Villa de Luxe Show House - Houston, Texas - February 2013


In February 2013, a historic Houston estate in one of the city’s most exclusive neighborhoods was transformed into a stunning designer showhouse for the benefit of Preservation Houston. The house and grounds, reimagined by some of the city’s leading interior designers and architects, was open to the public the first three weekends in February.A different designer was responsible for each of the 20 rooms in the Venetian Revival style mansion built for hardware magnate F.A. Heitman in 1926. Designed by architect William Ward Watkin, the house stands on two acres in Shadyside, a private place neighborhood adjacent to Rice University, developed by Joseph S. Cullinan, founder of The Texas Company (Texaco).
While featuring the best of today’s interior styles, the designers’ work showcased the home’s historic features, particularly the finely detailed woodwork and paneling that are hallmarks of Watkin’s buildings. Proceeds from the showhouse and its associated events will benefited Preservation Houston.

The Slovack-Bass design team worked together to create the Artist’s Loft using one of Cecil Touchon's gestural collages in a wall cluster. I just happened onto these images and while a year late, no reason not to document it.

 

The Great White Cloud of Noise

The great white cloud of noise.
In today's world of television,
a suspicious smoke was reported.
Professionals are still confused by exactly what it is,
their words are often desperate and haunted, dealing with mental illness.

At least stop and consider,
[talk is cheap, but]
nothing is cheap anymore in absolute terms.

Everyone has an opinion about everything.
It's very easy to get sucked in.
Expert after expert has an opinion.
While credentials and resume are impressive, does that mean you should listen?

Sorting the wheat from the chaff can be a daunting task,
One of the hardest things to do.

[The] story is now murky because of questions.
This is a sign that something may be about to happen,
but no one is sure what it will be.
Analysts are silent.

This type of disconnect has historically ended badly.
