Rollingwood Color Masterclass

Featured on the Austin NARI Tour of Remodeled Homes & Tribeza Interiors Tour 2023

Paint colors & finishes by ColorGenie in collaboration with CG&S interior designers

“The happiest house in Rollingwood.” That’s how we refer to this bright, colorful home located in Austin’s Rollingwood neighborhood. It certainly stands out against the Texas Modern homes that are popping up around it. And it’s distinct from the mid-century homes Rollingwood is known for.

Instead of strong horizontals, the home was originally a squarish box perched upon a hillside, with a large, inviting front porch and small level two. Our client Genie—who works as color consultant ColorGenie celebrating the chromatic spectrum—painted the facade indigo, avocado, scarlet, and pink.

Genie and Randy approached us to do a whole house renovation, new outdoor living and pool, and a third story “crows’ nest” addition to enjoy the downtown view. There are so many wonderful details about this house. The first thing you notice when you enter is the striking stair in the multi-color hallway.

Two unique bathrooms bookend level two. The first is the “Cassette Tape Bath”, named for its playful cassette tape wallpaper and floor tile that spells out the Journey lyric “Don’t Stop Believin’”. The opposite bath features a vintage laundry washing table Genie thrifted, now retrofitted as the vanity sink. Terrazzo tile surrounds the sink and adorns the floor.

Level three is purposely simple. The walls are white. There is no wallpaper or fun tile. The standout of the space is the stair spindle detail that rises from floor to ceiling defining the full extent of the well, creating a snappy screen of red.

The third floor is the home’s flex space. A space for workouts or meditation. Or a place for impromptu dance parties or early morning sunrises. It’s whatever you want it to be.
