Carla Fonts

Principal

A Dallas native and design enthusiast, Carla Fonts prides herself on seeing the beauty in every client’s home. “I want to make your home someplace that brings you joy, someplace you never want to leave”, Carla says when describing her ambitions taking on new projects. Carla pulls inspiration from her Cuban heritage as well as her many summers spent in Miami, Palm Beach and the Caribbean. When Carla founded Dunbar Road Design in 2016, she knew she wanted to bring these influences to Dallas. Her interiors speak for themselves, as they radiate her infectious personality through bright colors, eye catching pieces and gorgeously selected furnishings.
