Austin-based interior designer Sarah Wittenbraker recently worked with a couple whose Andersson-Wise-designed home in Montana has appeared on this blog. The couple is originally from New Orleans, and relocated their family to Austin when their daughters were in high school. Now that the girls are grown and have children of their own, the parents decided to create a weekend getaway nearer Austin than their Montana retreat. When an old farmhouse in Blanco turned up for sale, they sought help from Wittenbraker and Austin-based architect Michael Stouse. The designers’ mission was to clean up and modernize the farmhouse interiors just enough while still maintaining its original charm. The homeowners have an impressive antique and art collection that are part of their family collections. Wittenbraker incorporated them into her fresh design, pairing them with vintage lighting and contemporary ironwork in the railing and fireplace.
Wittenbraker’s goal was to elevate the innate style of the old home and punctuate it with a little quirkiness—but also to keep it a comfortable place for family and friends to relax.
