Bellaire, known as the “City of Homes”, is a smaller highly residential city in the midst of the greater Houston metropolitan area. A couple, who have been Bellaire residents since 1985, worked closely with the Marie Flanigan Interiors design team to create spaces that are soothing, serene, and liveable; the perfect environment for their family to comfortably relax and entertain in style. The entire transformation, which included the master suite, kitchen, cloakroom, hallway, dining room, and living room, took just over 6 months to complete.
This home invites guests to slow down and unwind. It’s a unique hideaway in the heart of Bellaire with a funky flair that makes a lasting impression on anyone who drops in for a visit.
There’s oodles of texture oozing out of every corner, from the patterned rugs, worn leather and aged wood, to the embroidered cushions and wood detailing on mirrors, cabinets and the sideboard.
But the real show-stopper is the woven, textured chandelier that comes down from the double-height pitched ceiling.
A grasscloth wallpaper, farmhouse dining table and upholstered dining chairs create a traditional setting that’s interrupted by the statement pendant. The bubble chandelier not only centres and grounds the dining table, but adds cool modern funk too.

The dining room connects to the kitchen through a large, open wall with a breakfast bar peninsula.
Cooking is one of the couple’s favourite shared hobbies so the kitchen underwent a sensational transformation. Walls were torn down to open up the space to the dining room and living room, and materials were carefully selected to ensure that the kitchen would be both stunning and functional.

Soapstone and marble grace the countertops, handsomely adorning newly-installed custom cabinetry, while Urban Electric pendant lights hang over the expansive island, lending both illumination and style to the work space.
There’s also a breakfast nook with a hammered metal table and modern, leather dining chairs.
A foxed mirror and rustic, hammered stone sink lend a seriously cool touch to this dark cloakroom space. We also love how the tap is wall-mounted through the mirror.

Collectively, the design elements create an extraordinary haven. The master bathroom was taken down to the studs in order to create a serene environment.
It’s another sumptuously textured space, with a buttoned velvet upholstered headboard, an intricately carved bench upholstered in soft leather, and wood block side tables.
The grasscloth wallpaper also adds bags of texture.
