We had something to do with this.

This home is for sale...... It is only two years old......

Located in the Memorial Area of Houston it is amazing....

No detail left unattended.

Designed by my good friend Jon D. Bartell of Jon Bartell Designs, it reflects part of his versitility and amazing talent..... This is the rotunda like window in the entryway......

When I first saw this I felt like I should KNEEL.

Very French in style but with middle Eastern touches, it is spectacular.

A little library off the main living room.

This first floor is so open.......

Even with huge open rooms cozy corners are present.

JD  designed this kitchen the base which you can't see how gorgeous the base was  but was grey blue to go with the Breakfast room chandelier .

Made of Murano Glass to reflect the mosaic in the pool outside, it started off at the top as an azure blue and faded into white....
THIS was my favorite thing in the house.....

Powder room.   Where's the Powder?

Fountain outside near the pool....

This was going TO the pool........So. How am I connected with this....????  JD and I work together of some projects I fill in with some accessories,bedding etc.... in this case all the dinnerware came from Beadboard....... The Pictures are on KHOU  TV, Houston. JD came in today to consult on another project we are working on together....
Oh and these pics are the tip of the iceberg,,,, I went all through this house....... You can have it for a pittance 14.9 Mill.

  1. i want those bar stools.
    i wish i could see the whole stool.


  2. Oh dear what a big house! Love the French style of it! And all these carefully chosen details make this an amazing home!
    The French styled mantel piece is gorgeous!! As in a French château!
    Have a wonderful Sunday evening Sis!!

  3. I am wondering which stone is used for that kitchen platform. The work of Jon is so perfect there is no details left. Perfect. xoxo

  4. This post has been somewhat of a revelation to me.

  5. 14.9 mil. is even a huge price for Houston but it's worth every cent. Jon's home is well..nothing short of breathtaking. The Murano chandelier..WoW. Maryanne, how fabulous is this man!! Truly has to be exciting to work on projects together. I can see you'd make one heck of a duo.
