Traci Connell Talks Design & Architecture Partnerships at Dallas Market

Traci Connell of Traci Connell Interiors hosted a riveting and relevant panel discussion during Dallas Market Center’s fall season of Dallas Design Week. The featured talk, titled “Perfecting the Partnership between Designer, Architect and Home Builder” What they really want from a designer’s perspective,” offered solutions for cross-genre teamwork. 

Arch-Interiors designer and House Tipster host Christopher Grubb was on the scene with Dallas-local Connell, Mark Gray and Maurie Gray from M-Gray Architecture, and Gary Starr from Starr Construction, to hear them talk about this important design intersection.

All of these creators have worked together on projects, so they know how important it is to be a unified presence in front of their clients.

“The first project was an investor,” Connell shared about the group’s origins. “She found a lot and home in Preston Hollow [Dallas] that she was going to level. She was interviewing architects, and introduced me to Mark and Maurie. Gary was actually building on the same street, so that’s actually how the trio happened. It was a successful project, and we’re working with each other again on some other projects.”

“The point of [the panel] is how to do that collaboratively for not only renewed partnerships in the future, but how to appear confidently in front of the client and utilize our strengths together.”
