Cool Hunting || Open Shelving

The good news? We have made a whole lot of decisions on our new house build here in Austin.  The bad news? If you drive by it you will still just see an empty lot.  C’mon, universe! Let’s build a house!  We are getting closer. I swear. Just not moving at the speed I would like.  Our most recent progress has been in the kitchen.
