Because I'm a total real estate stalker and you might be too, I want to show you some homes in one of my favorite areas of Houston, West University Place. The live oak trees canopy over the streets, the homes are beautiful, schools are great, and the home prices are astronomical. But, that doesn't mean we can't peak inside via real estate listings.
One of the reasons I love to look at homes here is because most aren't huge McMansions. The interiors are casual and elegant, which can be translated to our own homes. Palatial-like homes are beautiful to look at, but the architecture is so different that I can't really gain ideas for my own home.
I'm guessing the homeowner is an interior designer by the logo on the chalkboard. If her house is an indication of her work, I'd hire her! The nursery is just absolutely precious.
The next house is elegant and French, but on a livable scale.
Aren't the curtains and chandeliers amazing? I love the casual fabrics paired with the French furniture, which keeps it from being too stuffy. Just perfect!
