Midcentury modern home in Houston gets an inspiring makeover

Jamie Bush + Co. is responsible for the interior overhaul of this midcentury modern home located in River Oaks, a leafy residential area in the heart of Houston, Texas. This home was originally designed in 1963 by architects Neuhaus & Taylor, offering an exterior of variegated bricks and a wraparound colonnade. Living spaces were designed to overlook a central patio with lush vegetation.

The homeowners, a couple with two daughters, sought to renovate and restore this home in 2014, commissioning Murphy Mears Architects for the task. Sometime later, the owners requested designer Jamie Bush to completely redesign of the interiors. The couple loves modernism, but they felt their home was too sterile, wishing to add some whimsy, color and natural materials. The designers’ approach was to layer onto what was already existing, injecting the warmth of the exterior into the interior.

What We Love: This midcentury modern renovation project transformed a sterile home into one with charisma and vivaciousness. Designer furnishings are mixed with vintage pieces, building character to the interior living spaces. Overall, this transformation is a reflection of its owner’s, creating a family home that is filled with love and personality.
