Day 29: HISTORY


After a little digging in the San Antonio Library's Texana & Genealogy archives, we were able to find information about the property dating back to 1890! Deed purchases, tenant records and beautiful hand drawn Sanborn maps were among some of the things we discovered.

Day 28: PROPERTY FINDS


This historic home had some hidden gems, from the 11ft ceilings to these beautifully vivid 100+ year old cement tiles! There were also some long forgotten tools found way up in a tree and red Groesbeck bricks found buried in the backyard, which originally traveled by train, (before cars existed) to make their way to this home in 1897!!!

Day 27: LANDSCAPING


Drought tolerant plants were a no brainier for this landscaping design. We choose white marble rocks and black planters to further compliment the home’s exterior color palette.

Day 26: HARDWARE & VANITIES 


Matte black hardware provided the perfect contrast to the white cabinets and doors. Vanity colors got bold in both guest bathrooms. The gray double vanity in the master bath was simply too elegant to pass up!
