It’s not often that you see such a splendid house. I’m not just saying that to make you curious, it’s really true. This authentic Spanish Colonial Revival was designed and built by Jennifer Hamelet of Mirador Builders out in Houston. With an experience of over 20 years in designing, building and marketing, Jennifer Hamelet managed to surprise us yet once more with this incredible house.
One of the most eye-catching room of the house is definitely the kitchen. It has turquoise cabinets and a beautiful wooden floor, with natural colors and all the natural details preserved. Moreover, the built-in ceiling lights add the final touch. The cabinets are Green Granite by Pittsburgh Paint. In order to create some color contrast, pops of red have been used in the kitchen as well.
Another interesting room would be the office. This time it’s not the furniture that catches our eye but the floor. What you see is a concrete rug. Jennifer Hamelet had a very ingenious way of creating this concrete rug. She actually sat down with a box of 20 color and pulled out five of them that she felt most resembled her 115 year old Heriz and Oushak rugs. Then she designed the tiles from templates and had them made in Nicaragua. It was a lot of work but, as you can see, it all paid off. The rest of the house is also very beautiful. There are custom tiles everywhere, antique chandeliers and sconces, 300 year-old antique colonial doors, turquoise window frames and many other beautiful details.
