DTX Comforts of Home 2012

With the holidays upon us, our thoughts turn to transforming our house into a sanctuary suitable for entertaining. Plus, now that cooler temperatures are keeping us inside, we long to create a cozy, comfortable space we can settle into.

This month, our special editorial series looks at ways to better enjoy the place we call home. We talk to experts who share simple tricks for sprucing up our digs and peek inside the favorite rooms of Dallas notables. Plus we shop for on-trend and covetable furniture and home accessories, uncover top home and design shops, and explore public spaces that remind us of the comforts of home.
