Old World New Builds: Timeless Home Inspiration

We were all set to travel to Houston to tour the first ever MILIEU Showhouse but the pandemic put a kink in our plans. It is one thing to see impeccable design photos and quite another to experience the spaces in person. When I recently peeked at the real estate market in Houston, I noticed the Showhouse is not the only newly built manse with Old World style. Timeless Home Inspiration: Old World New Builds spotlights exceptionally lovely newly built Houston homes on the market now.

    LOVED this post! So nice to see aspirational rooms/homes that we couldn’t possibly afford but get so many ideas from!

      EXACTLY! That’s just what I was thinking as I perused these listings – the color stories, mix of materials, use of space…so much to note!

    I completely agree with Sandra! I especially love the last house! The use of velvet throughout (especially love the green velvet dining chairs and barstools), the greenery in lovely weathered vessels inside, the open kitchen shelves filled with white and silver, unique art over the fireplaces, the outdoor plants in lovely urns…all so pleasing to the palate! I could look at this for days!

      Me too! I too cannot stop staring at the green velvet – there is something so regal and sophisticated about it. And I would not likely gravitate toward it but when you see it used expertly here…goodness gracious, lovely.
