Designing Your Luxury Custom Home to Share Your Family History
Sometimes making the decision to construct an incredible luxury custom home that you envision being passed down from generation to generation is the easiest part of the entire building process. Once you commit to the idea, you are then opened up to a world of infinite options for what that house could look and feel like.
At Houston based Whitestone Builders, our goal is not simply to construct an impressive architectural work of art for you. We envision helping you create a custom luxury home full of life, personality, and your family’s story.
The best way to go about blending classic design with the inspired character that makes a luxury custom home truly yours is to use unique materials in traditional ways, and not vice versa. For example, a beautiful hardwood floor will probably never go out of style – but why not choose a wood native to an area of the world that you love, maybe from a specific place that you took a memorable family vacation? Or choose the same wood that you remember your grandparents having at their house. The same could go for a stone fireplace, which will always add an easy charm to any home, no matter what the style. Why not make the effort to include a few stones from the land where you may have a family cottage that is full of memories, or from where you used to go camping as a child? Do you happen to have boxes in storage of glass dinnerware or crystal vases handed down to you that you realistically know in your heart that you will never use? Bring them back to life by using a few of them to create a stunning one-of-a-kind stained glass window piece. At Whitestone Builders, we understand that your house deserves to be full of history and depth. Whether they are Houston natives or visitors from Europe, when your friends walk through your front door, they will feel as though they have been welcomed into a world of your cherished family memories.
If you feel inspired to add very dramatic expressions of your personality, keep in mind that what resonates with you so strongly now may not speak to you in the same way 30 years from now. It may be best to confine these impulses to easily changed elements, such as paint or landscaping, as opposed to anything structural. We have the experience to help you add character to your house with subtlety and elegance.
Whitestone Builders has the creativity to help you make your personality come to life in a timeless custom home in Houston in which generations to come will be proud to live. We will go above and beyond in our efforts to source unique materials and work with you on researching different eras that may be of importance to you. When executed with the proper vision, there is no reason why you can’t have a luxury custom home that is both effortlessly classic, which also brings your unique personality and history to life.
