If you thought the fact that Stephanie Hollman's new home has a swimming pool in the living room (yes, you read that right) was pretty amazing, you ain't seen nothin' yet. The Real Housewives of Dallas mom has some pretty "incredible" plans for that mansion we saw her husband, Travis Hollman, purchase earlier this season.
Stephanie gave all the deets on her home renovations, which have been underway for more than four months, when The Daily Dish caught up with her recently. And let's just say that Stephanie's decision to ultimately cover that much-talked-about pool isn't the only major change coming to the new Hollman house. Find out how else Stephanie will be transforming the crib in the clip, above.
Stephanie also shared what inspired the overhaul in the first place. "It was an amazing place; it just felt very like a hotel. It felt like you were walking in a hotel and not a home, and I just like things to be cozy," she said. "Like when I'm raising my children, I want them to feel like they can live there and not just feel [like they have to be] careful with everything."
As for the actual look of the house, Stephanie is hoping to go bold. "So I want to do something a little different because I've always done more neutral tones in the house, but I want to do pops of color. I want to do something on the more modern side because everything is so clean-looking in this house, like the lines are really clean," she said. "So still warm and cozy, but more on the modern edge and definitely more color. Like, I want more artwork with pops of color, and I want more colorful couches and pillows. I just want it to be bright and happy."
If Stephanie's new home is anything like her current abode, you know it's going to be something special. Why, Stephanie has even already been nominated for "Most Likely to Live in a Mansion" in this year's The Real Housewives Awards, which she told The Daily Dish "is so funny because I did not live in a mansion growing up."
