Waterside Retreat Before & After!

Lakeside Retreat Renewed

Taylor Lake, Texas, January 2013 – The peace, tranquility, and pure relaxation you find in a spa all within the privacy of your very own home. Does this sound too good to be true? When a married couple in the Seabrook area contacted the MFI team requesting an update to their lakeside home, that is exactly what our design team set out to accomplish.

Marie Flanigan, Principal Designer, states “this project is unique because we were able to transform their spaces without simply making them larger (something else?)”. Functionality was improved, architectural beauty was enriched, and the entire home became a more fitting reflection of the chic couple that lives within.

Master Bedroom: A handsome wool area rug sets the tone in the master bedroom. The rug displays a modern twist on a more traditional pattern and combines a soothing mixture of gold and grey tones. Gently playing off of these hues, the rest of the room’s furnishings take on a calming neutral color palette. This palette serves as the perfect backdrop for the use of warm, rich rust tones and diverse decorative fabrics. Linen, velvet, silk and wool come together and showcase a luxurious and contemporary room that finds itself united with a powerful sense of tradition.

Adhering to our client’s desire to incorporate pre-existing antiques, many of their personal furniture pieces were preserved. Any new items were selected based on the unique charm they offered to the space. An over-scale antiqued French chandelier hangs at the end of the bed serving as both a distinctive focal point and a dramatic statement. The more contemporary items, such as the white animal hide bench, mirrored coffee table and gilded iron table lamps, offer modern lines that present an attractive contrast against the turn-of-the-century oak bedroom set.
