Inside the incredibly stunning remodel of a 1920s ranch-style Texas house

traditional home exterior

Laura U Design Collective has reimagined a 1920s ranch-style house nestled in the quiet tree-lined community of Hedwig Village, just outside of Houston, Texas. The homeowners loved their house but it did not quite meet their lifestyle needs. A full-scale renovation included a brand-new mudroom, an upgraded kitchen, and a completely refreshed owner’s bedroom suite.

Additionally, the project team created three new bedrooms with a second-floor addition. To seamlessly integrate the indoors with the outdoors, a loggia was incorporated. The loggia creates a semi-indoor, semi-outdoor space that is perfect for blurring the lines between interior and exterior.

What We Love: This ranch-style Texas house provides completely transformed living spaces that are warm and welcoming. The indoor and outdoor relationship of the home was greatly improved. A beautiful breakfast nook off the kitchen enjoys views of the new courtyard that was designed, creating a serene and inviting atmosphere for enjoying meals and moments of relaxation. Overall, the project team did a fabulous job of updating this home, creating a haven that balances comfort and style.

Above: Originally, this kitchen was cramped and non-functional for a family of five. For the redesigned layout, the square footage was increased, the case opening was expanded and the ceiling was popped for height. A custom oak island was designed to offer plenty of space for entertaining.

Above: Here, the project team expanded the floor plan by four feet so that the breakfast room wall aligns with the existing living room wall. Arched windows were added so that they line up to match the arch in the new loggia and fall centerline with the kitchen.

traditional home exterior

Above: The front porch of the original 1920s hunting lodge was reimagined, providing a fresh and welcoming space. The original doors are now centered under a trellis between two new windows.

Above: Built in the 1920s, this hunting lodge is original to the home. The architect wanted to preserve the lodge’s original character, opting to keep the structure intact — retaining its beams and planking the ceiling to match the beams. This space was renewed by integrating two large windows, a new coat of paint, and a new fireplace mantel.

traditional home bar

Above: Highlights of this home bar include penny gap planking and a French curve detail at the faucet. Sitting just off the hunting lodge, this space features a beverage drawer, ice maker, wine fridge, and plenty of storage space for the homeowner’s glassware.
