The listing agent for this lovely modern home on Morningside in River Oaks – yes, it extends for two blocks behind Carrabba’s on Kirby – enlisted Vernon to renovate the house and give it a fresh, clean look. This modern retreat is completely secluded behind tall walls and layers of shrubs of trees transporting visitors to a world onto themselves. The house had a strong “Southwest” flair with multiple tones of sage and broken tile backsplashes. It needed to be taken from the 90s to 2013. Here is what LBRB accomplished.
Vernon took the strong contmeporary bones and beautiful details such as the antique, carved doors and purple tile fireplace and updated the color scheme throughout with silver walls, white trim and bold black doors. The dated backsplash was replaced with white carrera marble tiles cut into subway tile shap. The kitchen cabinets were painted white and the pendants replaced with elegant glass cubes. In the master bath, the cabinetry was painted the same bold black and the dated lrridescent tiles around the vanity were replaced with white marble and around the jacuzzi with black slate.
The result was a totally transformed space catapulted from 90s “Southwest” to 2013 contemporary. The result: a very fast sale and very happy buyers.
