Tour Jewelry Mogul Kendra Scott’s Expansive Lake Austin Home

The peaceful majesty of these principle spaces can be attributed to a much more unsung feature, the soft colour and suede-like texture of Venetian plaster partitions, so luxurious that the surfaces them selves almost sigh. Even so, the kids and their buddies stampede through the spaces blissfully unfettered, a acquainted and comforting cacophony for Scott, a indigenous of Kenosha, Wisconsin, who also grew up in a family of 6 kids.

When compared to other subdued aspects like the tonal stile-and-rail wall panels in the grand salon, the swooping sash railing that accentuates the curves of the most important staircase, or the brass hardware on the doorways and windows—Scott created the home’s literal jewelry, using inspiration from the finery of previous doorways in Florence, Italy—an artwork assortment of primarily midcentury abstract paintings is bolder and extra energetic. “The artwork gives instant authenticity to the architecture,” says Santini, who worked with artwork advisor Amy Sawtelle to curate the items. “Their vintage lends some age to the dwelling, which has a historic spirit but manufacturer-new bones.”

The hushed-and-handsome equation is strikingly reversed in a few maverick areas where by chromatically drenched partitions are playful, even provocative. In the loft-design library, for occasion, Scott hosts business meetings in opposition to a tremendous-shiny teal backdrop that bears its blatant brushstrokes with pride and offers almost everything from coloration-coded books to brass animal sculptures an impressionistic reflection on the walls. “This home is all about depth and drama,” suggests Santini, whose patron saint for the undertaking was the late American designer Tony Duquette, known for his enchanting and extravagant jewelry and interiors.

Scott tasked one particular of her oldest buddies, nearby inside designer Amy Lutz, principal of Butter Lutz Interiors, with the home’s more informal areas. Lutz’s theatrical takes on the kids’ rooms, for occasion, are possibly galaxy-inclined (starstruck murals, an orbiting Sputnik chandelier) or Neptunian in nature (splashy porthole-size aquariums). In the wine cellar, lined in fiery fumed eucalyptus, an archival image of siren Sophia Loren, in hostess-with-the-mostess method, presides in excess of a bottle selection that’s large on Domaines Ott rosé, the homeowner’s most loved pour. And to glean atmospheric cues for a basement “speakeasy”—subterranean rec rooms stir Scott’s childhood nostalgia—Lutz embarked on a reconnaissance mission to the SoHo House in West Hollywood.

The designer’s sultry interpretation of the private-club vibe is embodied in the speakeasy’s moody palette, threadbare Turkish rugs, storied fuel-station neon, and vintage photographs of new music legends like Janis Joplin and fellow Austinite Willie Nelson. Although the house is architecturally anchored by a well-stocked bar made of electrifyingly veined Kenya Black marble, its leisurely diversions—shuffleboard, pool, and point out-of-the-artwork McIntosh deejay equipment—have unsurprisingly emerged as the most important points of interest, thinking of the vast majority of the home’s lodgers are less than the age of 21.

“Even if the speakeasy doesn’t automatically suit the total vibe of the residence, it however feels like it belongs,” says Lutz, unwittingly emphasizing the transportive character of the Scott estate, the place historic allure meets modern-day-day panache in an enchanting forest, on a meandering lakeshore, deep in the coronary heart of Texas.
