We spent a month in my hometown of Houston, Texas in August. We returned to Paris on Saturday and my way of battling jet lag has been to relive the month via photos that I took for several Apartment Therapy home tours I shot while there. It was so great to get to shoot my friends homes, as well as a couple of people I didn’t know prior to photographing their homes. Marina & Sebastiano are recent transplants to Houston from NYC. They were used to limited space when they lived in New York, so purchasing a home in Houston meant a whole lot of firsts, including furnishing a 2 bedroom house in the historic Heights neighborhood close to downtown Houston. In my early 20’s I worked in the Heights. I used to ride my bike to work and wind through the neighborhoods to get off of the busy streets and admire all of the early 20th century craftsman houses. A lot of homeowners in this neighborhood are tearing down and rebulding more modern style homes (which I also like), so it’s nice to see that some people are preserving the history of this neighborhood with modern, innovative remodels.
