When Montrieo Poullard and Ernie Ball moved into their new home in southwest central Houston less than a year ago, the couple was feuding about how to decorate the nearly 2,000 sq. ft. starter home.
Poullard, a government employee, wanted to have all of the art in one room. Ball wanted to spread the art around the four bedroom home. A friend suggested they take a trip to The Gite Gallery for inspiration.
“When we first walked into the gallery we were taken aback,” says Poullard. “There was so much to look at and it all spoke to us,” adds Ball.
They were like children in a candy store. They wanted everything. They purchased several pieces and Lloyd advised them where to put them. They even took several of their prints and replaced them with original art from the gallery.
They were so inspired with the new feel of their home that they painted a few accent walls in the master bedroom and in the living room to make the art “pop” even more! “When you step into the front door you see a total transformation,” says Poullard. “The house now is just amazing,” adds Ball.
Poullard’s favorite room is the dining room. “I pretty much picked everything in that room. The paintings are colorful and dramatic and that large Baule mask is too cool.” As for Ball, a rehab specialist, he loves the entire house. “There’s nothing not to like. It feels really good coming home to something that looks like this.”
