A rustic Texan residence

This entrance is truly one-of-a-kind. Replete with a vintage vibe, the home boasts geometric architectural lines, and interesting organic forms. From this vantage we are able to see the bright green front door, as well as the cylindrical chimney that provides a warmth to the interior space. The residence has an earthy quality, feeling as though it is part of of the surrounding environment, and blending extremely well with its Austin landscape.

Come on in!

As we peek through the bright green doors, we are given a hint of this home's stylish '70s aesthetic. The door itself is unique and intriguing. However, inside is a drastically transformed property. We peek into the interior spaces through the bold and vivacious front entry, and inside the residence appears modern, light, bright, and interesting.

An eclectic inteiror

Looking as though it would suit the cover of a magazine, the interior domestic living spaces give a glamorous  glimpse of modernity and innovation. Replete with an eclectic blend of mid-century furniture, this house brings a sense of playfulness into the neighbourhood. The oversized fireplace takes centre stage within the lounge space, and offers the occupant a place to get cosy and relax within the home. We can also see the formal dining space, which follows the bright colour scheme for the furniture and presents a stylishly interesting room.

Light, bright, and airy

The aqua tones are continued through to the new modern kitchen, which boasts a sleek contemporary design. The colour palette is predominantly white, with plenty of lively accessories to brighten the scheme. The kitchen is replete with two wash spaces, one against the wall, and another set into the island, while the breakfast bar provides a stylish and comfortable area for informal dining.

Perfectly accessorised

Throughout the home we see perfect accessories and accoutrements. Areas are warm and well-furnished, without feeling cramped or cloistered. In the kitchen, we see stylish accessories that work well against the light seafoam blue joinery, and retro cookware.

A cosy den

Wandering into the media room or den, the atmosphere is warm and inviting. Timber panelling creates a hospitable ambience, while the furniture still retains its retro vintage charm. A true mid-century designed space, modern techniques and storage are infused into the scheme to bring the space into the 21st century. The room is colourful, inviting, and an enjoyable space.

Rustic features

Taking one final look within the front of the house, and we are able to see the interior view of the chimney. This cylindrical feature of the home brings a truly rustic feel to the entire space. The space has been designed again utilising the clear and crisp blue colours throughout, as well as pairing a statement chandelier to add a hint of opulence. An earthy and organic element, the chimney provides a space for one to relax, unwind, and stay warm, while enjoying the beautiful view beyond.
