Blending urban elements with contemporary design, the Brisco model at Emory Glen is anything but ordinary. This 4-bedroom, 2.5-bathroom home in Magnolia, TX spanning 2,393 sq.ft. uses shades of emerald green, deep grayed-down blues, mustard golds, and teal to create a memorable and contemporary urban design, making anyone who enters feel welcome and energized.


“This home is a carefully crafted masterpiece that offers an unparalleled living experience,” says Kendall Schmitt of Nancy Rae Interiors. Warm leathers, deep-colored upholstery, brushed gold metal, and rustic woods complement the overall color scheme — bringing together unexpected elements that make this home a show-stopper.


Discover the inspiration behind the Brisco’s unique design and learn how to curate the urban contemporary home of your dreams.

The Living Room

As the focal point of the home, the living room’s ample size makes it an ideal space for all sorts of activities including game nights, watching movies, or chatting over drinks with friends. Its bright and airy feel is balanced by warm leathers and bold hues of green and blue, and is the perfect segue to the impressive outdoor living area — providing the best of indoor and outdoor living.

The Kitchen

If you’re someone who loves to host, this kitchen will not disappoint. An open-concept floor plan keeps the room feeling bright and airy, ensuring you’re always a part of the action. A dark green island and backsplash provide contrast and pops of color, complementing the home’s lush jewel-toned color scheme, while wicker chairs and iron lighting add texture to the space.

The Dining Room

The dining room has a transformative quality that can be curated to suit your needs. Its impressive size is the ideal backdrop for kids to complete homework and have a quick breakfast during the week, or for hosting dinner parties on the weekend. “The possibilities are endless when you have a space open to the kitchen,” Kendall explains. An oversized chestnut-colored table adds warmth and texture to the space, complementing blue velour dining chairs for a muted pop of color.

The Primary Bedroom and Ensuite

Radiating warmth and comfort, the primary bedroom is the ideal getaway after a long day. Its bold wallpaper and varying wooden textured furnishings make the space memorable, while a green lounge chair is the perfect place to kick back and relax. “Each room has warm textures that act as the perfect canvas for pops of color,” says Kendall. “We used layers of deep jewel tones to create a design that is comfortable, yet energizing.”
