Timeless European Country House Tour: White Done Right

Let’s revisit a house tour of a beautiful home on the market built in 2008 (Southampton Homes) and located in Houston’s Museum District. Oh, my, are you ready to move in…because I could begin enjoying these sunny interiors as well as the European-style private courtyard.

In case you fancy a stunning white kitchen and white marble bathrooms…et boum! (Learned that from Taste of France the other day, doncha know.). And also do not miss the living room’s 18th-century fireplace mantel from France.

Timeless European Country House Tour With Inspiring Mix of White as well as Antiques.

But first, don’t miss this fantasy tour closer to my neck of the woods first!

Tour Alison Victoria’s French Home

If you have watched Windy City Rehab, then you have seen designer Alison Victoria in action as an amazing hands-on renovator in Chicago. Wait until you see her elegant Parisian inspired home (notice the art by Francine Turk and her go-to home fragrance which you can only find at a hotel in Paris at which I just happened to be a guest).

Beautiful White Living & Dining Room…breathtaking indeed!

    I would most definitely move right in! 🙂 I love white home interiors and the lovely European style of this one suits me to a “T”.

    Our house is on the market right now and I have lots of white in our home too…though its nowhere near as grand as the one you’ve featured. Several people who’ve viewed our home have responded to the realtor with comments such as “I couldn’t live in all this white!” or “It would be OK if it wasn’t so white!”

    For those of us who adore white homes, it’s hard to imagine someone else being put off by them. But what’s even harder to accept is that if the “home’s right but not the color”, why can’t they just buy it and paint their own colors? 😉

    Ah well…some day, some one will see our home for it’s “bones” and make it their own in whatever colors they choose 🙂

      This home just makes me swoon. Hope your lovely home is soon appreciated and loved by someone sensible. I am always stunned when I watch House Hunters on TV and hear so many complaints about paint color…the easiest design element to change! And I wonder if folks simply do not take into account how painting over white is like the easiest prospect vs. painting over a dark color which requires so much more labor? I hope you will not have to re-stage the home to sell it, but we have been down that road before and know it is sometimes necessary to make the sale. I remember when a beautiful custom ranch we were selling went on the market, and a buyer came to see it because she liked the Carl Larsson art in the kitchen! We’ll never know the psychological dynamics happening beneath the surface. Even the vibe of family photos will influence a potential buyer!

        The first thing I do when moving into a new home is paint the walls a neutral color. My daughter likes brighter colors on her walls. I’ve never had a problem selling a house but my daughter’s languished on the market for months until a new realtor advised her to paint her walls in a soft white, and stage it. It then sold in days. Many people don’t see past the color on the walls. I hope a lover of all things white comes by soon, Ann.

    Allison Victoria is a very talented designer and I love her show. So fun to get a peek inside her lovely home. I recently enjoyed the show she was on where she competed with 3 other HGTV designers to Rock the Block here in California. One day I’ll be following in her footsteps and designing a home for my Chicago dwelling son, so I pay particular attention to her show to see Chicago real estate. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving.

      How cool! I haven’t watched that series yet, and I’m so happy she represents Chicago. I’d love to tour her home in person after seeing this video! Happy Thanksgiving, Celia.

    I want to move into Alison’s home. Drooling here! It’s a lovely mix of old but in no way feels stuffy. The furniture looks comfy and the light streams into the rooms keeping it light. I love the dining room chandelier & chairs, the gorgeous antique mantel in the living room, the brass hood and marble in the kitchen…I could go on and on. In love over here!

      I knowwwwww. I’m hoping to meet her one of these days at a design event in Chicago (she works with a local design firm on custom range hoods like the beauty in her kitchen) – then maybe I can beg for a tour in person. 🙂
