Condo Interior Design Must-Haves and Challenges
Once we walked the space, we realized there were two design challenges we had to work with. One was the curvature of the building. The second was creating distinct spaces in the open floor plan while keeping a clear line of sight throughout.The curved windows are a lovely architectural detail, but a huge challenge for traditional furnishings. Instead of going on a wild goose chase for the perfect pieces, we designed custom furnishings. Our friends at House + Town fabricated them.We used rugs to create conversation zones. Carefully placed chairs and lighting helped to delineate between the living room and dining room.Let’s take a peek into this sleek, modern, and sophisticated Houston condo.
- Make the stunning views of the Houston skyline a key focal point of the design.
- Create distinct living room and dining room spaces in the open-concept main area.
- Build a designated space to display their extensive wine collection.
A Warm WelcomeEven though the condo is a smaller space, we wanted to make it feel as large as possible. We used a color palette of white and dark brown in this condo interior design to give it an open, but cozy feeling. We incorporated a fully mirrored wall and a natural mica panel in the inset ceiling to add depth. A clean line console table paired with lamps and a whimsical buffalo head add the perfect touch of personality.
To add visual interest, we incorporated textural details. The antique finish on the mirrored wall and the carved doors from Balinska’s Imports give the foyer an old-world, masculine feel. The contemporary chandelier mirrors the detailing in the stunning antique doors and adds a beautiful, feminine touch to the foyer.
Modern & Streamlined Condo Interior Design
For the kitchen, our clients wanted a modern and functional space that would look clean even during the peak of a dinner party. For a sleek look, I opted to avoid door pulls. This keeps the eye focused on the shimmering backsplash and silver Arianna Pendant lights from Arteriors. They’re a beautiful complement to the dark wood of the existing cabinetry.
Our clients wanted to create an entertaining space with their extensive wine collection at the center. Hello, glass walls! The climate-controlled wine cellar provides plenty of storage in a way that displays the wine beautifully. What a conversation starter!
Our clients had requested an inviting entertaining area and plenty of storage for their growing wine collection. Our bar pulls inspiration from their travels, as well as their love for modern design. The custom 3-panel light fixture and bar front, both by 3 Form, lend a contemporary vibe to the space. The climate-controlled wine cellar is the perfect touch.
Our open plan is oriented to the Houston Skyline
Because we have an open plan, the living room, dining room, bar, and kitchen all coexist peacefully. This allows us to capitalize on the AMAZING views of downtown Houston from all of the main spaces of the home. But our clients also wanted to create distinct zones for conversation and family gatherings. We created soft separations with thoughtfully placed rugs and subtle changes in the color palette. The living room color palette blends ivory and caramel with a splash of deep blue. In the dining room, we added a touch of soft coral that ties in the pillows on the couch.
For the living room, my design team created a custom curved sectional and paired it with a wrapped wood and glass console. A pair of modern Holly Hunt club chairs and Precision floor lamps from Circa Lighting separate the living room from the dining room. An ivory area rug and modern chandelier delineate the dining room area.At Laura U, we think every home deserves a show stopping powder room! In this powder bathroom, we used texture and organic designs to make a statement. We chose a gorgeous white onyx for the sink wall and floating vanity. The back lit mirror and sculptural sconces create a soft, flattering glow in the room. And a vase of fresh purple blooms ties in the hints of purple in the stone’s veining. It’s the perfect example of how you don’t need color to make a bold statement.
The Sophisticated Master SuiteThis master suite is all about blending texture and color. We pulled in the color palette from the main area and added a soft gray. It’s a soothing, elegant combination perfect for this master bedroom. A custom upholstered wall panel headboard adds visual texture and serves as the focal point of the room. The pair of cobalt blue accent chairs tie in the artwork on the wall and decorative bed pillows. It’s the perfect spot for the clients to relax when they’re watching tv.I believe in blending his and hers styles in the master bedroom above all other rooms. For obvious reasons, of course. It works really well here. Everything in this room has a pair, speaking to the homeowners’ connection. And I love the mingling of glass with wood. Natural elements are inherently grounding and comforting.
