Featured: Eleanor Cummings Interior Design

Houston based interior designer Eleanor Cummings is the owner of the eponymous firm Eleanor Cummings Interior Design. Her work has been featured in Veranda, House Beautiful, Traditional Homes, Paper City, and Country Homes.

Cumming’s design style, described as “elegant yet welcoming” in a Traditional Home feature, uses a mix of materials, particularly reclaimed materials and “unexpected touches” to create visual interest while maintaining an emphasis on comfort.

A Georgia native, Cummings became a Houstonian in the 1980s, when she took at job with Houston Home and Garden Magazine. She formed her own firm in 1986, typically working extensively in the Houston area, but occasionally as far flung as California and Maine.

The designer’s own country house, a French farmhouse just outside Round Top, Texas, has racked up glowing features on blogs and magazines alike, winning accolades for its cozy charm and “elegantly practical” use of materials ranging from painted concrete floors to a “19th-century French limestone fireplace sourced from Chateau Domingue.”
