We recently took a trip to Austin to attend the annual Austin Psych Fest music festival. As always when we travel, we find design inspiration. While there, we were able to explore Hyde Park and North Loop. We love looking at buildings and especially houses wherever we travel. We could have spent a lot more time there, but nevertheless, here are some interesting houses for our collection.
