The River Oaks


The River Oaks living room with Ashley Longshore art and custom furniture

This River Oaks high-rise belongs to a young professional who loves traditional and feminine styles, but also desired a little edge. The home’s floor-to-ceiling windows provide stunning views of Downtown Houston, allowing us to focus each room on the outside landscape. 

We selected sophisticated furnishings, many of which are custom made, and a jewel-toned color palette. We opened up the living and dining rooms to expand the space for entertaining, which our client loves to do. Not wanting to distract from the view, we floated the television in front of the windows and brought in swivel chairs. Upholstered in a fabulous aubergine fabric from Trikes, the chairs allow for generous conversation in all areas of the room. 

The dining room table is custom made, with a walnut base supplied by El Dorado Woodworks and a marble top from Aria Stone Gallery. The metallic touches in this room are softened by delicate champagne-colored accents and warmed by the bar cabinet. Again, floor-to-ceiling windows pour in natural light, accentuating the golden undertones of the room.

Our favorite space is the Master Bedroom, where vibrant cobalt meets aubergine. The sitting area, complete with a curved chair from Caracole and custom-made ottoman takes full advantage of the view and gives a comfortable spot for our client to put on her designer shoes. Her impeccable fashion sense was made truly rewarding, when she walked into her new home for the final reveal and matched the color scheme perfectly.
