Carol and Phil's Austin home has one of the most unusual — and striking — dining rooms I've seen. The walls are made entirely of stone!
The 1936 cottage was built by a stone mason, so the stone walls are original to the home. He used what is now the dining room as a garage. "Phil and I are both drawn to history and old things — but I’m also an artist and love the quirky," says Carol. "Even with our focus on old things, we end up embracing absurdly mixed styles... The kitchen is more machine age, with its chrome light fixtures, while the living room runs to more Victorian/Edwardian." And the dining room? "The dining room is just an amazing space and defies classification," says Carol.
Imagine throwing a dinner party here! With low lighting and candles, it'd be like you're dining in a cozy cave.
