Modern Bungalow / Backyard Project


Well hello there!  I know it has been a while…baby Max is keeping me very busy over here.  I wanted to share my design ideas for a little outdoor project we have started to talk about for our house.  Let’s just say our yard needs a lot of work.  We haven’t really touched it since we moved in except for occasional lawn grooming. We will most likley start this project in the Fall (Summer is Austin is not a good time to plant anything!) but I have started to gather some ideas that I wanted to share.

The Goals:

Goal: Curb Appeal. Our house has a modern look similar to the photo above.  I would love a clean front lawn with minimal agave plants lining the fence.


Goal:  Outdoor seating + lounge area.  A place to hang out and read a book outside would be great.  We have a few chairs on our portch right now but I think an outdoor sofa situation would be great.


Goal: Outdoor dining area.  We love having friends over and always try and to take advantage of living in a warm climate.  Love the look of the photo above.


Goal:  Mixing materials. I like how these large concrete slabs look with the grass and black rocks.


Goal:  Modern play area for Max + friends.  How cool is this play house?!

Post 3 - ORC Wallpaper

Here at Stone Textile, we are often smitten with statement-making wallpaper, and these days it seems like everyone else is too! With so many gorgeous (and often removable) options available, even renters can jump on the recently-revived wallpaper bandwagon. Lately I’ve been spotting products that remind me of the amazing accent wall from the One Room Challenge, covered with a black and gray abstract pattern from Lindsay Cowles. The wall’s print is a little hard to describe – is it tie-dyed? Marbleized? Geometric? It’s a beautiful Rorschach Test for sure! If you’re into it as much as we are, check out these great finds that share the same abstract, painterly look.

Modern Baby Gear

Interiors By Stone Textile_Dining Room

Well, after almost two weeks at home with Maxwell our house has turned into baby central. The designer in me has been very selective with what gear we chose.  I know the endless amounts of baby clutter is bound to happen but we are trying hard to keep it at a minimum (we will see how long that lasts!)  I tried to focus on the more  modern + practical pieces since our lower level is an open floor plan (dining room pre-baby featured above).  Here are a few of our favorite pieces so far…


The Nuna Leaf // Max loves swaying back and forth in this stylish rocker. Last night he slept in there for almost two hours!   We got the charcoal one — highly recommended.


The Bloom Fresco High Chair //  Max can use this piece as an infant up to toddler age.  I love the sleek design and how it can serve as a little bassinet for our lower level.  We went with black + metallic silver to match our kitchen.


Lion Baby Blanket //  I love this piece, perfect for tummy time.  I purchased it at Anthropologie a few months ago.


The Bloom Coco Rocker //  This is a rocker I got for the office.  Max can rock away in style when I take him to work.


Custom Boppy Pillow Cover // I love the Boppy pillow and just ordered a fun geometric cover for ours.


Tribeza Interiors Issue / Modern Bungalow Home Tour

Interiors By Stone Textile_Living Room

Local love is the best.  I am honored to have my home featured in the Tribeza Interiors Issue (Austin’s premier lifestyle magazine) .  Austin friends, the magazine hits newsstands today.   We had the pleasure of working with the very talented photographer, Casey Dunn.  I loved the direction he took and the photos really turned out beautifully.  Big thank you to the Tribeza team!    Above:  My dog Toby modeling in our living room.  Yes, he matches.

This shot is a favorite.  I worked with a local woodworker to design this custom book shelf and entertainment center.

Best Of 2014 / Interiors By Stone Textile


2014 was quite the year interior wise.  I was lucky enough to work on many design projects in Austin and throughout the county with our Edesign feature.   I wanted to share a few of my favorite design moments with you as the year comes to a close.  Big thank you to my amazing clients for letting me into their homes this year.  I have enjoyed working with each and every one of you and am very proud of what we accomplished together.  There are big things in store for 2015 and I will be back to taking regular clients starting in early May after my maternity leave.  Please email me at to discuss any Spring / Summer 2015 projects.  Happy New Year!  xx Elizabeth


Having my home featured in Lonny Magazine’s October issue was a highlight.  Living Room + Dining Room featured above.

Modern Bungalow / Master Bedroom

Elizabeth Mollen_Bedroom

Today I am sharing photos from our master bedroom–the final home tour post from last month’s Lonny  feature!  When we were deciding on paint I knew I wanted to go bold and paint the entire room a dark gray.  After painting what seemed like 100 test swatches I chose BM Temptation Gray.  We have a ton of natural light in the space so painting the walls a dark color works here.  It has turned out to be one of my favorite rooms in the house, the perfect spot to relax after a long day at work.  Sources:  Bed:  vintage / Rose Bowl Flea Market in LA–reupholstered with fabric from Hickory Chair Co, Wallpaper Panels / Calico Wallpaper, Lamps / One Kings Lane, Pillows / Custom Stone Textile + lumbar is also custom by Carley Khan Textiles, Mint Jewelry Hand / Vintage

We made it!  I am so excited to share the master bedroom One Room Challenge reveal with you today.  It has been a crazy design filled 6 weeks—make sure to check out previous posts here (Week No. 1, Week No. 2, Week No. 3, Week No.4, Week No. 5).  Thank you for all of your sweet comments and encouragement along the way.  The room really turned out to be one of my favorite spaces.  Now, let’s get to the photos…(sources listed throughout)


Big thank you to ORC sponsors, Lamps Plus, Minted, and Wayfair
I loved how the pieces we chose from these fabulous design sites turned out.  Jonathan Adler Brass Ceiling Pendant / Lamps Plus, Artwork above the bed / Minted, Patterned Duvet / Wayfair


As you know I love sourcing vintage furniture and accessories for my clients.  At the beginning of the ORC, I took a little road trip to Dallas and found some amazing pieces for this space.  The nightstands above + the chrome lamps are from Scout Design Studio.   See their transformations (week No. 3 + week No. 4).  The bed is from CB2 and I just love how it looks against the Storm Print Wallpaper by Lindsay Cowels.


The diamond shaped mirror is vintage from Chairish.  We spray painted is matte black .

The faux fur stool is from Home Goods and the marble + gold planters are vintage.




The curtains are custom made by Bolt Fabrics.  I love the pop of color.  The mini stool is vintage and reupholstered in a blue marbled fabric.


The armoire is vintage (such a great find!), artwork is from ORC sponsor Minted, black+ gold console table is vintage.


Stone Textile_ORC_25


We got a little crafty  and used the extra wallpaper to line the insides of the armoire.







The pillow mix we went with is one of my favorite parts of the space.  The mix includes: Kelly Wearstler Feline pillows , Stone Textile Tie Dye Pillows, and one beaded pillow from Home Goods.


What the space looked like 6 weeks ago…


And what is looks like now…



A special thank you goes out to Linda from Calling It Home for asking me to be a part this design adventure.  We had a lot of fun and are up for round two!  You must check out what the other designers have done.  I cannot wait to read through everyone’s reveal posts.  I am so impressed by what this group has accomplished in 6 short weeks!  You can also follow along on Instagram using #oneroomchallenge

Modern Bungalow / The Kitchen + Outdoor Living Space

Elizabeth Mollen_Kitchen 5

At the beginning of the month, our Austin home was featured in Lonny Magazine’s October makeover issue.  The kitchen was in bad shape when we purchased our house last year.  We were dealing with lime green walls, dated cabinets + fixtures, and some unattractive backsplash tile.  We did not have to totally gut this kitchen but, we did need to make some cosmetic changes to the space.  See the before + after photo (taken from the same spot) below.  We painted the walls + peninsula white, added shelving, demoed the original backsplash and replaced it with marble subway + geometric tiles, replaced the pendant lighting, painted the wood cabinets BM Snowfall White, and replaced the hardware with brass pulls.  It was a process and we are very happy with the new look.  It is amazing what paint can do to a space right?


Kitchen Sources:  Paint:  BM Snowfall White + Ebony King (dark walls), Tile: The Tile Shop, Stools: From Target and spayed matte black with gold detail,  Pendant Lighting: CB2, Accessories:  Vintage + Barney’s New York.

To finish up the lower level I also wanted to share our outdoor space with you.  During the house hunt, it was important for us to find a place with an outdoor entertaining space.  This deck is perfect for relaxing + entertaining.

The One Room Challenge / Week No. 5

photo 2-1

Welcome to week No. 5!  This One Room Challenge has gone by incredibly fast–I cannot believe we are already planning our little photo shoot.  If you are just stopping by make sure to catch up  and see what we have accomplished so far (Week No. 1, Week No. 2, Week No. 3, Week No. 4).  This week was all about accessories, my favorite part of the design process.   I had a lot of fun accessorizing this space.  Above, you can see that we are using the Kelly Wearstler Feline fabric, in black,  mixed with a few Stone Textile pieces for pillows.

The brush stroke duvet cover from ORC sponsor Wayfair
is incredible in person.  I also picked up our custom curtains and hung them this week, I am so glad I went with this deep turquoise color opposed to black.  The beaded pillow + decorative box is from Home Goods + the copper woven mini pillow is from our Stone Textile shop.

I also picked up our little vintage brass stool from the upholsterer –the pop of blue will be really nice against the darker curtains.

Our marble planters are planted and ready to go for the photo shoot.  Lets hope I don’t kill them before the weekend.  Love the marble against the B+W Storm Wallpaper by Lindsay Cowels.

We said goodbye to the huge ceiling fan and replaced it with this beautiful Jonathan Adler  fixture from ORC sponsor, Lamps Plus.  SUCH. A. DIFFERENCE.

The black diamond shaped mirror was hung as well…

My assistant, Audrey, completed yet another perfect DIY project.  We used the extra wallpaper to spruce up the vintage armoire. I love the rich brown with the black + white pattern.

Modern Bungalow / Living + Dining Space

Elizabeth Mollen_Living Room

Today I am sharing photos + sources of our living dining space.  Like I said in the Lonny Articlethis was probably the hardest space to design.  As much as I love open floor plans, they can be tricky at times.  The photo above is of our living room.  I still cannot believe I have a bright fuchsia pink rug in our house!  My husband was very easy going during the whole design process but he did want some color.  Not sure if a hot pink rug was what he had in mind.  The good news is that I am not sick of it after a year of living here.

Sources:  Sofa / MGBW, Burl Wood Lamps / Vintage from Chairish, Pillows / Stone Textile, Side Chairs / Vintage + reupholstered in Stone Textile Tribe Print Fabric, Peach Lucite Nesting Tables / Vintage from Etsy, Loveseat / Vintage from One Kings Lane,  Rug / Overdye from, Curtains / Stone Textile Black Diamond Print Fabric.

These peach lucite nesting tables from the 1960′s were one of the first things purchased for the space.  One of my favorite color combinations is peach and brown so pairing them with the Stone Textile Tribe Print in Brown works well.

Elizabeth Mollen_Living Room 3

We needed a very large coffee table for the space so after months of looking I decided to purchase four end tables, by Control Brand,  and put them together.    It is now the perfect space for all of our coffee table books + collection of decorative accessories.

Elizabeth Mollen_Dining Room 2

The dining room had to work with the living room so I designed the two spaces together.  The Milo Baughman chairs were also purchased early on.  They were originally a peachy color and were in desperate need of a good reupholstery job.  I chose a solid heavyweight black fabric so these chairs stay versatile and maintain their MCM vibe.   The were purchased at one of my favorite vintage stores in Dallas called Give + Take.   The lucite table base is a favorite.  I found this in West Palm Beach and had it shipped to Austin.  I had a smoked glass top made for it.  We sadly may have to put this in storage when the baby starts walking — def NOT KID FRIENDLY!  The artwork is by Austin based artist, Elisa Gomez.   The colors are made for the space.  I love that it has a graffiti like feel to it.   Our dining room light fixture was a Craigslist find–$75!

Elizabeth Mollen_Guest Bathroom

I knew I wanted to do a unique wallpaper in the guest bathroom.  When I was in New York, I came across a vintage wallpaper store called Second Hand Rose.  I have a thing for metallics so when I saw this geometric mylar paper from the 70′s I knew it had to come home with me.

One Room Challenge / Week No. 4

photo 1

Welcome to week No. 4.  Wow, this whole ORC thing is really flying by!  We are getting down to the wire here.  Take a look at what we have accomplished so far (week No.1, week No. 2, Week No. 3)  I am happy to report that we have made a lot of progress this week.  A lot of furniture has been delivered and a lot of DIY projects have been completed.  Above:  The Silhouette Bed by CB2 is pretty amazing in person.  I love how it looks with our wallpaper by Lindsay Cowels.

photo 2

The vintage nightstands we purchased at Scout Design Studio, in Dallas, came back from being professionally lacquered.  The pop of color is just what this room needed.  They are so shiny and pretty.  I could live in a room full of lacquered pieces.  I may have a lacquer problem….

photo 3

Since I am pregnant, I am trying to stay clear of toxic fumes.  That has been interesting when you design + remodel houses for a living.  Luckily my assistant is an A+ DIY-er.  She tackled the white lamp shades this week.  They look so much better in black.  Wait until you see them against the wallpaper.

photo 4

She also spray-painted the vintage diamond shaped mirror matte black.  It will make such a statement on the wall.




photo 1-2

A bunch of accessories have also arrived. We picked out this abstract black + white duvet coverlet from ORC sponsor, Wayfair
I love mixing bold prints so this was a fun choice for the end of the bed against the wallpaper.  We also received some beautiful modern art from Minted’s Art Marketplace.  Looking forward to hanging both pieces on the walls.  Thank you to Wayfair
for sponsoring!

photo 2-1

This week we will be working on finalizing our bedding + pillow selections for the bed, hanging curtains, installing light fixtures, hanging art, upholstering the vintage bench, doing the armoire DIY, and setting up the space for our little week 6 photo shoot.


The Stone Textile Tie Dye Patchwork Pillow is a front runner for the bed andWayfair also sent two of these amazing black leather shag rugs for the space.  They look great at the foot of each side of the bed.
