Crafted by ForrestPerkins, Aster’s interior design embodies the quiet sophistication and elegance of the Turtle Creek neighborhood, which borders Uptown Dallas. The spaces are characterized by custom art installations, unique focal points, and a bit of the unexpected. The interiors are distinctively curated to be memorable yet approachable, refined yet comfortable. Warm and neutral materials, comfortable and functional seating, and purposeful views of green spaces allow residents to feel as if they are in a harmonious urban retreat.
The grandeur of the residential lobby reflects the elegance of the Turtle Creek neighborhood. With inspiration from men’s suiting, the double-height lobby walls feature reveal details in a subtle plaid. Colorful Texas succulents fill green walls behind the concierge desk, and striking black and white marble floors lead the eye to a custom installation of plaster Aster flowers, the building’s namesake Texas wildflower. Just off the lobby, the conservatory is a quiet lounge featuring a custom chandelier and cozy fireplace with views of the corner park just outside. In the library, tucked beyond the conservatory, mailboxes blend seamlessly with the custom metal and glass shelving, striking wallcovering, and accessories inspired by Dallas and beyond.
The artwork program takes cues from a well-traveled resident of the Turtle Creek neighborhood, with nods to both the local and remote. The signature dusty pink accent color in the fabrics and branding is a hint to Mary Kay, who launched her cosmetics brand in Dallas. The property takes southern hospitality seriously, displaying fresh flowers, iced tea, and lemonade daily.
The 4th-floor clubroom opens to a lush courtyard and pool deck with spaces to lounge, work, dine, exercise, and relax. An operable glass wall adjacent to the bar encourages indoor-outdoor connections to the courtyard and pool deck, where water cascades into the infinity edge pool from an overhead shade structure. The 17th-floor sky lounge features dramatic views of downtown Dallas, with interior and exterior spaces to host a dinner party, work from home, or practice your golf game.
