Dining Room Designed by Paul Draper

Paul Draper is an interior designer who has collaborated with many of the great architects like Frank Welch, Max Levy, Overland Partners, and James Langford. His work on modern homes, Texas modern homes, and classic homes includes fabricating furniture, curating art, designing rooms and designing fixtures and finishes. His residential work can be found in homes in Highland Park, University Park, Lakewood, Preston Hollow, White Rock Lake, Turtle Creek, Bluffview and downtown.

Paul Draper makes a very determined effort to integrate the interior design within the style of the architecture, and the style of the client and architect, rather than imposing a signature style. Paul is a good example of why the best projects are the result of the interior designer working closely with the architect from early on in an architecture project.

Bluffview Modern Home

For this modern Bluffview home Paul Draper traveled with the client to New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Paris, Brussels and Antwerp to select artwork and furniture.

The Living room has great scale with a band of modern windows, floor-to-ceiling windows, and a very large 18th century French limestone fireplace surround. In this room interior designer Paul Draper designed the coffee table made of bronze and rosewood and placed in front of the vertical panel of windows overlooking the creek and gardens. The living room floor continues the pattern of Indiana limestone found throughout the first floor.
