Fans of the annual Modern Home Tour, you have another opportunity to check out some interesting Austin homes with the upcoming Smarter Spaces Tour. Produced by the same tour organizers as the MHT, this year’s Smarter Spaces Tour will be held Saturday, September 7th from 11-5.  Here’s a peek at what I’m looking forward to seeing up close and personal…

You had me at yellow door:

Newcastle Homes

So digging the exterior color banding and the Southern style aqua blue porch ceiling of this home by CG&S. I also envy the solar panels, the layered landscaping and the cute garage apartment.

CG&S Design-Build

What the what? So curious about this ceiling lighting treatment in this Barley-Pfeiffer Architects apartment remodel near UT. I’ve worked with two clients in this building, so it’ll be interesting to see how someone else handles the space.

Don’t you just love the mid-century balconies on this building? Not a bad view, either!

Want to WIN a pair of tickets to this tour? In honor of Newcastle’s bright yellow door (applause!) leave a comment below and tell me what color you’d paint your front door if you didn’t have to worry about what your neighbors or the pesky HOA would say. I’ll announce a winner this Friday!
