Nestled in Spring Valley Village, just west of downtown Houston, Mary Patton Design’s (marypattondesign.com) gorgeous newest home project has been finalized. The residential and commercial interior designer worked closely with the clients and made sure to make every single of their dream home wishes come true. While the couple wanted the design to be classic with a modern twist, they still wanted to add some fun colors to the neutral palette. Patton was able to create whimsical spaces, helping design every inch of it.

The inspiration for the project was very family oriented, the muses being the couple and their two boys. “The wife loves black and white, she herself is very glamorous, and the husband is a masculine Texan, with also an appreciation for graffiti art and love of music. They were dream clients because they allowed me to push them outside their comfort zone, while still very much keeping the look of them,” says Patton.
The designer went above and beyond, even creating a hyperfeminine planning center for the wife. This room, located off the kitchen, was carefully curated by Patton down to the very last detail. Painted with Farrow & Ball Calamine pink, unique hardware was added for the cabinets, along with a soft window treatment using a whimsical Pierre Frey fabric and a custom desk chair—a room designed just for her. “We partnered with Carla Valencia, a local artist, to personalize the vintage chair, after reupholstering it in a blue Schumacher velvet,” says Patton.

There’s so much to love about the home’s interiors and aesthetics, but Patton’s favorite space is the dining room—without a doubt. The room is a stunning blend of masculine and feminine, modern and traditional. Using Segreto finishes to paint a silver floral mural and mixing it with Tom Dixon lighting made this place look dreamy, along with plenty of unique vintage pieces to complete the look.
“This was my first project where I helped design every inch of it. They hired me before the old house was torn down, and I was there on install day placing the final accessories,” says Patton. All in all, Mary Patton’s eye for detail, design expertise and ability to work closely with clients are what makes this home so memorable. It’s not only gorgeous, but there was also an abundance of time and dedication put into it.
