Dixie Chic in Metropolitan Home

I absolutely love this loft - it's a converted candy factory in San Antonio and is owned by Emily Robison from the Dixie Chicks.

Emily hired architects Jim Poteet and Patrick Ousey and interior designer Joel Mozersky to work on the space which is now a four-bedroom, three-bath spread.

Ousey added a subtle gray-and-ocher antique Oushak rug to anchor the living space; Joel Mozersky introduced a bold brown and white pattern—in the dining room chairs, in the Amadi rugs in the seating area next to the kitchen and in the master bedroom—to define a visual corridor along the ceiling-high windows that are draped in Ultrasuede. “Emily wanted the space to be unpredictable (no Saarinen tables, she specified) but homey,” says Mozersky. The rugs did the trick and also tempered the powerful presence of the steel-framed windows that overlook them.

While the east-facing bedroom is all about light, the tile-lined bath is windowless. The room depends on ambient reflections of light bouncing off the glass shower doors and the lustrous handmade floor and wall tiles to evoke a comforting evanescence. Once again, though, the columns were not to be denied. One became a canopy that crowns the shower stall; the other is a totem to bathing, with the Agape tub at its base and a chandelier floating above.
