More floral wall coverings in a lilac that plays very well with spring-evocative greens and contemporary art keeps this bedroom from Catherine M. Austin Interior Design from registering as too saccharine and girly. The color scheme was inspired by Austin’s time spent in Italy in the spring and the purple wisteria she saw there. Think about using your travel photos for both design and color inspiration.
The consistent, black surfaces of the countertops added depth and dimension to this loft, helping create the illusion of a larger space. Bronze and copper fixtures were selected by Ami Austin, interior designer, for a rustic, yet elegant tone. A long-tile backsplash was designed to protect the wooden walls near the kitchen sink as well as to create a sense of harmonizing style.
Candy colors and sherbet pinks, yellows and lilacs get a cooler treatment in this color-packed bedroom from Catherine M. Austin interior design. We love how she transformed a narrow hallway connecting a bedroom and bath with a punchy, sweet hydrangea purple balanced with a selection of well-curated contemporary art. Even the bold white etagere becomes an artsy statement piece when it’s piled with colorful art and design books to create a mini library/gallery space.
Interior designer Ami Austin chose a limited color palette that was warm, inviting and worked well with the wood-plank interior, because this helped contribute to the illusion of a larger, warmer space. The grey and rust-colored furnishings and rug were hand-picked to blend well with the livable luxury of this loft.

To take this modern Austin, Texas home from drab to fab, designers used different colored paints to create depth and drama on the front of this home.

These colors will carry into the home and create a fun, eclectic space on the interior as well as bring curb appeal to the home's modern facade.
