HOME OF KELLY MCFARLAND
2002 Caspian Lane in Cascades at Timarron, Colleyville
When Kelly McFarland and her decorator set out to furnish and embellish her new home, this mother of twins wanted a feminine home fit for a princess. Crystal chandeliers, soft colors, lavish draperies and bedding, and carefully chosen art have turned this home into a habitat fit for modern royalty. Much of the vision for this home comes from decorator Susan Gage of Susan Gage Designs and her partner, Lori Palmer, who have not only worked with Kelly to create her home but have decorated it for the holidays.
The entry and formal living room of the McFarland home has become a winter wonderland of white, champagne, and platinum with crystal accents, starting with the delicate Schonbek crystal chandelier in the foyer. A tall pencil tree embellished with crystal balls, bouquets, jeweled flowers and elaborate ribbons stands by the staircase. Garlands of pearls and crystals adorn the tree, mantle, and stair railing. White mink stockings hang ready for Santa. In the adjoining dining room, the dining table is set with pavé crystal deer, white flowers, candlesticks and a white mink runner.
The heart of this home, the family room and kitchen area, are highlighted in accents of aqua—aqua glass art high above a doorway and a set of abstract paintings by artist Blakely Bering. Complementing this scheme, a massive 14-foot tree is clad in tones of aqua, brass, pewter and mercury and includes various angel wings, vintage and transitional ornaments and bouquets of icy branches, adorned ribbons and amaryllis.
Upstairs in the domain of the 7 year-old twins, their spaces reflect their personalities and interests. A wall-sized mural highlights the purple and pink little girl’s room. Down the hall, her twin brother’s room is fit for a Super Hero, as masculine and strongly colored as his sister’s is soft and feminine.
Finally, the backyard provides the perfect setting for royal entertaining. Two covered structures shelter a seating area on one side of the pool and an outdoor kitchen on the other. Kelly is unusual for the CWC tour as this is the second home she has put on the tour! CWC is honored to have her.
