Location: Travis Heights neighborhood, Austin, Texas
My best friend Marina moved to Tel Aviv to study abroad for a year, so I moved into her house. She moved out all of her stuff (except for a fabulous orange couch), and it's been really fun to make the place feel like my home by putting my own personality and style into it. Because it is a temporary space, I put a lot of work into it at the beginning so I could get settled in quickly. Also because it's temporary, I can take a lot more chances and do fun things that I think has made the house feel very playful.
