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.
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.
