A Vibrant Texas Modern
CANTONI DESIGNER CARL RAMON TAKES A CLIENT’S FORMER TRADITIONAL STYLE AND GIVES HER AN ENTIRELY FRESH START.
They also brought in purple Vito barstools for ample seating in the kitchen, and kept things light and bright in the theater room with a lighted coat rack stand and a custom bold red, geometric entertainment unit. The master bedroom, meanwhile, takes on soft green hues, with a custom upholstered bed in sea foam, which is flanked by mirrored nightstands. But the real focus was always on the pool and courtyard, viewable from every room. Outdoor furnishings span playful wicker seating, from the Canneto chaise lounges to the Maui chairs in green.
The two collaborated and sourced all furnishings, accessories, artwork and lighting from Cantoni, and only a few of Karen’s original pieces were kept. “While many people are resistant to change, Karen embraces it,” Carl says. “She has such a great attitude and enthusiasm.”
That enthusiasm is instantly apparent when she talks about her now-finished home. “There isn’t a single person who comes here who doesn’t say, ’your house is so cool,’ Karen says. “Carl is fabulous. He did an incredible job and was wonderful to work with—so easy. He never judged and had nice suggestions. He was always spot-on. I love it all.”
