A Rustic Bungalow in Austin, TX Celebrating Family

Every time I miss a family milestone or the temperature dips below freezing, I feel a subtle tug to pack up my Chicago home and move back to Texas. Sure, its heat waves are legendary, but my home state boasts so much more than that. It has a personality all its own, some of the nicest people around and will always be a place I can go to recenter myself amongst the familiar.
I’m not the only one whose heart forever beats with Texas pride. Designer Avery Cox totally relates. Years after leaving Dallas behind for the Northeast, her longing to return grew so strong she eventually gave in and headed back home. This time around, she set her sights on Austin, the state’s burgeoning artistic center, in hopes of both reconnecting with loved ones and making a splash within the design community.
The years she spent away from Texas not only found Avery falling in and out of love, but learning the ropes of interior design from some of the greats. Since moving back, she’s applied her genius to the look of her two-bedroom bungalow on Austin’s East Side. Full of eclectic finds and cozy textures, the home feels effortlessly curated and epitomizes the surrounding community’s laid-back style. The home’s greatest asset isn’t Avery’s emerald sofa or enviable shiplap walls, though. On the contrary, it’s the sentimental accents throughout each of her space’s 1,200 square feet that are truly unforgettable. Artwork by her late mother is celebrated in her living room, and on nights in she plays her dad’s old records and sips cocktails out of her grandmother’s serveware with her friends. In this rustic pad, every night truly is family night. Scroll down, and enjoy! ?Garrett

Image above: The wood paneling in Avery’s house makes it feel homey, but it doesn’t provide natural light anything to bounce off of. At times, this leaves the home quite dark. To keep the house from feeling too dreary, Avery continually hunts down cheery pieces that enliven the space through color and pattern.
