Project by: Sarah Stacey Design
Location: Austin, Texas

This 1960s ranch style home is located in Austin off Shoal Creek and is owned by a young family with a 5-month-old. The homeowner contacted us before they had even closed on the home. She was pregnant at the time and had always lived with her mother’s things; she wanted her new home to be what she always wanted and to be prepared when baby arrived.

When we started the project, she handed me a scrapbook filled with magazine clippings she had collected over the years of interiors that she loved. This is what I used as inspiration for the project. We worked on the entire home minus the kitchen and bathrooms.

In the dining room we gave the fireplace a face lift by adding the geometric black and white cement tiles and wrapped the plaster mantel in wood, finally painting the cabinets with a coat of blue paint (Moody Blue by Sherwin Williams). We filled the shelves with one-of-a-kind vintage and antique finds.
