Some homes stand a part with their presence. They hold great stature, elegance, and grandeur. My friend Libby’s home is surely one of those outstanding estates to remember. Originally built by the former Governor Clements of Texas, this home feels grand but cozy. It is full of beautiful collections displayed in clever ways, as well as lushly layered pattern and design.
While it is timeless in its aesthetic, it was surprisingly build in 2002. Architect Richard Drummond Davis and legendary Dallas designer Gloria Nicoud collaborated to make this home withstand the ages. There are many patriotic elements and nods to Texas history. The same Zuber wallpaper depicting the Revolutionary War that is in the White House adorns the walls of the dining room. Intricate carvings on all the fireplaces showcase stories. The living room fireplace depicts the six flags that once stood over Texas, the capitol, and governors mansion.
As Libby mentions in the tour, the home was simply waiting for them when it hit the market. With traditional collections and classic furniture, Libby and her husband were the ideal stewards of this home steeped in history and elegance. They hired designer Perry Henderson to incorporate their furnishings, while adding chicly distinct updates to make it their own. I do hope you enjoy this tour.
