The Eclectic Home of Designer Cathy Echols

Houston designer Cathy Echols has filled her own home with color and humor in a style markedly different from her contemporaries around town. The results are eclectic with a heavy dose of midcentury cool and some very ornate, feminine pieces mixed in for good measure.

Though chock full of stuff, a central color scheme unifies each space to make the choices seem intentional and not like clutter. I especially love how the spaces are full of personal art objects, which adds life to their uninspiring architecture. Echols is a designer who isn't afraid to leave walls painted white, or to fill them completely with an assortment of framed pictures. These two concepts are at opposite ends of the design spectrum — and less bold professionals often choose to work somewhere in the middle. In this case, the risk pays off beautifully.
