A couple of weeks ago we visited one of the few historic neighborhoods in Houston and were privileged to have a peek inside a friend’s home. Today join me in visiting the beautifully redone carriage house where the owners’ personalities really shine. They love the country, ranch life and hunting, and that is reflected in every inch.
There is so much to like here it’s hard to know where to start. This large open space is a terrific place to chill with family or friends.
The bar is so Texas with beautiful woodwork reminiscent of the stairwell in the main house.
My favorite feature here is the hammered copper sink. It is touches like this that make the carriage house so special.
The second level is dreamy. Either of these bedrooms would suit me fine,
and this one is a young girl’s dream.
The faux fireplace is more than it seems. Give it a little tap and the doors open to what would be a wonderful secret hiding place.
This cheerful space, part of a fully equipped kitchen, looks out to the pool and green space and is a great example of my friend’s attention to detail. Note the floor of antique French tiles, the colors of which are repeated throughout the carriage house.
Another thing I learned about her is that she especially enjoys doing bathrooms which explains their unique features.
Last but not least is the hubby’s study, a true man cave filled with trophies from his hunting adventures.
There is nothing not to like in the carriage house the use of which is a far cry from the original. I think I would be happy spending time here. How about you?
