Austin is a city rich in Texas tradition. And yet, with such a cool food and music scene, it's constantly evolving its vibe, testing just how creative you can get — while still being rooted in Lone Star history. The design scene there is equally interesting: unpretentious, accessible, and a touch old-school. These Austin homes (and a few hotels) all offer decor ideas — no matter where you live.
