. The wife is a “farmer’s daughter” and could have never imagined having a home like this to call her own one day. Having two adopted sons from Russia, the client’s story of their life is intricately woven into a special blend and our goal was to incorporate that into each part of their home. After an extensive renovation, we then took on the task of furnishing this home to meet the desires and needs of the family. Finding a 15’ dining table was a tall task… especially for a family of four. Using a local craftsman, the most gorgeous white oak table was created to host everyone in the neighborhood!”

In the foyer, the designer created a vignette that serves a purpose not only for the eye but functionally as well.

Most of the furniture and decor are available through the designer (to the trade only) but whenever possible, I will be selecting similar options for your convenience.

Beautiful & Practical

The fabrics may be lighter in this space but they are definitely kid-proof! Throughout the home, each family member was thought of. The fabrics and finishes had to withstand small boys, who were extremely active. The use of outdoor fabrics and beautiful scratch proof finishes were incorporated in every space –bring on the hotwheels for the little men in the house.

We wanted to incorporate light and airy with the presence of a natural look to this kitchen. White Oak can be seen throughout the space with punches of black to contrast.

Dining Room

The client entertains a lot so the need to sit a large amount of people was key. We blew out the wall dividing the kitchen and dining room to open up the space. A custom 14’ long table was made so it would fit all their entertaining needs and incorporate the kitchen design style into this space.

Fresh Air

In order to bring nature indoors, Traci decided to demo the exterior wall to the patio to add a large folding door and blew out the wall dividing the formal dining room and breakfast room so there would be a clear sight through to the outdoors.


What a relaxing space to enjoy a cup of coffee and enjoy the views of the lake! We repurposed their large wooden coffee table and added comfortable yet stylish pieces around for them to unwind in. A hanging chair was added in the corner for the kiddos to also have a space to relax.

Sofas: Summers Classics.

Hanging Chair: here – similar option here.

Coffee Table: Existing coffee table of clients – similar here.


What a beautiful view!

Family Room

A cozy room near the back of the house for the family to gather and spend time together. This room has two focal points, the fireplace and the projection screen that comes from the ceiling near the back doors. This meant the furniture layout had to be able to function for both purposes, so we included a sectional and swivel chairs for the multi-function purpose. We wanted to bring more textures with absence of color into this space to create that comfortable, cozy feeling. Durable fabrics were a must in this room since this is the main hub for the family to gather.

Coffee Table: Bernhardt – Others: here & here.

Swivel Chairs: Gabby Home.

Side Table: Arteriors.

The clients told a lot of stories about their past and children. Traci realized that the stories were actually treasures as she incorporated their memories and symbols in every room. As one example, she brought these memories to life in a custom artwork collage above the family room mantel. From a tractor representing the grandfather, to the Russian alphabet portraying the roots of their adopted sons and some Cambodian script, there were meanings behind each piece. The word “family” in Cambodian script and in Russian as well as a tree as it represents enduring strength. The circles represent infinity and being whole and complete. The feathers are a symbol of flight and freedom. The triangles were tied to the number three and true wisdom. The tribal images represent their ties to the past and the numbers are important in religion, mythology and fairy tales and represent luck.

Fireplace: Large Tile by Daltile with White Oak Mantel – similar here & here.

Benches: Bungalow 5 with custom fabric.

Rug: Dash and Albert.


For the “big man” in the house, Traci designed a swanky wet bar which is actually hidden in the paneling in the family room…. you would never know there was a kegerator waiting to be tapped. This house is full of little details such as these. Cabinets are in Dark Night SW 6237 by Sherwin Williams.
