Designer Sara Story grew up an oilman’s daughter on the family’s 500-acre ranch in the Texas Hill Country. The landscape and the lifestyle served as a formative influence – the beautiful, sprawling wild of oaks and junipers, stone and mesa, deer and snakes. Now an established Manhattan designer, Story decided, a few years ago, to establish her own Hill Country home to offer the same cherished, grounding experiences to her children.

She chose San Antonio architecture firm Lake|Flato who had previously built her father’s residence nearby. It was their sensitivity to scale, siting, and materials that won her over, as they seek to root a building in the landscape. Story’s preference for “lean, cerebral luxury” mixed perfectly. The resulting estate which follows the mesa’s edge, is comprised of a compound of finely tailored edifices clad in creamy Texas limestone.

The limestone exterior is echoed in the suede walls of the master bedroom. Story’s crisp and refined style is evident here with bedding to match. The Palladio Sheets have a simple construction of Italian percale bordered with a narrow cord, speaking to a simple, modern elegance. They are found, also, in the children’s quarters, which are designed with white-lacquer bunk beds that “resemble modernist Pullman berths.” See more of this exquisite home in Architectural Digest.

  1. Like most of you I often watch celebrity physicians on tv introducing and describing products
    with certainty as “the solution”. Or should we eat them without excess, balancing those health-promoting foods
    with tortilla chips, soft drinks, white flour and processed dairy, foods nonexistent
    in the event the genetic code for optimal health physiology was being formed.

    The simple answer is why these pills are specially formulated with five things that are acknowledged
    to force your system into a higher gear and get rid of fat and calories.

  2. Thanks , I have recently been searching for information approximately this subject for ages and yours is the greatest I have discovered
    so far. However, what concerning the bottom line?
    Are you certain about the source?

  3. For latest information you have to pay a quick visit world-wide-web and on the web I
    found this website as a most excellent web page for hottest
    updates.

  4. This design is incredible! You obviously know how to keep a
    reader entertained. Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my
    own blog (well, almost…HaHa!) Fantastic job. I really loved what you had to say,
    and more than that, how you presented it. Too cool!

  5. Aw, this was a very good post. Spending some time and actual effort to
    generate a very good article… but what can I say…
    I hesitate a lot and don’t manage to get nearly anything
    done.

  6. May I simply just say what a comfort to uncover an individual who truly knows what they’re discussing on the web.
    You actually know how to bring a problem to light and make it important.
    More people should read this and understand this side of your story.
    I was surprised that you’re not more popular because you certainly have the gift.
