We’re revisiting a gloriously meditative Houston home today. You may recognize the stunning 1923 William Ward Watkin stucco manse in Houston’s Broadacres from a Veranda cover a few years back. Or perhaps you glimpsed it all over the Pinterest stratosphere. This house appeared on my radar when its guesthouse graced Milieu. I fell hopelessly in love with the architecture (Reagan Andre) and interiors (Pamela Pierce). Her work is my favorite for obvious reasons. Pamela Pierce Interior Design Inspiration is not unlike a treasured piece of classical music…timeless, tranquil, and always softly obscuring the line between earth and heaven.

Beautiful Montrose House Exterior
Modern lines and a restrained color palette let you know this will be something out of the ordinary!
And how’s this for an entrance:
Such an exquisite landscape design.
My favorite part of the house is not even the main house! It’s this:
Guest House by Reagan Andre Architecture
This is my all time favorite architecture and house exterior EVER. I have always wanted to live inside this photo:
And I need not be invited inside…I’m happy to simply admire the reclaimed materials fashioned into a new masterpiece.
On the backside of the guest house is…
a lovely pool.
Rear Side of Guest House
Just look at outdoor entertaining area!
Can you imagine hosting friends and family here?
Pamela Pierce Designed Kitchen
Timeless design involves so much thought and care, and you’ll instantly recognize the quality and craftsmanship in this kitchen.
Aren’t the old doors concealing storage incredible?
And can you imagine reclaimed stone gathered from Europe underfoot?
I have a similar old dining table like this, and I am imagining how it might look were I to remove the dark brown stain it currently wears…
Because a lightened up version might give it new life!
There is just something irresistible about scrubbed wood and letting the age show!
I have never lived with a pot rack, but if I had this collection above…
Pamela Pierce Designed Living Room
When Francophiles dream of heaven, I think it may look something like this:
Isn’t it sumptuous with its paneled walls, herringbone floors, and stone fireplace?
Redecorated Living Room
I love this version too!
And can you even get over the playful scale of objects on the mantel?
Morning Room Designed by Pamela Pierce
I would never tire of being in this room!
Hall & Family Room
There is a monastic feel that I adore in these spaces.
Real working shutters…imagine that!
Staircase in Houston Home by Reagan Andre Architecture
Look at these plaster steps with the refined loveliness of the iron handrail! I could stare all day.
The lantern and the door trim have me swooning.

Framed Botanical Art in Hall
Pamela Pierce’s own Houston kitchen also never ceases to satisfy…
Are the stone floors (Chateau Domingue) also stealing your breath away!?! See this story touring Chateau Domingue’s proprietor Ruth Gay’s stunning home too!
Don’t miss this renovation of a French chateau!
If you are in the mood for more timeless design – make sure you don’t miss THIS!
p.s. Ever imagine the little fairy behind this blog leading a glamorous life resembling images above? Because when I posted this a year ago, the day’s agenda included power-washing the white exterior of a neglected tiny house we had just purchased and schlepping for FB Marketplace scores for the interiors. A year later, here I am painting a console table I may use in the entry of the new house and stalking FB Marketplace again! It is never boring here!

Thanks for the treat today Michele! Pamela’s rooms are so perfectly edited and put together in such a way that it seems effortless! I love the exteriors of these homes also with unfussy landscaping and gravel walkways. Hope you have a beautiful weekend!
Thanks so much for reading, Holly. Her work inspires me so much. 🙂
You beat old furniture pieces with authentic patina to add that just right touch to a home like in the above pictures! I scored @ an estate sale …finding a small chippy brown painted handmade desk with lots of little cubby holes and a rustic green handmade cupboard with old screened doors that have holes in the screen! The seller knew the man who had made both pieces! I love these two treasures and the green cupboard in the kitchen gets THE most compliments. The desk fits perfectly between the fridge & the door out to the covered porch. I had been wanting a couple pieces like this…Only paid $87.50 for each! I was just running errands and passed the estate sale sign & decided to turn around & go back to follow the sign …so thankful I did!
Those are incredible finds! How incredible that it works in a place that makes sense for your lifestyle. It’s so gratifying to live with quality made things. I am bargain hunting daily now as I try to pull the new place together. Wait until you see the chandelier which may go in the breakfast nook. It’s a piece of art. Definitely one of my best finds ever. The hard part is when you love a rustic look as I do, yet your home’s architecture demands more refined, classic lines. This biz is definitely not for the timid! What I am trying to do is simply stay true to myself and Frenchy sensibilities. The house tells me what it wants, and I listen, but I am also interested in a mix even if it is a bit provocative and quirky. There are so many snarky bloggers out there who rattle off a laundry list of rules, and I’d rather be a rule breaker. Like Leanne Ford, I really am a believer in imperfect beauty so nicks and age and distress and wobbly are okay with me because they make all things more approachable and usable and alive. Wish we could go treasure hunting together, Amy! 🙂
I’m excited to see your chandelier find!! I’m all about things that are works of art🤗I’m with you (& Leanne) all the way on breaking the rules & having a mix of decor & definitely some quirky mixed in for good measure!! That makes for such a more inviting, interesting, non cookie-cutter environment! Who wants the same look you see EVERYWHERE…not me! I hope we can go treasure hunting together one day!! There’s lots of great places for that down here🤗Looking forward to seeing the progress y’all are making on the new house. But don’t feel pressured…I know it all takes so much time. Enjoy the creative process and teamwork with the hubs!
I am seeing another road trip to the South in my future – so wouldn’t that be lovely to meet!?! I am eager to see the progress we’re making on the house too. Hahahaha. So many headaches and sore backs and even frequent ‘what the h did we even do, honey?’. It’s hard work, but I remember feeling these same things in 2015 in the throes of that fixer project. So I’m sure we will work out the kinks. You try to bring experience and confidence to each new project, but houses are quirky and there are always curveballs. A vacation will do us good, and there’s a chance his schedule will open up in a few weeks so there may be hope!
🙂 *sometimes you do need to beat old furniture pieces to help their patina along
Hahaha! Yes…that’s exactly what I meant! That’s funny! 😆😂
Hello! What a beautiful space! I’m currently working on my powder room and wanted to know if the faucet they have is hot/cold and where they got it? Thank you!
Hi Jan. It looks like a Lefroy Brooks single classic cloakroom basin tap – see this: https://uk.lefroybrooks.com/classic-basin-taps/lbx-1135. From there, you may be able to establish the specs on it. Let me know if this helps. 🙂
Does anyone know if the four floor lamps in the living room are battery powered? I don’t see any cords going to the walls.
Could the outlets be in the floor? I have also been seeing battery operated light bulbs (so no electricity required), but not sure if you can get warm light: https://rstyle.me/+k5N_eZyt09nuKg_boes6Eg
