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.
A very bright corridor with topiaries and light antique furniture.
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 striped 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.
