SOUTHERN CHARM
Brickmoon Design modeled the exterior of this Garden Oaks manor after the 19th-century homes found in New Orleans’ historic Garden District. Though brought to life by David Gordon and Whitestone Builders, the clean lines, double island, and 48-inch stainless steel range from Bertazzoni in the kitchen — featured in our June 2017 issue — were nothing but modern.

CAPE CODE-INSPIRED LAKE HOUSE
Outside, this Cape Cod-style custom contemporary lake house from Showcase Builders boasted a two-story boat dock, pavilion, and outdoor shower. But inside was the 2014 winner of Hill Country Parade Home Tour's Best Kitchen, with its farmhouse sink, granite countertops, and beautiful backsplash tile from Pratt and Larson Ceramics gracing our June 2016 cover.

REFRESHING A CLASSIC
Our July 2017 issue highlighted the formal dining room of a Southern Colonial in River Oaks, where designer Marie Flanigan enlisted Gracie Studios to hand-paint the wallpaper to match the Chinese-influenced pattern found in the homeowners’ Herend “Queen Victoria” wedding china.

TRASH TO TREASURE IN GLENBROOK
Restored with the help of Sanchez Construction & Tile, the past can still be seen in the sunken living room, walnut kitchen cabinets, and intercoms of this Glenbrook Valley home, a cover story in our January 2013 issue. The boomerang-shaped house, with floor-to-ceiling windows spanning the entire rear face, was one of six original model homes built in 1954.

SUBLIME STYLE
Architect Reagan Miller, AIA, who died in a tragic plane crash earlier this year, used European styling, French influences, and a focus on the Bretagne region for this project featured in our September 2010 issue. For the interiors, Linda Eyles blended the homeowner’s antique Oriental rugs with casual, yet complementary, pieces. The seats of two scroll-back chairs were recovered in antique blue velvet in the family room of this Tanglewood home. Photo by Kennon Evett

SOUTHERN HARMONY

The detached pavilion, located on 140 acres in Colorado County, is adorned with a 23-foot hand-glazed ceramic tile mural created by local Houston artist Dixie Friend Gay and Montreal-based mosaic company Mosaika.  Photo by Paul Hester

THE LAP OF LUXURY
Our March 2014 issue dove into the results of a recent Master Pools Guild Builder Survey, with the revelation that fire features — ranging from traditional grills and brick ovens to fire tables and fire pits — were a top trend in pool and spa design. The team of Jason Camenzuli and Peter Collings of CLP Architecture wanted to design a modern floating pavilion for the Portsea Private Pool Pavilion project. They selected the EcoSmart XL900 ethanol burner for the fire feature, running the same length of the pool; a dramatic solution that was reflected in the water. Based in Australia, the project was built by KLE Building, with joinery by Krueger Shopfitters. Photo by Architect Jason Camenzuli, CLP Architecture

POWER PLAY
In our June 2019 issue, we took a look at going green when it comes to sustainable architecture, rainwater harvesting and solar energy, with a spotlight on Houston’s first LEED Platinum House. Designed by Adams Architects — Joseph Houston Adams, A.I.A. and Gail Hood Adams — the residence has become a net exporter of electricity with 140 panels of photovoltaic solar arrays. The kitchen features bamboo cabinetry and floors, low voltage lighting, and paper composite counters. Photo by Gary Zvonkovic
