*********


Way back in 2015, I wrote a story about Lucas Eilers, a Houston interior design firm, HERE.   The story was filled with houses designed by the two principals, Sandra Lucas and Sarah Eilers –  their portfolio was filled with beautiful homes and wonderful designs.

 

Sarah Eilers and Sandy Lucas, friends since college – they have worked together since then!!!  

And so, when I heard Lucas & Eilers had written a design book, I was excited to see what the duo had been up to these past five years.

In a word?

BUSY!!

                     

Titled “Expressive Interiors  - Designing an Inviting Home”           


It’s a wonderful book highlighting all the new work of Lucas & Eilers.  Wow! They really have been busy! 

The book is filled with page after page (a total of 250) of beautiful images.  While the cover is a bit contemporary, the work inside includes classic Houston looks, plus a house in Park City, Utah, a Texas ranch, a high rise penthouse, and a beach house!

The book is divided into two sections – one shows various rooms, while the second shows complete houses.   A bonus section is the two authors’ own houses. 

What did I love?   Personally I loved all the various wall treatments that were used:  hand painted murals and wallpapers to name two.   One favorite is a mural type wallpaper by Barry Dixon for Vervain.  It’s STUNNING!!!!!!!!!

Unfortunately I don’t have a photo of that page so you’ll have to buy the book to see how they used Dixon’s paper!

But, I do have images of other favorite designs from the book:

Designed for a young family.   I LOVE the bright green paint against the blue and white transferware.  Love it!!!!!!


The book is filled with beautiful dining rooms.  This chandelier is so pretty and one of my favorite types –  a gilt wooden candlestick and macaroni beads with icicle crystals. 


This dining room shows a handpainted mural of Hermann Park where the owners walk their dog every day.  Such a wonderful idea for a mural!!


I love the blue cabinets, created by Segreto Finishes – and the backsplash tiles under the stove’s hood.


I love this bedroom with its French vibes – of course!!


But, when it was all said and done – this was my absolute favorite image in the book!   The antique canopy is simply gorgeous.  Will we ever tire of sunburst mirrors?  NOOOOOOO!!!!  Never!!!!


To order the book, just click on the photo above!!!

To Lucas & Eilers, thank you for your generosity and support!!!

    1. I completely trusted Dr Jumba from the time I spoke with him during the period my husband Left me after 1year and 3months of our marriage, Dr Jumba helped me Cast the spell work on my Relationship and gave me so much assurance and guaranteed me that he was going to bring my husband back to Me in just 15hours of the spell casting. I was so confident in his work because I have read A Lot of Testimonies online & Also for the Fact he Helped a Friend of mine Some weeks Back to get her Man Back. My faith was so strong About everything and just as Dr Jumba said to me in the beginning, my husband came back to me Asking for my Forgiveness And Also wants us to have A Happy Home together, YES MY HUSBAND IS BACK with all his hearts, Love, care, emotions and flowers and things are better now. Thankyou So much Papa, you cleared my Doubts about magic or Spells and You Also Brought Life and Happiness to me .. I would have no hesitation to recommend this powerful spell caster to anybody who is in need of help..

  7. These are nice rooms. I just got the weekend WSJ with a glossy real estate magazine enclosed. Every place looked EXACTLY the same and, of course, empty. But not just not-lived-in. Without character or soul. Maybe just because it is blank-slate house listings.

  11. Joni, Sarah and I were so honored when you featured Lucas/Eilers on your blog a few years ago. Thank you for your kind words about "Expressive Interiors". We had a lot of fun writing it. Before COVID, when we would travel the first thing people would ask when they learned we were from Texas was...Do you know Joni Webb? People from coast to coast love "Cote de Texas". We are your biggest fans! Sandy

  18. I’ve been surfing online greater than 2 hours
    lately, yet I never found any fascinating article like yours.
    It is pretty value sufficient for me. In my view, if all website
    owners and bloggers made good content as you probably did, the web might be much more useful than ever before.
