Dallas Arboretum DeGolyer House

Set in the center of the Dallas Arboretum’s lush landscape, the DeGolyer House is a large Spanish Colonial Revival home designed by California Architects Denman Scott and Burton Schutt. Originally completed in 1939, it has undergone a readaptation and is now open for tours and serves as a rental property for corporate events and weddings. The Emily Summers Design Associates design team conducted extensive research on the house and decoration styles of the period and was charged with preserving as much of the original interior and as possible, while at the same time ensuring its functionality for modern use. Emily Summers Design Associates repurposed many original furnishings, sourced additional period-appropriate pieces, improved the quality of lighting, and created a safe and warm environment for the home’s current use.
