Austin has long been one of my favorite cities, so I’m excited to travel there through today’s sneak peek into the home of Camille Styles and Adam Moore. Camille is the creator of a lifestyle blog about the creative entertaining ideas that inspire her parties and her life (she is also the host of HGTV’s new mobile party planning app). Adam is the co-founder and CEO of the website publishing software Spacecraft. The couple has worked on the home’s design since they were engaged, with the help of architect Ryan Street. A true labor of love, two years after they were married they moved into the house, where every detail reflects who they are and where they’ve been together. They share a love of clean lines, open spaces and neutral palettes with lots of texture. Most importantly, it’s the perfect place for year-round entertaining. Thanks to Camille and Adam, and thanks to Chad Wadsworth for the wonderful images. — Anne
Image above: We wanted the master bedroom to feel really serene — like a little getaway where we could escape from our busy lives! Our custom upholstered headboard is from NEST Modern, and we layered lots of different textures of West Elm bedding for a really cozy feel. The painting above the bed is really meaningful to us, as it was done by Adam’s brother before he passed away . . . something about it has always reminded me of a tranquil beach landscape.
Image above: Our huge steel doors are one of my favorite aspects of the house, since they provide a really strong contrast with the white walls yet allow tons of light into the living room for an airy feel. The same steel craftsmen who made our doors also made this custom chandelier, inspired by a similar one we’d loved at a winery in Napa. The travertine floors run throughout the entire house and straight outdoors to the pool, allowing the terrace to truly feel like an extension of the indoor living space.
More images of Camille and Adam’s Austin home after the jump!
Image above: These binoculars were a housewarming gift from Adam’s parents, and they look straight down onto Lake Austin so we can watch the water skiers and boats throughout the summer. Our gauze-y curtains are from Restoration Hardware, and on sunny days, we open up all the doors and let the curtains blow in the breeze.
Image above: We used these “floating” shelves made of espresso-stained white oak throughout the house. I’m constantly arranging and rearranging their contents, and it’s a fun way to change the decor with the seasons. This paint color used throughout the downstairs is a super warm “Mediterranean White” from Restoration Hardware.
Image above: This white vintage bar cart was an eBay find, and while it technically lives in my office, I’m constantly pulling it out to use as a photo shoot prop. It’s been painted gold and white, and I’m thinking its next incarnation might be hot pink! Above the cart is my ever-evolving inspiration board. Even though I’m a Pinterest fanatic, sometimes there’s just nothing like the tactile sensation of ripping out a beautiful page from a magazine and pinning it where I can see it every day.
Image above: I’m in love with the work of French photographer Christian Chaize, and this print in the guest bedroom is part of his Praia Piquinia subscription series, in which he captures the same beach in Portugal as it evolves every year. I already have five others displayed in different rooms of the house and can’t wait to receive my next one. The lamp is from West Elm.
Image above: Since I’m an avid cook and entertainer, the kitchen was one of the most challenging elements of the design process, as I wanted to get everything just right! It came together as one of my favorite spaces in the house, with stained white oak cabinetry, super thick floating shelves that keep our dishes within close reach and incredibly easy-to-care-for countertops in “Buttermilk” Caesarstone. All of our appliances are Electrolux Icon, and I couldn’t be happier with our huge stove, double ovens and (my ultimate indulgence) two dishwashers that always seem to be full. I love when our friends come over and drink wine at the barstools while I put the finishing touches on dinner. It really is the place where everyone congregates!
Image above: Our kitchen, dining and living rooms are one big open space that makes the entire area feel so light and airy. Since our endless search for the perfect dining table came up empty-handed, we had one built in sturdy white oak with a casual bench on one side and upholstered Restoration Hardware chairs on the other. We once squeezed 14 people around the table for one very cozy holiday party! The recycled glass vase is from Anthropologie, and my current obsession is filling it with quince branches.
Image above: The entire upstairs is painted “Seafoam” from Restoration Hardware, and this cozy nook is where I keep a lot of my favorite books from childhood, like Little Women, Anne of Green Gables and Emma. The leaning bookcase is from Crate and Barrel.
Image above: Luckily, my office is one of my favorite spots in the house, since I usually spend eight hours a day there. Great light floods in from the big French doors that lead to the terrace, and the light, neutral palette feels really fresh and energizing every morning. My glass desk is from West Elm, chair is Aidan Gray from Layla Grayce, mirror is from Restoration Hardware and small painting is by Katherine Sandoz. I’m usually lucky enough to have gorgeous flowers left over from a photo shoot to put on my desk, and these beauties are by The Byrd Collective.
Image above: Needless to say, we live outside during the hot Austin summers. My very favorite way to spend a Saturday is to invite friends over for a day of swimming, Adam’s perfect margaritas and throwing something yummy on the grill. All our outdoor furniture is from Restoration Hardware, and these steel planters are filled with agave and silver ponyfoot.
Image above: One of my very favorite things about the house is the symmetry between the front and back doors that accordion-fold to a 10-foot opening. Walking up to the front of the house, you can see all the way through to the downtown skyline view in the back. Much to Adam’s dismay, I’m constantly pruning hot pink blooms from our rose bushes to display around the house — I enjoy them so much more that way! The exterior of the house is white stucco with a concrete tile roof, giving it a contemporary Mediterranean vibe.
