The Family

When Agatha June and Jeremy Erwin bought a 975-square-foot bungalow in Austin, Texas, back in 2008, they had all the room they needed. But over time both craved more creative space (Agatha’s business is home-based; Jeremy is a musician.)

The Home

Local design-build firm Hatch Works found the solution literally right outside their door. The lot was big enough to build another house — one that was about 500 square feet larger. Agatha and Jeremy eventually turned their former home into an Airbnb. High ceilings and loads of windows make the new place incredibly airy, and it’s infused with the couple’s eclectic boho style. “We love every single spot,” Agatha says. “When you don’t have a giant house, that’s huge.”

Living Room

Velvet furniture pops prettily next to white walls and black window frames. Putting the violet daybed (from Joybird) and moss green sectional (from West Elm) diagonally across from each other brought balance to the room. “We joke that the daybed is the world’s most expensive dog bed because it’s where our dog, Alfie, hangs,” Agatha says. Pro tip: Sometimes what’s not in a room helps it look larger. There's no ceiling or doorway trim here!

Kitchen

“I wasn’t sure about putting shelves in front of the windows at first, but Agatha sold me on the benefits of having extra storage with all the light shining through,” Jeremy says. The effect is made even cooler because the shelves are anchored by a striking 65-inch-tall custom hood. Bringing in other wood tones, including oak floors and chevron paneling on the island, boosts the warmth. P.S. Check out that narrow pantry for the win!

Dining Nook

The ideal li’l spot for a banquette was built off the living room. This seating may look custom-made, but Agatha and Jeremy lucked out with West Elm benches that fit just right, plus a table from Rove Concepts. For impact, they had the walls and ceiling painted black (Black Magic by Sherwin-Williams). With windows on all three walls, the nook doesn’t feel cave-ish at all.

Master Bathroom

“A separate tub and shower were the necessities; the double vanity was a bonus,” Agatha says. Design firm Hatch Works was able to squeeze the couple’s entire wish list into this narrow but long space, keeping the vibe natural with a gray-green floating vanity (painted Pewter Green by Sherwin-Williams) and matte black terra-cotta tiles by Clé. A hand-punched brass Moroccan pendant, found on Etsy and brass fixtures add a little glam.

Master Bedroom

From the wall (the funky mirror is by Zuo) to the floor (the colorful rug is by Justina Blakeney x Loloi), this room is packed with style. “In a smaller house you have to embrace that your storage is all out in the open,” Agatha says, “so I display our blankets on a ladder like art.” The upholstered bed is from Blu Dot.
