Virtual Houston Modern Home Tour

By Marissa Sainz, May 21, 2021

The Houston Modern Homes Tour is virtual this year! Although touring in person and experiencing the designs firsthand is always preferable, this event opens home touring to agents, designers, architects, and homeowners across the country. Tomorrow I’ll be attending the virtual event between 8:00 am -3:00 pm, virtually touring incredible Houston homes. I’m ready to soak up some home design Inspiration. Tickets are still live if you want to join me.

Unlike in-person home tours, the virtual event allows viewing access to homes that would have otherwise been closed to crowds of people. The event provides access to photos and videos of each tour afterward, so we can all save our favorite designs and details. Plus, while touring the homes, we can sit in on conversations with architects, designers, and the homeowners.

Check out the designers and projects I’m most excited to view:


Eklektik Interiors

Their designs are timeless, modern, and incorporate design elements from all over the world. The ranch home featured in the tour is magnificent, seamlessly incorporating walnut, iron rods, concrete walls, and floor-to-ceiling windows. Their use of different materials is striking, and I’m looking forward to gaining inspiration for future designs!




Gary R. Chandler

Chandler’s designs are known for blending outdoor and indoor living. Everything is connected by line of sight, creating an open-concept feel, even in a closed space. His featured cabana is designed with glass walls facing the backyard and a minimalistic white interior. I am inspired by his connection to nature and curious how I can bring that to life in Portland!




While browsing the featured home, this one caught my eye. It is described as a “dwelling unit” — a small home or guest house designed to utilize every inch of space. Because it is built in a controlled environment, rather than on-site, it can be delivered right to your backyard! It is such a unique concept…I’m looking forward to seeing how they utilized the space inside the unit.



Get your tickets now before it’s too late! For any more information on today’s event, check out the Modern Architecture and Design Society website.
