About 50 miles west of Austin (and 50 miles north of San Antonio) sits the historic town of Blanco. It’s known around central Texas for it’s pioneer-style town square and beautiful riverfront park. As hill country towns go, Blanco is still relatively undiscovered — the population was still under 2,000 during the last census. The tiny Texas town was the perfect backdrop for designer Sarah Wittenbraker‘s well-traveled clients, who enlisted her to transform a fixer-upper into their dream country family retreat. “Not only was this project very meaningful for me, but so are the people who life here,” says Sarah of her Blanco clients.”They’re the most giving, gracious and downright fun family, I’m so grateful they trusted me with this special home.” Read on to discover how Sarah created a stylish rustic space for her clients with a big dose of Texas style.
