Duffy Stone’s Barn Style Bungalow

August 7th, 2014

Pushing open the wrought iron gates of Duffy Stone’s 1930s barn style bungalow feels like you are walking in to another world. The serene, overgrown gardens that surround the house on all sides are a contrast to the buzzing, vibrant East Austin neighborhood around them. Interior designer Duffy and her documentary filmmaker boyfriend, Ben Powell, have created a stylish retreat with their Viszla, Werner, that embodies her laid back, organic approach to design — “I’ll mix anything. If I love it and the color’s right… then it goes. I don’t like to overthink things,” she says in her charming Southern drawl. “Most importantly, the space has got to have some soul and occasionally a groovy side-serving of 1960s flare.”
