Our Austin Casa || The Living Room Reveal

It sounds strange, but I feel seriously weepy about publishing this last room in our series of room reveals. If you really want to go all the way back, the impetus of this home was us being in town for the 4th of July circa 2015 and visiting our cousins’ almost finished newly constructed home.
