Texas Homes - May 1985

In May 1985, Texas Homes published a special edition on "Lone Star Style: Who Makes It, Who Breaks It, Who Fakes It."

Listed among the issue's "Princes of the City" was Sherry Garrett. Here's what Texas Homes wrote:

"Sherry Garrett -- A sucker for the grand gesture, the Austin designer delivers elegant excess on a feathers-and-bijouterie par, full of magic and mystique."

Texas Homes - July 1982

Boudior In 1981, Sherry was one of 18 designers asked by Hospice Austin to design the interior of the organization's premier Designer Showhouse, which was then featured in the July 1982 issue of Texas Homes. The home, a 1937 French-inspired residence, on Woodlawn in Austin's Old Enfield Historic District. Sherry's assignment? The boudoir, dressing room and master bath.

Here's what Texas Homes reported about Sherry's work:

Glamour reigns supreme in the boudoir as well, but spiced with delicious wit and an unflappable élan masterminded by Sherry Garrett of Garrett Design.

Sherry Garrett The catalyst for the room's exotic decor, a festive antique Chinese banner was fashioned into a canopy for the circa-1880 Louis XVI-style bed; a 19th-century Empire-style chaise in pull-no-punches emerald silk satin, a slickly lacquered armchair in marbelized kidskin and a custom python-skin ottoman are scattered atop the Oriental rug. Just one shade deeper than the hand-painted amber wallcovering, elaborately draped curtains pool in golden puddles on the hardwood floor.

"People tend to be afraid of strong color, so I wanted to show how effective it can be," Sherry told Texas Homes.

Snakes Alive
A new line slithers into Dallas

"It takes a special person to appreciate this," Sherry Garrett admits, and the Austin-based designer wasn't at all sure how the head of a growing law firm would react to snakeskin in the reception area.

"But he loved them," she concludes with a grin, and now the woman who has harbored a lifelong fascination with snakes -- on childhood visits to the zoo, "I always spent more time in the reptile house' -- is creating furniture and accessories in vividly colored anaconda, whip-snake, cobra, python, and water-snake skins. She prefers eye-openers such as vermillion and coral, indigo and turquoise, peacock green and taxicab yellow, all in transparent washes that permit the distinctive patterns and markings to show through.

She also offers more subdued ivory, taupe, army green, and chestnut, plus metallic and pearlized finishes. "You wouldn't want an entire sofa of purple python," she admits, but in small doses, the effect is dynamic.
