Richardson, Texas

The homeowners of this 1970's home are a busy family of 5, transplanted to the Dallas area from Austin, Texas. They've always carried a soft spot in their hearts for their former city, so we used that Austin vibe as our jumping off point and transformed this fairly standard suburban interior into a Hill Country Modern gem.

Functionally, the layout wasn't working well for how we live today. The traditional U-shaped kitchen layout with peninsula cut the usable kitchen space in half. Beyond that, a MONSTER fireplace wrapped the corner from the living room to the kitchen and became the strangest built in stove and double oven situation we have ever encountered (the before and afters at the bottom of the page are a must-see). We reworked the layout and the fireplace, creating an open and airy modern kitchen with the most charming breakfast nook we ever did see.

2 years later we were able to return and tackle the outdoor pool and patio as well as the master bedroom.  We were able to carry that Modern Hill Country feel into these two areas.
