In case you missed it, Linda Grimm, Silverton Custom Homes, and I had a great time on “Good Day Austin” this week, talking about the showhome. Time to see the home is running out!
If you haven’t gotten there yet, Sunday is the last day the home is open to tour. In case you’ve forgotten, Denise McGaha and I will be giving presentations on design starting on Saturday the 23rd at 11am. Hope to see you there!
I wanted to make sure everyone got the chance to walk through before sharing some of the photos. These photos are from a variety of sources (including myself). I am sure you can tell the ‘professional’ pictures versus mine.
So, let’s start at the beginning!
The entryway has a central pair of seeded glass doors. A pair of windows and benches flank the entry.
One of my favorite looks is horizontal planking, so I couldn’t resist requesting its use throughout the great room of the home.
This is a lake front home with beautiful views. Most of the homeowners in this area own homes as second residences, so that idea inspired many of the selections.
The great room has the ‘dining’ area in the middle, and also a little tabletop and chairs for a morning coffee by the view.
The kitchen is bright and fresh, with white cabinets and calacutta marble counters.
There is a not a ton of storage space in the ‘main kitchen’, but I think that is just awesome. Why clutter your everyday space with rarely used turkey roasters and extra pots and pans when you can store them in your…
Prep kitchen… with custom island built by The Gilded Stag
or your walk in pantry…
The downstairs also includes the master bedroom and two guest bedrooms. We staged one of the guest bedrooms as a study with amazing blue grasscloth wallpaper from Phillip Jefferies:
Silverton Custom Homes, the builder (in conjunction with Henley Homes) was incredible to work with. They were open to ideas and made each and every bathroom ‘custom’ with unique tile work, cabinetry, lighting and counters. Every space is special!
The master bedroom is in the back of the downstairs and also has beautiful, lake views.
The color palette throughout the home is essentially water colors (sand, greens and blues) with varying intensity throughout (such as the bright blue study).
For the master I decided on a peaceful retreat in creams with accents of brown. The only color is in the oil painting, which fits into the color scheme of the home overall. It is very elegant, but at the same time, comfortable and approachable. Not stuffy or too precious.
The bath is a true luxury, from the stand alone tub, the jetted shower and marble and antiqued glass cabinets and doors.
One of the guest bedrooms is also downstairs, at the opposite end of the home. It is a large size, big enough for two chairs and an ottoman.
This bedroom has a bright and cheery bath with beveled, cream crackle subway tile and turquoise and purple accents.
When you go up to the second level of the home, there is a landing flanked by two bedroom suites. The landing features a coastal living sectional covered in the new “Crypton” fabric. Let me tell you, this stuff works! Unfortunately there was a little incident with the sofa and ottoman getting carried up to the top floor. First, both were covered with dirty hand prints and, second, the sofa back got streaked with a black line from the iron railing.
The hand prints literally dusted right off with a damp cloth. The black line (black paint?) took three tries. The last one I actually followed the directions and used Tide and a toothbrush and that took off the black line.
To the left is a room that is geared more toward a young girl. I used lime green and bright blue.
All of the home’s permanent elements (tile, counters) are ‘neutral’ for longevity and the greatest appeal. However, we customized with colorful artwork and mirrors which could be easily replaced if the future buyer would like to do that.
The ‘boys’ bedroom features a spectacular custom trundle bed also from The Gilded Stag. This room is also blue and green, but more of a peacock color scheme. You might recognize fabrics from Celerie Kemble, Martyn Lawrence Bullard and Kelly Wearstler.
This bathroom has a tub with an arch ceiling above. We used decorative tilework on the ceiling which helped to highlight the architectural feature.
Oh, and in case you didn’t see the view, yet:
The exterior looks out at the lake and has a fire pit and infinity pool. We had the outdoor throw pillows custom made by Austin’s own Square Feathers.
It is a lovely home throughout, I hope you think so, too! Oh, and by the way, the house is for sale, furnishings included. This could be your dream lake home. Don’t forget to get out there before Sunday the 24th!
Everything is just stunning Heather!!! I LOVE the idea of a prep kitchen and walk in pantry. How luxurious! Great island by the Guilded Stag. Congrats on such a beautiful home Heather!!

Beautiful home! Do you mind telling me about the wood floors in your great room? I love them!
The floors were really lovely. They were by Hill Country Innovations. They are solid hickory. I believe the collection was the De La Bandera in Antique. You can confirm or purchase them directly from the builder, Silverton Custom Homes- http://www.silvertoncustomhomes.com/.
