Wanting a turn-key summer retreat, this Texas couple gave me a budget, a wish list, and said, “GO!” They wanted to return to a brand new space “reality TV reveal style”. The clients wanted to be pushed out of their traditional style and wanted color. I used soothing green as the base with pops of yellow and watermelon color for a fresh summer look. I kept a few traditional elements while adding some pieces for a “collected, world traveler” look.
The owners of this new condominium in the Encore were downsizing from a 3500 sq ft house to just under 1000 sq ft. Both desired a sleek and clean contemporary design that allowed for maximum functionality and storage while maintaining an uncluttered and harmonious design aesthetic. Their requirements were met through the use of a limited color pallet, multifunctional furniture and custom built-ins.
Clean-line traditional furnishings best describes this transitional styling. This high-rise condominium corner unit is filled with light from wall to wall windows on two sides. The bright light was one of the main reasons the owner selected this unit. Existing furniture was positioned to take advantage of the view and ample light. Lacking a fireplace, a custom wall unit with a vent-less fireplace was designed and installed.
THE MADELEINE RECTORY
The offices in the Rectory of The Madeleine Church where severely outdated and no longer functional for the needs of the staff and parishioners. A tight budget required creative solutions while updating the offices in keeping with the existing character of the building. New flooring, ceilings, crown molding and painted walls contributed to a much brighter and refreshed surrounding. New furniture and space planning completed the redesign to create a functional and beautiful environment.
