Colonial style home in Texas gets fresh and breezy makeover

transitional-living-room

A Colonial style home has been given a fresh and sophisticated update by Marie Flanigan Interiors, located in the River Oaks neighborhood of HoustonTexas. The home was designed for a young family who requested to have gracious living spaces for themselves and their overnight guests that routinely come to visit. The remodel includes light-filled and cozy spaces such as the window seat in the living room heaped with plush pillows to the baby nursery decorated with a collection of prints illustrating cities where the couple has previously lived.

Plenty of texture was added to create inviting spaces through the use of massive reclaimed wood beams in the ceilings to heavily grained wood furnishings, adding a touch of rusticity. A soothing neutral color palette was incorporated into the design scheme, offering an overall air of lightness. The designer has added layers to the floors, walls and ceilings with natural, organic textures that creates visual interest.

The property also includes a guest house, which has also been decorated with a neutral color scheme. The spaces includes its own private living quarters, encompassing a living, dining and kitchen area. The design is slighting more modern than the main house, but it is in keeping with the same clean-lined, layered aesthetic. Natural materials of linen and rattan can be seen applied in both spaces, while furnishings gathered for over a decade creates a timeless and collected look. Metal accents such as iron can also be seen throughout, adding a graphical impact and industrial air.

What We Love: A restrained palette of bright and airy neutrals pop with the designer’s use of texture and light. The contrast of organics, woods and metals creates an exciting visual impact… Readers what are your thoughts on this Colonial style home?
