The three-story Blue Lake Retreat is located in Marble Falls, Texas. The residence was designed by Lake Flato Architects to integrate naturally into the steep topography. With living spaces on the top floor and four bedrooms on the two lower floors, the timber structure is connected to the hillside by a bridge and boasts a cantilevered deck that floats just above the lake.
CB2 was also a major furnishing source in this bedroom, as the lighting and matching patterned pillows were found there. The striped throw at the edge of the bed is from Etsy.
Two matching Article side chairs face the sliding door leading to the deck.
Four hooks and a bench, both from CB2, create an entryway next to the front door.

The barware, candle holders, dining set, lantern, terracotta planters, outdoor seating, and side table are all from the Modern by Dwell Magazine collection for Target. The fire pit is from Restoration Hardware.
Surrounded by plants from yucca grower Hoven Riley, the casita’s porch shelters planters from Brown Dog Gardens and two Acapulco chairs.

The Pee-wee Herman print that inspired the casita’s color palette hangs above a chair from Hill’s Pulpoetry series.
Hill sits  on a Casalino chair from Design Within Reach in the living room; on the wall is Quivers, a sculpture by her daughter, Claire Cusak. Collaborator George Sacaris made the stump table.
Sixteen-foot-tall glass walls, paired with seven-foot overhangs and three-foot solar screens, optimize the home’s passive climate control and capture views of the  valley that unfurls across the couple’s 160-acre property.
Gawthrop, an avid hang-glider who is a member of the U.S. Soaring Team, wanted the home to evoke flight; the standing-seam roof from Metal Sale is held up by wire struts to resemble a plane’s wing.  In the foreground is the rock formation designer Alan Nicholson had excavated.
A 70-square-foot reflecting pool greets visitors as they approach the home’s elemental north entrance.
He also opted for light-colored materials, like seafoam-green cement tile by Projecto Mosaico and birch plywood millwork.
