Video Home Tours | Traditional Interior Design

Our goal is to not only create a beautiful space customized to your lifestyle, but also to make the big transitions in your life a little easier. These homeowners were moving from a townhouse to a more traditional home in the suburbs. They asked us to help make their move as seamless as possible. Creating a space that they could call home immediately was the task we were able to successfully tackle. We made sure to incorporate custom and unique elements, like the stunning chandelier in the dining room, to redefine the traditional.

If you are not sure where to begin with an interior design project, do not hesitate to contact us. We have 30 minute free consultations every 4th Friday of the month, called free design Fridays, or you can schedule an appointment for more help. Follow the links for more information.

Transitional Remodel: Before and After

Our designers waged a full fledged war on this recent transitional remodel. The master bath was completed gutted and reconstructed. As you will see below, the results are quite astonishing. It is amazing how much you can do with the space you already own – sometimes it just means having a broader vision, a little patience and some remodeling muscle! We hope you enjoy this transitional transformation as much as we and our homeowners have. If you are considering an interior update, it is always best to speak with one of our designers. Seeking professional advice can make all the difference in making or breaking your time and budget.

Take a look at the before and after photos of this remodel. The improved and modernized master bath flaunts an Aquatica Purescape freestanding tub. The tile from LaNova reflects crisp whites and cool grays to contrast the dark wood cabinets and framed mirrored closets. Most importantly, our homeowners were happy!

Custom Interior Design from Accessories to Art

When we say custom, we mean custom!  The best part about being a designer is meeting with each of you.  Seeing what you see and learning what you like inspires our creativity.  It’s a fascinating realization that there are no two people the same.  We would fail miserably as designers if we tried to do the same thing for every home.  This is exactly why we are so concerned with providing each individual with a custom experience and a custom design, as unique as your own signature!

To prove how serious we are about designing a unique and one-of-a-kind space, we want to share with you a project that our very own designer, Stephanie Vaughan (who is amazing, BTW), recently finished.  If you’ve read her “about me” on our blog, you know how much artistry and creativity she brings to our design group.  Recently, she was asked by a client of ours to create a custom art piece of her wire and glass work.  Her sweat and blood went into this project, literally – that’s how far we’ll go for you!

Taken from her blog, here is the production of the custom art from start to finish. If you see or talk to Stephanie, let her know how awesome she is!

_________________________________________________________

For the first time in a very long time (over 10 years), I have been asked to create a commission of my wire and glass work.  At first I was in such disbelief, it took a while to really sink in.  Once it started becoming real to me, it became very challenging and finally very rewarding as I got to the end.  Here is the process as it went along.

[nggallery id=13]

To begin the installation process of this 6′ glass laden circle in the Heights loft, I contacted an art installation specialist, Devon Moore of DCM Art Services. After some communications and planning, we decided it would be best for me to handle the transport and he and his crew would handle the installation. Once this was decided, I reverted back to my old tried and true method of transporting this type of precarious artwork by laying it in a pool of packing peanuts in the back of our box truck. Our logistics guru at Eklektik Interiors, Hugo, assisted me in picking it up from my house/studio and delivering it safe and sound to the loft. WHEW – that was a HUGE relief! Hugo you are the bomb!

[nggallery id=14]

The next day I met Anna Light (my co-worker and the designer for the Zannoni’s home) and Devon from DCM at the loft to start installation.  Even though I was confident in DCM and their ability to get the job done professionally, I was still nervous about the install.  Unfortunately, when I started painting the horizontal lines on the front of the canvas, I went off balance from the bracer bars in the back.  So, the hardware had to be installed diagonally on the back in order for the piece to hang level on the front.  Big lesson learned of how important it is to work out the hanging mechanics BEFORE starting the painting or glass.  The guys did an amazing job and our clients were very happy with the final result, which now hangs in their loft.  I am truly grateful for having the chance to create this piece of art for two adorable art lovers.  This whole experience has been surreal and I can’t wait for me next one.

We understand that coming to the decision of whether or not to use an interior designer can be complicated and stressful. That is why we strive for transparency in our designer-homeowner relationships. Clarity, especially in communication, is key to your home happiness. It is important to feel comfortable with and to know your designer!

To get to know us better, we’re hoping you’ll take a look at our home video tours. An idea or two may even spark for your own dream interiors.

Kathy shares all of the details in one of our completed interior projects in the Woodlands, TX.

This particular homeowner came to us at Eklektik Interiors looking for some bling! We envisioned a glamorous, yet sophisticated, look and brought that to life through warm colors and rich textures. Our most dramatic element of this project is obviously the gold leafing in the entryway – a sure way to wow guests. The end result of this design was a happy homeowner. If you’re happy, we’re happy!

Contact us today to just talk about plans you have for your home. We want you to be prepared and educated, so don’t be shy to ask us your questions. Call today!

I attended school close to home at Lamar University.  I received two bachelor degrees; one in Interior Design and the other in Graphic Design.  I graduated in 2007 and immediately went to work in the interior design field.  I have worked at several design firms, but I have been at Eklektik Interiors since the fall of 2010.

James and I have been married for three years on October 23, and there has not been a dull moment yet.  He works as a tankerman on a tug boat, and I am an interior designer at Eklektik Interiors.  He is gone for 20 days and home for 10 days.  When he is home we usually go boat riding, swimming or fishing on Lake Conroe.  We also hang out with friends and play cards, too.  James never meets a stranger so I am always meeting “new friends”.

We just moved into our house this summer.  I drew up a floor plan, and James built it.  The outside is complete as you can tell from the picture, but the inside is a different story.  We have one fully functional bathroom, complete bedroom, office and a halfway completed guest bedroom.  I have a temporary kitchen set up for now, but we will eventually get cabinets and new appliances.  James keeps asking where is the real silverware (technically it is in storage).  I told him, “When we get a real kitchen you can have real silverware”.  Until then, it is paper plates and plastic forks.

James and I have different taste in styles.  He loves traditional…the more carved wood the better.  I like more transitional, clean lines, and unique pieces.  But we both love the color blue as you can tell from the outside of the house.  The inside of the house is neutral with pops of blue.

Through the years, I have worked on many different styles.  We have been working on a lot of transitional projectsnot too heavy and cleaner lines.  I have been working on several remodel projects that are transitional, and there is never a dull moment because you never know what is behind the sheetrock.  Daniel and I usually are working together on the remodels. He has called me to come and look at what he found during demo…interesting to say the least.

Kathy and I recently won several awards in the Ferguson Design Competition for a kitchen remodel that we completed in the Houston Memorial area.  We actually remodeled the entire house (kitchen, master bathroom, master closet, powder room and secondary bathrooms), including paint and new flooring.  The master bathroom result was also fabulous!  It always feels good to help our clients see their imagination become a reality.
