This is a newly-built house in Houston, but I would swear it was air-lifted straight out of the Tuscan countryside. There are gorgeous reclaimed materials-stone, tile, wood, shutters, doors- throughout. It has a sophistication that is approachable and comfortable, and yet it remains deeply rooted the serene. Come take a look.
These reclaimed shutters were originally 10 feet tall, but were scaled down to fit the window here.
Glorious stone everywhere!
And brick work arches to frame the views. The refrigerators are covered in zinc to allow them to blend in.
Plaster and old beams play a supporting role to the ornate furnishings.
A dreamy bedroom to soothe one's daytime anxieties away.
The blue shutters wear their original paint. They contrast beautifully with the sprakly chandelier.
The soaring staircase makes a grand statement.
And a covered patio with more stonework to complete the scene.
A most beautiful house indeed! All those aged finishes have me swooning.
Until next time...
