Last weekend, Tim and I went to an open house that was being advertised on one of Tulsa’s design sites. It was said to be a great place to see modern design. Although we didn’t see the space as completely modern, we did think it had some inspiring architecture and a style that was totally worth sharing with you! As a matter of fact this house was deemed one of Tulsa’s most historic homes! Check it out!
This is the open and airy entry way. I’m a big fan of the pebble tiled floor and tall angled ceilings. Down at the end of the hallway is a door to the glass enclosed pool.
This room is located down the hall from the entry way and right before you get to the door leading to the pool.
The pool was actually the driving factor behind the design of the home. In other words, it was designed first and the rest of the home was created to compliment it. I love how it is completely encased with windows! Talk about letting the outdoors in!
Here is the living room which seems pretty standard besides the very unique and interesting wall to the right.
The installment has randomly placed light bulbs behind a wall of stretched string. Definitely an unexpected touch. I really like how the whole fixture creates beautiful shadows on both the floor and ceiling.
Probably my favorite room in the house was this library/study area. And I think it’s the ceiling that stole my heart! I wonder if there is a way to DIY this look!
All the upstairs rooms had a very lofty feeling. I have never seen ceilings like the ones I saw in this home. I am a big fan of exposed beams in any home and this place was no different. Below is the master bedroom that I think would really benefit from a fantastic chandelier.
The hall bathroom had a red mosaic tile floor that was to die for!
The kids’ area was also very unique and interesting. The space consisted of two bedrooms that were set off of one larger play room area. The walls of the bedrooms were glass allowing for you to see every area at once.
It actually seems like a neat set-up as long as the kids go to bed at the same time.
I really liked the solar system mobile in the boy’s sleeping space, so I made sure to get a good shot of it for you. 🙂
That concludes the tour of this historic Midtown Tulsa home. If you know of another house I should feature, let me know! I love going inside people’s homes whether it’s virtually or in real life! 🙂
