Designer Brandon Fontenot brings old and new into beautiful harmony in this Houston Apartment. With a neutral palette, organic shapes and antique pieces he made it a cosy and stylish home.
Brandon Fontenot founded his studio in Houston five years ago. With his designs he challenges the classic separation between traditional and modern and tries to balance and bring the two together. His projects are mainly defined by quality, authenticity, depth and functionality. Nature always plays a major role in his interiors, often modest, but elegant and sophisticated.
The richness of the house is mainly created by the mix of vintage furniture with classic, custom made and modern pieces.
Also in this Houston Apartment we see a clear influence of nature and a mix of old and new. The owners wanted a lighter and subdued interior and gave Fontenot carte blanche. The interior was given a neutral palette of colours and materials that creates tranquillity and leaves room for some beautiful, more special decorations and furniture. The designer chose a combination of wood, jute and wool with other rich materials such as brass and marble. The beautiful dining table in limestone and concrete is designed by Fontenot himself. This is beautifully complemented by an abstract work of art by Tycjan Knut. The living space was furnished symmetrically with, among other things, two armchairs from the Dutch Morentz. The richness of the house is mainly created by the mix of vintage furniture with classic, custom made and modern pieces. With a sober palette and interesting mix Fontenot created a strong interior with lots of depth and detail. Elegant and sophisticated and at the same time daring and cosy.
