This quietly elegant River Oaks home has been in the family for multiple generations. The current homeowner wanted to make these rooms feel more like they were in her style, but still paying homage to her parents’ tastes.
The sun room needed a remodel when exterior doors were changed out, so it was the perfect time to rework the floor and the walls. A nicely textured slate looking tile was selected to pull out the blues, green and taupe of the room. Next came the rug choice, selected for its tight weave, beautiful blues and updated take on a traditional pattern.
Furniture was taken from several rooms throughout the house, reworked and upholstered in soft greens and muted raspberry tones. Multiple patterns using geometrics, small prints, florals and plaids grace the room and add an air of being collected and cozy. Pillows have lovely trims providing a subtle touch of elegance. This intimate space has a spot for everyone in the house, no matter if working, reading, relaxing or just hanging out for an afternoon chat.
The powder room was also updated at this time. The beautiful smaller scale hex tile in cream and deep brown marble set the tone for the rest of the space. We chose this as we wanted it to feel original to the home. The antique bureau was found and turned into a lovely vanity, topped with honed marble and aged looking sink fixtures that pull it all together. Beautiful patterned wallpaper in a tone between raspberry and red was used to make the room pop and topping it off, the crystal sconces grace either side of the antique mirror. An updated twist to a 1930s classic.
