Well, if you follow me on facebook (Luxury For The Home) or twitter (@luxuryforthehom), you may know that we are getting ready for the ASID Showrise Project at The Commerce Towers in downtown Houston.  The event benefits the Houston Downtown Alliance and ASID.  This will be our first showcase project and we are very excited.

Based upon our designs for our unit, our space titled, “Modern Sophisticate”.  The unit is a two-bedroom loft with a very urban view.  We are designing the entry/stair/landing and the Kitchen/Breakfast areas.  When we first saw the unit, what struck me the most is the very URBAN view.  But after many trips to New York, where the view is not always the best outside apartments, I felt inspired to create a stunning view inside for this urban home.

I could see a very successful businessman calling this place home.  Which meant that we need very tailored lines, a welcoming space for those pre-evening festivities and the Saturday night poker games.  With that in mind, I’d like to highlight our partners for the unit who have graciously allowed us to use their products as part of the Showrise.

The first partner I want to highlight is Laura Rathe Fine Art on Colquitt (713-527-7700).  I can not say enough positive things about Laura, Kathy & Carol – they are friendly, gracious and very knowledgeable about their art.  If you have never been here and love contemporary art, you owe it to yourself!

That being said, I also wanted to share with you the beautiful art and artists we’ve selected.  Pictures never do the pieces justice, so plan on coming to the show February 13-14th & February 20-21st to see it in person.

Luxury For The Home believes that true luxury is not about ostentation or expense.  It is about simplicity. Sanctuary. Comfort.  It’s the beauty that happens when everything, including you, has its own ideal space.
