A Houston couple in the midst of remodeling their 1940s River Oaks home decided that guest quarters for visiting family and friends should be added to the back of the property. They requested that the guest space be constructed over a fully operational garage and were adamant that the structure share the same traditional River Oaks style they fell in love with. They enlisted the help of a local builder who made this new construction with classic style a reality, and a design team that ensured the interior details were flawlessly aligned with the details they treasured in their main home.
Modestly-sized spaces were fitted with interesting architectural details, a color story that remains soft with brief bursts of bold color, and tailored décor featuring bold textures and industrial accents. The entry features handsome grid paneling, integrated stairway downlighting and a sleek custom handrail, creating an inviting space that sets a well-edited tone for the rest of the spaces to come. Once up the stairs, grid paneling gives way to shiplap paneling which is integrated throughout the majority of the living spaces. Superior functionality and lighting were essential to the success of the home’s design and these were achieved through the use of creatively hidden storage, multi-purpose furnishings and the addition of varying light forms. Paneled walls hide closets, cased openings and doorways were accented with shelves for storage and the kitchen table serves as both an island and the perfect spot for guests to dine. The home’s main windows were installed facing north and transom windows separate the living areas, allowing the home to embrace all the natural light Texas has to offer. A generous mixture of lighting sources combines beautifully with the home’s architectural elements and furnishings, creating the perfect getaway for guests.
