GOLD- Residential New Construction – Outdoor Living
The Texas ranch’s topography and ecosystems included lush green hills, grassy plains, a pristine river, a 12-acre lake, and scattered wetlands. Time is spent in the outdoor kitchen, lounging and dining areas.
Carlos Motta Espasso collection guide the furnishings surround the patios, pool deck, sitting areas, and outdoor dining. The appreciation for a collected design approach includes an ancient Roman Cipollino block serving as an outdoor bench.
The land adjacent to the residence’s grounds is an enclosed game preserve and the owner desired a viewing location without disturbing them. The interior of the rondavel has seemingly simple furnishings. Upon closer inspection, the “simplicity” of the interiors reveals that thoughtfulness of the selections- a custom ‘bench’ made of ancient cypress harvested regionally, animal hide floor coverings, a primitive chopping block- Late 19th C., custom bar stools, woven rugs, and light fixture sitting on shelves like in a traditional Southwest adobe dwelling.
