I like to visit the website for the Houston Area Association of Realtors on a regular basis. I love real estate and houses, so checking the new listings has been a regular habit of mine for quite some time. Yesterday, I came across designer Katie Stassi’s fabulous Houston home. It just came on the market for It has been featured in both Domino and Paper City. Katie was recently named one of Domino’s Top 10 Designers.
The house, which was originally built in 1960, was taken down to the studs and completely remodeled between 2006 and 2007. The result is decidedly fresh, feminine, modern and traditional all at once. It looks like it should belong in the Hollywood Hills. Upgrades include bleached parquet floors, Carrara marble, and Viking appliances. The one story house is nearly 4,000 square feet in size and is within close proximity to Houston’s best shopping and restaurants.
If you’re interested, you can see the MLS listinghere.
Fantastic kitchen (I think I would need more cabinets, though.)

Sitting Area right off of the kitchen
Gorgeous Master Bedroom (Is that a real zebra skin rug? I think I’d like a faux one better. This one makes me sad.)
Office complete with seagrass carpet
Beautiful little girl’s room. It reminds me of Apple’s room in Gwyneth Paltrow’s Hamptons House.
Another Secondary Bedroom
Saline pool and très L.A. awning
These images are from the MLS listing. It’s interesting to see how different it is styled when compared to the images from Katie’s website.
