Stepping into today’s colorful abode is at once breathtaking, inspiring, and like a big warm hug that invites you to sit down and stay awhile. That last part is no doubt due to the warmth of its owner, auburn-haired beauty, mother of 3, and talented Austin-based interior designer, Sarah Wittenbraker. Yep, Sarah would be easy to hate if her personality weren’t so darn amazing. The morning I stopped by to scout the location, I was welcomed by a table set with Raynaud china, fresh strawberries, & donuts (my kinda gal, obviously) and spent the next hour learning about Sarah’s background (she worked in fashion, TV and publishing in NYC before relocating to Austin while pregnant with her first daughter, Lulu), drilling her on how she keeps her home looking so amazing with small kids in the house, and of course touring her vibrant space. Sarah’s approach to design is clearly seen in each room of the house: daring and unafraid to take risks; bold without taking itself too seriously. Take a peek at her portfolio to see more of the spaces she’s designed, and click through the slides for a tour of her signature style splashed across the charming space where her family works and plays.
