After nearly four years of anticipation, the beloved Dallas restaurant Mirador has reopened with an elevated look. “We wanted it to be a jewel box,” says Joslyn Taylor, partner at Swoon, the Studio, who designed the space with founder Samantha Sano.

To contrast and balance the masculine lines of the building, the designers implemented curved elements and references to nature. Lush materials and a palette of warm golds, reds, blushes and burl wood wash the dining room in a sunset glow. Visitors can still catch floor-to-ceiling views of downtown through the existing steel windows. “People had such a strong connection with the original place,” Taylor reflects. “We want this to feel like Mirador 2.0.”
