This Historic Houston Heights Bungalow began as a blank slate and evolved as the family evolved. Top priority was adding back in the character that the 1920’s bungalow would have while also maintaining the style and eclecticism that reflects the homeowners. The thoughtful color palette throughout is a mix of blues and greens.
The main living space caused some initial trouble with how it was laid out. We fixed that by changing the lighting to have matching (1 original and 1 reproduction made to match) crystal pendants at both ends of the space with a fan, because it’s hot Houston, centered over the lounge area. This lighting configuration allows various layouts without defining a specific dining area. Adding the built-ins and crown molding with drapery pocket adds to the architecture but also increases space with added storage and space for the TV.
Adding built-ins to this home increased storage and most importantly added architectural interest that had been previously removed from the home at some point in history. The original flooring was kept in the bathroom remodel and the white subway tile was adding to coordinate with the flooring, in both the bath and the wainscoting.
