The 2,400-square-foot home of a young Austin bachelor was unfurnished and lacked hierarchy in the division of space. The goal was to bring modern masculinity to the space without being rustic or industrial. The home’s textural, contemporary look was highlighted with antique touches, including a pair of 1940s French candlestick lamps with custom shades and a Noguchi light sculpture.
As the client began to enjoy and understand the value of interior design, the project expanded from furnishing selections to include a kitchen remodel. The homeowner was initially wary of adding black tile, but through trust in our team and trust in the process, the collaboration produced a result he savored – a high impact backsplash that brought a touch of moodiness to the space.
Many of the furniture and accessory items were sourced from the Marburger Farm Antique Show in Round Top, including a vintage carved bullhead and an array of 1930s vintage mounted horns. The old and new were unified with a bold and unexpected green-and-white painting commissioned for his dining room.
