Today’s project reveal is for the entertainers at heart. What do you do when you love to host family and friends, but simply don’t have the space to do it? That was the dilemma facing our Georgetown client. With four children and two dogs, this family of 8 was quickly outgrowing their current home. They needed more space, a home with outdoor living areas and a big game room indoors. Most importantly, they wanted to create a comfortable retreat for all of their guests year round.
A few years ago, Michael and I decided to purchase a charming 1930s home in the Southgate neighborhood, near Rice University. At the time, the home boasted two bedrooms and one (yes, one) bathroom. The configuration was not at all functional for me, Michael, and our young twins. But I had fallen in love with the ivy-covered facade. I made a commitment to restore the home, with practical updates perfect for my growing family of four.
I’m excited to share this project with you because it’s a little different from what we normally do. Color is a must in our Classically Current interiors, but finding color inspiration from birds was a first for us. When our newest client requested a colorful, nature-inspired interior design for her home, we didn’t hesitate to say yes!
Today, I’m excited to re-visit this Indo-Asian-inspired high rise we designed for a wonderful couple in Houston. This collected interior was featured in Rue Magazine last year and is still one of our favorites!
French interior design is well known for its sophistication and simplicity. For today’s project reveal, our client hoped for a French Country look with glamorous updates that comfortably supported their growing family of 6. This classic home received a modern update, blending luxurious finishes with comfortable, communal spaces the whole family could enjoy. We’re thrilled to have been able to give them a home that reflects their unique personalities.
I love projects that really exemplify these 3 key elements: classic elegance, functionality, and comfort. We hit the trifecta in this romantic, contemporary home. The client has a young family and loves to travel, so she desired a space that was foremost family-friendly, but also worldly and sophisticated.
I can’t express how much I enjoy home renovations! I always find it exciting to restore the original beauty of a home. Renovation projects also align perfectly with my Classically Current design philosophy. My goal for every interior is to create beautiful and enduring spaces enjoyed for generations to come.
The only thing guaranteed in life is change. Things are constantly evolving, growing and taking you to new places. And design is a lot like life. It changes based on your style preferences, lifestyle, and location. One of my favorite parts of being a designer is getting to walk through life with our clients. Whether it’s working on a new home construction project, designing a nursery or doing renovations, sharing these moments with our clients is so exciting!
The kitchen is the heart of your home and the table is where memories are made. I have so many wonderful stories with friends and family that took place around my table over shared meals, so kitchens are a very special place for me.
Whether you’re cooking dinner for the family, hosting your friends or enjoying a date night, your kitchen should be inviting, beautiful and of course functional. Today I’m diving into my favorite things about this stunning modern kitchen. It gives off some serious industrial vibes, while maintaining a fresh and inviting feel.
