The Southern Living 2018 Idea House opens to the public for tours in Austin on June 15. Southern Living selects only one Idea House per year and has been building them in cities all across the South for nearly 30 years. This time, though, the 2018 Idea House is actually a renovation located in the Northwest Hills area of Austin. This year, too, Southern Living is working with an all-local team for its design, build, and decor. Meredith Ellis, owner of Meredith Ellis Design, is managing the interior design with much of the fabric, wallpaper, rugs and accessories selected through JAMES Showroom, which is owned and operated by Ellis. Chris Sanders of Sanders Architecture oversaw the home’s architecture. Sanders’ house plans are available for purchase via Southern Living. David Wilkes Builders is the builder.
The Idea House will be open to the public from June 15-November 15 for tours. There is a $20 entrance fee, and a portion of proceeds will go to Dell Children’s Medical Center. Hours are Wednesday – Saturday 10:00-4:00 p.m. and Sundays noon-4:00 p.m. For more information, visit: https://www.southernliving.com/home/idea-houses.
