Ashton’s Casual Bohemian Bungalow

January 5th, 2015

Like many Austinites, Ashton Arthur fell in love with the city’s active outdoorsy vibe and vibrant food and music scenes when she moved here to attend University of Texas in the 90’s… and she never left. Ten years later, Ashton was ready to purchase a home of her own, and when she stepped through the doors of this 900-square-foot bungalow that boasted a 300-year-old Heritage Live Oak in the front yard, she knew she was home. As much as this account manager loved her charming space, after 7 years, she decided it was time to add a master bedroom, bath, and separate studio.

So, Ashton called upon her friend (and our former DIY contributor!) interior designer Claire Zinnecker to help her with the addition, confident that Claire’s expertise would ensure that material choices and colors would make the addition feel like a cohesive part of the house, as well as challenge her to add bold pattern and vibrant color in ways that would accent the simplicity of the rest of the home. We’re pretty obsessed with the results, and whether you’re thinking about a home add-on or simply want to spruce up your space with some new accents, I’m betting that many of you will find loads of inspiration from the project too.

    I love the homes you feature on your site, and who can argue that Claire Zinnecker’s style is fabulous, but for the most part, the homes all look so similar. I would love to see some homes that venture out from blue velvet chairs/couches/beds, white walls and the bucket breakfast table chairs. Just a little more variety every now and then, maybe……
