My brother and his wife enlisted interior designer Sarah Catherine Garvin to finish their dining room of their newly built Dilworth home. Sarah Catherine, owner of her namesake boutique design firm Sarah Catherine Collective, is well-known for her ability to bring a room to life with the perfect combination of modern texture, rich finishes, and a touch of glam. The results are simply stunning and somehow Sarah Catherine is able to create a space of luxury yet comfortable enough for this young family to enjoy.

To celebrate the completion of the room, Sarah Catherine invited us to gather for a holiday dinner party with Chef Hector Gonzalez. It was a great way to experience the new space with family and friends.
