“It’s easy to love a project when gifted a backdrop of materials selected by Kelly Wearstler,” Wittenbraker remarks. “This residence exemplifies our appreciation for bold upholstery patterns, unexpected color palettes and all-encompassing wallcoverings.”
For her client moving into the high-rise from an Austin neighborhood, Wittenbraker sought to enhance the experience with inspired interiors embracing an innovative vibe. To do that, she aimed for streamlined living spaces that don’t distract from the views while creating colorful, expressive and layered bedrooms. There’s show-stopping Schumacher Serengeti on a sectional sofa, a custom Gabriel Scott dining pendant and Maison C Natura Morta wallpaper in the powder bathroom.
“By the time I’m hired for a job, the client is already a little willing to push the limits,” she explains. “I want them to be inspired when they walk into their home, and oftentimes that takes a leap of faith.”
