TANGLEWOOD RESIDENCE


Location: HOUSTON, TX

Involved from the ground up, MJS Interiors goal was to exceed the client’s challenge to meld modern French décor with old Hollywood glamour.  Elevated finishes and intricate details can be found throughout the home.

“A very dramatic, modern French-Inspired statement was achieved.”


The Results


The color palette for the home is white, grays, silver, platinum, and black. We started with the over-scaled black and white checkerboard floor in the Entry and Gallery to pay homage to historic French architecture, and also introduced a powerful modern graphic. A very dramatic, modern French-Inspired statement was achieved. For the hardwood floors, we chose a wide plank oak and finished it in an unconventional silvery driftwood stain that complimented our wall colors and added a unique touch. We utilized dark paneled walls in the Entry, Living Room, and Dining Room to add a layered richness in these areas. In addition to painted walls, we interjected graphic wallpapers, textured grass cloths and fabric upholstered walls in key places. We custom designed sleek fireplace mantles in three rooms to continue our modern theme. The kitchen is a true showcase in bright white, stainless steel and Italian Carrera marble that satisfies our discriminating client who loves to cook. The client also wanted to evoke old Hollywood glamour, while maintaining functionality for a busy life that includes four children.
For the furnishings, we chose timeless contemporary pieces in soft neutral grays and charcoals, and offset those with bright colors in each room. The fabrics are layered in a variety of interesting textures and patterns. Tables are in mixed finishes of painted wood, chrome, glass, marbles and lacquers to create interest. We also introduced hi-gloss black doors in certain areas for a dramatic entrance to important rooms. Custom area rugs and carpets were designed for the various rooms to complete the vision. Modern drapery softens the architecture and specialty lighting was carefully selected to enhance the mood. The client’s passion for art was given special attention and artwork was highlighted throughout the home. We listened thoughtfully to the homeowner’s ideas and are thrilled with the results achieved for this very special project. With its custom furniture, alluring colors and exquisite details, this home intrigues at every turn.
