In this house, which fuses contemporary design with traditional elements, Houston-based designer Marie Flanigan has created a home that exudes a relaxed, lush vibe in a very American way.
As with most projects, there is one element that immediately draws my eye – in this case it was the impressive raw timber beams. I love how these beams speak of the craftsmanship in the home, but also add visual relief from the highly detailed joinery and strongly veined marble that features throughout. Indeed, the joinery is sharp and modern but works to ensure that even though this is a large and grand home, the spaces feel comfortable and approachable.
The furniture throughout is a mix of modern and classic pieces and all in tones of greys, browns and whites, which carries through the relaxed narrative set by the architecture. Importantly, the furniture adds a layer of texture to each room and gives each space a sense of character. ??High-end, calm and current – it’s a yes from me!
