HOME OF DAVID & TERI LARSEN
7013 Westmont Drive in Westmont of Colleyville
When Teri Larsen decorates for Christmas, everything sparkles—and David Larsen claims he sparkles too as the glitter seems to be everywhere and often rubs off on HIM. As the Larsens love to entertain family and friends, the holidays provide a palette to entertain their guests. A collection of wreaths has been placed in various places on the front of the house. The graceful curving staircase and upstairs railing are wrapped with garlands and each of the three fireplace mantles throughout the home is lavishly decorated to coordinate with the rest of the room. Teri puts up five trees, each distinctive and special. A large traditional tree in tones of red and gold fills a corner of the two story living room. The same area is home to a pencil tree in rust, copper and gold, a tribute to nature. The family room is graced by a blue and silver tree (no, it is not a Cowboy tree but reflects Teri’s love of the colors). An upside down tree hangs over the octagonal kitchen island in the middle of the kitchen.
A very special angel tree upstairs was created by Dana Zents, a dear friend of Teri’s, for her mother, Glenna White, recently deceased. The angel tree is decorated with lace, crystal, angel wings and a halo. Teri has given the tree a place of honor to honor her friend’s mother.
A teenaged girl’s dream accessed down a private hallway and up a few stairs, the upstairs bedroom of the Teri’s daughter Carley is a treat of teal, black and white. Many of this young lady’s treasures displayed on narrow shelves on one wall glitter as well. And Teri has created a special teenage tribute tree to match the colors in the room for her daughter to reflect the joys of her high school years.
But there is much to see in the Larsen home in addition to Christmas. David, a radiologist by profession, avidly collects art with a special eye for young artists in the early stages of their careers. Over 40 paintings hang throughout the home and reflect his interest in landscapes, wild-lifes and portraits. He has spent over 20 years patronizing art galleries and art shows to amass his collection. If he ever tires of medicine, he could have a career in the field or art.
