Hi Friends!! Before I show you this amazing home, I wanted to say how fun it was for me to meet so many of you at Round Top! I hope you all found wonderful treasures and had so much fun with your friends and hubbies! The weather was great, the vendors brought such unique and special wares with them, but most of all putting so many faces with names was the best part of all for me!! Thank you so much to Marburger Farms Antique Show, Arbors and Susan Horne for hosting me at Texas’s biggest Antique fair! And now for a truly special one of a kind Houston home!
Located on one of the most prestigious streets in the Broadacres Historic District in Houston, this home from the outside in is one of my all time favorites and is for sale!! Bridget Degan with Martha Turner Sotheby’s International Realty has the listing and was so sweet to include Segreto’s finishes when promoting the home.
Totally renovated with a French Renaissance flair & endless detail it sits on a 40,239 sq.ft. lot and has 4 BR & 4.5 BTH, 2 BR guest house and pool. I actually showed my architect this 1939 jewel when sending him inspiration pics for my redo! This has to be one of my favorite periods in architecture!!!
This house is in Segreto Style and it is really fun to see how the homeowner has mixed some more contemporary elements with her classically French antiques. I have always loved these French oak floors from Custom Floors Unlimited-masterful!!!
Plastered in a bright white, t
Pour a glass of wine, snuggle up in your favorite chair and take a home tour with me into the world of SEGRETO style …
I love wine–hehe… the chaise and of course the finish on the paneling!!
There are so many cozy sitting areas in this home.
Who wouldn’t love this room!! With lavenders and whites it also overlooks the pool and back yard. The beams are truly old but the ceiling is made from grade 2 pine which we refinished to feel reclaimed.
The ladies lounge sits off the kitchen. I love painted floors and and this design is one of my fav’s we do!! This household has pets and kids, it is great to see how well it has held up to wear and tear!
What a Marie Antoinette style master retreat. Our stenciling on the walls and gold detail on the cabinets compliment thesink and hardware.
A dressing room all her own with plenty of room for shoes and bags and a beautiful view to the backyard from her make up table!!!
The little princess of the house had a precious room all of her own!! Notice the corbels hung like tables and her christening dress framed as art!!! LOVE that!!!
The back yard is as pretty as the front! I have had the pleasure of being invited to a pool party here! Needless to say–super fun. I hope you enjoyed this home tour as much as I loved seeing it years later in a different light. This homeowner has GREAT taste and we are working on designs for her new home now! Can’t wait to share!
Every week Lori, Segreto’s bookkeeper, puts inspirational quotes in the gangs paychecks each week to encourage them to inspire and give back to others. I really liked this one and thought you might too!!
