Designer Spotlight: Cathy Kincaid

“Do nothing from selfish ambition or conceit, but in humility count others more significant than yourselves”
‭‭Philippians‬ ‭2:3‬ ‭

Welcome back to our Designer Spotlight series!  You may remember my posts on Charles Faudree, Betty Lou Phillips, and Tobi Fairley…and today we will take a look at Dallas based interior designer, Cathy Kincaid.  Her style has always been of great interest to me.  I have studied her design in every shelter magazine that has published her work over many years.  Her designs are classic but fresh.  Her design philosophy resonates with me, “I love the value of the mix.  It is the one aspect of design that I adhere to -the old with the new, the ornate with the simple, the refined with the rustic.” I hope you enjoy touring some of her beautiful rooms!

A “wow” floating stairway fronts a two-story glass wall in this Dallas home!

A blue and white entrance into a Dallas high-rise!

This glamorous penthouse was featured in Veranda last year!  Rich colors abound in the space with the antique chinoiserie panels.  Love the whimsical tole light fixtures and the formal French limestone floors!  The owners must be well traveled!

A soft shade of blue for the walls and a wonderful beamed ceiling mix with lovely furnishings for a comfortable space!

A formal yet inviting room!  A grand piano always catches my eye!

A sunny spot with a cheerful red chair and floral window treatments!

Huge arched windows and fanciful treillage add detail to a sunroom that is used for entertaining…what a gorgeous space to welcome guests!

A great conversation area with its mix of pattern and texture!

Wicker seating and a vintage coffee table turn the enclosed porch into a welcoming spot for a morning cup of coffee!

The large patterned fabric covering the chairs adds drama to this dining room!

I always love the addition of blue and white to a room!

Can you imagine breakfast on this porch?

A light-filled dining spot in a sunroom!

This room is full of rustic ambiance!

A dining space that is casual, but so inviting!

A country French kitchen with warm Provençal colors!

Love this kitchen with an open space to a family (or keeping) room!

Any home chef would love this kitchen!

I just love a room with walls and windows covered in the same fabric.  The white bedding offers a break from the pattern!

A blue and white guest room with canopied beds is perfect!

I have noticed that the designer uses canopies often.  This master is traditional and classic!

This beautiful room was in the 2015 Kips Bay Decorator Show House!

Closer view of the beautiful linens and the bed tray!

A view of the cozy seating in the above bedroom!

A guest room with a neutral palette…love the beds!

A gorgeous mix of patterns!

Soft shades of blue and white make a serene space for relaxing!

It would be next to impossible for me to pick a favorite…how about you?  Thank you all for reading and for your comments!

    Pam, several of these photos just stop me in my tracks! Cathy Kincaid…I’m going to remember that name.

    Pinning. Thank you so much for sharing at Thoughts of Home on Thursday. :)

    I have definite favorites. The blue and white twin beds bedroom, the trilliaged sunroom, and the gorgeous penthouse featured by Veranda. Can you tell I love color, especially blue and white? Thank you for showing these rooms that give us ideas in how to love on our homes.

  3. Beautiful portfolio of hers, Pam. It would be easy for me to choose my favorites – the sunroom with the exposed brick, and that leading photo of the stairway, also with exposed brick. Lovely.

  4. This blog post was like a mini-vacation for me! I loved it all!

    I’ve always said, that if I had the means and the patience, I would change my rooms out every couple of years. I just love the variety. Like you I love blue and whites, but of late, I personally LOVE reds.

    A lot of the rooms featured reminded me of decorating I have seen in Newport mansions.

    Thanks so much for sharing!

    Ditto My Kentucky Living…My love of this style is especially the latticed porch room with the floral comfortable chairs..

    Love your posts and thoughtful Scripture passages. My Aunt lived in Selma, Ala.

Quiero destacar la sensación de relax que inspiran cada una de las habitaciones por su luminosidad, buena combinación de colores y belleza de los materiales empleados. Estos estilos me encantan…Me gusta mucho la decoración del hogar, creo que contribuye principalmente a la armonía de los miembros de la familia.

    Hi Pam, thank you for this magnificent display of good taste. I want to emphasize the feeling of relaxation that inspire each room by its brightness, good combination of colors and beauty of the materials used. These styles love me … I love home decor, I think mainly contributes to the harmony of the family members.

    Most of these rooms are obviously high end homes which can sometimes look extremely “done by a decorator”. These are both beautiful and very livable. I love some of the linens on the beds. Thanks for the enjoyable posting.

    Beautiful style Pam. Those sunrooms made my heart skip a beat. I had not heard of her before. Thanks for sharing with SYC.

We love your comments!
