Founded by Julie Dodson of Houston-based Dodson Interiors in 2016, the Designer Dream Spree was formed to attract nationally recognized A-list interior designers to experience the Round Top Antiques Festivals, and to consider Round Top a destination for fine antiques, unique finds, fabulous vintage objects, and quintessential Texas hospitality while also drawing the attention of national media. 

Designer Dream Spree also collaborates with architects and celebrity designers in the transformation of historical homes in need of complete renovation to create modern country houses and cottages.  The Idea Cottage in 2017, and the Farmhouse Showcase in 2020, are two examples of Designer Dream Spree’s dedication to the design community. Funds raised from these events benefit Designers for Change and local area animal shelters.



The Designer Dream Spree “Farmhouse Showcase” is a collaboration between Dodson Interiors and Newberry Architects in partnership with The Compound and The Joseph Company.

Experience a completely transformed 1940's post-depression era farmhouse.
