Pamela Pierce on French Style

By Bernadette Truxal

Designer Inspiration from Pamela Pierce

Pamela Pierce is an extremely talented interior designer from Houston, Texas who is known for her French style.   Her designs highlight her love of antiques.  We at Maison & Co. are inspired by her beautiful aesthetic and use of French and Swedish antiques.   

Her style is authentic, peaceful, understated, and somewhat rustic.    She uses natural materials like limestone, stucco, reclaimed beams, and seagrass to create a sense of warmth and history.  Her designs often incorporate reclaimed antique doors and her kitchens have a wonderful European feel.  

Pam's work has been published in Veranda, Western Interiors, and Southern Accents.  Her work has also been featured in industry-relevant design books.


This is such an elegant room ~ beautiful pair of French Louis XVI style settees, separated by a Swedish table; and a French Louis XVI style barrel back

bergere with matching child's bergere.  ( We have a similar French barrel back bergere in the Louis XVI style for sale on our website:  )

We love the blue painted trumeau and linen slipcovered furniture!  Photo via Veranda Magazine.


What a view ~ looks like Provence!   A gorgeous French garden table sits in front of the massive metal doors that lead to the patio.  ( This iron

table reminds us of the French butcher tables that we have for sale on our website at ) The baker's rack is filled

with antique French pots.  Photo via Veranda Magazine.


This room is so inviting with its  pleasant mix of contemporary and antique.   The French biots, filled with white roses, are

just beautiful - atop the mantel and behind the linen slipcovered sofa.   Photo via Providence Design blog.  


What a beautiful Swedish Mora clock!  This is such a cozy sitting room! ( We have a white Swedish Mora clock for sale on our website at )

We love the simple elements in this room; vintage apothecary bottles, ivory dinnerware on open shelves, and a French lettuce cloche on the

dining table.   ( We have a collection of vintage French apothecary bottles for sale on our website at )

This kitchen is truly special with the large steel doors and window.  We love the antique French marble-topped

charcuterie table and the French bull head (French butcher's trade sign).   Photo from Veranda Magazine via Cote de Texas blog.


Pam pairs a French farm table with a stainless steel island.  There is a charming collection of antique cutting boards on the back counter.

feminine and we love the collection of copper and stainless steel pots.  Photo via Cote de Texas blog.

website at )   The dining area ~ a simple antique garden table and French Louis XVI style chairs.  Photo via Veranda Magazine.


This kitchen is rustic perfection with reclaimed beams, limestone floor, and a center island with a 4-inch thick piece of limestone.  We especially love

the collection of copper pots, the antique scale, and the collection of antique marble mortars and pistols.  Photo via Veranda Magazine.


Another stunning Pamela Pierce design as featured in Antiques Shops and Designers Magazine via Cote de Texas blog.  Blue and white Fortuny pillows

complement the antique French cabinet.


This room is stunning ~ gorgeous Swedish table and chairs, stunning balustrade lamps with linen shades, and an amazing pair of red, oversized doors

We are excited to share Pamela's newest venture with you.  She is the founder and editor of a new design magazine called Milieu.  It will be a 

quarterly print magazine, debuting in September 2013.  The magazine will feature beautiful photographs of interior design and gardens found in the U.S.

and Europe.  The magazine will also feature stories on other subjects such as jewelry and art.  One of Pamela's goals is to showcase houses

that haven't been published before.   Milieu, is now available.  To order the magazine, click here.   Photo via Hello Lovely blog.
