Our Austin Casa || Mid-Century Modern Master Bedroom Reveal

Every room needs a goal, a vision.  Some rooms are harder than others. Our office for example: I spent just about the entire time the house was under construction trying to figure out what that space looked like. Is it an office with a pull-out guest bed or a guest bedroom with a desk in it? Will the kids use it or is it a totally off limits adults-only space?  Our master bedroom did not have that identity crisis.

Our Austin Casa || Parker’s Bedroom Design

To design a house from scratch, it sometimes feels, is to be a fortune teller.  It’s to look into the distant and not-so-distant future and see what you will need from this space. In short, to ask not what you can do for this space, but what this space can do for you.  It’s to imagine the pitter patter of an exact amount of child-sized feet.
