Inspirations From Houston Limestone Chateau – Architectural Digest August 2013
This month’s Architectural Digest is a gem and here is a glimpse of a few of my favorites from a fabulous restoration of a 1930’s Louis XV style manor which was originally designed by John F. Staub who worked mainly in Houston from 1920s to 60s. The renovation was completed by Newberry Campa Architects and the interior design was done by Kara Childress.
Love the ornamentation and pilasters in this dining room. I am sure the pilasters are marble, but this look of the pilasters connecting with the marble below the chair rail is a great idea for a faux project. The companion panel paintings are wonderful.
Use this Decorator Supply ornament with picture molding below to create the look of the crown.

Focusing on great doors, windows and entries add so much character. Love the shape of this entry. Particularly as it continues the symmetry of the wall panel design. The embroidered silk on the ottoman is perfect.
Another beautiful paneled room incorporating the windows and mirrored panels.
