Please forgive the quality of our before pictures – they are from our iPhones!

The entire Team worked tirelessly to execute this spectacular space in just under two months. Hours and hours of work went into making this previously underwhelming room into one of the most unique in the showhouse.  Thank you to our devoted staff of designers, interns, our purchasing agent and our fabulous vendors for making this Writer’s Cottage truly come together!

Room Concept

“The space is re-imagined through the eyes of a 1920’s world traveler, presently settled at the Villa de Luxe: The ‘Writer’s Cottage’ encompasses a collection from his voyage abroad. He now resides in Houston, settled to write a novel of his worldly travels as he attends to this grand estate.”




Pretty tremendous transformation, right?!
We really loved the final product and were so happy to be a part of such a great group of Houston designers.
