For six years, Bret Duhon and his sister Mimi Wadsworth have been entrenched in the Houston design community, running their stylish home shop, Boxwood Interiors, on Dunlavy. Now that the original location is being redeveloped into a retail/residential center, the duo has divided Boxwoods and is re-envisioning the store in two separate locales. An intimate space at 1839 West Alabama retains the Boxwoods name, as well as home furnishings, lighting, pillows and accessories galore, all arranged in fetching vignettes. This space also stocks the famed Farrow & Ball paints (last year, Boxwood was named the British brand’s number-one stocking dealer in the States). Just down the road at 1320 West Alabama, a sister shop known as B2 is situated in a former convenience store and the house behind it. Here you’ll find a new design center created as a spread-out-your-project resource to help decorating-minded shoppers find everything from fabrics to wallpaper, with customization of lamps, pillows, painted furniture and upholstery. 1839 W. Alabama, 713.528.1501; B2, 1320 W. Alabama, 832.582.8785 boxwoodhouston.com.
