Design Trends: Master Bedroom
We recently showed off a few rooms from one of our favorite projects here in the Houston neighborhood of River Oaks. This home was built in the ‘20s by famed Houston architect John Staub. Today’s post is set in the master bedroom, a comfortable, serene retreat, with glam to spare.
As we’ve mentioned before on the blog, we didn’t want to change the bones of this fantastic home (see our post: Inwood Before & After Kitchen Renovation). Our challenge was to modernize it for the 21st century without marring the house’s architectural beauty.
Our clients requested a serene, elegantly-appointed master bedroom. It was to be family-friendly, and updated with latest available technology.
- Beautiful plaster walls and ceilings that needed to be left intact
- Updating the technology to that of a “smart home”
To give you an idea of the space, here is a look at the floorplan.

Every year, Hunter Douglas takes their show on the road with their Premieres events across the country. This past week I attended the Houston event! At their Premieres event, designers are invited to check out the latest product introductions and innovations. The event featured an hour long exclusive training class to learn about the latest Hunter Douglas offerings.
We were introduced to the newest products, fabrics, line updates and upgrades! Hunter Douglas has some great new offerings for Spring 2014 including Duette Architella Trielle Elan, energy efficient honeycomb shades; Silhouette UltraGlide, one-click retractable cord shades; and Vignette LiteRise, modern roman shades with a cordless operating system.
We love the art scene here in Houston! Laura U Interior Design is a proud supporter of DiverseWorks (www.diverseworks.com).
