I love incorporating vivid colors and prints into my designs. It can range from geometric, animal prints, organic shapes or the good ole’ stripes and polka dots – there’s always a place for patterned fabrics in your interiors. Prints and patterns are a great way to add depth, interest and personal touches to your home! So whether you like to layer patterns with solid colors or other prints, they allow for you to make as bold or as subtle of a statement as you like.
For today’s project reveal, we are taking a trip back to 2014. I know that a design from 4 years ago may seem a bit dated, but I can assure you, this home is anything but stuck in the past. The romantic design with modern details is the perfect representation of this sophisticated couple. A large piece of art by Angela Fraleigh in the formal living room inspired the neutral colors and soft purple hues we used throughout their home.
Have you ever walked into a space and thought to yourself “Wow, is it just me or does my [insert any room here] look really dated?!” Don’t feel bad! When I walked into the fab 70s sunken living room in The Boulevard Show House, that was my first thought! After some slight miracle-working, that sunken lounge space is going to be the newest and best thing. Just like with fashion or music, your design style and preferences change over time.
It’s a big decision, but deciding to build a home is one of the most exciting things you can do! Yes, it’s definitely a labor of love, but there’s nothing quite like watching your dream home come to life. And walking into your home for the first time once it’s completed is something truly special.
Last week we got a glimpse of what individual pieces are making waves in the interior design world, but what about the big picture? Let’s take a step back and see what’s predicted to happen on a larger scale.
A big thanks to Darla Guillen at The Houston Chronicle for featuring Laura U Interior Design earlier in the week. We are excited to be chosen as the first designer featured in their four questions series! We were grateful for the opportunity to share some of our latest projects as well as some of our thoughts on design. Here’s the article, and some of the advice we had to share:
4 questions with Houston interior design pro Laura Umansky
This is the first installment in “4 questions,” a series dedicated to Houston’s top interior designers and the lessons they have to share.
[ezcol_1third]Today we wanted to highlight one of our favorite new interiors: our Heights Loft guestroom. This space is a great example of what to incorporate to ensure your guests are happy, comfy, and enjoy their visit!
The palette chosen for this room is absolutely urban & chic, but super versatile as well. The brick wall is contrasted with the delicate tones of the neutral walls, ivory headboard, and crisp bedding, while the strong red of the drapery, rug and accents is a fun compliment.
We are so thrilled with this look and love the unexpectedness of the black and white throw! But, by far, my favorite thing about this room are the glossy red lamps. Love. Them. So. Much.
