Our team reinvigorated this River Oaks area mid-rise to ensure it captures restfulness and elegance for the visiting owners and their friends. We chose a neutral palette and added splashes of blues, oranges and greens to invigorate and modernize.
A full-face lift was given to the entire unit, having new bathrooms, kitchen, storage and updates throughout including furnishings, drapery treatments and lighting. The original parquet flooring was kept, but the floors in all the other spaces including the wrap-around patio were updated. A sumptuous deep piled carpet was added in the bedrooms to ensure comfort along with custom headboards and draperies. Both bathrooms were gutted to arrive at a much more current style of elegance, featuring whites and grays with over-sized mirrors. The kitchen was also gutted, and the utility reworked to perform as an open storage and new refrigeration area. With the kitchen, our team reconfigured the room for an easier workspace and to open up to more natural light. The dining room wall was taken out to accentuate the windows that were hidden behind–what an incredible impact that made on the entire feel of the space!
Furnishings were equally as important as were the finish selections. In the living area, the seating pieces are plush and inviting and the dining areas provide comfortable seating for hours of conversation. Lighting fixtures, lamps and tables are fashioned out of iron, which adds warmth and texture to the areas. The cocktail table was custom made in an unusual shape that emulates a drum–bringing another interesting organic flair to the mix. The artwork varies from small portraits to still life to modern organic shapes.
The modern feel of the space, with comfortable pieces and interesting items that feel collected from travels, all make a wonderful place to stay on a visit for these second homeowners and their lucky friends who get to visit them.
