Industrial Ranch Part 2!!

Aug 08, 2011

Sorry about the posts that keep getting sent to you each day!!  Technology!!  I hope you enjoyed seeing the transformation last week of this wonderful ranch style home with an industrial twist!!  Although the home took longer to build–all the tile, finishes and furniture selections were made and installed in 4 months. Last week we left off with the kitchen, this leads us to the back hall and master suite.


I think the old plow over the painted console from Judith McClellan is such a wonderful combination with the jade lamps from Heights Antiques on Yale. I love shopping in the heights.  You may have to dig a bit, but there are some great finds for throwback prices. The chandelier is from MAI Consigned.  I am so honored to have one of my art pieces “Glimmer”  hanging in the back hallway!!


Leading into the master suite here is another one of the skins that Beverly is finding a home for.  No worries…Karen says its friendly!!  The homeowners don’t want to worry about their dogs ruining things, so Beverly purchased remnants from The Great Rug Company on Fondron and had them bound.  This way, guilt free, the owner can just replace them when they get too worn out.


 This table which brings in the industrial element with it’s zinc top was from Marburger Farm Antique Show in Round Top.


Look how beautiful the master bedroom came out!! The homeowner’s only real request was for her bed and bathroom to feel like her favorite beach resort in Costa Rica. There is that headboard look again that I love.  The beautiful side tables, bed and ottoman were all made by Randall Edwards.  The mercury glass vases from Judith McClellan were made into lamps by Alcon Lightcraft.  Their scale is just wonderful.  Longoria Collection bedding is always soft and luxurious.



This combination of unique and individual items really works and shows Beverly’s knack for accessorizing to complement and complete the look of the room!! The side tables next to the couch are actual beehives that Randall Edwards has made into tables!! The lamps are alabaster and made by Eddie at Alcon. The Shell adds that island charm and was a find from Carolyn Thompson Antiques.   The pillows from Boxwood tie the bedroom and bathroom colors together and give the room the splash it needs!!


A picture of a traditional bathroom with bright walls was the inspiration for the room.  Mary Malik from Materials Marketing, an absolute genius with tile, helped lay out the bathroom tile as well as for the rest of the house.  We finished the ceiling which helped transform the space into that beach retreat. Starting with a thinned down primer to take the red out of the wood, a series of stains were applied, then sanded it back for a worn effect.  

The bits of color in the tile really bring in the blue from the walls and give the space a resort feel. The glass tiles in the shower are marvelous!!

Where does Beverly find these things?  The antique etching seems to be made for the chair.


The furniture in the boy’s bedroom and sitting room is all custom made by Randall Edward. The headboard fabric is from Robert Allen. Because of the time frame for ordering fabrics and the home deadline, many of the fabrics were from Glick Textiles, Interior Fabrics, and High Fashion Home where you can buy it immediately off the bolts–no waiting necessary.



Painting the trim a darker color can give a more finished, unexpected look in a bathroom.  Benjamin Moore’s Gun Metal paint was used in the boy’s bath and really complements the tile well.


This little lady is an artist so the walls were left bare to diplay all of her masterpieces!! I really like the shades in the room and how their pattern gives interest next to the clean bedding.


Daughter number two’s draperies are from High Fashion Home. I love the splash of orange. Bulletin boards are greet way to keep things organized in a room—it the cork color doesn’t go in a room, it can always be painted on or covered with fabric.

The pop of orange here is tied in from the old table Beverly found!!


This settee that was in the daughter’s room before comes alive with the lovely pillows from Boxwood.

Another beautiful tile selection from Materials Marketing in this bath.  Wouldn’t you just love to come home with your bath counters arranged and towels displayed in baskets?


The upstairs game room is so eye-catching with the iron fence from Heights Antiques on Yale hung over the couch, the quirky lamps from Interiors on Dunlavy, and the basket side tables from Judith McClellan! Then there’s that great pop of color again with the orange pillows — this ties the look together so well. The neat coffee table comes from MAI Consigned.


I couldn’t show this house without showing the fans on the back porch. These are from the Big Ass Fan Company.  The homeowners first saw these fans in an airport–they work great and are made right here in Texas.  Hope you enjoyed this home and appreciate how the decisions were made perfectly and put together so quickly to create someone’s forever home!!  Hats off to the Rudy Colby, the building designer, and Stefano Costantini, the builder and Beverly Shaeffer, the designer, that pulled it all together. I was certainly honored to be a part of the team!!  Hope you have a great week!!  I am moving my baby girl to LSU this week and will be a true empty nester!!  Yikes!!
