House Crush : Austin

Austin House Crush

Sometimes it starts with a bathroom, this thing I call a “house crush.” It can begin with any room or detail or color that catches my attention, really.  This bathroom, the old sink, the old copper faucet, the simple pine shelf over potty (we still call it in our house) are so unassuming and so perfect.

One can only assume that when a bathroom is so becoming then the rest of the house, the rooms that connect from to the other, must also have some very pretty details that I’m hungry to see.

That is certainly the case with this Austin home owned by designer Claire Zinnecker.

This photo gallery so full and fabulous.

Touches of pink always induce a double take.

Austin House Crush  I find myself really taken by this, perhaps, pine wood kitchen. There is something really natural and modern about it all at the same time and yet still bright and cheery.

And it’s always the little details in the home, the curiosities that seal the crush. I have a few pretty scissors hanging, out in the open, in my kitchen, so I’m totally digging this vibe.

Honestly, these are the type of posts I wonder if I should carry on with, but sometimes it’s just fun looking into the homes of other people . . . to see how they live, what they collect, and what they find cozy. A home tells a person’s story. And at the end of the day, I’m all about the story. Even if, sometimes, it told in rooms and knick-knacks, and furniture and art.

YES! I love these posts. And I love seeing the insides of people’s homes. Real homes done well, but also real homes that people live in.

Thanks, Nancy. It’s so special to see into other’s homes, I think. xo .t

Wow this is an amazing house. And you are right! It started with a fantastic bathroom.

I think the bathroom is perfectly imperfect. xo . t
