Dramatic Eclectic Facelift

Gracefully aligned with its golf course views and located in northwest Houston, this grand home is owned by an empty nest couple. Over the years, they had collected many unique treasures and antiques that had taken over the home. At our first meeting, I could see that they both had a fun, vibrant personality that wasn't being showcased well in their home. The key to this design was pairing down my clients' great collections and the addition of pattern and color to bring out their character.

When we started the kitchen design, I knew that we needed to better connect the kitchen and breakfast room spaces, as they were being separated by a full length television unit and storage cabinet. By removing these items I was able to give them a custom built in breakfast table and still leave enough room for comfortable lounge seating with their morning coffee. As for the television, I designed a custom built in entertainment center to hold the television and some of their unique treasures.

I was happy to hear my client say, “We now sit in our redesigned rooms and never fail to state how awesome the room is, as do our family and friends.” Without a complete kitchen redo (paint, space planning, new furniture and window treatments) I was able to give new life to this room and increase the functionality and flow throughout the home.
