Southern Bachelor Pad

No two client is exactly the same... even if two people have similar styles, there are always unique quirks that set them apart. A tile, piece of furniture, or paint color will never be used the same way twice.  That's the amazing things about design... no wrong answers, just millions of possible solutions. 

Recently, a project wrapped up with a client that is entirely unique and someone I know I will never work with the likes of again.  A true Southern gentleman who wanted a rich, warm, and elegant home.

Not only did I spruce up his furniture, lighting, and window treatments, Keechi Creek Builders, Accent Cabinets, and I revamped his entire living space including the kitchen.  Accent Cabinets was  instrumental in the beautiful kitchen design and Keechi Creek made sure all of the various parts and and pieces fell into place. 

Take a tour of this warm traditional home!

Dining Room
Custom upholstered chairs are wrapped in fabrics that resist liquids... spill some wine? No problem! While the host and hostess chair backs are adorned in a striped fabric, the guest chairs have a beautiful Ralph Lauren pattern. 
Family Room
In the back corner of the comfy cozy family room lies the newly expanded wine grotto complete with storage for hundreds of bottles of wine, stone floors and ceiling, and a beautiful herringbone pattern created out of beveled travertine tiles on the back wall. 
Family Room Fish Tank
Since it is Texas after all, the client opted to remove the fireplace on the first floor and replace it with a gigantic salt water fish tank!  
Guest Bathroom
The upstairs guest bathroom is one of my favorite bathroom projects... ever! I love how taking a classic material - ceramic subway tile - and jazzing it up a bit complete revamps a material that most people don't want to see.
Guest Bedroom
Each bedroom also received a new look with custom bedding and window treatments.
Guest Bedroom
While each bedroom is unique, they all have a similar color scheme and flow easily from one space to the next.

Living Room
The client's favorite painting has a place of prominence in the living room. In stead of opting for a traditional seating arrangement in the living room, this room is full of various chairs and a chaise accompanied by small side tables. It's the perfect place for a group of friends to relax and chat over a glass of wine.

Big, BIG thanks to Keechi Creek and Accent Cabinets!! For more info on these two amazing companies, click on their names to be directed to their websites.
