The clients’ love for their native California home needed to be appropriately interpreted for their new Texas residence. Textural elements, a monochromatic color palette, and organic influences are primary in their spaces. The family room is large and easily handles the double chaise sectional while still feeling amazingly intimate. Clean lines on the stack stone fireplace wall and supple wood grain speak simplicity in the room. The light fixture’s unique styling punctuates the room with an unexpected twist to keep the room lively. Our wood elements, fireplace and water views create the zen-style environment my clients adore. With a nod to the West Coast, the contemporary formal living spacehome features hints of Asian influence and the clients love for California sunsets. The two-story ceiling height allowed us to use large scale furnishings and appointments with bold colors to create an amazing impact in the sleek space. The honed marble floors cast some formality throughout the home, but keep it from feeling pretentious. Because the home has a southern exposure, it’s flooded with indirect light, enabling us to forego window treatments and keep the open view to the pool and golf course.
