GHBA Prism Award Winner!

October 5th was a big night for Wamhoff Development and By Design Interiors!  Every year, the Greater Houston Builders Association hosts an annual awards gala to recognize great design and building in the Houston area. "The GHBA Sales & Marketing Council has been honoring the building industry's finest for more than 30 years with its elegant dinner and awards gala, Houston's Best PRISM Awards. The PRISM (Professional Results in Sales & Marketing) distinction has long been synonymous with the industry's highest caliber of excellence."
Wamhoff Development and I entered a recent project in the "Whole House Renovation" category.  The category highlighted projects where a home has gone through significant renovation and may include the exterior changes as well.  

You may have seen this project in the past.... and now it's a Prism Award Winner!

The project was in immense undertaking and involved adding a large portion to the house to create a new master suite, renovations to every bathroom, expanding the living areas and certainly the kitchen, and new furniture throughout as well. 

In case you haven't seen the pictures yet..... enjoy!

Kitchen and breakfast area with custom cabinetry, stone and copper backsplash, beautiful Colosseum Granite, and stone flooring.

Great room - perfect for lounging, catching up, or housing an entire family for holidays. 

Master bathroom!

One of my favorite spaces.... the powder bathroom!

My favorite place to sit in the house, the homeowner and I have had many meetings in this space.

So, I actually didn't attend the awards ceremony and found out when my boss, Peggy, texted me the amazing news!  It was about 9pm on Saturday night.  I promptly went to Kroger, picked up a couple bottles of champagne and headed over to the Wamhoff's. Greg had no idea what I was doing there and was equally surprised when I handed him a bottle.  His reaction of jumping in the air and high-fiving everyone in the room when I told him the news was.... priceless! :)

  1. WOW - I love the interior! Especially the powder room and the seating in the great room. Love the "ranch" feel of it all.
    Great Job!

  2. Congrats! Very excited for you!
