Built in 1957, Green Tree is a fantastic example of Houston’s contribution to mid-century, residential architecture. The 3-bedroom Tanglewood ranch was purchased just for this reason. The homeowners are avid travelers, art lovers, and collectors of mid-century furnishings, many of which were re-upholstered for this home.
Upon entry, new terrazzo flooring honors the home’s history. The living room is a testament to clean lines – a daybed from Mr. Brown with a bolster in Pierre Frey fabrics lends a luxe touch and introduces the linear symmetry of the fireplace. Our team designed this dual fireplace to add light and bring contrast; each side is unique, so that when you move from room to room the experience is dynamic. A lacquered ceiling in the dining room sets a moody tone that is intimate, personal, and sophisticated.
The clients spared no expense to achieve the mid-century style they hoped for. From the Poggenpohl kitchen to the Ann Sacks tile, high-end finishes define the overall look of the home. But perhaps our favorite spot is the breakfast area. We accentuated an existing brick wall with a custom cabinet, Saarinen table and chairs, and a statement-making Hudson Valley Lighting chandelier. The home is careful not to seem like a time capsule, and instead exudes timeless style with handsome woodwork and vibrant textiles.
