North Blvd

Marrying traditional with modern, NORTH BLVD blurs the line between interior and exterior.

The stucco and painted brick dwelling emits a distinctly modern vibe with mahogany accents defined by ample balconies, terraces and open-air breezeways.  Yet, the gabled roofline allows it to mingle well with the more traditional neighboring residences that line this live oak flanked historic Houston promenade.

The home brings to life the indoor-outdoor connection while keeping the heat and humidity in mind.  A rooftop terrace faces the swimming pool, and a retractable door system near the breakfast room banquette collapses into the wall creating a continuous space with the covered poolside porch- where a swing with upholstered cushions is the perfect spot for a nap.

Appliances are concealed behind custom cabinetry accented by a glazed clay-brick backsplash and a clean-lined plaster hood.  By contrast, wenge wood covers the base of the kitchen island, which features an elevated dining portion for extra seating that was constructed using four reclaimed hickory beams.
