Creating a Modern Texas Home

Some aspects of interior design trends are relatively universal. Grey walls, white kitchens, tiled backsplashes and hardwood floors have been so stylish for the past decade they have almost become the standard for a modern home. That being said, what homebuyers are gravitating towards in NYC may differ from what is popular is Alabama or Texas and definitely vary from a home in Alaska or Hawaii. Here in College Station, top interior designers agree on these fundamentals. When it comes time to start updating your own space—to reimagine your own Texas dream home—start here.

Carefully Edit

We like to believe that less is more when it comes to modern design. Traditionally, designs in Texas are overflowing with décor: hides, horns and deer heads. You get the picture. Careful editing of your space can make a dramatic impact on the overall feel of the home. Natural elements are great! But focus on simplicity and one or two star pieces. Don’t let your home become a cliché of all things Texas.

Modern + Country

We all love great country elements of home design. But they don’t have to be so literal. The modern country vibe should feature less mahogany and leather and have more white walls and warm neutrals. Creams, pale pinks, matte finishes, and materials like quartz and concrete are all making their way into home design lately.

Let the Outside In

Turn your favorite common area into an indoor/outdoor entertaining space. Being blessed with over 200 days a year of warm weather here in Texas, we should take advantage of all the sunshine! The addition of a modern window wall is the perfect way to blend your indoor space with the great outdoors. Consider installing frameless, folding glass doors for seamless views of nature.
