Loft project

I just started a new project with one of the students from my last Creative Class.  I have known Sarah for quite a while..we first worked together when she and her husband lived in Canada and now she is moving to Houston!  They have found this amazing loft in Midtown and I am so excited to help them make it a true home.


Yes these are just phone pics but we had to document the before..before fresh paint and getting rid of some early 2000 dated elements. But overall it is such an amazing space and needs very little.


I love the old gym floors they used…especially the random black planks.


You can see a paint sample there to the right of the red niche…lots of track lighting that may need to go but thankful there is good natural light above kitchen.



This was a uniform manufacturing area before turned into apartments…of course the stairs and upper build out were added.


I can’t wait to add chunkier pendants and honed/brushed granite to look like soapstone!


I am actually headed there today to work on paint samples..we are trying to find the perfect dark gray blue for the master suite upstairs, trying to channel this SoHo NYC House vibe.

The master is on a third floor and opens out onto a great patio balcony area…hard to get a good shot of but it will be so good!


I can’t wait to paint those closet doors all dark! Bad pic of master below but its so much larger in person and I just love how it opens to this outdoor space.


Keep watching for updates, I know it’s frustrating how slow this takes in real time and then for real life normal decorators like me and my clients to get photos up and things finished but its not TV, totally real life.  So thanks for being patient, I have a list of new work I need to tweak and photograph and get online…one day at a time!  Thanks for always coming back even when things seem slow!

Sealy house update

The homeowners have finally moved into this amazing old home that I blogged about here . . .  I am looking forward to sharing more complete images but for now a few sneak peeks starting with this downstairs powder room!


This powder is just right off the kitchen which has turned out so pretty!

This was our inspiration board for the kitchen . . . the Visual Comfort bakery lights and glass (not lucite) hardware are a nod to the Victorian Era . . .


The range oh the range! The homeowners own several bakeries in Houston so this range oven will get put to good use!

Plus its just pretty. . . along with polished marble counters and an entire wall of subway to add interest and utility in a tight space!


In the entry, the stairs got fresh needlepoint look animal carpet from Stark! Keeps the house from being too stuff or old for his young couple. Turned out so fun and classy!


In fact, floors in this home were one of the best part of the projects..original wood floors where possible and buffalo check “tile” in the laundry and hex in baths…lots of hex..very true to the age of the home.


Don’t be afraid to mix floors as long as colors are similar it adds to the charm of the house and is a nod the fact that laundry and kitchen areas in old home were often added on and “evolved”;

Love this shot of the back door.  The homeowners added a new porch along back of the house that mirrors the original wraparound porch on front!


This tile is simply from Daltile but adds so much to the laundry room along with the Henry light.

This was the exterior mid way through remodel.


A few more snaps of homeowners Mike and Vanessa and the longggg process.  I think they will agree it has been worth the wait and the construction company did an amazing job!

I can’t wait to show more.  It has been such an honor to work on this  home. The homeowners are great people and it has been a joy!
