This weekend I attended the second annual Tribeza home tour with some friends. It was 65 and sunny in Austin and I was alone for the weekend (no man, no kids, just the dog and me), for the first time in a long time. The solitude was as glorious as the weather was and lunch at Cenote and then driving through charming Austin neighborhoods to check out the curated homes was a Saturday well spent. There are three homes from the tour that were the unanimous favorites for my girlfriends and me. Up first is Meredith Ellis. We viewed her charming, detailed, adorable, smart home in Travis Heights and I must say in meeting her for the first time she herself is as stunning as her home. Below her featured house and more of her classic, eclectic work. See her entire portfolio and more about her design company here.
