Beautifully positioned on Lake Austin, this Santa Barbara-style home is a thoughtful new construction build, which Turnstyle Design was a part of from its early beginnings. Our objective was to help the home lean most closely to its European roots, inferring a Spanish Mission style, while not being too literal. A large family home, we dug into very specific details by designing everything from stair railings and flooring inlays to light fixtures and cabinetry. With gorgeous finishes, this home is now ready for day-to-day living intersecting luxury with approach-ability.

Adorned with our signature custom upholstery and window treatments from room to room, this home remains playful, yet luxurious, and purposefully uncontrived. This home nods at its intended architectural style, while maintaining its individuality. We created various fluid seating areas to influence total use of the house. Incorporating our signature play of strong pattern and color, each room is carefully concepted to bring softness and intimacy to an expansive floor-plan. Our design resulted in an amiable high-end home, free of any aloofness easily expected in a home of this caliber.

I love the hand-painted dome above the main stairwell and the supple floor changes throughout. Other highlights I love are the custom-designed stair railings and doors, the intricately mixed marble back-splashes, the hand-made large scale mosaic medallion above the mantle. Not to mention, the custom-designed window treatments and the combination of mixed metals with period antique pieces.
