How Home Designer Help Clients Transition From Larger Homes Into a Del Webb Texas Community Home
Being a lover of the older generation by default my team of home designers and I (Dee Frazier) love helping retirees transition their belongings into new Del Webb Texas retirement communities. This particular client, Darlene, and her daughter, Denise is particularly special to us. Can you believe that she did NOT see the full interior design process until her moving day from Sequin, Washington!? This was a reveal I wish we had filmed.
From taking a trip down memory lane to discovering new purchases that fit each room and the client’s lifestyle is imperative. With the recent losses of two of our parents here lately, it’s most evident how much we need good people to care for the aging population. Each time we go into a Del Webb Texas community, it’s so nice to see people enjoying the interior design and home decor process. Darlene’s situation was almost the opposite of our typical Del Webb interior design process.
Most of our clients love to entertain and we thoroughly enjoy decorating rooms to help them do just that – ENTERTAIN & LIVE LIFE TO THE FULLEST! Let’s go inside Darlene’s Del Web Texas Community Home designed by me and my junior designer Sam Synder who’s Austin TX based.

This was written in D’KOR HOME, “Projects that involve helping retirees downsize and prepare to do lots of entertaining in retirement Del Webb communities are a favorite of Dallas, Texas interior designer Dee Frazier, and her junior designer, Sam worked on this project together. Not knowing what to keep and how to transition beloved keepsakes into smaller spaces can be frustrating.”
“Instead of moving into a home that wasn’t exactly her, Darlene went to Houzz and searched for an “interior designer in Dallas TX”. While living near Putrid Sound with a beautiful view of Mount Rainer near Sequim, Washington, she didn’t have a clue who to trust to completely remodel her house to her taste and her liking. Dee Frazier Interiors immediately stood out as a group of realistic interior designers. After using Dee and her Dallas Interior Design Firm to completely redesign her Del Webb home, Darlene’s daughter Denise hired Dee and her design team to do completely redesign her Dallas condo.”
The Del Webb Eat-In Kitchen Dining Room with Gallery Wall & My Dining Room Chair Placement Tips
One thing that I find in small spaces is that people rarely angle the chairs where they pull out in the corners. It’s a huge space-saving technique that we use in dining room designs for both aesthetics and function. It works especially well in restaurant layouts and keeps people from feeling trapped. Thnk about it. If these chairs were placed in the ordinary pattern, you’d walk into the room and be looking at the back of the chairs instead of the fresh flower table centerpiece.
Make your day even better – REANGLE YOUR CHAIRS!

How This Del Webb Home Was Transformed From Dark & Airy To Light And Refreshing
Updating and repurposing of treasured heirlooms and other furnishings is a common theme in the Dee Frazier Interiors design process. Typically, with most Del Webb homes, we start by identifying family heirlooms and keepsakes. Where a lot of interior designers want to sell homeowner’s new furniture or not work with them at all. Our interior design firm is quite different in that sense.
With the exception of Mrs. Zeller’s Del Webb home, we started from scratch! Mrs. Zeller only wanted to keep her Waterford chandelier. You’ll see where we placed that a bit later in this post.

Here’s How Our Dallas Interior Design Firm & Home Designers Help Del Webb Texas Homeowners:
Our Dallas, Frisco, & Allen interior design firms are different than our competitors, especially when it comes to downsizing. We like to make the experience one that Del Webb Texas homeowners enjoy without regrets or concern that someone will throw out all of your belongings. All of our designers have aging parents or grandparents. We treat you as we want others to treat them.
Here are just a few ways we are different than other local Dallas interior design firms:
1. We are compassionate and never in a hurry.
Trips down memory lane are extremely important to us. We compassionately go through each piece of furniture and your belongings to provide the best options for your home’s aesthetic.
2. We love refinishing vs. discarding.
Often times, we find complete diamonds in the ruff and unlike most interior designers, we love refinishing, reupholstering.
3. We want your home to function for you, forever.
Unlike most interior designers, we are not about our egos or taking the final home tour photos. While we want your house to be photo-worthy, our interior design process is all about you, the homeowner.
4. We treat you as we want our parents to be treated.
