Our First Urban Cottage

There’s always an excitement being in a new city, well, especially if that city is Austin. When my then fiance summoned me to move to his favorite city, the first order of business was to get a place together. We bought a unit at the 360 Condos when it was pre-selling. I didn’t even know where exactly it was but the model looked good so we jumped in. It’s all about location, location, location right? Well, how about the space, space, space? At a whopping 754 sq ft, I sure did miss my little cottage and my front yard with identical topiaries at the front door. I was determined to make our tiny space our very own urban cottage. Cement walls paired with vintage clocks, geometric wall paper amidst cozy pieces and white office furniture with a birdcage. It’s all about making it personal, right? I was giddy with excitement when it was featured at The Austin-American Statesman paper on February 2011, the web version is here. Some of the photos are by my friend Andrew.

About Maureen

Details are my passion. From curating vignettes to designing spaces. I thrive in finding the finds and just discovered the art of collecting...all while sipping on a cafe au lait & a french macaroon in hand.
