This modern French country retreat combines the nature and lifestyle of The Woodlands with the contemporary designs found in urban Houston. For our clients, having the best of both worlds was a must! And we are so proud to have given them exactly what they wanted.
Renovating a historic home is one of the most rewarding things as I do as a designer. And as a homeowner! Giving these old homes new love and new life honors their unique beauty. There’s a certain magic and romance to it. And I love marrying traditional or iconic designs with contemporary finishes. Add in some hi-tech touches, and you have a home that is renewed, livable, and functional. It’s a win/win/win.
But renovations can also be scary. With older homes, you really can’t be sure of what you’re getting into!
It’s hard to believe that spring is right around the corner and that means lots of spring cleaning and organizing. Luckily, we’ve gotten a jump start thanks to the help of Cathryn Linn from the Organizing Organization. Last month we began the process of organizing one of the most important spaces in the Laura U studio – the library. Would you believe we spent more than 4 days sorting and purging?!
I love projects that really exemplify these 3 key elements: classic elegance, functionality, and comfort. We hit the trifecta in this romantic, contemporary home. The client has a young family and loves to travel, so she desired a space that was foremost family-friendly, but also worldly and sophisticated.
