A Federalist-Style Home Lightens Up

Landscape designer Cedar Baldridge is anything but traditional. Raised in Mexico, she grew up around cacti and cowboys and lots of color. So when she purchased a traditional Federalist-style home in Houston, Texas, she knew she had some work to do. With the help of Dillon Kyle Architects, she knocked down walls in her living room, kitchen and laundry to create an airy, bright feel — and that was before the paintbrush even hit the walls. Now that her colorful casita is slathered in turquoise, with splashes of canary yellow and hot pink, Baldridge can kick back and be herself.
