Interiors Tour: Lock & Leave Waterfront Retreat, Part III
November 29, 2019 in Interiors Tour | no comments

We hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving! On today’s blog we will conclude our tour of a Lakeway home that we are calling our “Lock & Leave Waterfront Retreat.” We have toured the main spaces, master bedroom, and powder. Today we will tour some of the guest rooms, loft and casita. The homeowners, who are empty nesters, still wanted plenty of extra rooms for their children and extended family as they host different dinner parties and holidays. They wanted these extra spaces to have the same inviting feeling as all of the other spaces in the home. Let’s tour these remaining spaces.


Upstairs in the home’s loft, which is more like a landing/hallway. Our client wanted to incorporate a large shelf to store all of the photo books that she had collected over the years. Next to the storage piece, we added in a pretty French Bergere chair with a fun bright pink block print pillow. The homeowner wanted a dash of unexpected color in this space. We then made a custom shade in the same fabric. It adds such a charming detail the loft.


The lakeside home’s casita offers a private space for guests to stay while visiting the couple. We incorporated a serene lavender color scheme paired with neutral tones and natural elements like woven shades and a jute rug. To make the space feel like a hotelette, we incorporated a media piece that would mainly serve as a coffee bar, with a mini fridge added in and a coffee maker so guests have access to all of the amenities they need for a comfortable stay.

The Casita bath offers the same serene feeling with neutral colors and clay tile.

Guest Bedroom

The guest bedroom upstairs is meant to feel minimal and more masculine. We recovered an existing heirloom chair with a more modern fabric. It looks just like new.

Guest Bathroom

If you read last week’s blog, you will know our client is in love with all things Paris. We sourced a pretty black and white fabric with different views of Paris for a custom shower curtain with a valance. It adds character to the guest bath.

We hope you have a great holiday weekend! We are closed today and will reopen Monday at 11 am.
