Before + After: Lightened Up Luxury

In the master bathroom, herringbone detailing in the marbled floor tiles offers an unexpected change from the usual square tiles. Layered mirrors and elegant chandeliers play into the client’s desire for lots of bright and light details.

The master bath also received a dramatic makeover. Wrapped in white with mirrored vanity alcoves topped with additional Venetian mirrors, the room offers no hint of its prior dark and somber atmosphere. Two oversized chandeliers, dripping with accents that resemble layers of Chanel pearls, add to the elegant ambiance.

The game room combines luxury and comfortable style at every turn. The wainscoting’s deep gray color gives the room a stately attitude. Varying shades of blue appear in solids and prints for added texture and interest. The curtains are in a striking Schumacher print from the company’s ‘Waterfall Moiré’ collection. Harkovich surrounded the poker table with swivel chairs for ease. Soft rugs warm up the travertine tile floors.

For the game room’s update, Harkovich departed a bit from the neutral palette by bringing in stronger shades of blue through the upholstery, window treatments, and rugs—even extending to the felt on the custom pool table. The space emits the relaxed vibe of a private club with dark gray paint covering the millwork, a navy velvet nailhead-trimmed sectional, and textured fabrics with shots of cobalt and other vivid blues.

Although evidence of the home’s prior castle-like existence remains in certain architectural details, it’s the light-filled, welcoming spaces that now reign supreme. Under Harkovich’s deft hand, the home has transformed into a Texas Hill Country gem with a Hamptons mind-set.
