Bruce Budd Designs A Houston Home

Bruce Budd Design entryway

Many of you may have already seen this home in Houston designed by Bruce Budd in collaboration with
Bute King Architects, previously featured in Architectural Digest.  The
Georgian style home is redecorated portraying a quintessentially Bruce
Budd style, elegant and classic
with modern touches in the form of art.  The relaxed but elegant
atmosphere of the decor throughout the home was the response to the
homeowner’s request for a home with a welcoming environment to entertain
his grown children and grandchildren.  The transitional
style is timeless and up-to-date.  The home’s casual and relaxed but
still formal decor is thankful to the mixture of expensive antiques,
modern art and humble materials as woven straw, linen, cotton, materials
that are usual staples of Budd’s design.
To give the formal home a sense of lightness, Budd
limed the Louis XV boiserie paneling as well as the floors and millwork
throughout the house.

I’ve stated many times how I love traditional Interior Architecture
juxtaposed with modern art but, I think I haven’t mentioned enough how
much that same interior design style is equally stunning when applied to
the exterior of a home.
In this home’s garden for example, the setting is traditional with
modern sculptures that seem to perfectly contrast with nature.

In the dining room we can see a continuation of a soothing blue and white palette.  The Louis VXI style chairs are upholstered in a modern pattered fabric by Hable Construction.

One of the guest rooms is upholstered including ceiling, in a stripped blue and white fabric by Bennison.  The iron canopy beds are from John Rosselli & Assoc.  Love the modern touch of the side tables.
Another guest room with a similar atmosphere as the previous one.

I love the feeling in this room where comfortable and more laid back furniture are set in a more formal room but somehow the atmosphere is light and fresh.
