Looking for Something To Do This Sunday???



It’s been a few years since the last “famous” West University Home Tour.    If you are in the vicinity of Houston this Sunday, I highly recommend you take this tour.  The West U Home Tour has long been one of the best that Houston has to offer and this year promises to further that reputation.

For instance:

Last year, PaperCity Design Awards gave their First Place – Residential Interior Design Use of Small Space honor to Sally Wheat Interiors!!


  The house with Sally’s award winning living room is on the West U Home Tour this weekend!!!!


If you are a long time reader of Cote de Texas then you are also a long time fan of Sally’s, especially her kitchen!!!   This is your chance to tour this award winning home and check out the “graffiti” sofa up close!  It’s incredible!

  At 3769 Garnet.


Also on the West U Home Tour is this house at 3726 Nottingham, designed by Houston great Randy Powers or J. Randall Powers.  It’s not often you get a chance to tour a house by the fabulous Randy, so this is it. 

And no, this fabulous vignette is not from the house on the tour.  BUT, it is from Randy’s farm house outside of Houston.  To die for!!!!  LOVE!!!!  And you thought all Randy did was contemporary!  NOT!!


Long time readers will remember another home tour which I featured HERE with a house designed by Laurie Pearson. 

Laurie’s latest design, seen above, is featured on this West U home tour.  

It’s located at 3408 Albans  - a must see!!



And then there is this house at 5922 Buffalo Speedway designed by the popular Laura U HERE.


3304 Sunset

This house really looks interesting!   On a double lot, it was designed by the Homeowners who spent two weeks in Italy for inspiration.  Every door in this house is a replica of one they saw in Italy.


And More:

6614 Mercer by Allison Cunningham Design HERE.
