This casual compound designed by the San Antonio architecture firm Lake/Flato is the second home for a busy couple who lives near San Francisco and loves the water. High above Lake Austin, the main house keeps the couple walking on air, thanks to a catwalk that connects it to one of the three out buildings. Fern Santini‘s ruggedly casual décor makes for relaxed living, and is punctuated on high with stylishly whimsical pendant lighting. Porches encourage outdoor living, and separate yoga studio and exercise room are for well-being. A lake pavilion and boat house complete the setting. OMG this home is stunning! So open and airy and it seems to have great flow. Plus, the furnishings make it modern yet cottagey. Perfection!
I didn't want to like it, because I was feeling grumpy. By the time the last pic drifted past, all was well. Except for not having a bean's chance to ever walk through the place, it was perfect. Air – visual adventure! – color – gravitas… it's all there. Very nice stuff indeed.
J'en suis éblouie! Tout est parfait!
