Westlake Hills: Bringing a Bit of Californian Charm to Spacious Family Home in Texas

Californian style is one that is easily distinguishable no matter where you see it. It has a certain breezy coastal appeal that is combined with modernity and a touch of eclectic charm. Having moved recently from the state, a young family of six in Austin wanted a house that combine a bit of this unmistakable Californian panache with Texan style to offer the best of both worlds. Created by Mark Ashby Design, the new residence feels like an open, interactive setting where the public areas are clearly delineated from private spaces and offer a relaxing environment. White is used to shape much of the backdrop with modern décor bringing pops of color.
