2019 Showcase Home | Outdoor Living: Designers: Danny Russo and Trish Beaudet

Fort Worth Magazine’s 2019 Showcase Home has a decidedly modern farmhouse feel — from the exterior stucco made to look like old siding to the clerestory windows and rich pecky cypress in the living room fireplace wall and white oak floors that tie the whole home together. Even off in the distance, the new TEXRail commuter train whizzes by Colleyville — throwing off the sensation, for just a moment, that this is a European country home.

The home — 5,173 square feet, five bedrooms, 5 1/2 baths, at 208 Winnie Drive in Colleyville’s luxury Oakleigh development — was built by John Webb of Heritage Homes and listed for sale at $1.89 million by Jeannie Anderson of The Jeannie Anderson Group, Keller Williams Realty. As in the magazine’s long-running series of annual Dream Homes, we’ve collaborated with some of the region’s finest luxury vendors in our inaugural Showcase Home.

Outdoor living: Designers: Danny Russo and Trish Beaudet

Bringing comfort and sophistication of an indoor space to a back patio is no easy feat. Yet, designers Danny Russo and Trish Beaudet managed a solid wink to an indoor space when designing the outdoor living area. Far more casual than the house’s indoor décor, there remain sophisticated flares, such as the end tables, lamps and a small dresser tucked in a corner. Yet, their use of natural wood throughout, including as placemats and accents, is a perfect match with the home’s modern farmhouse feel. “The design process was a collaboration,” Russo says. “We managed to find the perfect elements to accentuate the casual, open space the builder created.”
