White Interior Design Ideas: Pamela Pierce French Country Home

With so many beautiful interiors spotlighted on this blog, you may think it would be impossible for this blogger to pick a favorite. Mais non. One exceptionally designed timeless and tranquil home stole my heart years ago, and its loveliness never strays far from my consciousness.

A rustic, refined, and white 1926 stucco manse in the Museum District of Houston is home to Milieu magazine founder, Pamela Pierce, and  was featured in Veranda magazine. Interior designer Pierce told Veranda, “I wanted to show my clients that you can mix good contemporary pieces with antiques…for me an entire house of contemporary is too cold. I love the mix.”

By the way, do you have a subscription to Veranda magazine???? What about Milieu? They are MUST READS, and at the bundle price for Veranda, Martha, & Traditional Home, you’ll pay around $1 per issue and never have to miss a single inspiring French Country moment!

I can’t tell you how many followers of Hello Lovely have emailed over the years asking some version of, “How can I create the look of Pamela Pierce’s interiors in my own home?” or “Where would I begin if I want to emulate the all white decor and ethereal feel of Pamela Pierce’s place?” The truth is, her Houston home has been curated,  designed, and styled with such thoughtfulness and bespoke materials that it would be impossible to nail the look unless you have easy access to 18th-c. cathedral stone, 19th-c. reclaimed chestnut wood flooring, and, oh yes, a magnificent Italianate 1920’s mansion with superb bones. Yet we are too sassy and ambitious, not to try!

Below, you’ll find details regarding many of the furnishings and home decor in this breathtaking home as well as decorating ideas which are not as much copy cat chic (Get real! There’s no copycatting Christian Liaigre white linen slipcovered custom sofas!) as they are bourgeois-friendly options only slightly approaching the light and white spirit of the decor.

    Gorgeous. So much more natural than some places that are “decorated.” This looks like people actually live there…..like a place that might be down the road from me. Very authentic.

    No one does homes like Pamela. She is an icon in Texas .
    Love everything she does, and her magazine is awesome. I didn’t know if it would make it in today’s world and am so happy to see that everyone loves it and buys it. I buy copies for girlfriends all the time. Big hug.
