This Spanish-style house was designed by Ryan Street & Associates along with designer Elizabeth Stanley, is located in Tarrytown, a neighborhood in Austin, Texas. The designer and her now husband had purchased this property, having discovered it after a yard sale on the property. The designer’s trademark style is modern furnishings, flea market finds, fine antiques and contemporary art. She went on to become friend’s with the homeowners, who contacted her two years later to inform her their home was on the market.
The designer could not resist, as this home was is a beautiful neighborhood and was a very classic style of architecture in need of a renovation. After commissioning local architect Ryan Street to help the couple with the task, they discovered that the home was unfortunately not salvageable. So together, they devised a plan to tear down the home and site the new house in the same position on the gently sloping lot. They built the new home on the same footprint, in keeping with the spirit of the original structure—yet developing a better version.
On the interiors, the designer opted for a bright and airy feel, creating open spaces that are characteristic of a modernized home. The design scheme reflects an eclectic antique-meets-mod palette. The designer’s design style was inspired by her travels through places such as California, Santa Fe, Italy and France. She also consulted with a gallery owner friend to give her some artistic feedback on ranging artwork to meet the homeowner’s eclectic tastes.
The walls are white-waxed Venetian plaster, not only creating luminosity, but are the perfect backdrop for the owner’s unique art collection. Expansive steel-framed windows and doors overlook a terraced front yard. The interiors are brimming with intriguing design features, just waiting to be discovered by visiting guests. The designer has a unique flair for merging artistic aesthetic into livable spaces.
