I have always been in awe at the growth of Austin. Minus the near-decade I spent in Los Angeles after college, I have called this weird Texas city home since 1989. I’m one of the rare originals who doesn’t mind the city’s explosive growth. I cherish the diversity and culture that the expansion brings to the city, and being a part of that is so exciting. We will look back at this time in Austin and remember it as its golden age. Pretty cool stuff. All that said, Austin’s residential architectural scene has always been in need of…shall we say…a little extra help. Imagine lots (and lots!) of homes from the 80s & 90s screaming for love and attention. Oy so many weird angles, Tuscan kitchens, and Texas lone star decor.
