A few weeks ago, I posted about how our clients’ home appeared on the cover of Luxe Magazine last month   Our entire team is still so excited and grateful for that opportunity. Today, I wanted to take you through the before and after photos of the project. When I arrived, our clients had just purchased the home from a builder who built the project on spec.  Our clients hired our firm to add their aesthetic to the home and make it work for their family.

This post will be broken into two posts so I can show you the entire home.  Today I will share the BEFORE and AFTERS for the formal dining room, formal living room, and master bedroom and bathroom. Stay tuned for next week’s post which will include the remainder of the house!

Wallpaper is back……and in a big way! There are so many different wallpaper options out there these days. We love using them to add  color, pattern and texture. Here are some of our favorite projects where the wallpaper made a big impact on the space:


Here are some examples of wallpaper in bedrooms. 

This is a great example of using a patterned wallpaper. This Schumacher wallpaper from Celerie Kemble was in our guest bedroom design in the Traditional Home Hamptons Showhouse in 2015.


In this bedroom, we used a solid grasscloth on the walls to add texture and we also used a silverleaf block patterned paper on the ceiling. The shine in this paper added a unique look.


Here we have a more modern bedroom with a printed grasscloth on the back wall. This makes the headboard wall the star of this room!


And we love using paper in bathrooms! Take a look at some of these spaces:











Wallpaper doesn’t have to only used in a bedroom or bathroom. We also use it in laundry rooms as well as dining rooms…




I hope these examples will inspire you to use wallpaper in your next project!

In the heat of Summer,  many of you are using your outdoor living spaces by the pool on a regular basis. We find that now is the time we like to start thinking about a refresh of those spaces for Fall.

Things like a new rug, new cushions and even new furniture can get you ready for Fall entertaining and grilling. Here in Texas we use our outdoor spaces almost year round, so don’t forget a fire pit to roast marshmallows, a full outdoor kitchen and all of the furniture and accessories you need to make it feel more like a room.

Here are some of our favorite outdoor living spaces we have designed for our clients::
