WHAT I WORE: MY FUTURE $1.5MM HOME

Tuesday, June 07, 2016

Everyone has a dream home, right? Well, I do too! My dream home just happens to be $1.5 MM dollars! Like any city, the closer you live to the epicenter, the more expensive the housing.  In Houston, the hot spot is living "inside the loop".  If you've ever been to Houston or looked at a map of Houston, you know that the downtown skyline is surrounded by two loop highways, 610 and Beltway 8. In the Loop refers to living within the 610 loop which puts you no more than 5 - 20 minutes from almost anything and everything you'd ever want to do in Houston (especially as a single, young professional). From sporting events, to nightclubs, restaurants and shopping, there are plenty of activities to do in the loop. With all this action nearby, it's easy to see why the price goes up the closer you live to the city. However, if you can afford to live in the loop, then it's well worth the price! 


I used to live in the loop when I first moved to Houston, and I enjoyed every minute of it! I moved when my job location shifted further south (I hate long commutes). I still have plans to return to the heart of the city one day and this time when I move back, I want to be in a home instead of an apartment. A dream home design would be this house that was built by On Point Custom Homes.  Clocking in at $1,499,999, this 4 Bedroom, 3.5 bath house is the epitome of my American dream. 4,263 sq. ft of fabulosity located in Houston's Upper Kirby district; 2211 Colquitt Street never looked so good! And because I don't actually live here (I'm sure all of you thought this was my house...haha), I was invited to check out the home and use it for a backdrop for some outfit shots. I happily accepted the offer. It's not every day one gets to walk into a $1.5MM home and play house!  I had a lot of fun changing my outfits and exploring all the spaces of this house, indoor and out. Over the next few days I'll be sharing different looks from around the home. All photos in this post were taken by my photography bestie, Leena Vuor!
