Something Old, Something New

It takes a remarkable talent to effortlessly blend historical pieces and modern furnishings into a seamless expression of tasteful design.  But gallerist and interior designer Melissa Enriquez has a knack for curating a delightful mix of vintage elements and thoroughly modern essentials, whether it's a dynamic work of original art or the ideal dining-room table and chairs at her wonderful Gallerie Noir.  The vibe is "historical modern" with surprises at every turn.  Thanks to a sophisticated yet limited color palette, each vignette is cohesive and meticulously presented.  Paintings, photographs, sculpture and other art installations rotate frequently to create miniature exhibits within the large airy space on Dragon Street in the Dallas Design District.  Just prepare yourself in advance because browsing here almost always leads to buying.  --Steven Lindsay
