I have been bursting at the seams to tell you about a project I’ve been working on for several weeks and today is finally the day! As y’all probably know by now, I (and I’m sure many of you) have quite the thirst for luxury – whether that’s a gorgeous designer handbag, staying at a five-star hotel in Paris, or a sleek new car. I especially love luxury living (have you seen my Pinterest?). So when Lincoln Motor Company asked me (and my incredible photographer!) to check out their Black Label concept home in Dallas, it was an easy sell.
If you are unfamiliar, Black Label is Lincoln’s most elevated ownership experience, incorporating sought-after materials and sleek design themes into their cars. The home was inspired by Lincoln’s Black Label collection of luxury vehicles, focusing on four major design themes: Oasis, Modern Heritage, Indulgence and Center Stage. In the Dallas home, there was a bedroom and a living space for each designated theme. I had a chance to chat with lead designer, Janet Seymore, and the Lincoln team to discuss the core elements of each theme, how they influenced each space, and how these designs are incorporated into their Black Label vehicles. Scroll on down to see all of the beautiful spaces and learn more about how to create an environment that evokes a feeling, à la Lincoln Black Label!
This was my favorite space, far and away. The use of soft, creamy neutrals in the Oasis themed rooms lent a relaxing feel to the somewhat modern furniture (I’m gonna need those Acapulco style chairs). It felt very comfortable and home-y, while maintaining an elegant, elevated vibe. It’s certainly how I want my own style to be – I love incorporating beautiful neutral pieces for a balanced, chic look!
I also really appreciated the use of different fabrics and textures throughout each space. If you look closely, you can see that the trim on both the palm-print pillows and the headboard on the bed are made of Alcantara. This super soft suede-like material is the same luxe fabric used on the headliner of each Black Label car, creating a calming, peaceful environment.
The Lincoln Black Label Modern Heritage theme is for those who crave a refined, modern aesthetic. Clean lines and a high contrast color scheme lend a European taste to this enchanting space, don’t you think? This color scheme is definitely going to be a running trend while I’m packing for Europe next month. Lots of black and white, with just a hint of color here and there – items that I’ll wear and re-wear time and again, while incorporating pops of color and prints for a re-imagined look.
Also, don’t you just adore all the photography featured in this space? It definitely speaks to old Hollywood glamour and they each add a bit of drama and intrigue to the rooms. All of the photographs are by Art Streiber. So incredible!
Because what’s luxury without a little Indulgence? This theme is a celebration of the allure of chocolate. Since many people spend a lot of time in their cars and on the road, comfort is key in your choice of vehicle. But decadence? That’s an added bonus. Desirably dressed in rich brown leather and delicious details, the Lincoln Black Label cars’ warm tones translate to supple, cozy spaces that encourage you to sit back, relax and enjoy the ride.
Inspired by the theatre world and fashion district, the Center Stage theme evokes excitement and intrigue. Jet-black leather paired with pops of red make this a sexy, bold design choice for those with a taste for the dramatic. Kinda makes me want to throw on a little black dress and a pair of bright red pumps – love a daring look for a night out on the town!
I hope you enjoyed getting a look at the inspiration behind the Lincoln Black Label collection as much as I did! Be sure to head over to Lincoln’s website for more information on this opulent collection and to learn more about the brand.
