A Fashionable Address

The glamorous home of Houston's favorite interior designer, J.Randall Powers has just gone on the market. The stylish home he shares with his partner was featured in the May 2008 issue of Elle Décor. J.Randall, or Randy as he is called by those who know him, is the go-to designer for Houston's elite. His extraordinary talent encompasses a variety of styles, as can be evidenced in his portfolio. Coincidentally, he designed the home of the Singers, which I featured earlier in the week.

A man after my own heart, symmetry is prevalent in his designs.

I love that the house is washed in white, both on the exterior and the interior. It creates the perfect canvas for Powers' antiques and impressive art collection, which includes works by Cy Twombly and Peter Sullivan.

Perfect Symmetry

I love the eclectic look created by the oversized lantern, Knoll Flat Bar Brno Chairs, and antique console table. The table looks rather intimate in spite of the large room.

Powers blends antique and new pieces together beautifully.

Streamlined Kitchen

The media room manages to feel sleek and cozy all at once. The Hermès cashmere throws certainly don't hurt.

The master suite, like the rest of the house, features French white oak floors. Floating the bed is ingenious!

The master bath and perfectly organized closet feature custom cabinetry.

Chic Guest Bedroom

The slate side patio is home to a fire pit.

Wow - this is by far my favorite kind of post - beautiful real estate, combined with amazing decor, and a dash of designer celebrity. I can't wait to look at every picture in detail. My first impression - love the light floors, and the dining room is sublime with the oversize lantern and the amazing contemporary art. I wonder who the artist is?

I normally don't like modern or stark sort of homes like this, as they feel cold and uninviting to my traditional taste but this feels so warm. I love it!

Alicia B, I couldn't agree more. Randy really has a knack for making even the most formal space feel inviting.
