FROM 1970’S REJECT TO TIMELESS GEM
- A LUXURY RESIDENTIAL INTERIOR DESIGN MAKEOVER -
Walking into this Four Leaf Towers Condominium and Houston residence for the first time was a bit overwhelming. This diamond in the rough was covered in 70’s style floral wallpaper with curtains to match, dated decor, and old carpet for days - This space needed a major face lift. Moving away from floral prints and the pastel color pallet, the Montgomery Roth Team knew this place needed a fresh clean feel to turn this home into a timeless design. This stunning residential interior design before and after show that with some TLC and a drastic transformation - A true gem can be created!
First things first, the planning process:
The planning stage is the most important part of the design process. This is when the design team gets a better understanding of the vision and style the clients are trying to achieve in their home. To produce a client’s dream design, the team needed to sit down to go over different materials, styles, furnishings, and finishes to help narrow down their vision. When we came to a better understanding of the direction the design needed to go, various design presentations were put together to express the final design plan. Once the presentations had been approved by the clients and they loved every detail, we were off to put the plan in action.
Everything must go: Demo
After coming up with an extensive design plan, the first thing to kick the project off was to do a complete demo. Everything from removing the old personal effects, ripping up flooring, to removing whole walls - Nothing was left untouched. Stripping this condo to its studs was a necessity to create a functional flow and perfect space for entertaining. After several days of tearing out, knocking down, and cleaning out, the demolition process concluded, and the team was able to start the hard work of updating the space.
The build out:
Once all the dated décor and features were removed from the condo, the construction could begin. To turn this condo into a modern functional living space, things desperately needed to be reconfigured. Going off the new design, everything from sheet rocking, laying wood flooring, tiling bathrooms, and constructing custom built-ins throughout - the construction crew had a lot to accomplish. Starting in the kitchen - Floor to ceiling cabinetry and hide-a-way appliances were installed to make the best of the galley way style space and provide ample storage. A stunning full limestone breakfast table becomes a divider for the living room as well as, the kitchen creating a great area to enjoy quick meals. Moving into the living room, built-in cabinets were installed under the window to not only offer more hidden storage but create a place to display plants and unique décor items or art. No renovation worth its’ salt would be complete without a spa-like bathrooms. The primary bathroom features a gorgeous glass walk-in shower with multiple shower heads and jets, a separate huge soaker tub, and a floating double sink vanity. After the rest of the condo build out was completed, the crew put their last efforts into the primary bedroom closet. Incorporating custom shelving and rack systems to neatly organize various article of clothing, the closet got the organizational makeover of anyone’s dreams! After weeks and weeks of hard work, the construction finally finished, and it was time to move on to make the condo feel more like a home.
Furnishings, fixtures, and so much more:
When the construction portion of the project had subsided, it was time for the finishes and final details of the design to begin. To show off the client’s style and personality, a mix of modern and transitional luxury furnishings were implemented with pops of warm colored details throughout. Playing off the colors in the limestone breakfast table, a cool grey and neutral color pallet was chosen for the furnishings to achieve the clean modern aesthetic. To soften the harshness of all the greys and neutrals, vibrant accent pieces like fruits, vegetables, flowers, and moss balls were incorporated along with colorful art and a set of blue dining chairs to liven up the space. Adding these touches of color heightened the energy of the home while keeping the modern aesthetic intact and allowing for more personality to shine through. While the rest of the house was designed to feel light and airy the guest bath got a complete glam makeover. With black and grey wall coverings, marble flooring, and an intriguing light fixture, the bathroom was the epitome of chic.
By the end of the renovation, the once stuck in the 70’s condo was totally unrecognizable. The Montgomery Roth Team transformed the space into a luxurious residential interior of timeless design that not only was stunning but functional as well. To make the best out of every square inch, they incorporated innovative techniques and methods to help the family thrive in their new home.
