Weekend Away: Austin’s Aesthetic Charms

Over the past year, I’ve been to many parts of Texas, but Austin stands out as one of my favorites. I visited again this past weekend and was reminded that this town has an exuberant charm that’s hard to resist. Despite its relative smallness, Austin has a completely unique aesthetic that I love. It’s no wonder it’s a center for film and other arts. There’s so much, visually, to take in here!

I spent some time on South Congress, the bustling thoroughfare near downtown, which is packed with antique shops, boutiques, vintage stores, and the many food trucks that have become their own kind of dining experience here. No matter where I turned there was something interesting to look at, whether a shop display, the gated garden of a craftsman bungalow, or simply the 1950’s-style signs contrasted against the vibrant blue sky.

Here are some shots I took while strolling. They were taken along South Congress (also known as SoCo), at the San Jose Hotel, and a handful of shops I love, including Uncommon Objects, Allen boots, Big Top Candy Shop, and Swag.

About

For as long as I can remember, I’ve been fascinated by design and the subtle impact of our surroundings. Some of my earliest influences still resonate – I think of the dark woods and textured lodens of my father’s shooting club, the smell of fresh paint on a new canvas, and the bold symmetry of the Philip Johnson Glass house just down the street. For me, it was a natural path to become an Interior Designer. I love what I do. I’ve created this Journal to share my thoughts, finds and design inspirations. I hope you enjoy it!
