Deep in the Heart of Texas

{The Dramatic Entry}

Texas often comes to people’s minds for many things, but it seems that when design is the topic at hand, people automatically associate Texas with French and Belgian inspired design. While those looks are lovely and they do tend to reign supreme in certain parts of my fair state, there is also a great modern design scene happening here. Take this amazing home in Austin, for example. Designed by Kimberely Renner, who also happens to be the homeowner, this formerly run-down duplex has been revived and transformed into a showcase of modern, original design.

{I love the contrast of the bright orange against the soft, grey walls. The space has a very organic, relaxed quality about it, much like Austin, the city the home is in.}

{Industrial accessories and furnishings work so well in the breakfast room. I love the Jielde lamp!}

{When Renner couldn’t find a fabric with stripes wide enough for her taste, she took matters into her own hands and created her own by piecing together strips of black and white Sunbrella fabric.}

{The glamorous brass lamp and black and white striped wingback chairs are the perfect counterpart to the chesterfield sofa.}

{The Circa Lighting chandelier lends a hint of glamour to the dining room.}

{I love the dramatic effect the series of Boston Functional Sconces gives the kitchen.}

{The master bathroom features another orange/grey combo including a custom-made vanity by Austin craftsman Frank Scaglione.}

{The designer’s sons’ room is covered in vintage maps. Naturally, this appeals to the traveler in me.}
