House hunting may cause many conflicting emotions, excitement tempered with nervousness, optimism tinged with doubt. Finding the perfect home that ticks every box on a wish list can be a challenge, and yet waiting to find everything on the list may mean another buyer swoops in and seals the deal first. The fundamental baseline for the right high-rise condominium in Houston may be a commute under 20 minutes each way to work, enough space for a growing family, or an open concept floor plan to entertain in style. Bonus points for spectacular views and five-star amenities because there will undoubtedly be days when you want to start off in the gym, and other days spent lounging by the pool, followed by an alfresco meal cooked on an outdoor grill. The Parklane, the iconic 35-story condominium adjacent to Hermann Park, boasts a prime location, sweeping views of Hermann Park and the city skyline, and five-star amenities reminiscent of a resort. What could be better? Well, being able to put your personal touch onto a residence when you buy it would be the pièce de résistance. The Parklane has four distinct interior design packages which homebuyers can choose from, making their new home instantly familiar and welcoming, updated, and in tune with their high-rise lifestyle. We take a look at each design package, is there one, in particular, that is calling to you?
For those who love being close to the city but not being dominated by the city, Urban Elegance is represented by arctic white stone with medium veining, elegant, whitewashed ash wood cabinets by Eggersmann , a subtle contrast of sandy grey solid hardwood flooring throughout the main living area and master bedroom, calming light grey wall colors, and chrome fixtures. Elegantly simple, and simply elegant, the color choices are summed up as a neutral metropolitan palette with a gradient of color. The contemporary splashbacks and countertops are an eye-catching feature with the sporadic veining providing a juxtaposition to the clean lines and angles of the Bosch home appliance series and the expertly crafted Eggersman cabinetry.
Maybe this package will resonate instantly with the homebuyer who is looking for a natural combination of wood tones and warmth, the blend of nature’s beauty with contrasting colors and design features that set the tone for the room rather than being a blank canvas. Crisp white walls contrast with contrasting sandy grey solid hardwood flooring, while the Eggersmann cabinetry is a warm shade of medium oak with earth tones. Chrome fixtures and the arctic white-veined stone in the kitchen make a sophisticated first impression, with no doubt the design was striking and always intended to be an integral part of the overall character of the space.
Described by the design team as smooth, rich, and serene, the light latte-colored cabinets, dark-tone chocolate hardwood floors, and caramel color polished stone conjure an instantly soothing and luxurious ambiance. Crisp, white walls, and chrome fixtures contrast as the rooms take on a mood of calming, understated opulence. The Parklane panes of curved glass bring natural light flooding into each residence, and the light against the dark flooring in this package makes the rooms appear quite distinct by day or by night.
Living in the city doesn’t mean giving up the rustic comforts of home. Bringing a simple yet homey ambiance to the high-rise living , this package is warm, comfortable, and relaxed. Weathered grey oak cabinets in the kitchen act as a backdrop to rich, warm polished chocolate stone, unpretentious and unassuming. Light-tone hardwood floors, crisp, white wall colors, and contrasting black matte fixtures complete the interior design styling which would look just as welcoming in an urban or suburban setting.
A High Rise Living Space with a Fast Track to your Aesthetic
Of course, the interior design package is a starting point for the home, a makeover symbolic of the move and a new homeowner turning their new residence into their new home. When move-in day arrives, the wall colors, Eggersmann cabinets, stone tiles, countertops, and fixtures will already be a reflection of the homebuyer’s personality. Remodeled with meticulous attention to detail, the newly reimagined one to three-bedroom floor plans are spacious and light-filled. For homebuyers who want a larger high-rise space than the single residences, combination units are also available, combining two residences into one cohesive living space, increasing the square footage and interior floor plan options. Every residence at The Parklane has at least one private balcony, with some condominiums having four.
