The building of the parade home is fully underway now and we are very busy with all the decisions for the home!
The Austin HBA Parade of Homes is scheduled to be held in Tierra Vista in Spicewood (also known as “Willie Nelson’s Ranch”). The dates are April 26th- May 11th.
The home I am designing is being built by Silverton Custom Homes (the same builder we worked with on the Southern Living Showcase Home). They have partnered with the amazing Texas Monthly magazine for the event and I am really excited about some of the benefits of the partnership. You will see more about the home in the coming issues of Texas Monthly magazine!
I thought I would give you a little preview of the home and some of the fabric/color elements we are looking at for the home.
First off, the home is situated on a bluff in the “Texas Hill Country”. You can see the hills in the background, even though the weather was horrible the day I took pictures!
This is the view from the family room. There is a river in the distance, but you can’t really see it here.
This is the amazing view from the master bedroom.
You feel like you are up above everything when you step out back. An infinity pool will be added, enhancing the amazing views that much more!
And now, for some of the fun stuff…Fabric and colors!
I’m still a big believer in timeless neutrals on all the fundamentals, so all the major elements are going to be done in creams and browns, but we’ve added a lot of rich blue and rust as the main color accents.
These are our main area elements, which includes the family room, kitchen, breakfast area and dining area.
The ‘laundry’ room in the back is huge and holds everything. These are the shade and bar stool fabric. I’ve been wanting to use the heron fabric for a while now!
The office is going to be very cool, with a music theme in homage to Willie and the history of the area. We’ll have some very rich textiles and colors, including orange taffeta and teal velvet.
Upstairs we are going to keep the cream and chocolate backdrop but in a little library alcove I am going to use ‘aubergine’ for something unique. There is a paint called Plum Chocolate which I think will be perfect!
There are 3 guest bedrooms and each of our interior designers are in charge of a bedroom. I can’t wait to see what they come up with!
I hope you are getting excited and plan on putting the Parade of Homes tour on your calendar at the end of April!
