February 22, 2024

I really like inside design virtually as a lot as backyard design. And so each January I look ahead to stepping inside a number of the most inspiring and exquisite houses in Austin, executed by native inside designers, on the annual Tribeza Interiors Tour. I’m grateful to the owners for bravely and generously opening their non-public areas to the general public. I all the time discover one thing in every one to understand, and generally a home wows me from the entrance door to the again.

Right here’s an outline of this yr’s tour, which passed off on January twenty first, minus the Renner Venture home, which didn’t enable pictures.

On the first house, the lobby was dramatic with large-scale floral wallpaper and a black background. I admired the herringbone brick flooring too.

In line with Tribeza:

I walked right into a small sitting room with comfortable-looking furnishings upholstered in superbly patterned materials.
