This beautiful, white stucco house, located in Houston, is featured this month in Luxe Magazine.  Designed by Cote de Texas favorite Ashley Goforth, it was purchased by a couple who were moving down south from New York City.   The six year old house, designed by architect Travis Mattingly, features a central hall with public rooms set off on each side of it.  The couple kept the classic elements found inside:  dark hardwoods and the white Calacutta marble.
 
Bringing only their art collection with them, the couple moved without furniture, leaving it up to Ashley to furnish and accessorize the large house – all within a short seven months.  Since the owners were moving from a cosmopolitan city, she chose a contemporary style for the house, blending in antiques with custom pieces to create a unique and sophisticated environment.
The article features gorgeous photography by Nick Johnson – with even more photos found on the web site HERE. 
 
Enjoy!

The entry reveals Ashley Goforth’s sophisticated scheme with its contemporary light fixture and trendy gilt center table which Ashley designed and topped with modern accessories.  The walls are white with taupe-gray moldings – an element that was original to the house.

Modern lines fill the living room, while traditional urns, silk curtains, and antique candlesticks warm the interior.

The taupe silk curtains pick up the same shade found in the texture rug – which becomes the color scheme for the room, with accents of black.

The dining room is a beautiful mix of new and old – Ashley’s forte!  I love the crystal chandelier mixed with contemporary tufted chairs, table, and faux bois rug mixed with the antique buffet.   The art work sets the color scheme in the room.  Just beautiful!

The library is a study in gray.  Love the art work – a contemporary coin.  All the art work is fabulous – I wish I knew who the artists were to tell you!!   Perhaps they are listed in the magazine, but not on the web site?  I’m sure if you are particularly interested in a piece, call Ashley for the artist’s name.

Love, love, love the family room – a mix of gray pinstripes and camel.  The upholstery is contemporary and is juxtaposed with a rustic wood coffee table and a moderne console.   I love how Ashley mixed all the stripes with the zebra stripes.  This is really a pretty room – with the rafters and French windows and painted gray paneled door.

The classically designed kitchen with white marble and subway tiles. The antique convex mirror is a surprise in gold.

The breakfast room features modern furniture and fabrics – a nice mix to the classic kitchen.  Love the doorknobs.  Notice the bar area is painted dark with dark subway tile – a striking contrast to the white countertops in the kitchen.  I wonder what is on the opposite side of this area – where the light fixture is centered on what looks like an opening?

The guest room is a trademark of Ashley Goforth’s – black walls, white linens, contemporary lines mixed with gilt antiques.

The Yves Klein blue pillows are a perfect choice against the black walls and white linens.



And, another beautiful house from the talented Ashley Goforth.  For more information on Ashley, go HERE.

Congratulations to Ashley on being published in the prestigious Luxe!!!

  3. This house is so beautiful - I can't believe it was decorated in seven months! So many decisions to make! I really like Goforth's work - it's modern while still feeling warm and comfortable.

  4. The rabbit and parrot paintings are Hunt Slonem. You can see one of his spaces in House Beautiful, A cure for the gray's.

  5. This is a beautiful home but definitely too taupey for me. Hunt Slonem is my favorite, so I'm very jealous of those pieces. LOVE LOVING the guest room...was there a reference to the black paint color?
