Lakeway/Firebird New Custom Home

Today’s reveal is a “Hill Country Modern” custom home I recently worked on.  I’ve helped this family remodel one home and also build two new homes.    The owner is a custom home builder, Craftsmen Custom Homes, and he also owns a framing company called Double Cut Inc.  in the Austin area. We always have a great time making all the selections and it’s a true joy to help them each time.

I love the entry way with it’s light fixture made of black iron and gold accents.  There’s no glass on this fixture which makes it very nice for maintenance.  The table lamps were purchased separately but coordinate great together with the same finishes.

After you enter, you walk into the open space of the large Living Room/Dining Room/Kitchen area:

LOVE the chandy when dimmed, over the Dining Room table. 

We would love for the gorgeous shutters to be closer to the mirror :).  They were installed before we could change it and those screw mounts are very heavy duty and those shutters are VERY heavy.   So, moving them just wasn’t worth the angst!  (these are those lil details that drive designers wonky)

Subway is just truly a classic and we used a beveled version here:

Love how the weathered wood look turned out.  We used Stephanie Fitzharris, a local faux artist, to paint the shelves , the wood vent surround and also the kitchen island.
The large walk thru pantry is located on the wall just behind the stove and this cute beverage bar is on the right side of the pantry.  On the left side (not pictured) is a coffee bar:

We utilized a space on the island for a paper towel holder, another fave detail.  We also painted the island color a soft blue green (aged with a stain),  and different from the white perimeter cabinetry.

Off from the kitchen is a planning desk and a built in banquette.   The reclaimed wood backsplash from Revival is another favorite detail with it’s mixed patinas of blues , green and turquoises.   Love this cozy nook because it overlooks the gorgeous Lake Travis and their swimming pool.  The Sputnik style light fixture adds some modern bling to the space also.  (a great example of mixing the old with the new)

The mudroom is just further down the hallway also.

Next time I’ll share the Powder Room and the Master Suite which is also on this “wing” of the house.
Until then, stay warm and hope you’ll come back soon!
