This dining room is the perfect size. It allows for a large dining table and plenty of room to move around. There are great features to this room including double chandeliers – Ziyi Large Chandelier – a fabulous wine closet, large silver closet and important panel detailing.
This 4th floor bedroom showcases that clean mix of masculine and feminine. The large pattern cut silk carpet from Tai Ping offers a textured base to the room. While the French inspired furnishings from Mecox Gardens give important balance. Lighting selections include The Garey Industrial Floor Lamp next to the bed; and The Large Carved Urn Table Lamp in Old Garden White finish is the perfect touch on the dresser. This room overlooks all of Houston and opens up to a large rooftop terrace, giving it an oasis feel.
The kitchen – the most important room in the house! This kitchen is large but cozy in feel. Added features include upgraded Miele appliances, antique honed granite countertops, picked washed custom cabinets, limestone hexagon tile floors, and circa lighting’s Small Hicks Pendant in Bronze/Hand-Rubbed Antique Brass finish.
The living room opens up to the kitchen and a large landing. Coral colors were chosen to showcase the beautiful wood floors, and the rich textured details. The room has many options for seating, dining and relaxing. The cast stone fireplace is a perfect focal point. The large carpet from Abrahams keeps the room light and reflects the collected quality of this home. And, of course, we love the addition of the Tripod Table Lamp and the 24″ Cabinetmakers Picture Light over the built-in bookcases.
The 1st floor parlor. This is your first impression. This room has herringbone brick floors, a cast stone fireplace, French doors that lead to an outdoor space, and fabulous storage. Butler Brothers, the developer, wanted this room to be a connection to the outdoors by giving it that easy to maintain quality. The lighting – including The Paris Floor Lamp - the textured wood detailing, the heavy linen fabrics and the sculptural furnishings all lend to that organic look.
