The interiors for this residence accented and defined by moments of texture throughout: Fine tactile details, leather wrapped handrails, ebony stained walls and dramatic marble panels create focus and interest.
Flooring in random sized, end cut mesquite grounds the house throughout while changes in pattern serve to subtly delineate and distinguish each room. The entry floor has an inlay pattern of mesquite and walnut that pays homage to the arts and crafts movement from which the overall architecture derives some of its clean lines. The formal living room features mesquite flooring in a unique chevron pattern that contrasts with a modern fireplace designed using ranging sizes and thickness of stained limestone crafted by local artist Berthold Haas.
Further details are layered in to reinforce the subtle elegance of the home. The simple handrail is elegantly wrapped in leather. The powder room is clad in bold geometric wallpaper with a custom black lacquered floating counter.
The spalted pecan cabinetry in the kitchen is truly unique and balances the custom millwork in the informal family room.
