A New Contemporary Home for Newlyweds

Royce Alsop and Linda Shore recently said “I do” to each other and to a new house which the Cantoni Dallas design team brought to life with a beautiful monochromatic design.

Finding love again after losing their spouses also meant finding a new place in Dallas to call home for newlyweds Royce Alsop and Linda Shore. “We moved into the house in April and just got married in St. Thomas this September,” said Royce. “It was a new space that we created together.”


Initially the couple came into Cantoni to browse for dining chairs and that’s when they connected with our designers. “They told us their story and how they were moving in together and starting a new life with one another. They are incredible people and we wanted to help design something beautiful for them,” said the design team.


They were both still in the process of selling their previous homes and were planning to mix old pieces with a few new ones. That was until Linda ended up selling all her furniture with her home, about half way through the project.


“This presented an exciting challenge to find the perfect pieces to complement the ones we’d already selected,” said the design team. The couple wanted a transitional, monochromatic look with a contemporary twist. “We like clean lines with warmth in them,” revealed Linda.


Royce and Linda fell in love with our exclusive M Place Collection by Malerba, which is handcrafted in Italy. Our designers worked with the couple to incorporate pieces from the collection throughout the home. “They tied it all together,” noted Royce. “The design team’s input was invaluable, the rugs, artwork and lamps selected were perfect, plus they completely redid the entry hall.”


In fact, the foyer was one of  our designers’ favorite spaces too. “We wanted to design a fresh and unique space to welcome guests into their home,” they said. “We paired Malerba’s gorgeous Dress Code Collection Table Lamp, which is inlaid with horn, with our McCartney Chair, a funky hair on hide rug and a wall-mounted console, to create an eclectic and inviting atmosphere.”


“The whole place feels great,” said Royce. “We’re really happy,” added Linda. “It’s a now a comfortable place where we can relax and the Cantoni design team made it fun.” Our team was thrilled with the outcome as well. “We created a space that is visually appealing, warm and welcoming,” explained the design team. “It was so special to be a part of Royce and Linda’s beautiful journey. We know they’ll make many new and wonderful memories in this new house that is now their home.”
