Heights Bungalow Master Bedroom

Located in the heart of the Heights Historic District, this 100 year old home was first renovated by a father / daughter team in 2009. The home had to be transformed from a duplex into a single family home and had been uninhabited since 1993, Originally an investment opportunity, the Daughter ended up not wanting to sell the property since it was this exact location that her Fiancé proposed. Now happily married and living in this historic bungalow, the couple asked our design team to help create an elegant and inviting interior space they can begin their new life in. They came to me with a desire to keep the restored feel of the home in tact but also be able to incorporate their contemporary style preferences and existing furniture.
Design Solutions:
To honor the historic heritage of the home the original wood floors were refinished and all doorways and windows were cased with original woodwork details. We used a vintage color palate (Sherwin-Williams Historic collection) while creating an eclectic mix of contemporary and antique furnishings. To add natural light and establish a connection to nature, a cased French door was added to the exterior wall which leads to an outdoor patio space. Luxurious bedding materials and accent pillows were added to their existing linens and an upholstered damask bench was placed at the foot of the bed for a soft functional accent. The far wall covered in purple/grey sisal wall-covering adds romance and elegant texture to the space without overwhelming the room. Accent lighting was used throughout for flexibility and functionality. The juxtaposition of geometric and organic forms creates a fun eclectic mix of styles and satisfies the couples love for both old & new. In the end, we created a warm and sophisticated retreat where the couple can escape, right in the heart of the city.
This project is entered into the Houston House & Home remodel contest! Look for us in this summer’s issue!
